The new 2012 packaging is really starting to hit retail as I found this little gem at Toy's "R" Us recently. This is the Star Wars Movie Heroes R2-D2 figure. Press R2-D2's chest to hear him chatter and talk. This figure also comes with a display base, as well as a Galactic Battle Game card and die. R2-D2 needs two LR44 batteries to work, which are included.

Posted by Dustin on October 15, 2011 |

Hasbro revealed several new products for 2012 at NYCC. Here is a first glimpse of R2-D2 from the Movie Heroes line. Scheduled for early release in January of 2012, this line replaces the Saga Legends line I believe. Also one more quick bit. I have confirmed that both new R2-D2's for 2012 ( this and the 4 pack ) are new R2-D2's. No re-packs or re-hashes. Photo courtesy of Rebelscum.com, check them out for more great NYCC coverage!

Here's a nice Episode I book display piece I picked up at The Earth a while back. It's made of pretty think cardboard and has an image of R2-D2 on each side. The books go in the middle part there ;-)

Episode I Eraser Set
Posted by Dustin on December 26, 2004 |

Can't really recall where I picked up this item but I think it was in a "free" box at a local OSWCC meeting. It's your basic eraser set. Pretty lame but still cool because it's one of those things not everyone went for when the Episode I marketing blitz hit in 1999.

Episode I Filmstrip
Posted by Dustin on October 1, 2004 |

Before Lucasfilm fully embraced the concept that people actually wanted his films on DVD, they were released on VHS (Video Home System). To entice collectors and fanatics even more into buying the "deluxe" version they would sometimes include a pack in or added bonus. The above filmstrip is a perfect example of one of these gimmicks. Included in the Episode I deluxe VHS boxset were actual pieces of the film itself. This one happens to feature R2-D2. I found this on eBay for about one dollar. Enjoy!
