This R2-D2 is based on a deleted scene from The Phantom Menace
R2 has rockets on 4 sides - 2 in the front and 2 in the back
The booster rockets are revealed by rotating the dome a little - which opens the panels on all sides
The middle leg can be pushed into the droid - which then moves the booster rockets out of the body
Unfortunately - the middle leg can only be pushed in a little bit - not enough to make R2 stand on two legs
The mechanics don't work all too well on the droids we've tested - and the booster rockets got stuck a lot
The version pictured here is the first release - which came on a flat bubble and featured no silver paint on the feet
The astromech droid R2-D2 serves on board the Naboo Royal Starship of Queen Amidala. A multifaceted utility droid - R2-D2 becomes a hero in the struggle against the Trade Federation's invasion of Naboo.
