Sideshow’s R2-Q5 Imperial Astromech Droid
Sideshow Collectibles has announced an addition to their 1/6th scale Star Wars license. The R2-Q5 Imperial Astromech Droid was apparently from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The R2-Q5 "played a critical role in the background as a spy for the Galactic Empire. Specializing in starship diagnostics and repairs, the sleek black and bronze R2 unit was charged with maintaining the Death Star’s elaborate weapons and security systems, as well as storing the Emperor’s plans against the Rebel Alliance".
The 1/6th scale figure features retractable tripedal treads, hinged panels, and an articulated light-up dome. It's currently available to pre-order from Sideshow for $139.99. Look for it to begin shipping around Q4 of 2016.
