MORE INFORMATION

  • Astromech Droid R5-D8 (Red Squadron) was released exclusively at Amazon.com in August 2018
  • The other two figures in this set were R2-D2 and R2-X2
  • R5-D8 was Jek Porkins' astromech droid in Star Wars: A New Hope
  • The mold used for R5-D8 is identical to R5-D4 but of course the paint application is different
  • The antenna in the dome is not removable
  • There are two front panels on the droid's body which can be opened, once opened the arms/tools can be pulled out by hand
  • The droid has two panels on the outside of each leg which can be removed but there were no booster rockets included which could be plugged in
  • R5-D4's dome can be rotated 360 degrees (clicking sound!), which then moves the middle leg in and out of the body
  • Each foot has two wheels in it which helps to balance the droid out nicely (in the 3 3/4 inch line astromech droids mostly have one wheel in each foot which sometimes makes the droids lean a bit forward or backward, this is not the case here)
  • There are no electronics built into the astromech droid and the front eye doesn't light up
  • Unfortunately astromech droid R5-D8 is undersized and it should be much bigger
  • R5-D8 has no balancing issues

PACKAGING TEXT
