Bandai has revealed another great model kit in their line of 1/12 scale Star Wars figures. The new kit is R5-J2.
R5-J2 was a masculine-programmed Imperial R5-series astromech droid stationed aboard the second Death Star battlestation in the Endor system in 4 ABY. The cheap astromech droid was present in one of the hangar bays when the Sith Lord Darth Vader arrived to oversee the station’s construction. R5-J2’s service with the Empire was short-lived, however, as the droid perished when the battle station was destroyed by the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Endor.
This model kit includes display base, 6x runner, 1x marking sticker sheet, and instruction manual. Measures about 4-inches tall.
