View Full Version : What R2-D2?

I bought an r2 for my starfighter, but it doesnt fit because the center leg doesnt retract.
so what r2 has a retracable center leg that would fit?

Most of them. But very few fit well, if at all, so you might just be better off using the one that came with the ship.

The Hoth Artoo from the TSC line has a removable third leg, try that one.

If we're talking about the Ep 3 Jedi Starfighter, there is no R2 figure that will fit in the droid slot correctly. The design didn't take into consideration where the feet are supposed to go, the only way to get R2 into the slot correctly is to cut off his feet completely (I've done this, it works but you ruin an R2). And even then, there's a design flaw so the slot is slightly too narrow and will mash up against any sculpted detail on the droid body that's not flush.

They shouldn't have even bothered if they weren't going to do it right, just leave the droid slot unusable a la the Y-wing.

Don't those ships come with the top of a droid already in the slot?

Yeah, but they look pretty bad. Especially since, after the first few, they changed the size of the stickers for the droids' front and back to make it bigger, and now they don't fit very well at all.

the one i found to fit the best is the potf2 r2d2 that came with the holographic leia around the time when episode 1 was coming out so it had those.... slider picture things. it had a droid controller thing on him but it could be cut or shaved off. poor r2.

That's a pretty rare figure to mangle up just for this.
