    Re: I think I've found R2...

    Looking at the link in the other thread, it looks that way:

    Nero hogged all the Screen and Cinema Scenes at Target and Wal*Mart. Kept the rest of us from scoring the Imperial and Clone troop builders.:scream:

    Is this a for real contest? I can't believe no one has found R2D2

    R2-D2 Found? (Spoilers inside)

    Saw this post, I can't verify this, because well, I have no time this week to go see the movie again.

    You know, I almost thought I saw something that looked like R2 in the background when I saw this. I'd have to watch it again though to make sure :)

    It's way too blurry to tell for sure. If that's him, it hardly counts. Then again by that reasoning, half the movie shouldn't count.

    I just prefer to think of the movie as having been shot in "GlaucomaVision."

    We need screen shots. Hopefully once they give away the prize, they will show us!

    Here is the best one I could get of the Scotty/alien "pea" moment described above.

    There is definitely some sort of cylindrical blur behind him, with the flat screen, but honestly I can't tell... Hmmm... tonight is the last IMAX night...

    The R2-D2 Contest

    What site is hosting it? I think I know where R2 is.

    Thanks

    Re: The R2-D2 Contest

    Thanks. I don't think R2 is in a particular scene, but more of part of a particular something in the film. It's hard to spot.

    I thought I found him on the hull of the Enterprise. It's almost uncanny... you can see what looks like R2's head popping out, like how he was situated with Luke Skywalker in that ship he was in on Star Wars (as you can tell i don't know much about Star Wars). I don't have a pic to show but if you watch Trailer 3 on youtube (1:28). That's where I think he is...

    No, on the outside of the ship... if you watch between 1:27-1:29 in full-screen mode you can see what I'm talking about. It's kind of up-side down, but it looks like R2's head popping out...

    That photo is so inconclusive and blurry in spots you can barely tell that's Simon Pegg.:p

    Miss Piggy and Darth Vader were SPFX easter eggs planted in ST:TMP.

    Re: Where's R2-D2?

    Right here, just like she said. Smack-dab in the middle. You can see his form, one of his side legs and his middle one. Most of all, you can definitely see his main eye:

    He's not the right white and blue color, but it's him.
