I know I have asked this before, but then we were told that he was coming in the Star Tours line. Now I have heard rumblings that the R5 from the ST line will have the funny looking photo receptors like the one seen in the Star Tours ride.
I mean R5 had time in both ANH and AOTC( albiet very briefly) and we have received one older figure that split in two. I know of characters with a lot smaller screen time that have had mutiple figures.
It would be so easy for Hasbro to do. Just use the R3 body and give us a new head sculpt. I made one( check under customizing forum), but had to use the POTF2 one and it is just
not right. While they are at it they could give us an R6 by using that body with another new head sculpt.
