Well the good news is, we are getting and R5-D4, and the sculpt looks great.

The bad news is the the Evil Empire has decided to make this one of their "Star Tours" figures.

I don't consider the Star Tours line to be real Star Wars figures, but I may have to resort to buying this figure (at an over inflated price no doubt). :rolleyes:

Yeah! 10 bones which makes it hard for me to justify buying many for customizing/painting to have in dioramas!

But the droid isn't technically R5-D4 anyway, it's R5-DL. Note the binocular type eyes, instead of the three short eyes. Also note that R5-D4 has blue on his legs, and torso. And that his side panels are painted, where as R5-DL's are not. So it really doesn't matter. It's just like how they labeled the aquamarine R4 unit as R4-M9 in the Star Tours line and he really wasn't. But we'll still likely get an actual R5-D4 figure from Hasbro sooner or later. Especially since they molded a new R5 head. :)

I was excited at the prospect of getting a new R5-D4, but was dissapointed that it wasn't the one from the movie. hahahahahaha $10 for THAT?...right

Please put out the REAL R5-D4. You're not getting my cash until you do.

Yeah, that's right you guys don't buy this one and then i can buy them all up for my droid army and customise them. So do not buy the star tours r5 droid and force hasbro into making a new one that is coorect to the movie and allow me to grab a whole load of this other thing.
