    Comments: R2-D2 is a tripodal computer repair and information retrieval robot, or astromech droid. As an R2 unit, he is equipped with navigational starfighter interfaces, plus extensive sensor packages and numerous devices to facilitate in-flight repairs: laser arc welder, circular saw, grasper arm, and fire extinguisher. He communicates through information-dense chips, beeps and whistles and seems to take pleasure in causing anxiety for his neurotic companion, the protocol droid C-3PO.

    R2-D2 played several important roles in the rebellion's victory over the Empire at the Battle of Yavin. First, he escaped the consular ship Tantive IV with the technical readouts of the Death Star hidden in his memory banks, making him and C-3PO the most hunted droids in the galaxy. Then, he brought Luke Skywalker together with Obi-Wan Kenobi, making possible the delivery of the plans to the Rebel alliance. Using that information, a small group of fighters launched an attack against the Death Star. R2-D2 served as "co-pilot" aboard Luke's Red-5 X-Wing, monitoring the fighter's control and tactical systems during the final attack run that destroyed the Empire's ultimate Battle Station.

    Point of Interest: The R2-D2 figure from the PrincessLeia and R2-D2 set is the same figure as this one.

    Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
    Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
    1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
    I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
    This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
    I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
    I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
