Now that was a tough pick.. Artoo is such a classic and iconic figure, but you can pull Threepio apart just like in the film!!!

If it had been the sensorscope R2 I would have went with him, but it wasn't so I'll stick with the one I had as a kid.
Battle-damage stickers should be peelable!

Ted Rogers reading the chosen 'clue' to the winning contestants:

I have glass windows and stand on 4 wheels,
You can get inside me and go places, one feels,
If you want to visit a friend or go to the shops,
Just turn my key and off you shall pop!

What am I? Well, what has a key you can turn, glass windows, 4 wheels, is something you can get inside of and go places, including visiting friends, shops or the rubbish dump? That's right, a dustcart. You've won Dusty Bin!

:lol:

C'mon guys it's 3PO all day long. Brilliant sculpt and a lovely gold paint job by whoever designed him back in the day and looks like the screen seen 3PO. Can we really say the same thing with R2 figure?? Lazy effort by whoever designed R2, i mean his head and particularly blue eye looks nothing like what we see on screen. And they come up with a sticker for his body?! IMHO one of the weaker figures.

Hours spent trying to work out the clues (well it seemed like hours! :roll:
I rewatched one of the shows last year, another show best left in your memories!
But then it was compulsory viewing, different times! :lol:

49-17 is a massive victory as R2 romps home against Threepio Removeable Limbs, with r2 Sensorscope competing in the next set of games it could be a great round for the Astromech
