"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.

Luke checks out R5-D4 as the Jawas try to persuade him to buy the droid.

Once a toy designer creates a base sculpt that can be utilized for other characters, new characters enter the toy line at a quicker pace. It also helps Kenner/Hasbro save on tooling costs because they’re able to use existing tooling or tweaked existing tooling to create new Star Wars action figures. Once they produced R2-D2 for the Action Collection line, it was a huge surprise when they added R5-D4 to the line as well. The first three small-scaled Action Collection figures were general marketplace items, but Kenner/Hasbro also produced a wave of three exclusives to Walmart. R2-D2 (with detachable utility arms), R5-D4, and Wicket The Ewok made up the second (and final) wave of small-scaled 12 Inch Figures under The Power Of The Force “2” line look. R5-D4 turned out inexplicably well. Kenner/Hasbro developed an all-new R5-series Astromech Droid head sculpt for the existing R2-D2 body, completely repainted the figure and added a lot of “dirt” to the paint job, and subsequently created the first R5-D4 12 Inch Figure produced. What’s more, Hasbro developed a separate removable antenna accessory for extra play value. The figure has appropriate dimensions, and R5-D4 looks fantastic next to the Jawa Action Collection figure (as well as R2-D2). Hasbro did a wonderful job on these astromech droids. We won’t claim that they’re perfect, but we’d be remiss not to compliment how well they turned out in this line of larger-sized action figures.
