Astromech droid R7-A7 was released individually carded during the Clone Wars Collection in late January 2011. R7-A7 is Ahsoka's astromech droid- which could be seen in various Clone Wars episodes.
R7-A7 is based on previously released astromech droids- such as R4-P17- R8-B7- and Goldie R3-S6. This means that the droid has the basic 5 joints- with a swivel dome- 2 swivel legs and 2 swivel ankles. The leg in the middle of the droid is removable- so that he can be displayed in a three-legged or standing two-legged position. The permanently attached left and right legs have each two rolls in them- while the middle leg has one. This way the droid can be pushed and moved around. There were no accessories included with the figure- but the droid has a few gadgets built-in. On the front- two of the panels can be opened by hand- with each of them containing a tool that can be pulled out. The dome contains an antenna- which needs to be manually pulled up. On the back of the droid is a hidden compartment- which contains a grappling hook attached to a string. By rotating the dome- the grappling hook can be reeled in again.
The paint application on R7-A7 is cleanly applied and seems to match the character's appearance from the Clone Wars. If you own any of the animated-style astromech droids- you know exactly what you are getting here. So- it's an overall cool and fun little droid- with quite a few hidden gadgets built-in. If you like the animated-style astromech droids and are looking for a never-before-done version- you might want to consider adding R7-A7 to your line-up.
