Astromech Droids are minifigure robots.
Astromech Droids are a line of droids designed for many purposes, mostly for ship maintenance and piloting. Astromech droids are considered a type of LEGO Minifigure, although they share none of the pieces used in conventional LEGO Minifigures. There are many different classes of astromech droids, and the first present in a LEGO set was R7-D4.
All Astromech Droids (except for R1-G4, R5-D4, R5-D8, R5-F7, R5-J2,R7-D4 and T7-O1) share the same body pieces as R2-D2, although they are, in most cases, colored differently. In 2008, R2-D2's initial design was changed, along with some others. Due to the large number of astromech droids, they often have mistakes on the body detailing.
