Thread: Dagobagh R2-D2

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Dagobagh R2-D2

    We need the R2-D2 covered with mud, just like he appeared in Dagobagh after the swamp creature swallowed him!!

    While we are at it, give us the Sail Barge R2-D2 or at least an accessory that suit his helmet.

    These two will sell more than any EPII R2 figure.
    As always...........L

    or you could just buy up a bunch of R2s from goodwills and paint them yourself, saving the rest of us a bunch of useless resculpts.

    Either way you will end up buying the figure, so if its worth it, why not buy the resculpt?

    there are uses for Hasbro usesless selling points. Take one R2, spray dirt and gunge colours over it, add a push panel at the back and a removable dome, add brown glob like the Jabba glob stuff. fill R2 with glob and place dome in position. Push the panel at the back and watch as brown glob spits from R" just like in the movie!
    Okay so I'm not exactly doing a good job of selling this idea but I reckon this is on a par with Sail Barge R2 whenit comes to resculpt probability and saleability. I'd only buy a dagobah R2 if it had the mud spitting action.

    A Dagobah R2 would be an interesting addition to the collection, IF DONE RIGHT! We don't just need another overpainted R2. He should come with accessories appropriate to this incarnation. Someone had once suggested a power generator, I wholeheartedly agree. Throw in some other gear or perhaps Luke's "lunchbox" for Yoda to critisize and you will have a winner. A great thing for the little power generator would be to build it with a translucent red interior piece that is seen through the vents of a hollow exterior piece, perhaps utilizing the "light pipe" that has been used in R2 and Jawas.

    I also agree that a Jabba's Sail Barge R2 is LONG OVERDUE! This should have been the POTJ R2, not that useless EI R2 that came out recently. If you want to do a new version of an existing figure, make sure there is a compelling reason to do so (improved scult at the very LEAST), not just an excuse to get a core character out there.
