Year: 1999

Jedi Master Points: 10

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.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
