This G8-R3 action figure was released in
2012 in the Discover The Force toy line.
It was exclusively available at Walmart.
Hasbro gave the figure five joints and included
one accessory (power harness).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Droid:
- G8-R3 fits well onto the Power Harness
- The dome can be pulled-off, which then reveals some details inside
- The dome can be rotated, but there is no clicking sound, and rotating doesn't trigger any functionality
- The antenna on the dome is not removable
- The middle leg can be removed
- All three feet have rolls in them
- There was an accessory variation, the first power harness came with unpainted details on both sides, the second and corrected release had both sides painted (comparison picture: G8-R3)
The articulation details are as follows: swivel dome, 2 swivel legs, 2 swivel ankles
