    Comments: Pull droid halves apart to reveal launcher. Load the projectile into launcher, then press button to fire.

    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."
