R2-D2 #09 R2-D2 - The Black Series - Series 2 from Hasbro 2013 The Black Series

This Brave, loyal droid accompanies Anakin Skywalker on missions that take them from Naboo to Geonosis.

The Black Series #09 R2-D2 action figure may not have all the bells and whistles, but it has everything it needs to be a bona fide flying R2-D2. At the point of its release, it is the most screen accurate flying R2 Hasbro has released following versions with unused conceptual rockets, mandatory exposed third legs, or hideous yellow paint applications. This version is a repaint of the 2007 30th Anniversary Collection 30-04 R2-D2.

The second wave of figures in The Black Series basic collection also included the completely new, fully articulated #10 Pablo-Jill, the definitive new #11 Luminara Unduli, the repainted TVC buck #12 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper, the kit bash #13 Stormtrooper, the completely new #14 Mara Jade figures. This assortment was originally intended to be a part of Hasbro's cancelled 2013 Droid Factory Legacy Collection and most of them were first show in public at Hasbro's 2012 San Diego Comic-Con pavilion and the rest were revealed in the exact same location one year later.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
