It’s time to add the Amazon exclusive Red Squadron droid pack to our The Black Series [Phase III] Visual Guide. Click below to check out the full guide page. You can also read our complete review of this set in our review database right here. For some reason, this set has been a bear to find regularly in-stock on Amazon, but if you check frequently you can usually catch small quantities at a time a few times a day.
Let’s take a look at the Amazon exclusive Red Squadron (R2-D2/R5-D8/R2-X2) three-pack set. It’s partly nice and partly problematic.

We just received our sample of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Red Squadron three-pack of astromech droids. Forgetting that these sculpts are terribly out of scale, the set comes off as a genuinely nice effort. We have one major problem, however, R2-X2 has a white dome, NOT a silver one. This is deco basics, and we’re very disappointed Hasbro screwed this up. They did nail the deco on R5-D8 and took into consideration all of the differences that set it apart from R5-D4 (which is something they completely botched on the 3.75″ version). The battle-damaged R2-D2 looks good, but a true retooling will be required before it’s screen-accurate to the blasts he received during the Battle of Yavin. (Remember the 2008 TAC Luke Skywalker/R2-D2 Droid Factory set? That’s what Hasbro has to do to the 6″ version of R2-D2.) Aside from the figures suffering from too small of a scale, the set is costly. These three small figures will set you back over $60 with tax. Anyway, click through to check out this fun set.
