Here, R2 is 10 inches of pure awesome. And we’re not just saying that — he comes with three features that aren’t available with any other R2D2 figure yet! Capture the true essence of the interstellar robot with the utility circular saw arm, laser welding arm and spacecraft linkage arm. As can be expected from Sideshow figures, this R2 features spectacular articulation and intricate attention to detail. Sequencing lights, a swiveling dome that features various moveable ports and hinged panels, rolling treads and a retractable third leg are just some of the other features that come with this guy.
And as if it couldn’t get any better, Artoo also features a hidden Skywalker lightsaber hilt with a magnetic tip that allows access to a range of his internal gadgetry, including periscope, life-scanner and multiple articulated arms for performing various cosmic duties. The special bonus accessories are comprised of Ben Kenobi’s round table, Leia’s secret holographic transmission and a multi-tiered beverage tray for R2’s one-time server gig on Jabba the Hutt’s luxury sail barge. Phew! When it comes to a deluxe R2D2 figure, this is the best of the absolute best. Snap him up while he’s hot!
