This R2-D2 action figure was released in
1997 in the Power Of The Force 2 Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure four joints and included
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Droid:
- This R2-D2 figure was packed-in together with Princess Leia
- The figure is a straight re-release of the single carded R2-D2 figure
- R2's dome can be turned, but it has no functionality, and there is no clicking sound
- There is a small lever on the back of the droid which lets you manually move the middle leg into the body
- The dome has a clear plastic piece in it, which when light shines on it lights up R2-D2's "front eye"
- There are no wheels in the feet
- The cables on the front of both feet are painted on instead of being actual "cables" as seen on more modern astromech droids
- The middle leg can be manually moved into the dome, enabling the figure to stand on two legs
The articulation details are as follows: swivel dome, 3 swivel legs (middle leg can only be moved a little bit)
