Collectors young and old will appreciate the details of this Star Wars Interactive Electronic R2-D2 Astromech Droid. Complete with movie-accurate messages and flashing lights, this droid responds to voice commands and has a special arm designed to keep your beverage handy. This friendly robot is designed to be a fun companion for kids aged eight and up.
Celebrate Star Wars 30th Anniversary by inviting this movie-accurate droid into your life. Once the loyal companion to Queen Amdala, this utility droid is programmed to be your devoted helper and friend. Help him get ready to serve you by snapping his steering legs into place and attaching the projector piece to his domed top. You'll need to use a Phillips screwdriver to insert four "AA" batteries and four "D" cell batteries in his side.
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.

I can see this friendship lasting a long time, but I might pick up a second unit just in case R2 goes out on patrol for a pack of smokes and never comes back.
I have contacted Hasbro to see if there will be an updated release to this model for the upcoming Star Wars movie, "The Last Jedi". They said that there aren't any plans, but that they would relay my message to their Branding Department. The first edition of the R2D2 Fully Operational Droid was released in 2002, where the buyer had to assemble the two legs. Then, in 2007 another edition was released, Star Wars Interactive Astromech Droid which was completely assembled. The only changes that I saw between the two revisions, was an update to the Sonar Navigational System. In 2002 they used two metal screens, and in the 2007 model, they used clear plastic lens.
Should Hasbro come out with a third revision, I hope they concentrate on the voice recognition area. I really do not see an eight year old having the same patience level of an adult. But then again, how many adults have patience now a days. :-)
I am a self professed lover of SW like many others out there and I received this as a gift from my wife. Althought this is largest sized R2D2 you can find on the market under $500, its very much a gimmicky kind of item and not many adults are going to use this past the first week and it will become a very expensive paperweight.
Generally speaking though this item does as described and can drive around the room and short length carpet while doing the standard boops and beeps of R2D2. Although I will say that my wife had a much easier time controlling this than I did and often times you needed to have a certain cadence for it to identify certain names and controls, of which are clunky at best.
Overall build quality is Good, although out of the box the R2D2 head had some paint consistency issues and the way the legs are afixed to R2 will be prone to developing loose joints which will take away the novelty of his movement as one leg goes straight and the other drags behind.
This is a very neat product but if your on the fence I would recommend buying a Lego product, coffee mug, or any other related R2 item you can find on Amazon as this one is just too expensive of a toy and if you ever turn it on, your likely going to keep it leg locked and just use it to show someone that it does work.......sort of. This would make a great starting shell for a R2D2 cd player/radio if they ever had the mind to do it....
