I wish that I could help you Lars, but I don’t own one of these.
I’m not sure why as I think R2 and C3PO are great.
I think that it maybe the price that these two fetch now! :shock:
Looking forward to seeing what everyone has.

No problem, I have one that I can add, but it is more fun if others also can add pictures :D

I bought mine many years ago, 15 years ago I think, so I do not know the price today :?

I also think R2 and c3po is great 8)

Very nice Lars, not many collectors will have one in that condition.

That's in lovely condition, Lars. As you know, I don't collect Droids figures, so I can't help you with this thread, but I do hope some other forum members can add photos of their R2's :-)

Here's my Driods R2 moc. This was the second one I bought as I had an AFA 85 one originally to go along with my 85 Droids C-3PO but this one came up which was in the same condition but had a less yellowed bubble. I had a spare AFA case that I'd cracked open to put this one in so that the cases would match with the C-3PO and the grade didn't worry me although I think this would still grade at 85.

As with most of these Droids R2/3PO's getting them with a clear bubble is very difficult and not something I normally have in my collection (although the Glasslite ones seem to fair better), but this was the best I could find at the time. I also have a loose one put away somewhere and I'll post it up if I can find it :lol:

Found my loose one :D

It's not mint and I display him with a regular pop up lightsaber as the one he came with was a little chewed and missing part of the handle. Still, for £50 he'll do!

Wow Ian, nice loose, sorry about the lightsaber :( but I am glad to read you replaced it with potf lightsaber :wink:

I was worried many years ago about my lightsaber was repro :( but after some help on tig many years ago It was confirmed it is original. But I still think mine looks different than the broken one you have :?
