Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) - 6-inch The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection action figure from Hasbro 40th Anniversary 6-Inch Figure

To commemorate a major milestone, Hasbro created The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection. The line, which was revealed in their showroom at the 2017 International Toy Fair, the 40th Anniversary collection features 6-inch action figures based on the ones originally released by Kenner in 1978. The first wave in this special set began hitting shelves at the end of March, 2017 and included Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, and Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2).

The Artoo-Detoo action figure on this page is a repack of the #04 R2-D2 from the initial 2013 wave of 6-inch action figures in The Black Series. The quickest way to identify this rerelease from the original version is the black stamp located on the inside of the diminutive Droid's left leg.
