Astromech Droid R2-L3 was a build-a-droid figure and was released during the The Legacy Collection's wave 5 which consisted of figures based on the original Star Wars movie. R2-L3 could briefly be glimpsed in Attack Of The Clones' Anakin and Padme arrival seen on Tatooine. The astromech droid has the typical 5 joints (dome, 2 legs, 2 ankles) and a pretty funky paint application with lots of black and dark blue accents.
There are no dirt marks on the droid, and there is no clicking sound when you turn the dome because the middle leg is only static and doesn't move into the droid's body. In order to have R2-L3 stand on two legs you will need to unplugg the middle leg. All three legs have little rolls in them, so you can move R2-L3 around. There were no weapons or accessories included with the figure.
All things considered, this is a cool, funky looking astromech droid, and if you own any of the other astromechs which Hasbro has released, you pretty much know what you are getting here.
There was no packaging text for R2-L3. The figure was a BAD (build-a-droid) figure and could only be obtained when figures with all the individual parts were purchased and then assembled.
