  • Astromech Droid R2-A5 was released in an Entertainment Earth exclusive 6-pack in October 2016
  • The entire set included astromech droids of Jabba's Bartender, R7-F5, QT-KT, R7-D4, R2-C2 and R2-A5
  • All the astromech droid molds used for this set are identical, Hasbro used this particular sculpt first for The Vintage Collection R2-D2 #25
  • This version of R2-A5 could be seen in the original Star Wars before George Lucas decided to add a Ronto into Mos Eisley
  • The front panel can be opened and one of the tools can be manually extended
  • Unfortunately, every astromech droid in the set reviewed here on J.B. had issues keeping the panel closed all the way
  • The dome can be rotated 360 degrees (no clicking sound), but the sensorscope needs to be taken out first
  • When the middle leg is pushed into the body, the sensorscope pops out of the dome
  • When the sensorescope is pused into the dome, the middle leg will extend out
  • The left and right leg each have two wheels in them so that the droid can be moved around
  • A nice detail which is included on all the astromech droids in this set are the cables on the front of the feet (newer Disney Build-A-Droids don't have this detail anymore)
  • R2-A5 stands well on display without any balancing issues
  • The figure was painted nicely without any factory errors or smudges on the droid
  • To a long time fan of the origianl Star Wars, it's pretty amazing that they've released an astromech droid which technically doesn't appear in it anymore

Packaging Text

There was no additional information on the box but the Entertainment Earth website had following information: Rounding out the collection is R2-A5. If he looks familiar, he should. You first saw him in 1977! This white and green robot was seen rolling around Mos Eisley near Luke's landspeeder when the Imperial Sandtroopers and Stormtroopers came to ask about various droids they were looking for. You know how that story ends, but did you also know that this figure represents a droid design that was removed from the movie during the Special Edition edits of 1997? It's true! Bring home a lost piece of movie history with this remarkable figure and the entire exclusive action figure set.
