    Points of Interest:
  • R2-D2 is a repaint of the figure from 2005's Early Bird Kit, which was based on 2004's VOTC R2-D2. In addition, a new non-removable side panel with restraining bolt has been added.
  • This version of R2-D2 is a combination of the entire "Jawa Capture" sequence: the energy effect is from when he gets blasted by the Jawas, however, he also includes a restraining bolt, which was not installed until afterwards.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes R3-A2's head & middle leg.
  • This figure has also been found in LC wave 13, with the left leg of BG-J38.

    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.
