Hot Toys have released a large (over 30 images) gallery full of final product images from the new R2-D2 1/6 Scale Figure due to start shipping in November!
Many people are day one pre-order types who watch Hot Toys like hawks, jump on every announcement, and are placing their deposit with Sideshow the day pre-orders go live. Other Hot Toys collectors plan, wait, and consider. The day final product images are released by Hot Toys is the real decision-making day in the mind of that latter set of collectors.
As Hot Toys makes abundantly clear in their disclaimers, things can change between the solicit prototype photos and the production model. This is the day we see what fell by the wayside and what managed to make it into production. What headsculpt changes, costume changes, and accessory changes (if any) were made.
R2 is still available to pre-order from Sideshow:
