Barnes and Noble continues to get in on the collectibles market with another exclusive. They’ve been carrying various Kotobukiya products for a while, including the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper 2 pack statues. Now, they are getting a Koto R2-D2 repaint into R2-M5 as an exclusive. Check the details below, pics after the jump!
R2-M5 is a Barnes & Noble exclusive.
R2-M5 was a red R2-series astromech droid produced by Industrial Automaton that served the Royal Naboo Security Forces. It was one of the astromech droids aboard the Queen’s starship as of 32 BBY. When a Trade Federation battleship opened fire on the Naboo Royal Starship, R2-M5 went out, along with R2-N3 and other astromech droids, to fix an imbalance in the starboard engines. Both droids were blasted off the hull.
Standing nearly 4 inches tall in 1/10 scale, R2-M5 can be displayed either upright or inclined on the included magnetic base.
