We are continuing to look at a group of figures that could be considered the precursor to the 2007 30 (77-07) Saga Legends line. In 2004, Hasbro created a collection of repacked action figures in the Star Wars "Saga" line and unofficially dubbed them the Hall Of Fame collection. This sub-line didn't last long. Next up is Luke Skywalker (Tatooine Encounter). This figure is the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: R2-A3/R5-K6/R2-F2 - TBS6 [P3] - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | August 02, 2016 at 12:10 AM ET |

The Toys R Us exclusive R2-A3/R5-K6/R2-F2 astromech 3-pack is not bad at all. Still, you have to remember that these droids are just out of scale with the 6" figures and the paint operations may not be screen accurate. If you can get past that then you'll find a nice trio of figures here. Bittersweet it is to have this mindset nowadays. Check them out in our Research Droids Reviews.
