What pencil trick are peeps using for R2? Sorry I haven't been on the forums in a while so I have missed out on some things.
Umm, no offense, but how many ways can you possibly use a pencil? The "trick" should be pretty obvious I would think.

Id say the softer the better, as long as you get it in the grooves. Smudging is optional but be careful or itll end up like something that fell down the chimney on xmas eve.
Will do, thanks guys for the heads up on this. NEVER would have thought to use a pencil.

It would certainly have helped Hasbro sell more copies of R2D2 :/ why they didnt do it when it was in the prototype is completely beyond me.
I doubt the lack of No.2 Dixon markings on the BS6 R2 figures are drastically hurting sales.

I successfully tried the pencil upgrade on artoo. Then, minor customization on my sandtroopers. One is the normal one out of the box, the other is the same as the first one but without the pouch/ammunition thing on his shoulder, and the other is without pauldron or equipment, as he appears in the ANH hangar scene. I decided not to paint any pauldrons black or white. Ill just wait for those variants to come out, hopefully with different accessories.
I did the same thing. Here is a quick shot of them

Dang the non edit button!!! Sorry meant to but this.



Has any one thought of doing or has done any of these custom for the BS6 R2 yet? I'm really debating on going and buying up some of the R2's that's setting around town clogging up shelf space and trying to make a few of these guy's. Starting with R2-X2, R4-P17, and R2-B1 With that being said I have a few worries on loading up on 8 or 9 of these to customize. Do i need to take these a part to repaint them? And if so has any on tried it yet? What type of paint would be best on this type of plastic so they wont flake or chip? Also what type of a brush would be best on these? And one of the biggest issues would be getting the wright paint matched up. If any one could help I would appreciate it a lot

I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I have picked up quite a few for repaints. I can tell you from experience making custom 3.75" astromechs that it's not easy. You'll need to practice quite a bit before you get something that's on par with Hasbro's quality.

As for paints, I always used the cheapo acrylic (DO NOT USE ENAMEL) paints from the craft section at Walmart. I don't think they carry the same brand anymore, but it used to be Folk Art at about $1 a bottle. I'd get the cheap brushes as well, from the same aisle. You'd definitely want to seal it afterwards. I used Testors dullcote that I had to order from their website. I never had a problem with chipping, except for paint rub from the ball joints, which isn't going to be a problem here.

No need to take them apart IMO, but if you feel the need, you can use the same technique that I used to use on the smaller guys. Go to the bathroom or some other smaller room. Take the figure and repeatedly throw it on the ground until the dome opens up. You'll want to be in a small room to make finding the small parts inside a lot easier as they tend to fly all over the place. Maybe not the best method, but it did work for me and never damaged the figure in the process. I don't know how that would work with these, so try at your own risk. I suppose you could try using an xacto knife to cut around the seam, but you'll probably end up either cutting your finger or making a new seam.
