This figure features about 7 points of articulation. POA are at its foot pads, his shoulder region and his head. That’s really all you would expect to see on an R2D2 figure and it all works as you would expect. I really like that you can move the center leg up and down by spinning his head.
For accessories the Star Wars Black Series 6 Inch R2D2 Figure comes with 2 sets of leg panels (normal and flight rockets), 2 different sensors to stick into his head and a lightsaber hilt that you can also stick into his head. None of the accessories can be stored in R2D2’s head, which is a major downer and is reflected in the sculpt score.
R2D2 may be one of the most recognizable faces from Star Wars, but does that mean that this figure is a must have? Our first look at the was quite impressive, so let’s do a full Star Wars Black Series 6 Inch R2D2 Figure Review and see if R2D2 passes the test.
The Star Wars Black Series 6 Inch R2D2 Figure is definitely not the best figure in Wave 1, but it's a figure that you pretty much HAVE to buy if you are going to be collecting this line.
