Let me start by saying thank you for taking the time to view this post and give me a little more info on what I've purchased. I'm new to this forum and not a Star Wars expert, so any help is appreciated. I have tried to do some research on 1997 Lucas R2D2 Figures, but I can't seem to find one with the "screen" like this on the front.
Anyways, I was at the thrift store where you pay by weight and found this R2D2 Figure. All I saw was that the leg said "1997 Lucas. Made in China." (It is hard to see in the photo, but that's what it says on the inside of the leg).
Knowing that Lucas is a big name in Star Wars stuff, I picked it up. It also has a little screen on the front of it as you can see in pictures. It has no working batteries, but when I took the old ones out it looks like it takes 2 GPA76 Alkaline Cell batteries.
I would estimate that it is about 3 inches tall.
Thanks again for your time, and here are some pictures.
