Star Wars 6” Black Series 01 R2-D2 features a raised periscope and is accompanied by an non-ignited lightsaber hilt and a handful of attachments. R2-D2’s various retractable appendages and instruments enable him to serve the functions of starship mechanic and computer interface specialist. R2 originally performs maintenance duty on behalf of the Royal Engineers of Naboo aboard Queen Amidala’s royal starship. He enables the ship to escape the Trade Federation’s blockade. Later, on Tatooine, R2-D2 first encounters C-3PO, the protocol droid which is being slowly pieced together and assembled by the young Anakin Skywalker.
