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.

This ended up being my fault. I read through the directions the next day (why would I do that initially) and found that I had not activated his moving mechanism - the red light on the front - so he could not move, and refused to do a lot of the commands.
Once that was figured out, R2 became a blast to play with. He understands most of the commands on the first try, with the trick being to pause between some of the words and wait for his acknowledgment with his "yes beep".
Being the geek that I am, I would highly recommend this toy for fans of star wars.
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. :-)
Only two downsides in my opinion - He takes 4 D size batteries and 4 AA size batteries that he can go through fairly quickly. I recommend rechargable batteries. Changing his batteries requires unscrewing a panel on his backside, which can be a bit tedious. If he could be recharged simply by plugging him into an adapter, that would be nice.
The other downside is that he may be easily damaged if small children pick him up and bang him around too much. The instruction manual explicitly warns to NOT let R2 fall down stairs or go outside. Still, in the hands of someone who knows how to be nice to their toys, he will be fine.
