    Points of Interest:
  • This figure of R5-D4 was originally planned to be an "Attack R2-D2" figure, but was changed to this droid instead.
  • R5-D4's bad motivator is the result of conflicting stories. Some tales claim R2-D2 sabotaged the droid, others claim that R5-D4 intentionally blew his own motivator, and another tale claims that R5-D4 is actualy a Jedi named "Skippy."

    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.
