A third R2 based off the original (charming to be sure, but hardly accurate) sculpt, this time with a permanent hole in his head and a movie-inaccurate lighted half-length saber growing out of it? I genuinely do wish Kenner had chosen to make a battle-damaged R2 instead, but wishing is pointless and this is what they gave us!

I repeat, I do like it these days (although hate the stupid money they're now fetching!), but I'll always wish it was something else. Anyway, here's mine; a loose and a POTF carded:
