Thank you to Disney and The Disney Store for providing their Star Wars: The Last Jedi R2-D2 Elite Series Die Cast Figure for review. 

Availability: September 2017



Disney’s Star Wars Star Wars: The Last Jedi R2-D2 is completely made of die-cast. R2-D2 uses the same sculpt as The Force Awakens die cast figure, and also has a similar deco with the wash to make it look dirty over the white. The detail on the wash is in different spots on both figures, so it’ll be hard to identity which one came from which movie that way. However, the blue deco on the dome, body, and legs is in a lighter blue metallic, compared to The Force Awakens figure, which is painted in a darker blue. The dome looks to have the same shade of metallic silver deco, with the exception of the dirt spots, is the same on both figures.

The sculpt hasn’t changed, and he keeps all that great detail that was offered last year. With the exception of the lighter blue deco, the body also has the wash over the white, but in different places on each of the two figures. The red light on the bottom of the dome is painted in metallic red, and he keeps the gold wiring on the bottom of his feet. The articulation remains the same, with the swivel dome, swivel legs, swivel ankles, and the ability to store the center leg inside the body.


Included with R2-D2 is a logo figure base. On this particular figure, there is no peg hole on the leg, so there is no where to insert the peg into from the base. Aside for display purposes, the base does nothing to aid R2-D2 to stand, but since he doesn’t fall over, there is no use for the base.

Overall, R2-D2 is an excellent figure, and a great additions to the Disney Store die cast figure line.
