Proving that they are willing to address their mistakes (from time to time) Hasbro corrected the “First Issue” error on the back of the VC25 R2-D2 card.

Click the image above for a look at the side by side comparison and see if you can spot them all.

Our friends at Sandtroopers.com has posted a first look at carded and loose shots for the upcomimg Mailaway Prototype Boba Fett! Looks like Hasbro got the beach towel graphic worked in but missed the grappling rocket for the jetpack. Oh well. Blast on over for a closer look!
PROS: After 7 years, this is a great second attempt at the “BAR2-D2” figure. The drink tray is far superior to the previous version in terms of sculpt and the ability to remove the individual glasses. Loaded with accessories and features to re-enact other scenes from the Original Trilogy.
CONS: Little pieces can be easy to loose if not careful. Dome rotation is limited when lightsaber or periscope accessories are in use. Smaller scale seems unnecessary at this stage of the hobby.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
