Retail: $6.99

Assortment: Commtech Chip Figures

Assortment Number: 84185/84199

UPC Number: 7693084199

Packaging Variations:

  • None


  • Weapons and Accessories:
  • "Holographic" Princess Leia
  • Commtech Chip
  • Commtech Chip (No. C2): R2-D2's Commtech Chip includes 6 different sound effects in an information dense electronic language that sounds to the untrained ear like beeps, boops, chirps, and whistles.

  • "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope."
  • Comments: While repairing his new droid R2-D2, young Luke Skywalker unwittingly short circuits its recording system, causing a holographic image of the young Princess Leia to appear. She implores the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and then disappears as quickly as she emerged.

    Point of Interest: This version of R2-D2 originally came with a circular peg for the "ankle" articulation. This was later changed to a more accurate half-circle peg. Of the two variations, the original round peg version is much more difficult to find.

    How would you feel about Gentle Giant Ltd. producing a Dark Trooper Mini Bust from the 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces video game? It could be a single Dark Trooper or perhaps a 3-pack showcasing the various Phases of production.
    Shut up and take my money!
    I'm a completist, so I'm in regardless.
    I could be convinced to purchase this if it wasn't too difficult to obtain.
    Never played the game and don't know anything about the character, so not a likely purchase for me.
    No interest.
