The gold is almost certianly a result of ageing, more the lacquer than the chrome it's self I think, I have a R2 sensorscope with a goldish dome, I also have a DS Droid that is fully gold, more so than C-3PO, there is a pic of itin one of my posts somewhere. It's not a variant, but it sure looks cool!

As to the original question, not really sure, but I've heard a few references to TAIWAN coo's being from some of the earliest versions. Only R2, Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, Vader & Boba have Taiwan COO's from the Star Wars set, four of which of course where in the early bird set. Wether or not early bird R2's had Taiwan COO's exclusively I would have no idea, never had the opportunity to look at one.

Yeah, you can find Taiwan Artoos on some 12backs (Graham - Black_Falcon has one) so certainly an early variant. I don't think there are any Taiwan baggied R2's though?

& I've never really kept a record of where the light & dark blue HK R2 figures can be found, both seem to appear on/in lots of different cards/baggies...

Dont want to hijack this tread but THE Taiwan r2 gets mentiond à couple of times as à possible EB r2.
Is this possible because im trying to make an EB set but i cant quite spot à darker blue r2 but i own à Taiwan one.

I think Early Bird Sets only came with "Made In Hong Kong" baggies with the exception of Chewbacca who can be found in a no text baggie* so that would mean no Taiwan R2's in such sets?

Rog.


* To confuse things though, I've heard rumours of a Taiwan Leia in a no text baggie coming with the EB set.

Thanks Rog and thanks DLT9.

Know I know that R2-D2 Taiwan was on the Kenner card.

I don't have a earlybird set yet so I don't know about Hong Kong or Taiwan.

Im not sure, but I think any Taiwans were non domestic US releases there are no early US Kenner MADE in Taiwan card backs - to my knowledge and guessing they were baggie / set inserts. ?? or Intnl figures. figures

I am curious about the Dented dome on top of R2s . my self. I have a few one of of 60 maybe i find have the dented top on the dome. HK fig.

But I received a link from Rog about a R2-D2 on a 12C card from Taiwan is that not an early US Kenner ?

So maybe the Taiwan version could be from the Early Bird set ? Shocked



The Early Bird R2 came in a "Made in Hong Kong" baggie. I can check the COO another time for you when I am back home.

Its dome is deeper blue than a regular R2.

Hi Marco I only spam because I miss you and love your work bounce

I also hope that you will some day be game for a super guide, I know that Kahn and I am and I also think Scott is ready for such a task, he has been talking about he is missing a big guide for variants.

Thanks Jason, Very cool a new R2-D2 coo variant, good work Very Happy

About the pictures of the early bird r2 and the other there is also a difference on the center of the sticker that vent like thing is more square on the early bird, at least what I can see.

I have given up on R2 since I have bought many that have looked really good on picture and described as perfect but when arrived they look yeah like the ones on this picture.

Unfortunately I do no longer have an r2d2 with round shape, and had to compare with one of my popups.

I also got this super ultra rare dagobah palitoy release. Which was made to match the battle damaged x-wing in esb.
