Out of all the Star Wars merch we’ve been “working” tirelessly to cover, none has got quite the reaction from bystanders as this remote-controlled R2-D2. The cute droid “beeps” and “boops” and can be programmed to perform a boat-load of functions.
There’s even a tiny built-in projector that beams out an image of Princess Leia saying the classic line “Help me, Obi-Wan Kanobi, you’re my only hope”. Now that’ is a neat addition.
Unlike the AT-AT, R2 smoothly moves across a variety of surfaces and while the range of the remote is just a tad short – we’d say 5 meters at a push – it’s responsive and fun to use.
Our main issue is the sheer number of batteries required to bring the droid to life. Six go into R2-D2, while the remote requires a further two. That’s eight in total, so better make sure you’re all stocked up if this is little Timmy’s main present come Christmas morning.
