This looks like something Team Glyos might have done - the mostly metallic blue robot has spritzes of grey, silver, and black to bring it to life. Little greeblies are painted on as is a grey sensor and a big black eye. The subtle weathering may not be visible under all lighting conditions, and of course the cables on the feet are absent as most latter-day Disney droids dropped them. You still get rolling wheels and can completely dismantle the figure, removing all three limbs and the dome if you're in to such things.
Since there are hundreds of these buggers, I can't honestly tell you that this is an amazing revelation that will change your collection forever. It's just R2-D2 in new colors again, and the colors are different enough that I would say Shep and D-O make the set worth buying - the other are also good.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon.
