    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."

    Poll
    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
