He seems a bit small to me. Oh and I guess the rumored Jawa pack in was just a rumor. R2's Tray should have came with clear Glasses or with some color and it looks too small.

Nope, I checked ANH after seeing the pictures. He's just a bit taller then C-3PO. So he looks to be about the right height to me. And apperantly yeah, the Jawa pack-in turned out to be incorrect. :)

Cool, I'm happy to hear that. Where did the Jawa rumor come from? Was it GH's Swami?

Here's a good picture for scale. No C-3PO, but we have Owen and some Jawas. R1-G4 is just a bit taller then Owen Lars, so the figure looks to be pretty accurate if you ask me. :)

The Jawa rumor actually comes from KebCo. They had Jawa w/RiG4 listed in their pre-order list. So a lot of folks put 2 and 2 together. That the R1-G4 would come with a jawa, myself included. Sadly, twas not the case. :)

This is one droid I hope isn't as hard to find as the damn Ephant Mon was in my area. I've been waiting for an R1 to be made for a long time!

Sad to hear we wont get another Jawa, but now i want the little green domed droid in the photo. How did Uncle Owen pass on that guy?

Don't know how big he or she's supposed to be but he/she looks awesome, same with Luke and R2, I'll be buying all three of these with the exception of R2 and R1, might pick up two of them each.

I thought that was the sandcrawler crane lowering him down.

As for the drink tray on R2-D2 Turbie, I'm not going to complain. The tray looks pretty accurate. And while clear cups on the tray area would have been nice, it's better then not having the figure come out at all. Finally, another 12" figure that was never made in the 3 3/4" line has been released. :)

I must say R1 looks fantastic, he might end up being next years FX-7. The detail on this guy is remarkable.

Yeah R1 is attached to a winch by electromagnetic hook up. That thing molded onto his head is innaccurate. His head is a dome without the 'thing' hasbroken have sculpted onto it. Owen Lars would be as tall as the yelow strip round R1's head judging by how far forward he is in the pic JJB provided. C-3PO is a tad smaller than Owen. Or should be.

R2's tray looks crappy to me because it's made of bendy cheapo plastic by the looks of it. If it had been made from rigid plastic it probably would have looked fine but no they went and cheaped out yet again so it's all bendy and will likely be warped in the blister like most of the accessories these days.

Well, the antenna appears to be a seperate peice anyway. If so, it should be easily removed for those of you that perfer the figure without it. :)

Well you could always borrow some glasses from the Cantina Sets or the "Deathsticks selling guy" and put them on R2's tray.

BTW when exactly is this wave supposed to start shipping/arriving at stores? I can't wait for the Jedi Luke.

Well for the most part I like what Hasbro has done. I do a agree with EJ about the use of crappy plastic for the bar set. I mean did you see the thing on R2? It's bent over. The Painted glasses look like crap. The reason I'm so POed about this one, is because Hasbro didn't have to come up with a new R2. All they had to do was make an easy attachment. Couldn't have taken too much time and $$$. I was holding off on doing a custom of this and now I have a good reason to start.
