Cool Star Wars polybag found

Posted by ,

This polybag (40268) containing droid unit R3-M2 has been found in a Romanian monobrand store and is free there with purchases of Star Wars sets.

Hopefully it will become more widespread later in the year, perhaps as part of the traditional May 4th promotion.

Thanks to mitzza87 for posting it in the forum.

And it looks like an excellent way to display /connect minifigures without them falling over.

Looks like there will be more than just this one!

That stand looks great!! As does the droid.

So I guess he's from Rogue one (after doing a quick search). Nice little fig. Shame it uses a sticker for the name.

The stand has a technic pin in it so you could connect it to something else. Maybe that means more of these types of polybags coming?

I love the fact that these now include connecting pins.

Looks cool. I'll have to figure out how to get my hands on this.

I really dig this, especially w/that connectable base. Please make these avail. wordwide, and keep more coming! Btw if anyone in Romania wants to pick one up and trade me for an extra Mini Bat Wing please let me know :)

The little stand is quite cute, and I hope LEGO continues to do that with future single-figure polybags! It gives them so much more substance than just a figure by itself.

Why does the plastic used for the bag look different? Is this common in different parts of the world?
It almost looks like it's a small batch type of seal...

Let the eBay bidding frenzy commence... :-D

So there's both R3-M2 and R2-D2 polybags coming out?

Well if this comes out on may the fourth then that definitely justifies my leaving the y-wing for potential promotions

I agree with @jimmysbricks I think the connector pin might mean more of these polybags are on the way that can be displayed together

If this becomes a series, hopefully it's a sign of good things to come from LEGO for the 40th anniversary of Episode IV!

I really want that R2 polybag hoping it comes soon

Hasn't it occurred to anyone that maybe this is counterfeit? Wookiepedia doesn't mention any droid named R3-M2, it looks exactly like R2-D2, the stand has never been included before and the packaging uses a different kind of plastic to all other polybags.

^ Hmm, could be.

I agree with the packaging looking strange, but R3-M2 (along with C2-B5, R2-BHD, and R5-SK1) was all sold at Disney in a Droid Factory 4 pack that says they are featured in Rogue One. Also, I haven't seen a knock-off of this anywhere yet.

Clone brands tend to include display stands in their sets. Though if this is real it would be a good counterattack against them! I find that rows of Collectible Minifigure 3x4 modified plates do the job for my displays already

As a 501st member...I'd love to see an R2-KT minifig!

hopefully, this is a real set and we will be seeing them soon. I really like that stand. I would Like to see all the droids from rogue one. also as a tidbit this set might have a transparent head included because and I'm no expert but according to Wookieepedia most R3 Models had a transparent head http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/R3-series_astromech_droid/Legends What do you think? Would you like to see a couple of R3 droids with transparent heads?

Gravatar

Yep, more transparent domes please. And a chrome silver domed R2 ...and a pink R2 unit

Gravatar
By in United States,

That would be nice and yes, agreed completely chrome domes and a pink dome would be cool.
