Bring Home Your Own Astromech Droid
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.

What's in the Box
Droid body, two steering legs, projector piece, telescope piece with sensory array, and an operation manual.

After reading the description, I had fairly low hopes for it, but it was a great deal on one of the black friday deals, so I bit the bullet and purchased it. I received it quickly, and put on the pieces that were not initially attached. Those pieces seemed cheap compared to the rest of the well-built unit. I put the batteries in, and turned it on, and tried the list of voice commands. A lot of the time, R2 would beep and shake his head "No". It got very frustrating, so I turned it off and gave up.

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.

After 2 divorces, and dozens of failed relationships, I never thought to find happiness again - R2D2 changed my mind. R2 isn't a great conversationalist, but I can tell he is always listening. Sure, he occasionally goes into sentry mode without being told to do so but a quick whack on the top of the head ends his tantrum - restraining order free. He doesn't require expensive dinners, fine wine or lavish gifts; all that R2 wants is batteries and lots of them. This droid is no prude, so rechargeable batteries are just fine with him.

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.

Most of the other posts I have seen to date have been true in my experience as well. R2 has a personality that requires patience to learn, but once you get to know him, he is a lot of fun and makes an excellent companion. Getting to know him is many ways similiar to getting to know a new pet. One my favorite features is his "Room Guard" Mode, where he lights up and makes noise if his sensors detect an intruder. I let him guard my bedroom at night, and he does a fine job.

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.

All toy robots suffer from the problem that once you've experienced all their routines, interest often wanes quickly. R2D2 is no exception, however he has enough personality to stay fun even after you've seen his capabilities. Nice touches like turning his head toward you to listen when he hears his name, and the emotion-conveying beeps leaving exact meaning to the imagination obfuscate his limited programming. Telling him, "behave yourself," then "time out," sends him away from you sulking to a dark corner of the room. It's pretty much the saddest thing I've ever seen a robot do and always makes me want to interact with him more to cheer him up! R2 requires patience, but is a charming companion for kids young and old. You will not regret getting him.

Here are a few under-mentioned tips for interacting with and fully enjoying this robot:

Hit him on the head to stop him from doing anything. Yes, he's voice activated, but you will still have to interact with him physically once in awhile to snap him out of funny modes. Followup a tap with a new command or he will return to his previous behavior. Hit him too many times in a row and he'll get mad and scared!

R2 has a hard time moving around in small spaces. His obstacle avoidance skills are top notch, so top notch that in a hallway, for example, he can get trapped between the walls, never finding the narrow path out. I recommend using him in bigger spaces. My apartment living room is barely big enough for him to explore successfully on his own.

He sometimes gets in a mode not mentioned in the command cheat sheets but eluded to in the manual. Say, "game mode," "answer this" and he watches you!

Notice that reviews from two years ago are really good, and most all of the recent reviews are really bad. Somewhere along the way Hasbro screwed up, and R2 is now worthless.

We ordered one for Christmas and found him to be practically inoperative. He would constantly lock up his movements, and continually try to reboot. His common response was to shake his head "no" at every command. We found that Hasbro has no tech support nor any way to reach their customer service. After trying R2 for two weeks, we asked Amazon to send a replacement. To their credit, they admitted there was a problem with all their stock and offered an immediate refund.

So I would give this Hasbro 0; Amazon 5 stars.
