    I don't like it. I think it looks clunky and short on detail. And his dome just reminds me of the top of the Chrysler Building in New York.

    It's incredibly similar to the last one, just with a couple of extra features.

    Looks pretty damn similar to 10225 R2-D2. Not sure what else they could do to improve the dome.

    The new R2-D2 looks better than the previous one IMHO. The old one is too blocky, this one looks a lot smoother. Still not completely sold on the shape of the dome though.

    Bit harsh. I think they all look pretty decent.

    For me I want it to look somewhat like Lego but also like the real thing. If I wanted an actual replica of a helmet or R2-D2.. then I'd buy a replica.

    Everyone is so quick to shit on everything atm.

    I am one of the most positive people around when it comes to Lego and fun things like that. I don't mind anyone else enjoying them - fill yer boots!
    I should have added IMO or similar after such an incendiary statement!

    Its a fine balance between looking like Lego and looking like the object. For me, the helmets just don't get there. They are worse than when a vehicle or similar doesn't manage it because they are so round and shiny.

    I love the new probe droid for example - that nails it. No more shitting on Lego for me.

    Very tempted by R2-D2 but Iíve only just bought myself the Space Shuttle set and I fear my wife would actually disown me if I dropped another £180 on Lego.

    Itís definitely on the wish list though.

    Missed a trick, should have been May 4th.
    Yea that's a bit dumb/weird there's a tab at the top of the page which actually says MAY THE 4TH but then you click on it and the dates are all the 1st!

    I think it looks brilliant in action. Still images doesn't do it justice. The way the leg pops out is brilliant

    The original is very much the same in that regard (looks better in the brick than photos).

    Isn't that so people can have it for the 4th?
