Astromech droid R5-P9 was available in a Toys'R'Us exclusive 4-pack titled "Battle Over Endor (2 of 2)"- and was released in January 2011 in the Shadow Of The Dark Side Collection. The set included R5-P9- Y-Wing pilot Ekelarc Yong- A-Wing pilot Sila Kott and Tie Fighter pilot Lt. Oxixo. R5-P9 was never clearly seen in The Return Of The Jedi- but the droid was supposed to be in Ekelarc Yong's Y-Wing fighter when he was shot down during the Battle of Endor.
The astromech has five joints- including a rotating and clicking dome- which moves an antenna or tool in and out of it. The legs and ankles have swivel joints- which work quite well. The middle leg is removable- so R5-P9 can be placed in a 3-legged or 2-legged position. Both legs on the outside have also rolls in them- so the droid can be moved around. The only accessory included with R5-P9 was an antenna- which can be plugged into the dome. There are no hidden gadgets or panels that can be opened on the droid's body.
The paint app on R5-P9 is very well done- with subtle weathering and dirt on the astromech's body. It's subtle- but it's there and looks nice. Overall- the droid looks nice- and fits right in with all the other astromech droids released to date. If you are a fan of those little droids (and who isn't?)- and you are looking for a never-before-done version- then R5-P9 is for you!
