Another Cool Remote Control R2-D2 Unit

Remote Control R2 unit

We’ve certainly been spoilt rotten with Star Wars gadgets of late and this latest bit of Star Wars memorabilia brings back fond memories of my old figurine collection (which I sold to Paul Parnaby for £40 about 25 years or so ago).

We’ve seen remote control R2D2 units before but this one is extra cool as it’s the size of the original collectors figure (they are action figures not dolls).

The R2 unit is controlled via a light sabre styled remote and can move forwards, spin round and even has a rotating head complete with operational (it lites up) LED eye. Think Geek rightly describe this as every Star Wars fanboy’s wet dream come true (well after Leigh in that bikini).


Check out the video of how it would look battling against the other figures in your serious collection.

You can get your own limited edition R/C Star Wars R2-D2 Action Figure from Think Geek for $29.99, cool.
