Bandai’s Star Wars Model Kits line continues with R2-D2 And R5-D4, which will be released later this month.
These two droids are very iconic droids from the film series (of course one being more iconic than the other). I have to say these just look fantastic like their Ship Model Kits, Darth Vader and Storm Trooper model kits. You can see they share the same bodies and just have different heads that are accurate to the films.
Just like Darth and the Stormtrooper, these models are articulated. I’m guessing these will be have swivel necks and legs. They both come with third leg attachments that can be stored inside models body when they are not in use. They’ll also each come with a figure stand, as well as different gadgets and accessories that can be attached to the models. It’s a very good touch to add variety in how you want to display the models.
They are expected to be released as a set of 2 later this month and they’ll cost around $24. If you’re a fan of Bandai’s Star Wars Model kits these are a must have, especially R2. Pre-orders are currently available here.
