Remember that kid who lived down the street from you who owned like every Star Wars action figure in existence? He even had one of those cool Grandmothers who knew everything about Star Wars and bought him that giant AT-AT for his birthday. When you went over to his house he would force you to play with Greedo and forbid you from touching any of his other toys. Meanwhile you had to search for leftover change in vending machines just to scrape up enough action figure money to buy the slave girl version of Leia and Boba Fett. If you’re anything like us the whole experience left you mentally scarred for years… causing you to lust after every Star Wars goodie available and have recurring fantasies of your girlfriend in a bikini chained to a huge green slug. Sad.
Now that you have money and a real job you can show up that damn Star Wars action figure hoarding brat. This R/C R2-D2 Action Figure is like a Star Wars fanboy’s wet dream come true. The size of a regular action figure, this tiny droid is fully controllable from the included lightsaber remote. Authentic R2-D2 sounds, turning head and red LED eye complete the package. No more playing with your old skool Star Wars figures by shaking them and talking in a funny voice, this is the real deal… and we don’t kid when it comes to Star Wars. We would have killed for this little R2 gem as a kid and it’s still pretty damn cool as an adult.
