Compare this R2 Whistler figure
Astromech droid R2 Whistler was released as a Walmart exclusive action figure in August 2009 together with a Corran Horn figure. The droid comes with a greenish/silver/white paint application and has a total of 5 joints (dome- 2 legs- 2 ankles). When you rotate the dome it makes the familiar clicking sound and moves the sensor scope in and out of the dome. All three legs have little rolls in them- so you can move the droid around if you choose to do so. The middle leg can be removed- this way you can pose R2 Whistler in a standing pose- or with the 3rd leg attached have him be ready to roll around. There are no other hidden gadgets to be found on the droid. All in all- it's not the most exciting Star Wars figure- but if you like astromech droids (and who doesn't?) you'll probably like this figure.
From the book I- Jedi! Rogue Squadron pilot Corran Horn searches for his wife who has disappeared while on a covert mission to track down pirates. The Force-sensitive Horn is accompanied on his quest by his astromech droid R2 Whistler- who has programs useful in detective work- escape and evasion.
