Star Wars LO-LA59 Animatronic Edition Review
Now you can have your own droid just like Princess Leia with the Star Wars LO-LA59 Animatronic Edition. Based on the droid from the Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action series on Disney+, this toy’s screen-authentic design and deco really brings the droid character to life. Touch the sensor on LO-LA59’s head to activate more than 45 light, sound, and movement combinations through three modes of play. The toy also responds to noise.
Attach LO-LA59’s legs to enter Companion Mode, attach the stand for Hover Mode, or hold her and pretend to zoom her through the galaxy for On the Go Mode. (It was a little tricky switching out the two bases.) You’ll get a lot of fun reactions in each mode, however, in Companion and Hover modes, LO-LA59 opens and closes her mouth, moves the panels on top of her head, and tilts her head from side to side.
Four AA batteries are required but not included. The toy shuts itself off after a period of inactivity.
Should I get it?
Fans are really going to like the realistic movements and sound effects from this toy droid. While it will inspire a lot of play for younger fans, the legs and stand offer a nice way for older fans to display LO-LA59.
