Interactive R2D2 Astromech Droid Product Details
Once the loyal companion to Queen Amdala, this roughly 14" Interactive R2D2 droid is now programmed to be your devoted helper and friend. Grab his attention by saying "Hey, R2!" and he's ready for more than 40 voice commands! Ask him if he remembers his famous friends, like Luke Skywalker, C-3PO or Jabba the Hutt. Each name will stir up a different response depending on Artoo's "feelings" for that character. Just a few of R2D2's amazing attributes include moving along on his own, turning his front beam on and off, and even playing a secret message when you follow the proper voice commands. In "Game" mode, R2D2 plays the hide-and-seek game of Light Tag, dances to cantina music, guards your room with his sentry alarm , or even jazzes up your next party with "Spin The Droid." Once you've mastered R2D2's "companion" and "game" modes, move on to "command" mode for plotting real-time maneuvering or programmed courses for the droid to follow! R2D2 also boasts a secret cargo compartment and a unique swing-down utility arm that's also a beverage holder!
R2D2's Three Interactive Modes
Intergalactic missions will be more fun with a reliable R2D2 droid at your side. In companion mode, R2D2 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.
