  • This R-Unit astromech droid was released in a 4-pack together with a Death Star Droid, BB-Unit and C1 astromech droid
  • The set was available on opening day of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland, CA on May 31, 2019
  • This droid changes colors based on the temperature, it can be displayed with a red body (cold) or as R2-D2 (warm)
  • The color change can be achieved by either dipping the droid in cold or warm water, or by simply placing it in a freezer or rubbing it with your hands to warm the figure up
  • The droid's original color when it was still in its packaging was red, that's why we photographed it in its red color for the website entry
  • The see the red R-Unit and the droid as R2-D2 side by side have a look here
  • The recommended temperature mentioned on the packaging for the color change to occur is 86° to 107.6° Fahrenheit (30° - 42° Celsius) and 32° - 64° Fahrenheit (0° - 18° Celsius)
  • Once the droid's color has changed it will remain in this color, however, if you have it displayed with the color tone in its cold state, and you touch it to adjust the pose or to move it, it will likely warm up the figure because of the body temperature and as a result the color will change on the droid where you touched it
  • For this R-Unit Disney used their build-a-droid sculpt, this allows for the droid to be taken apart into the dome, the body and 3 legs
  • The middle leg unplugs easily and the droid can be displayed standing with two legs
  • There were no accessories included with this R-Unit
  • The figure keeps its balance very well without rolling off
  • The dome can be rotated 360°
  • There are no hidden panels or gadgets built into this R-Unit
  • Unfortunately the color change to R2-D2 never fully turns white, it stays in a light pink color



All different types of droids populate the galaxy. Each droid is different and has their own unique personality and colors. These droids have the special ability to change color!





    Take your figure and find the date stamp on it (look on the back of the thighs, bottom of the feet etc...)
  • If you can't find a year printed on the figure check if it has a 5 digit number printed on it, enter it below and we'll pull up all the figures in the database which has the same number.
