Remote Controlled R2-Q5
Series: Star Wars; Target Exclusive
Release Date: 2009
Comments: Japan seems to get a lot of cool stuff before the US; Transformers, Godzilla and remote controlled Astromech droids.
This toy is simply fantastic. The sculpt is better than average, the gloss black paint job looks snazzy, and the remote control aspect is perfect. With the lightsaber hilt control you can light up the eye socket, make the little guy beep and make him drive around. Couldn’t really ask for much more in such a small package. This is a Star Wars figure to play with, not one to sit on a shelf and get dusty.
