R2-D2 Star Wars 2013 The Clone Wars
R2-D2 helps the natives of the planet Aleen. When C-3PO falls through a hole in the ground, R2-D2 goes in after him. The two Droids discover an underground world and come to the aid of the beings who dwell there, saving them from a deadly threat.

The first assortment of The Clone Wars was to serve as its last. Hasbro decided to cancel the line and as such, this wave, which included new figures based on Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Captain Rex, R2-D2, the 501st Legion Clone Trooper and Battle Droid. In addition, this wave also repacked the armored version of Savage Opress and Clone Commander Cody as well as the first (and last) single-carded Darth Maul.

The Clone Wars 2013 series 1 began shipping in Europe in January and in Canada in February. Hasbro has no plans on releasing these figures in the U.S. For all future Clone Wars figures, collectors will be looking for realistic looking figures in the other action figure assortments.

About This Figure:
  • For the first time since 2008, the R2-D2 figure has been altered. This time out, Hasbro did away with the original body and used the build-a-droid style body we first saw with R7-D4 (CW64). To make this new version even better, they took down the dark blue tone of the diminutive hero's head for a more screen accurate silvery-blue.

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
