R2-D2 (Red Squadron 3-Pack) - The Black Series 6" 2018



  • Astromech Droid R2-D2 (Red Squadron) was released exclusively at Amazon.com in August 2018
  • The other two figures in this set were R5-D8 and R2-X2
  • This R2-D2 figure is a repaint of the previously released Black Series R2-D2 figure from 2013
  • Even though the three panels in the top of the dome can be removed, there were no accessories included with the figure which could be plugged in
  • There are two arms which can be manually pulled out on the front of the body
  • R2-D2's dome can be rotated 360° which then moves the middle leg in and out of the body (it makes a clicking sound)
  • The two outside panels on R2-D2's legs can be opened but unfortunately Hasbro didn't include booster rockets to plug in
  • Each foot has two wheels in it which helps to balance the droid out nicely
  • The paint application on R2-D2 looks good, it was heavily weathered and dirtied up
  • The Red Squadron R2-D2 figure is unique from previous releases because of the different paint application and less accessories included
  • Unfortunately R2-D2 is too small in comparison with other 6" scaled figures


A resourceful astromech droid, R2-D2 showed great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he served Luke Skywalker during the Battle of Yavin alongside Red Squadron.
