More than 15-inches tall, this sophisticated R2-D2 model boasts a secret cargo compartment, a unique swing-down utility arm that's also a beverage holder, a removable sensor scope, a working light beam, sound-processing microphones, and an adaptable droid mood-status indicator. Sonar navigational technology and infrared location sensors help make him one the most advanced droids around.
Take Advantage of Three Interactive Modes
Intergalactic missions will be more fun with a reliable droid at your side. In companion mode, R2-D2 responds to commands like "Go on patrol," "Light Beam," and "Play Message." Star Wars fans are sure to appreciate the accuracy of the messages, which are culled from famous missions he remembers.
You can even ask R2 about friends including Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, Darth Vader, and Jabba the Hutt. He has a different reaction to each name based on his "feelings" for the characters. And if you hit R2 on the head, he'll make irritated beeping sounds and try to move away from you. As you get to know your droid, you'll realize that the noises and motions he makes correspond to his "mood."
In game mode, R2 responds to more complicated commands. He'll act as a sentry to protect your important stuff, dance to cantina music, spin around, or play light tag. The third mode is the most complex. This command mode lets you give pointed directions that control R2's movements. Tell him to turn left and right or go forward whenever you want, or set a preprogrammed course for him to follow.
While R2 responded to simple commands with no problems, we had difficulty getting him to respond reliably to more complex requests. We trust that, like with any voice-operated electronic system, over time it will get easier to produce a wider range of commands that R2 consistently responds to. Until then, his movie-accurate look, the way he responds to simple commands, and the convenient beverage holder make him a fun comrade.

One star because it came used and I realized later that toys r us sells this for $40 cheaper. Why are you charging MORE for something that's already been used!? Read morePublished 13 days ago by good stuff
A worthless expensive product with absolutely no manufacturer or Amazon support. I purchased on last November for my grandson as a Christmas present. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Parvin Darabi
This was a letdown. It only works sometimes and the frustration level for my son makes it not worth it.
It's not as cool as it looks.
Stunning Looking and Fun! Recommended! I ran across one big issue with the Voice Activation.

Very disappointing, the commands only work sporadically and frequently the unit ends up backing into a wall not able to recover. Save your money for a more reliable toy.Published 2 months ago by KLWeng
