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

Yeah, he comes with all the bells and whistles and is one of the best R2-D2 toys that Hasbro or Kenner have ever made, but that isn't the correct size. It might not be off by all that much, but it doesn't look quite right.

If it were just a couple of random people saying so I might be inclined to dismiss their opinions as off-kilter perceptions because of the way the photos were taken, the angles, the lighting and so forth, but when you see the 6" Luke and Artoo side by side in OdoWan's photos and then you look at Mark Hamill and the Artoo shell/Kenny Baker costume side by side on the actual film sets there's an apparent scale difference.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
