Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It's not.

It's the 2006 Saga Collection R5-D4 that reused the VOTC Artoo body from '04. It still has the front panel that's been glued down so it can no longer be opened.

On the bright side, the Death Star Droid is the BAD mold and the Power/Gonk Droid is completely new from the feet up! There's speculation that this new mold will be reused and repainted blue later this year for a Vintage Collection Power Droid based on the original 1978 action figure. I hope so! People have been asking for a Vintage-carded Power Droid for a while now and it'd be great to see one in classic old school colors before the line goes on hiatus!
