He's the little droid that could. The one who always saves the day. And from the looks of the new Collection 1 action figure from Revenge of the Sith, R2-D2 (#07) does it again, this time with his patented Droid Attack! action feature. Only he doesn't really attack. He more like grabs, with a detachable arm, some salvage which may or may not contain SPOILERS.
R2 also comes with some detachable rocket action and what looks to be a platform or ramp from a ship. Insert the grappling arm on top of his head then push down on his middle leg to make R2 motion the arm forward. While R2 can't stand upright due to his retracting middle leg with a spring mechanism, his center foot is articulated so that you can lean him back in his classic rolling stance. And no, the head doesn't click when you turn it.
We warn you again of potential SPOILERS in the included salvage piece and the cardback bio.
