    Comments: Little more than a glorified rehash of the Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) sculpt, Arfive-Defour (R5-D4) is still one very cool, unique figure. With the new head sculpt, and vac metal neck (along with red deco apposed to R2?s blue), this is definitely a figure that stands on it?s own, albeit borrowed, feet.


    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the R5-D4 figure has no major variations.

    During this current period of COVID-19 worries, how do you plan to maintain your collection?
    I'll continue my toy runs as normal.
    My local comic shop is stockpiling them for me.
    Online all the way!
    I'll see what's available when this is all over.
    I won't, it's not on my radar right now.
    This has been a wake-up call - I'll be retiring from collecting.
