Well... just got handed this little "would be gem". Hasbro and their little band of monkeys certianly over-sprayed THIS little guy! I had to scratch off a bit of the over-sprayed paint and think I will need to paint on some of the areas that were under-sprayed (i.e. the green detailing on the legs).
The body is a little larger than my R2-B1's body. That may be because of the third leg. I haven't any other R2 units to campare it to, so I cannot be 100% certain on this. Speaking of the third leg, the inner tray is a mess so the third leg became twisted to the right during shipping. I am hoping that this will correct itself soon. The head sculpt, while generally pretty decent is a little sloppy around the radar eye. I'm not sure if it is the paint or if it is because there are little bits of plastic that didn't form very well. Again, we have the pretty standard "light pipe" feature on this guy. It's green. Big surprise, I'm sure. The legs are not the same legs as used on the R2/holo Leia figure. They appear to be the same as the ones (as far as I can recall) on the red astromech on the Royal Starship.
Overall, it's a nice figure. I like droids, so I'm gonna have to score it 8.75 out of 10. In comparison to previous astromech figures, it rates about a 6.5
I suppose we'll say: B+
