4.0 out of 5 stars Features and Experience as Promised, Questionable Value
By Ian on September 2, 2017
Picked this up at Target today after unexpectedly running into a full stock of them. Drove R2 around my house for about 30 minutes, trying out all the features. Here are my initial thoughts, in no particular order:

-The controls work very well, for the most part. Sometimes there's a little delay that seems related to bluetooth, and I wish there was a dedicated controller for greater precision. But learning to operate R2 is a gentle curve. Having independent control over rotating the top dome is a nice touch.
-The built-in sounds and lights are fantastic. It makes the character come alive on a whole new level, especially to those watching. My wife loved this part.
-I enjoy the pre-set commands. R2 will do all kinds of chirping, wiggling his legs, spinning, and will even fall over (as if shocked). It seems quite durable.
-Carpet is a struggle. We have hardwood floors, but R2 cannot drive up onto even a small lip of a floor rug. If placed on the floor rug he can drive around it, but not nearly as smoothly as on hardwood. I also have concerns about debris getting stuck in the treads over time, as they don't look easily removable if something gross got rolled up in there.
-The third front leg has no wheel or tread, it's just a smooth piece of plastic. It has already scuffed considerably.
-There's something about the sheen of the white plastic that seems a bit "cheap," for whatever reason. It's an aesthetic thing, but it doesn't have the look of plastic I would expect in this price range.
-"Patrol Mode" seems to be a complete miss. Within 10 seconds R2 drives into a wall/obstacle and gets stuck there. He doesn't back up or turn himself around, even after a couple of minutes. There are clearly no proximity sensors built in.
-I don't have the Sphero BB-8, but from the videos I've watched it appears R2 is significantly slower. There is a turbo button that you can hold down to increase top speed, but it's still not fast. This limits some of the fun.
-Matching the charge cable to the copper-painted cables on R2's feet is a very nice touch.
-My dog goes absolutely nuts when R2 drives around. He's not the type of dog to rip something apart, but if you do own that type of dog this may not be the toy for you.

Finally, my initial verdict: There's a good chance it's going back. It does pretty much everything it sets out to do, and the personality is spot-on. But, having played around for about 30 minutes, I'm already thinking two things: 1) Does it do anything else?, and 2) HOW much did I pay for this?!

If I take away the fact that this is R2-D2 and objectively look at the features, the experience is basically the same as driving a slow remote-controlled car with clunky cell phone controls, but also with lots of lights and sounds. I played with R/C vehicles for several years, so this feels like a step backward.

Despite that, this IS R2-D2, and it's the best controllable version to date. If the character is an important part of your fandom and you can swallow the price you will most likely be satisfied. If the price is already bothering you, bringing R2 home at full retail may not change your mind. For up to $100 it would be an easy keeper, but for $180 I'm having trouble justifying the high cost relative to how often I would use this.

(Edit: Video added. Trying to drive on my phone while filming with the iPad. The loud howl is my dog wanting to attack R2)

5.0 out of 5 stars Missed my chance to buy at Disney World, but worth the wait for Amazon!
By Daniel S. Ciurro on July 19, 2018
I am still running R2 through his paces, so my full review will be posted shortly (as of 7/19/18).I am concentrating on the issues and problems that other reviewers have pointed out. So far so good... The pictures should give you an idea of what I'm working on.

8/10/18 review update.
I've tested pretty much everything I can think of. I tested R2-D2, R2-Q5, and BB9-E. Together, individually, and all combinations. I'm posting this update now because of all of the negative reviews and problems about the "watch with me " feature. I will give a full review and help explain how to sync the droids, device, and movie asap. But for now, just know that the watch with me features does work and is full of fun surprises.

Full review 8/12/18. This will be a pretty intense and comprehensive review, so I will break it down into sections so that you can read about the issues or problems that you are having without having to read a novel. I'll start with the devices.

