  • This 6" Black Series R5-D4 astromech droid action figure was released in April 2017 exclusively at Gamestop and ThinkGeek stores
  • There are no removable panels in the dome and there were no accessories included with R5-D4
  • There is no bad motivator built into the dome
  • 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 (R2-D2 came with booster rockets, this is not the case here for R5-D4)
  • R5-D4's dome can be rotated 360 degrees (no 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
  • Unfortuantely astromech droid R5-D4 is undersized, the droid should be much bigger
  • R5-D4 has no balancing issues
  • Fun Fact: Have you ever noticed that Kenner reversed the image on the cardback? R2-D2 (barely visible) should be on the left, not the right side for this particular shot
