R2D2 Sensorscope Head Alignment...

Postby tigerham » Wed Aug 21, 2019 7:51 am

Hi all,

I noticed a while ago after seeing photos of my old R2D2 Sensorscope that the head wasn't aligned. Then today noticed that some are and some aren't. I am wondering if there is head swapping going on or this is just a factory error?!

The thing is that the one below was taken from an open baggie (apparently) but is mint so never questioned it.

Has anyone else noticed this about the R2D2 Sensorscope figure?

I only have one R2D2 Sensorscope MOC to compare it to at the moment so know that one is genuine and that one's head is aligned.

What do you mean by aligned?? The head moves round anyway so who’s to say what it’s default/as new position is?

The head being centrally aligned to the body because in the top photos you can see the head over hangs the body on one side and on the bottom the head is aligned perfectly and there is no over hanging on one side.

Does this make sense?

Meaning this... (Overhanging not Overhamning)