Devices to app enable the droids. Android or iOS? Samsung or Apple? Tablet, pad, or smartphone? Does it matter in any way? I've tried every possible device, make, model, version, year, new, used, etc. The devices that I used the were Samsung Galaxy Tab E, Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, iPhone 4s, and iPhone 7s. Using these devices is part of the reason why this review took so long. Each device gave a different experience. From confusing and disappointing to shocking and amazing.
As far as using the device just as a remote control they all performed well. The main thing to keep in mind is the size and weight of the device. A small smartphone is a lot easier to carry around then a large and bulky tablet. Also keep in mind that your devices battery might give out before the droids. Having more than one droid connected to the device at the same time will drain the devices battery just a little faster. But, because there are only two features in the app that allows more than one droid to interact while connected to the device, it's best to have the device on a charger. More on those features further in the review. With just using the as a remote control, the smaller screen, for the most part, does not matter.
All devices remote control feature are the exact same. The screen is divided in half. The left side is used as the touch and move controller for the droid. The right side has 18 preprogrammed touch screen "emotional " sounds and motivation. On the bottom right corner there is a dome slider to rotate the heads of R2-D2 and R2-Q5 (not BB8 and BB9-E). Below the dome slider is a icon that will make the droid face in the opposite direction while keeping your finger on it (turn back around when you remove your finger) and a icon that will make the droid take off at max speed (it will stop the moment you remove your finger). The small screen devices make the right side features kind of difficult, no problem with larger screens.
The only other user controlled feature that is exactly the same for every device tested is the "draw and follow " feature. You just draw a path on the screen and the droid move along that path. Again, larger screens make this easier. As for the other app features and devices, that's where things change.
The droids, apps and features do seem to be designed with the iOS as the main mover and shaker, however...
I was using the iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy Tab E for all of my initial trials. The AR holographic simulation features worked great using the iPhones with R2-D2 and BB9-E and not at all with the tablet. I was very disappointed about this because the bigger screen would have allowed the user a more immersive experience, however...
When I got R2-Q5 I used the Samsung Galaxy S6 phone to compare with the other devices. The iPhones would not work for R2-Q5 in the AR feature, the did not work either. To my surprise and confusion, the Samsung phone worked perfectly.
More to follow...

10/04/18 review update...
I have been testing and exploring every possible aspect of the R2-D2, R2-Q5, and BB9-E app enabled droids. Android tablets, phones, iOS devices, Force Band, Commodore 64, speak and spell, etc. Individually and every combination of group pairing that I could think of. As of now, I have yet to include BB8. The rest of my review will be in sections based on the top screen menu of the app once you connect to a droid. I think this will be easier for everyone. Instead of reading a lengthy review and getting overwhelmed, the reader can just read the sections of interest.

1. Droid remote control. The first item on the top left of the menu is for user manual control and 18 preprogrammed actions. There are six items in the menu to select from. Three are for only one droid interaction and three for multiple droid interaction and connection. The remote control features is only able to control one droid at a time. Two or more droids would be too much for the app, the droids, and the user.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorprendentemente realista
Reviewed in Mexico on November 29, 2018
A todos quienes lo ven les encanta sin importar que sean fans o siquiera hayan visto las películas. Ya hubiera querido George Lucas algo así en 1977 para hacer la película. Es muy realista en todos los movimientos, luces y sonidos. La atención al detalle durante el diseño de éste pequeño robot fue increíble.

Es muy fácil de controlar con el celular, tiene muchas funciones y es fácil aprender a moverlo. La app sigue evolucionando y es cada vez mejor, la última actualización lo hace todo sencillo e intuitivo. También se puede dejar en modo "autónomo", aunque eso todavía tiene sus deficiencias que espero se pulan con el tiempo. A veces se topa con paredes repetidamente y otros problemas mínimos.

Solo de dejarlo cargando en un escritorio, se mantiene alerta, volteando a su alrededor y con algunas luces encendidas. Los mecanismos son muy silenciosos, muchísimo más que los de otras marcas, lo cual ayuda mucho al realismo. Lo único que escuchas son los sonidos que emite cuando se "comunica". Si lo tocas inmediatamente reacciona como si se pusiera feliz. Ya cuando está andando en piso (o alfombra siempre que sea corta) hace un ruido razonable al avanzar, menor que de otros robots comparables.

Recrear escenas de la película es un reto muy interesante y divertido. Se requiere práctica pero todos los sonidos y movimientos están disponibles, por lo que se puede lograr con tanto realismo y detalle que uno puede estar horas haciendolo sin aburrirse.

Por si fuera poco, si tienes la "Force band" u otros robots Star Wars Sphero, éstos pueden interactuar entre sí. Y si tienes alguna de las películas, los robots Sphero pueden "verla" junto contigo y reaccionan cada uno a diferentes escenas.
