Hasbro didn't make a 3 3/4-inch scale D-O, but Disney did - and this is it, and it's really good. It seems to have some of the best sculpting and deco, with extra greeblies under the black eyes,* more paint on the "hair," and added decoration on the wheel and body. It lacks the silver on the rod joining the neck to the wheel body, but aside from that they did a nice job making sure it looks excellent. If you just need a droid to stand around, this is it.
I look forward to seeing what Hasbro does for D-O in this scale down the road, but until then this one is really good. Disney's BB-8 and Chopper were also arguably superior, so this is a worthwhile set.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon. And * - mine seems to have been painted incorrectly, with the black eyes off the marks. If you have a chance, look at the eyes before you buy yours.
