Interesting. If accurate, I wonder if it's part of the regular line, or maybe a Deluxe figure? They've never released an astromech with a full-sized figure before on a standard card.

The McQuarrie concept R2-D2 is smaller than the final R2-D2 though.

still a great set to add to the Mcquarrie figures of the Stormie, Vader, Luke, and Chewie. I think it would be cool if they also do the Han and Leia as well as Yoda and the Emperor.

I'm glad we are getting these figures. They were definately at the top of the concept figure list I would want. Since we are rumored to get Vader and Chewie I think that it completes my list of ones I really want.

I wonder if C-3PO will be the one from that famous painting, where he looks more feminine? That would be cool.

Nice. I will be sure to pick this one up. I love the OT concept figures.

I never liked either of the concept designs for the droids. 3PO was too derivative and R2 just looked stupid. I'm curious to se how they'll translate to figures.

I think these will look great. :)

Me too, and I've coined a new phrase relating to the McQuarrie figures:
Alternate Universe.

Heck if we already have EU (Expanded Universe) then why not Alternate??

Makes sense as this is what COULD have been.

I for one hate the concept figures and will gladly pass on all of them this year.

well lets be honest, the concept art for the droids looks like Maria from Metropolis and B.O.B from Disney's Black Hole.

I'd have to agree with that!

I'm with you on that!!!

I don't know about the B.O.B. thing 'cos well, at that turn, The Black Hole came out in 1979-- so, they kinda would've had to steal the idea from Ralph. So, you could say that Old B.O.B. looks like proto-Artoo! LOL
