R2-M5 was a red R2-series astromech droid produced by Industrial Automaton that served the Royal Naboo Security Forces. It was one of the astromech droids aboard the Queen's starship as of 32 BBY. When a Trade Federation battleship opened fire on the Naboo Royal Starship, R2-M5 went out, along with R2-N3 and other astromech droids, to fix an imbalance in the starboard engines. Both droids were blasted off the hull.
Originally displayed in their booth at Celebration VI, Kotobukiya's R2-M5 ARTFX+ was always intended to be an exclusive, but it wasn't made available for pre-order until September 17, 2014. This great addition to their Astromech Droid ARTFX+ collection was available exclusively at Barnes & Noble stores in the forth quarter of 2014.
