Compare this R2-D2 figure
This R2-D2 action figure is based on the scene where he delivers the holographic message from Princess Leia to Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. R2 has a permanent attached restraining bolt - his middle leg moves in and out of his body - and all three legs have swivel joints at the ankles. The astromech has a nice - dirty looking paint application on his lower body simulating the Tatooine sand. R2-D2's dome rotates (making the famous clicking sound) and it has a blue see-through plastic piece at the top - so when light shines on it it'll illuminate his "front eye" and his "projector" where the hologram came out of. The figure looks quite nice overall - it stands securely - and is among one of the better released R2-D2 action figures so far.
While repairing his new droid R2-D2 - young Luke Skywalker unwittingly short circuits its recording system - causing a holographic image of the young Princess Leia to appear. She implores the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi - and then disappears as quickly as she emerged.
