    I wish I knew about this earlier today but I had to be at work. :/ I missed out on the Rodimus and the R2-KT. I really wanted those.
    I am sure you will be able to get a R2-KT.It is for a good cause so I am sure they will have enough.I got mine off of ebay from a scalper.

I know its not the same as getting a factory-produced figure, but those pens work really well for repaints if you don't feel like shelling out the big bucks for the Gold Destro on eBay (I have used a silver one to do a messed up Cobra Commander face plate as well as some custom Transformers alternators faces).
    You can also try a transparent candy gold spray paint. The advantage being that when a clear candy is lightly used on a polished metal surface (or in this case a vac-plated surface), the painted object retains a metallic shine. This will allow the head to still look like it was actually plated (now in gold) after a couple quick light coats. Keep in mind that the more coats of paint you add, the less you'll see of the surface being painted. Try and keep it very light yet thorough. Do a base coat, let it dry, then do a final coat and then step off. You can find transparent candy paint at hobby shops.

    Another option is brush electroplating, but now were getting ridiculous. Or are we? Hmmmmmmmm... You can find people doing this kind of work at swap meets and car shows. Since the head has already been vac-plated chrome, it can easily be "toned" gold the way they "plate" plastic auto emblems.

    I've paid so little attention to this figure prior to now that I didn't even know that vac-plating was involved.

    How about having a jeweler / jewelry maker custom cast you a 18k or 24k real Gold head – now that would be a sweet gold headed (literally) Destro

    I stopped collecting star wars back when episode I first came out, but for some reason I have this compulsion to get a R2-KT. It was created for a good cause. I think I like it because it would give me an excuse to put an action figure in my daughter's room.

    I really hoped they would do it for the 5 pack Desro, but alas...

    That reminds me, someone suggested swapping out the silver PDD's head and putting it on the 5 pack Destro body. Sounds like a plan!

    I didn't know hasbrotoyshop.com was a convention. That blows the whole idea of convention exclusives. Hasbro has to be one of the worst companys in my opinion for customer service.
