Okay, This Is Pretty Much the Ultimate R2-D2 Toy



Most Artoo action figures suffer from one significant weakness – they simply cannot replicate everything Artoo did in the movies. The Black Series one comes close, with a lot of detachable doodads, but now Sideshow’s 1/6th scale version looks to have it all, from working lights to Holo Leia, opening panels (all of them) and Jabba’s drink tray.

It’ll cost a small fortune, of course, and then you’ll have to get Threepio and other characters to stand around him, and this is how bad collector habits get started. Sigh.
