I think the last time I looked at Star Wars 3 3/4″ figures was way back for Force Friday II before The Last Jedi came out. Hell, I didn’t even sneak in the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda figures that trickled out a month after in any feature.
Imagine a world where fan favourite R2-D2 had an evil sibling or relative that worked for the Empire. OK, that’s probably not the story the creators of Star Wars had in mind when creating R2-Q5 but it’s fun to imagine.
I previously looked at the Gamestop/EB Games R5-D4 and Star Wars Celebration Exclusive X-Wing Pilot Luke and was awaiting the first wave of these figures to come in from Wes over at Silver Screen Toys & Collectibles and they did about a week and a half ago!
Over a year after being released in January, 2016, one of the other famous (for all the wrong reasons) Star Wars droids arrived in my collection: the R5-D4 sixth scale figure from Sideshow Collectibles!
After Boba Fett (who I haven’t reviewed yet – he’ll be the next Sideshow figure I’ll be reviewing/putting a video up of), R2-D2 was the next figure I purchased from Sideshow Collectibles. For those who don’t want to read, there’s a video at the end of the article.
