R2-D2 (Booster Rockets) - The Episode 1 Collection 1999



  • 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 second release (more common) - which was released on a bigger bubble and features silver paint on all three 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.
