[List of appearances]

R5-F7 is an astromech droid minifigure released in 2012. He appears in two sets, 9495 Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter and 75023 Star Wars Advent Calendar.

Description[edit]

R5-F7 is mainly white, having legs of that colour and his base body and head as well. He has the same shape head as R5-D8 and R5-J2. His body markings are similar to R5-D8's, but with yellow printing instead of red.

Background[edit]

R5-F7 served as Lieutenant Lepira's (Gold Four)'s R5-series astromech droid on his Y-wing starfighter during the Battle of Yavin, where he was destroyed along with the ship and Lepira. Some scavengers then found his body missing a right leg. they repaired him, sold him to Jawas, and finally resold to Boba Fett and was eventually blown up along with the Slave I.

Appearances[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • Although this droid is released in the set "Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter", R5-F7 is actually Gold Four's astromech droid.
  • This droid is one of the three first droids to have an R5-series head.
  • This droid is the first (and to date only) Astromech Droid Minifigure to feature yellow printing.
  • In the January 2012 LEGO Catalogue, R5-F7 is incorrectly labelled as R2-A3 in the description of "Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter" (R2-A3 being a red astromech droid owned by Wedge Antilles).
