Bring Home Your Own Star Wars R2D2 Astromech Droid


Celebrate Star Wars 30th Anniversary by inviting this movie-accurate voice command droid into your life. Once the loyal companion to Queen Amdala, r2d2 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 4 "AA" batteries and four "D" cell batteries in his side.

More than 15-inches tall, Interactive r2d2's 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 R2D2s 3 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 R2D2 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, the Starwars Interactive R2D2 responds to more complicated voice 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 exact movements. Tell him to turn left or right or to move forward whenever you want, or set a pre-programmed course for him to follow.


While the Hasbro Interactive R2D2 Astromech Droid responded well to simple commands with out any problems, we had difficulty getting him to reliably respond to some of the more complex voice commands we gave him. 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 (and useful) comrade.

Bought this for my eight year old son who is really into star wars. He really likes this R2D2. He really enjoys playing with it but does have a little trouble getting R2D2 to understand what his commands are. You must speak clearly and slowly for him to understand what you want him to do but overall he is very happy with his R2D2 robot.
A Must For Fans!

This was a gift for my son. He was thrilled but maybe a little too young (6). You need to be clear with the commands and things need to be said a certain way. We have been working on that with our son so he can command the R2 unit properly. He absoluty loves it and I would buy it again for him. The R2 can be tempermental so getting him to do things can also be challenging.
Great toy for kids and star wars fans

We gave this as a Christmas present to our 7 year-old son who's a big Star Wars fan and he was able to set it up himself. It is sometimes stubborn like the real R2D2 and doesn't obey your command which makes it more interesting for him. My son and 6 year-old daughter loves the "light tag" function where it plays hide and seek with them. It even plays a secret message from Princess Lea! We bought rechargeable D and AA batteries for it as well - the "Tenergy" brand was a good deal for it.

I bought this for my 8 year old son for Christmas. It is a really cool toy. R2D2 listens to voice commands, he plays hide-and seek, and even dances. R2D2 will even go on patrol, and alert you if someone enters the room. We have had R2 for almost a year now, and my son still enjoys him. I would recommend this toy for Star Wars fans or robot fans, he is awesome.
Just like a real R2-D2!!!

My kids really enjoy playing with their R2-D2 robot! It has lots of voice commands, plus there are some secret ones they don't tell you about in the book! R2 moves very well on wood floors or carpet. The quality seems very good as R2 is well built and we've had no problems after over a year of ownership. Owning this made my son very interested in robots as a career.
Not so Bad

Good toy for those who have patience.It's fun but he is a bit stubborn. He is a good toy when you have friends over.

R2 is a hit in our house! This little fellow is non-stop fun. Our son loves playing with him more than playing with the dog (R2 is much more obedient). Getting around the house is generally pretty easy for R2. He can almost always get himself out of a jam. His voice command capability works well and his sensor capability and programming are excellent for a robot at this price point. While the range of commands are limited, R2 does everything he's been programmed to do with excellence and even surprises you from time to time. We have had no problems at all with him. There is no better buy in a robot at this price point. R2 has become a permanent part of our family. Now we're waiting for C3PO!
