Saw this at the mall today. This thing is sweet...has the lights, sounds, and it obeys voice commands. It also has the arm and the antenna that goes on top of R2.

Really neat! Too bad it would cost a fortune to have it sent to Romania:sad:

Looks like the Hasbro version that came out a few years ago.

Its the same one. It's been re-released about 3 times now. Its neat but nothing I'd spend a bunch of money on.

That is the Hasbro one, the manual on their page has the Hasbro logo and copyright stuff. No surprise then that this is overpriced with regard to the last release of this thing.

Wow, I remember a time when these were really marked down now the price is back up. Hasbro must have found some old stock in the back.....I think they are really cool, but not for $120 plus the batteries they'll run through

Hasbro re-released this in the ROTS line for a reduced price of $70 and kept that price when they switched to the TSC packaging, I think Sharper Image is just gouging like they always do.

I picked one of these up when they first came out. KB toys had them on sale for 25% off and I got toys r us to price match them. It's a great toy and it would have been worth $100, but I'm glad I only spent $75.

No kidding. We paid $50 on clearance from TRU. My kids were playing with it yesterday.
