Compare this R3-M3 figure
Astromech Droid R3-M3 was released in 2009 as a Build A Droid figure during The Legacy Collection. The droid can be seen in the background after Obi-Wan Kenobi disables the tractor beam on the Death Star.
The droid has 5 joints- a rotating dome- 2 swivel legs- and 2 swivel ankles. The middle leg is removable- so it can be positioned either "moving"- or "standing still". All 3 legs have little rolls in them- so that the droid can be moved around. R3-M3 does not have a mechanism where the middle leg moves in and out when the dome is rotated- hence no clicking sounds. There were no accessories of any kind included with this release- and the droid does not have
any antennas that can be plugged into the dome.
The paint job on R3-M3 is nicely done- with blue on the body- dark and light grays- some "gold" on the cables by the feet and red "eyes". If you take a peek underneath the dome- you'll notice that Hasbro even painted some of the cables- which really is a nice detail. Overall- astromech droid R3-M3 is a simple- but cool figure- which looks like the droid in the original Star Wars movie.
This figure was part of the Build-A-Droid feature and didn't have a packaging text.
