Star Wars Revoltech R2-D2 Action Figure Announced By Kaiyodo

It’s the day after Christmas and clearly there are still a few nice surprises to end an amazing 2014. Kaiyodo has just officially announced the Star Wars Revoltech R2-D2 action figure.

R2-D2 has been shown at various toy shows over the past year, but this is the first time that Kaiyodo has released any official images. Looking at the images you are probably absolutely amazed at just how much articulation was packed into the little droid.
iculation that you can expect from just about any other R2-D2 figure, but this Revoltech version is of course going to take his articulation and features to the next level.

First, he has articulation in the ankles, allowing you to pose the figure on just one foot! I don’t know why you would want to do such a thing, but at least you know it’s possible.

The figure then also features a sort of “pull back and go” feature, which allows you to attach it to the figure and pull it back and watch it zoom off. The best was that I can describe this feature would be to say it’s very similar to the small cars that you can pull back and charge, then release them and they take off.

Finally, you can also spin the figure’s head around and the lights on his dome are supposed to change color. It’s rather hard to see in the images, but it’s a cool feature none the less.

R2-D2 is the fourth release in the series and is going to be the perfect companion piece for the recently announced 6-inch Revoltech C-3PO. It’s currently available at
He’s going to have most of the standard artBBTS for pre-order
, priced to sell at $54.99.
