  • Astromech Droid R2-A3 was released in a Toys'R'Us exclusive 3-Pack
  • The set was first available online during San Diego Comic Con 2016, but was later sold at regular Toys'R'Us stores
  • The 3-Pack included astromech droids R2-A3, R5-K6 and R2-F2
  • R2-A3 was Wedge Antilles' astromech droid during the Battle Of Yavin
  • For this astromech droid Hasbro re-used the existing Black Series R2-D2 mold, which is slightly undersized
  • The droid has 3 removable panels in the top of the dome which fit only very loosely, they'll likely fall out when you pick up the figure to carry it somewhere
  • R2-A3 came with 3 removable dome panels, 2 leg panels, 1 sensorscope and 1 periscope
  • The sensorscope and the periscope can be plugged into holes in the dome
  • There is a third hole which has no purpose (it made sense for R2-D2, because that's the spot where Luke Skywalker's lightsaber hilt could be plugged in)
  • There are two front panels on the droid's body which can be opened, once opened the arms/tools can be pulled out
  • The droid has two panels on the outside of each leg which can be removed (R2-D2 included booster rockets which could be attached, but this is not the case here because there were no booster rockets included)
  • R2-A3's dome can be rotated 360 degrees, 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
  • Unfortuantely this astromech droid is undersized in comparison with other 6 inch scale figures


R2-A3 was an astromech droid who assisted Rebel Alliance pilot Wedge Antilles. During the Battle of Yavin, R2-A3 and Antilles were forced to retreat after damage was dealt to their X-Wing's engine.
