The body is effectively the "build-a-droid" body we've been getting over the last decade. R2-D2's dome once more has the "bald spot" on top of his dome - it should be blue, this one is silver. The figure is on the vintage cardback - the selling point, and Hasbro knows it, given that they've not released this retro-style package over the whopping fifteen years run of The Vintage Collection. R2-D2 also is missing some blue detail at the bottom of his left-hand side of his can, a few dome details are left undecorated, and the central eye is matte instead of glossy. It should be - and usually is - glossy.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
