LEGO Star Wars 40268 R3-M2 found

Another new polybag has been found, this time 40268 R3-M2 from the LEGO Star Wars theme. This new astromech droid has not been realised a minifigure, or whatever a LEGO astromech should be called, before.

Brickset report that the polybag was found in a LEGO monobrand store in Romania. What is interesting about this release is that a little brick-built base is included with a nameplate and what looks to be a card backdrop. Will this be how LEGO Star Wars minifigure polybags are presented from now on? A Technic pin on the side of the base suggests it is intended to be added to.
