I found this figure at WM on Wednesday, was all excited until I opened it and realized it's another crappy action-gimmick-saddled R2 in the style of that Saga flying R2 that everybody hates. To be fair, this R2 is not as bad as that christmas-tree ornament, but it's a lot closer to than than to VOTC or even bar2-D2. The problem with Droid Attack R2 is that he's a gimmick figure, his 3rd leg is permanent AND it sticks out extra long so you can push it in to make the oversized arm sticking out of the top of his dome angle forward slightly. Not only is he sporting a perma-leg, but the outer legs don't even have articulated ankles. The saddest parts are the things they did right like the dome is all-new and done pretty well except for the gimmick hole at the top, and they included leg-jets like those seen in AOTC which can be plugged into the sides of the legs but you still can't angle the ankles or remove the 3rd leg. It's too bad that Hasbro can't get it right, after Flying Brick R2 and Lightsaber of Doom R2, I was hoping they'd move past this sort of thing.
At least the figure comes with a nifty piece of droid parts, and that weird seesaw base which makes no sense yet. Oh, and the arm gimmick turns with the dome, that's kinda neat considering.
