R5-D4 R5-D4 - VC40 The Vintage Collection from Hasbro A New Hope

Even though the VC40 R5-D4 is a repaint of the 2008 Legacy Collection R5-A2 Build A Droid, it was a very welcome addition to The Vintage Collection. Sadly, since Hasbro opted not to reuse the 2006 Saga Collection version, this R2 unit doesn't have a bad motivator. What it does have, however, is a much more screen accurate paint job.

The fifth wave of action figures in The Vintage Collection was sort of a mixed bag. The assortment featured the VC20 Yoda, which was originally slated for the third wave, along with six kit bashed or repainted figures including the repainted VC38 Clone Trooper (212th Battalion), the kit bashed VC39 Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape), the kit bashed VC41 Stormtrooper, the kit bashed VC42 Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony), and the repacked VC43 Commander Gree. This assortment didn't ship to Canada, but the Yoda, Luke, and Stormtrooper were ever offered North of the 49th in future waves.
