The Japanese toy manufacturer Tomy has released an updated transparent plastic version of their popular radio-controlled R2-D2 mini action figure.
With the mini-lightsaber remote, R2-D2 will move forward or turn on command, rotate his dome as he rolls, beep and whistle, and illuminate his photoreceptor “eye”. R2-D2 measures approximately 2.5 inches tall, and includes batteries for the remote and the droid himself.
What makes this one extra special is the transparent plastic of both the figure and the remote control, showing the inner workings…

The new Transparent R/C R2-D2 Action Figure by Tomy is available for $24.99 from the official Start Wars Shop.
