1978 Vintage Kenner Star Wars 8" R2d2 Remote Controlled Robot (black Wheels) For Sale
You are viewing a Vintage 1978 R2D2 Battery Operated /Remote Controlled Toy from Star Wars from Kenner (General Mills) made in Hong Kong. The Most popular character from early Star Wars Saga was the lovable little Robot R2. This item comes nestled in the styrofoam and is accompanied by the directions sheet & warranty sheet, hand control & antenna. This R2Da Figurine is in pretty good shape although the plastic has slightly yellowed in places. The styrofoam is soiled a bit. The outside box is torn and in fairly rough shape, but at least it's there. The R2D2 pieces and parts are all present. There are rub-off marks on the silver part of his dome.The Battery contacts are lightly corroded but I easily placed batteries in it and ran it to test it. Black hand control: On the wired (9v battery) contact, the tiny plastic case that surrounds the wires has been taped closed. OPERATING R2D2: When you load batteries (2--9V & 2C Batteries are needed) the red light comes on (his dome head) and he makes 2 types of beep-beep noises. The Robot Body walks/turns to the left and right. When you try to get it to go forward & backward it travels in circles. The head is supposed to turn on it's own and it doesn't. You can easily turn the head clockwise with your hand and it clicks so maybe the contacts inside need cleaning? I do not know. I don't think it needs anything but some minor adjustments. Perhaps the right wheels are off the spindle inside?? All in all, he's in good condition but i am selling him AS IS! I have represented him truthfully but Please look at ALL the pictures and you will know exactly what you are offerding on. I have many more pics too.
