Obi-Wan Kenobi's astromech droid R4-P17 was released individually carded during The Clone Wars Collection in early November 2010. The astromech droid has been featured in various Clone Wars episodes- accompanying Obi-Wan Kenobi in his Jedi Starfighter.
R4-P17 is based on previously released astromech droids- such as R8-B7- and Goldie R3-S6. The figure features 5 joints- with a rotating dome- two swivel legs- and two ankles. The middle leg is removable- so that the figure can be displayed in a "rolling" or "standing" position. The permanently attached left and right legs have each two rolls in them- while the middle leg has one. This way the droid can be pushed and moved around. There were no accessories included with the figure- but the droid has a few gadgets built-in. On the front- two of the panels can be opened- with each of them containing a tool that can be pulled out. The dome contains an antenna- which needs to be manually pulled up. On the back of the droid is a hidden compartment- which contains a grappling hook attached to a string. By rotating the dome- the grappling hook can be reeled in again.
The paint application on R4-P17 is execute well- and the sculpt mimics the astromech droid's likeness from the TV show very well. It's a fun little droid- especially the "hidden" compartments with the tools in them are fun. Overall- animated-style R4-P17 is a cool figure- and adding astromech droids to the collection just never gets old!
R4-P17 is Obi-Wan Kenobi’s astromech droid. The faithful little droid provides navigational and technical assistance on board the Jedi’s starfighter. Rebuilt by Anakin Skywalker- Arfour's original dome was replaced with an R2-series dome. The droid accompanies Obi-Wan on many dangerous missions during the Clone Wars.
