  • The droid was packed in with the First Order Short-Range Evacuation vehicle
  • There were four differently colored R5 droids available where the front and dome panels were either red, blue, white or orange/yellow
  • Those droids were randomly packaged into the box with the vehicle
  • For this droid Disney used the Build-A-Droid mold which lets you break the droid apart into the dome, two outer legs, one middle leg and the body
  • All three feet have wheels in the bottom so that the droid can be moved around
  • The droid's dome can be rotated 360°
  • There are no removable parts or panels which can be opened on this droid
  • The figure has a small hole in the top of the head so that an accessory could be plugged in (an accessory however was not included here)
  • The paint application on the droid looks outstanding with lots of weathering and dirt on the front, back, bottom and dome
  • The astromech droid stands very securely on display without falling over

R5 Astromech Droid Video Review


Within the First Order Fleet, troops, officers and personnel traverse the interiors of massive ships using small fleet transports. Piloted by First Order R5 astromech droids, these vehicles are programmed with ship schematics and security access codes. In the event of a non-recoverable ship emergency, the fleet transports load into the First Order Short-Range Vehicles (SREV). Once ejected, the SREV use short-range thrusters for maneuvering to refuge, and are colored bright red to assist in locating during search and rescue operations.
