    Yep, old news. But according to Rebelscum and other websites, they won't be showing up until likely December. Especially since September has been over a few months. By the way, the R5-D4 may not actually be R5-D4. The R5 unit from the Star Tours ride is actually R5-DL.

    Thanks JarJarBinks.
    Just hope they will use the mold to make the announced SAGA-ANH R5-D4...

    Man, where's the freakin' pictures of these things already!? I've been sweating over this R5-D4 for what seems like months. I'm terrified they'll try to re-use the POTF R5 retooled but srtil with that dumb azz masive heeead. I just have these visions of being in a yoystore and not finding anything other than aisle aftyer enldless aisle of POTF R5-D4 repackaged. No other toys of any description just the dumb crappy resculpt.

    I just need to see the pics so i know it's a new figure, same cool R2 body they've been using a while now but with a new head that's the right scale and has the right details. I don't care if it's got the two eyes and they call it R5-D4 or whether they get the three eyes right, i just want an accurate R5 droid. And i want to know what the other two look like two, what the hell is SK-Z38 and will G2-9T look similar to G2-4T? what the hell are hasbro trying to do hold out on the pictures until all the toys have sold out? SHOW ME THE PICTURES ALREADY!!! I should stop drinking coffee now.................

    No fear of a POTF2 re-hash figure !
    They said months ago (at the last ToyFair if I remember well) they (Hasbro) plans to make a new R5-D4 with a new mold. The same time, they anounced they surely will make a "rebody" of the Cloud Car to be a store exclusive (POTJ). Today we are almost sure the Cloud Car will finaly see the light spring 2003. Then it seems logical to expect the ANH R5-D4 soon.
    I also remember they answered my questions about the delayed figures (on the Rebelsum Q&A to Hasbro managers) : "we were these past few weeks focused on the AOTC toys then we haven't much time to do other things).
    They also talked about the Sandcrawler (10 months ago) and about a new Tie Fighter with big wings...

    heheh coffee rush always gets me hyped up. If i remember that Q&A session hasbro said they wanted to try and get a tie fighter out with new wings. I know it's been rumored for 2003 but quite honestly i think you could just randomly pick characters for release in the future and post it and everyone would take it as gospel. I actualy tried that as an experiment once. posted a list of rumored figures and slipped one in that I just thought soundded nice. Then i went to a few sites and saw the same thing listed as fact somewhere. Just shows how people put too much faith in the internet. Anyway, I hope the R5 is all new, I hope it actually gets a december release and doesn't get pushed back like a lot of stuff recently. If it gets a december release I might have a chance of finding one online in january. I plan on getting five R5 droids, one to keep as is and four for customing. One imperial, two rebel, one Mos Eisley, and one sale of the droids true. The rebel ones would be the white one with the black head and there's a white one with maroon markings in the rebel briefing scene of ROTJ that I fancy doing. The Mos Eisley one would be the orange yellow one. But then I could get more and do the one from the Naboo royal starship, The mauve one from Coruscant in AOTC, Then there's more rebel astro droids from ANH, a red and black one and I think there's a dark green one. Proportionatly i have more astro droids now than any other type of figure, I'm well on my way to having a total droid army. The droids will rule I'm tellin' ya!

    Doesn't alter the fact that there's stil no pics of the figgies though.

    I'm a bit concerned that the year's almost up and we haven't even seen pics of these guys yet. I haven't seen any sales figures, and I doubt anyone else has either, but I'm fairly certain the Star Tours line sold very well. Hopefully, the last 3 will actually be made, but they've seem to completely fallen off the map in the past month or so.

    This Auction says they'll be released December 1st. I don't believe everything I read on E-bay, but at least it gives us some hope.

    Eh, for someone without a pic of the actual figures. I'd surely take the date listed in that auction with a salt lick - not just a grain.

    If or when they produce the cloud car...will they have the foresight to give us two pilots or will we have to wait a few years to get a carded second figure?
