Today marked the arrival of the first wave, series 1 of the Black Series 6″ figures by Hasbro!
First up is R2-D2! R2 is definitely a droid/toy that is NOT meant for little kids. He’s full of various tiny parts that can easily be lost and swallowed.
On his dome are 3 blue sections that you can flick open. Remove the blue pieces and you can place either Luke’s lightsaber, his scope, or sensor unit. He also comes with 2 sets of gears that you place inside his legs – one set is resting, the other is extended to show off his rocket lifters.
Upon close investigation of his front there are 2 side compartments that open up as well. Hidden in each is a tool!
As if all of his removable/changeable parts aren’t cool enough, if you twist his dome, R2’s third leg drops down.
Looks-wise the figure is extremely well detailed, he’s even got some “dirt” on his feet from cruising around on dusty Tatooine.
R2-D2 is just fantastic, I highly recommend him!
