No, in the grand scheme of things it isn't, but it is annoying since I looked for it and submitted and answer and we haven't at least hear the correct one yet.

I have not yet heard anyone discuss where they believe they have seen R2 yet.

For what it's worth, I am fairly certain that I know where he was placed.

On my third viewing, I deliberately searched the background for him, because I was familiar enough with the story to not need to focus on the foreground. I spotted him near the end of the film, in the scene where young Spock meets Spock Prime. Near the end of their conversation, with about 10 seconds left, there is a camera angle of Spock Prime where a shuttle can be seen in the background. R2D2 is standing to the right (our right) of the shuttle. I made out his dome, legs, and his repair tool/welder conducting some repairs to the side of the shuttle.

Guess we'll see. My friend who was with me thought I was a big nerd.

Better luck next time, NCC. 5 times for me and no R2. But I haven't been looking for him. I did see the FC Vulcan ship on the Narada after you (or whoever it was) mentioned it was there. In any case all will be revealed when we get the disk.

I can see how that would be darn annoying. It shouldn't take that long, but my guess is they are waiting for the movie to run a few more weeks and for more entries to be had before making an annoucement. Were there any prizes involved, you know... if you got it correct you are entered into a drawing or something?

Annoying indeed!

So, now there are two sightings:

1. In the Federation ship debris above Vulcan, at some point during the Enterprise making a barrel roll.

2. In the steam behind and to the (screen) right of Spock Prime before his departure in the final minutes of the film.

So, which is it for chrissakes?

I never did find it in that scene.

I did see what looked like Artoo's dome, but the steam moved so fast and it covered it up.

Also, there is the claims that:

He is actually the rear dome at the end of the Enterprise saucer (unlikely they'd make him so prominent and he'd be like 10 times too big).

He's on a forklift that passes behind Kirk and McCoy before they depart for the Enterprise (it obviously looked like just a weird reflection to me).

He is in the transporter room when Spock and Sarek talk behind some glass on one side (I didn't see anything and it looks like the same lights all over).

Someone claimed he was on hull of the Enterprise in the last shot of the movie (I didn't see it in the place describe).

And the only credible sounding one which I haven't had the chance to check out was when the camera first pans along the Kelvin at the start of the movie, a set of windows goes by and you briefly see R2 in the window before the camera continues to pan.

I was the one who made the debris barrel roll spotting, but its obviously difficult to point out the exact debris at the exact moment without a good version of the movie available and a screenshot.
