I was at my locat TRU today and I saw in the Star Wars section... a General Grievous action figure! There was also an R2 unit, a wookiee, and that guy whose face looks like corduroy.

Has anyone else seen these? Or is this old news that I somehow missed?

Yep I've seen them at TRU and Target as well. I think those came out last Tuesday, if memory serves.

Yeah, they came out in the last week or two. Wyatt saw them and was totally pumped about the R2 unit, and got it right away. He got the Wookie Warrior for Valentine's day today from my Mom.

Yes, specifically an R2 unit. You know, there are different models, R2, R3, R4. Like R2-B1, R5-D4, R4-P17.

EDIT: MY BAD!!! It's R4-G9. So he's an R4. Oopsidaisy.

Mine too- sorry. I did not look at it when he had the packaging. It just looks like an orangish R2 unit to me. I figured he was R2-something something

if you don't like spoilers, don't read this part.

this new R4 is Obi Wan's new droid, he fits into the new JSF and accompanies OB1 on a mission.
Hyperspace members got to vote on his colors, they went with a copper/bronze scheme over techno green, purple, and somehing else. Also, you may note that the R4 units don't usualy come with dome type heads, but rather hexagonal looking buckets. GL just doesn't care for his own continuity Rolling Eyes

Well, Obi-wan's R4-P17 head was domed.

Edit: and that accounts for the R4s we know about.

yeah, another instance of GL not caring and telling his prop department to do it anyways and just make up a story so he could have the dome

Which R4 are you thinking of, Don? I haven't seen any (that I recall) that were hexagonally-headed.

Now the real question is... are R4 lampshade units even canon? Wink

Habro is getting some good mileage outta that Artoo mold. How many Artoo's can they make and get away with it? Too many, I think.

I do like the R4 droids.
