Star Wars fans, the Imperial Astromech R2-Q5 has arrived!

From Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Sideshow is proud to present the new Star Wars Collectible R2-Q5 Imperial Astromech Droid Sixth Scale Figure.

As everyone’s favorite astromech R2-D2 fought alongside his friends for the Rebel Alliance, his lesser known Imperial counterpart R2-Q5 played a critical role in the background as a spy for the Galactic Empire.


Specializing in starship diagnostics and repairs, the sleek black and bronze R2 unit was charged with maintaining the Death Star’s elaborate weapons and security systems, as well as storing the Emperor’s plans against the Rebel Alliance.

Although it takes a careful eye to locate this droid in the film, this R2 unit has nevertheless become a popular astromech among Star Wars collectors.
