    This is good news, the photos sent me looking through my Star Tours photos. I don't have one of SK-Z38 , is he from Disney Land or Disney-MGM? Any one know?

    As for the figures, they all will be welcome additions to my collection.

    I don't think I've been this disappointed in a long time. Animitronic bird skeletons and a movie inaccurate astromech...ugh. C'mon Hasbro give us a real R5.

    I knew R5-D4 was in the Sandcrawler, always figured the R5-DL droid was also in there because I thought I saw it in there. Eh, oh well he looks cool nonetheless. Just chop off or pull out those eye sockets then a little sculpey and you'd have a new R5-D4 ready to go!

    I don't know if I like the bird thing or not. It could be cool to use as a security sentry in the Geonosis Droid factory diorama.

    The R5 is way cool.

    The other, I'll pass on. Not significantly different from the first one.

    But considering how they recycle robotic animatronics from other sets and strip them off of their earth-worldly coverings and call them Star Wars droids,

    I can't wait for the Abraham Lincoln droid or the Abominable Snowman one, let alone Pirates of the Carribean.

    I even went so far as to name them:

    A.B.E.-1 Civil Worker Droid

    S.N.O.-8 Security Net Operations Droid

    and

    Captain P.E.G.-8 (Pilot-Engineer-Gunner- model 8)

    and of course

    J.A.K.-0 (Michael Jackson animatronic, at home in his Pirates of the Carribean recreation)

    The R5 droid is cool, but was he like that in the movie with that blast mark (as shown in JJB's link)? Or was he only like that in Disney? With that said, assuming this droid is the "all-new" R5-D4, will Hasbro re-release it as a basic carded figure later on (maybe without the blast mark), or will this droid be Star Tours exclusive forever? Disney is waaaaaaaay out of my reach, so chances are, I'll NEVER get it.

    Hasbro, you forgot a-boot us Canadians.

    I got my wave 1 at Disneyland, CA.

    I ordered my wave 2 from Disneyworld, FL.

    No problems.

    I think I have extra (definitely non-mint) from Wave 1 and 2.

    The cool thing about them making R5-DL, is that they can always remold/repaint it later on down the line to make the unknown black 2-eyed Imperial R5 Unit from the Death Star 2. Or the unknown white 2-eyed Rebel R5 Unit from the Rebel Briefing Room. Or if your handy with that sort of thing, you can do it yourself.

    We all need to understand that these are Star Tours figures, not from the movies. R5 looks awsome as this is how he looks like at the attraction. I'm hoping Hasbro will release another R5 droid that will be a Star Wars figure.

    Oof! The R5 looks very nice ... I've missed out on all of these figures and I'm within spitting distance of Mouse-Land. Will have to go get one this time.

    (I like the Animatronic bird skeletons ... toys of "real" robots ... what a cool thing. I always thought it was funny that they used those for the ride ... sort of fantasy meets reality.)

    I believe most of us realize this, but we just like to complain. If it looked like the movie version we probably would be saying, "Hey, it doesn't look like the STAR TOURS version.
