R2-D2 Steals The Show With Episode II Hot Toys Sixth Scale FigureJose Lopez
If there’s any character that is a constant through all of Star Wars mythology, whether it be the Prequels, the Sequels or the Original Trilogy, it has to be the astromech droid, R2-D2. The adorable sidekick to both Luke Skywalker and fellow droid C-3PO, R2-D2 is an absolute must for any and all Star Wars collectors. Hot Toys has just revealed the preorder for the character, specifically the version which appeared in Episode II, which is available now!
This iteration of R2 is jam-packed with accessories and features, making this release a worthy addition to any Sixth Scale Star Wars collection. Not only does he come with an LED light-up feature and sound effects that recreate his iconic beeps and boops, but there is a bevy of hidden compartments that open to reveal plenty of surprises. A diecast metal dome adds to the high-end appearance of the figure, giving the little guy some weight as well.
This is the third release of R2-D2 that Hot Toys is producing, but the first that specifically celebrates his appearance in Attack of the Clones. While one R2-D2 is likely enough for the average 1:6 scale figure fan, I don’t need to tell you that an avid Star Wars collector is definitely going to need all three, so this newest preorder is a no-brainer!
The Hot Toys Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones – R2-D2 Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for a release in Q2 – Q3, 2023.
