This R2-D2 action figure was released in
2006 in The Saga Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure five joints and included
five accessories (lantern, big container, small container, stand, random holographic figure).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Droid:
- This version of R2-D2 (Battle Of Hoth) was released individually carded
The figure is a repaint of the Vintage Original Trilogy R2-D2 from 2004
This time however the front panel is glued shut and Hasbro included different accessories
The figure was subtitled by Hasbro with "Battle Of Hoth", but the accessories included with Artoo are from
the "Arrival On Dagobah" scene
Artoo's head can be rotated 360 degrees, which then makes a clicking sound and moves the droid's sensor scope in and out of the dome
The very top of the dome has a clear see-through piece of plastic in it, when light shines on it, R2-D2's front eye will light up
The middle leg can be unplugged
All three feet have small wheels in them
The included two container accessories can be opened
The articulation details are as follows: rotatable dome, 2 swivel legs, 2 swivel ankles
As the assault on the Rebel's secret base on Hoth comes to an end, R2-D2 (Artoo-Detoo) is ready to take off in Luke Skywalker's X-Wing fighter. As the two flee the ice planet, Luke informs Artoo that he is not planning to meet at the rendezvous point with the other Rebels. Instead, Luke is planning to go to the Dagobah system, a decision that makes Artoo a bit uneasy.
