R2-Q5 is a repainted Yoda. Ok, he is a repainted R2-D2, but that's no shocker. My first R2-D2's spinner stopped working, so I decided to pop him open, and see what made him tick, or spin. So I did that, and I am still not sure exactly why he wouldn't spin, but I did fix up the springs and get him to spin about 80% of the time. I pasted over the old number strip that R2 had inside, and put a strip of all the Attacktix Classes. So on a balanced team, you may get a move almost every turn. But I rarely play a team that has one of each class, so I left his value at 20. Just for fun, I cut away the two pieces of plastic that held the legs in place, leaving them only attached at the shoulder. This R2-Q5 can now spin at the shoulder, but it does little for his defense. I was hoping it would help absorb some of the blow, but it still goes down like R2-D2.
