    Thumbs up Bueno!

    Very nice. Did anyone notice that the new yellow astronomech droid doesn't seem to have the same silver dome? It almost looks transparent.

    I believe the droid was meant to have the transparent dome from what I've seen and heard

    Exactly, thats why it's designated an R3 unit. They all have clear domes, they also have appeared a few times in the original trilogy. There is an R3 unit on the first death star in the background while Obi-Wan is sneaking thru the corridors. Another R3 unit appears in the rebel base on hoth. Astromechs so far are designated by 5 series. R1 (The big black droid in the Jawa sale in ANH), R2 (R2-D2 etc. ), R3 (Transparent domed astromechs), R4 (Conelike domes - R4-M9), R5 (Flat topped - R5-D4).

    Actually there are more. R6 units were developed after Endor, and were a more efficiant remake of the R2 units. R7 units were made for the e-wingg fighters, and luke had r7-t1 while flying an e-wing.

    This is a great-looking feature! I've been asking Hasbro to do this for a long time, and here it is. Killer!

    Oh, I forgot that little detail about the R3 thing... Maybe I should have paid more attention to my Essential Guide to Droids book......

    For some reason, anything mechanical or electrical with a clear or translucent casing scares the crap out of me. Why would anyone put something inside a clear shell? Why do you care what goes on inside the casing. If you're that curious, go read "The Way Things Work." I had this playstation controller that had a translucent green case, and I could see the things moving around inside, then it broke for some reason unknown. When I opened it up to fix it, I found a substance that I think was strawberry jelly inside.... nevermind.

    Yeah, definately another cool droid, even though I'm not a droid fan, I'll pick this guy up.
