This R2-D2 action figure was released in
2005 in the Revenge Of The Sith Collection.
It was exclusively available at StarWarsShop.com.
Hasbro gave the figure two joints and included
one accessory (lightsaber remote control).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Droid:
- This R2-D2 was produced by Tomy for the Japanese market
- The figure has electronics built in and comes with a small remote control which looks like a lightsaber
- In the United States, the droid was exclusively made available through www.starwarsshop.com
- R2 is slightly taller than other Hasbro R2-D2 figures, but it's still small enough to kind of go along with the 3 3/4 line of figures
- The batteries can be exchanged on the back of R2 D2 and on the lightsaber remote control as well
- There are on and off buttons on the droid and on the remote control
- Artoo can move forward and turn, rotate the dome, light up his front eye, and make the regular R2-D2 beeps and whistles
- There are no removable parts or hidden gadgets built in
- Overall, this is a pretty fun figure!
The articulation details are as follows: rotating dome, middle leg
