"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."

The adventure continues with this exciting introduction of exclusive figures from the Star Wars trilogy! Each figure is authentically styled with incredible detail.

COLLECT THEM ALL!

Luke and R2-D2 ponder their fate after a crashlanding on Dagobah.

It wasn’t until the bitter end of 1997 that Hasbro began working on some of the smaller-scaled characters for the Action Collection 12 Inch Figures line. The first three, including R2-D2, Yoda, and a Jawa, were eagerly anticipated by the collecting community. And all three became a reality as they arrived at retail in January of 1998. R2-D2 was a long-awaited released. Hasbro made C-3PO in the Collector Series line a year prior, and fans of this line were desperate to finish up the classic droid duo. The packaging of R2-D2 sources the character to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, but the figure is clean, without any battle-damage or dirt added. It could very well be sourced to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope if the packaging was more generic. R2-D2 doesn’t come with a lot of articulation, but most of the key points are added. These points include a swiveling dome, swivel legs, a slide-out third leg, and hinge-jointed feet. Unfortunately, none of the panels open up to show tools underneath, but Kenner/Hasbro did ensure they gave R2-D2 a "brushed-nickel" dome instead of the chrome-style they give the 3.75” action figures. Hasbro didn’t tool separate feet wiring, which we also find disappointing. Also, of note, the feet have rolling wheels, which allows you to roll the astromech droid as needed in your collection. It’s a decent interpretation of the plucky droid, and we can expect Hasbro to reuse the mold to bring us new Action Collection figures.
