I’ve been steadily building my Hot Toys Star Wars collection over the last two years. One main character that’s missing? Everyone’s favorite droid. Hot Toys debuted its latest R2-D2 figure and while it’s based on his Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, this should fit just fine with my Original Trilogy set.
I’m digging all of the extra features. He’s not going to be 12″ but the price isn’t going to be significantly cheaper so it’s good to see Hot Toys ensuring we get a quality version of the legendary astromech droid.
Here’s Hot Toys’ synopsis:
Hot Toys’ new Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 1/6th scale R2-D2 collectible figure specially features a meticulously crafted diecast metal dome, touch LED light-up functions, highly detailed mechanical construction with weathering effects, and remote controlled sound effect function featuring 12 iconic R2-D2 sounds!
This is the droid you will be looking for to add to your great Star Wars collection!
I’m hoping Hot Toys does finish off the set and get us a C3-P0 too. Preferably in an Empire Strikes Back detachable setup and net bag.
