All the possibilities of artificial intelligence were brought to the forefront of the public’s consciousness with these two iconic robots. Here are the ArtFX+ Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO from Kotobukiya. These eight-inch figures are like no others.
R2-D2 can be posed either upright on two legs or leaning back on all three legs. C-3PO’s arms are poseable and include your choice of hands for a wide variety of display options. Take your pick of AT AT Driver and Darth Vader from the same series, too — collect the whole squad!
After 35 years of fantastic plastic standing tall in pop culture at 3¾ inches, Hasbro is releasing the Star Wars Black Series this year, beginning a new set of 6-inch figures that will feature more articulation and an increased attention to detail.
Eight figures are planned for 2013 – Hasbro will primarily draw characters from the original Star Wars trilogy of films while also bringing in key players from the prequels.
The first wave of four, just out now, includes Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter flight suit, fan-favorite droid R2-D2, bad guy Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.
Star Wars fan? Prepare to drool as we show you some very, very rare new figures in two sets.
The first is the Clone Wars 2013 Wave 1, featuring R2-D2, Captain Rex, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, a 501st Jet Pack Trooper, Darth Maul, a battle droid, Savage Opress and Commander Cody S4.
Next up, the Movie Heroes 2013 Wave 1 sends out Obi-Wan (Episode II), a sandtrooper, a battle droid, Episode III Anakin, Episode I R2-D2, Episode II Jango Fet, Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Episode II Yoda.
These guys are only available as cases of 12 and each figure is about 3.75 inches tall and features some awesome articulation and weaponry. Both sets are incredibly rare, too, so you should definitely snag these while you can if you’re a collector!
