  • Comments: This miniature remote control R2-D2 from Japan is just about the same scale as the Hasbro action figure version, but includes all the bells and whistles (literally!) that has made R2 a favorite among fans. As the official and exclusive U.S retailer for this collectible, this one will be hard to find elsewhere.

    With the mini-lightsaber remote, R2 will move forward or turn on command, rotate his dome as he rolls, beep and whistle, and illuminate his photo-receptor "eye." Not since the 1978 Japanese/Canadian exclusive wind-up R2 has such a cool item come along for fans and figure collectors. R2 measures approximately 2.5" tall, and includes batteries for the remote and R2 himself.

    Window box packaging attractively displays both R2-D2 and the lightsaber remote, and includes the stunning "Vader in Flames" graphics that mesh with the U.S. carded Episode III action figure line. This is one toy you'll definitely want to take out of the package, though.

    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.
