MORE INFORMATION

  • 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 first release - which came on a flat bubble and featured no silver paint on the feet
