I know the figure was made, but what scene was this supposed to be from?

When Qui-Gon is telling Anakin about midi chlorians R2-D2 is looking over the edge of the platfor at the trafic. He looks too far over the edge and falls over it. He then uses the booster rockets to get himself back up on the platform.

By the way, that scene was included in the E1 novel, but I don't know if it was ever filmed for the movie. I don't think it would've been necessary to put it in, but might've been nice anyway.

The scene of R2 falling off the edge was filmed. It can bee seen on several areas of the DVD. There are also pictures of R2-D2 with his rockets out being lifted by a crane.

Did R2 fall because he looked too far over the edge or because he was shocked at the midichlorian explanation :D ? He's worked on these movies for 25 years, maybe he was startled by George's new theory. :eek:

It's on the DVD? I don't think I've seen it yet. (Unless it's a deleted scene I forgot about, etc.)

I didn't find that scene with R2 either
any explanations where to find it? is it an easter egg?

It is on the blooper reel. Anakin and Qui-Gon are talking and R2 falls off the edge. It is supposed the be the scene with him looking over too far, and I don't know why it made it to the blooper reel (maybe they hoped we didn't know about the scene and though it fell off on it's own).

I'm sure it can be seen somewhere else too but I can't remember where.

It can also be seen on the Lynne's Diary about R2-D2.

Found some pics. Here's a pic of R2 falling off the edge (from Lynne's Diary).

Ha ha ha, Pendo. You know that picture is just a shot from the "Tony Hawk/R2-D2 Skate Wars" video game! :p Artoo with the crazy McTwist on the rail!

I do seem to recall that scene in the DVD blooper scenes, but was there ever a background of Coruscant included? Or just the blue screen?

I'm not sure, I think it depends on when the scene was cut. If George decided to cut it before ILM got their hands on it then there won't be. I think if a Coruscant background WAS added then there would be pictures of it somewhere, but I've not come across them.

I kinda liked the rockets coming out from those panels... now I see they are in his leg panels for AOTC...

How about a little consistency?
