General description:
This is a game breaking peice. The fact that he is an overide peice is huge! but what makes this R2-D2 better than the rebel one? Tow Cable. Those of you who played heroclix know all to well the power of taxies.

Uses:
The ablity to carry a triple attack character 12 squares and still triple attack is crazy! Locking doors and opening them at range is key too. Dont forget that he can damage droids also.

Strategies and game play:
One strategy would be to use r2 to fly up say mace and let him triple attack a character and then fly into a room and lock the door till time runs out.

Combos with other miniatures:
He works great with Boba Fett. lets boba move 12 and double attack and then if someone gets close, fly away 12 and hit them 2 more times.

Ways to counteract it:
Jawas, acurate shooters, and Lobot to bypass that override.

Strengths/Pros:
Low cost, nice defense, Tow Cable, override, and flight

Weaknesses/Cons:
no attack, no good on it's own, unique

Artwork and aesthetics:
Nice looking mini

Overall rating:
10 if just cause it is the only taxi in the game.
