As per the title, does anyone have any further news or release date for the Stern Star Wars Topper?

Desperate to complete my LE.

I keep hearing it is close and I thought with the release of the Comic Art Version is was imminent!

And the wait continues......…….

I assume for the price it spins, bleeps and projects a Princess Leia hologram?
From a post on Pinside R2D2 bounces up and down bleeps and there’s LED lighting built into the base to lit R2 up. No mention of a projecting feature which honestly seemed like a no brainer!

Buy an R2D2 toy and mod it.....

Or better still. Wait until someone takes one apart to find out they used a ready made toy and just modified it in the factory. Like they’ve done for years.

They will still sell out.

What does it do?

Could you video please?
Not a huge amount, it lights up, spins around and makes R2D2 noises. It interacts with the game a bit, but probably needs a code update.

It probably not for everyone, but if you are a Star Wars owner / fan, it’s worth it in my opinion.

Here is a little video I took last night. I will get a longer one today.

Well it was kinda rushed out 🤣*

shoild have taken another 18 month or whatever to code it properly 😇





*I realise there is no point working on the code until it’s confirmed as approved etc
Not holding my breath!
