R1-G4 was an R1-series astromech droid produced by Industrial Automaton prior to the Battle of Yavin.


R1-G4 was an old-model astromech droid, whose owner was captured by an unknown group on Tatooine, possibly the sand people. The droid was abandoned on planet Tatooine, but later recovered by Jawas in Chief Nebit's tribe, who stowed R1-G4 aboard their sandcrawler, after incapacitating it. There it was rebuilt, to be sold to Tatooine colonists. R1-G4 was part of the line-up assembled at the Lars homestead as a prospective purchase for Owen Lars. Lars eventually chose C-3PO and R2-D2, and the Desert Sands sandtrooper unit destroyed the sandcrawler while searching for those very droids.

R1's cold box contained stolen transponder data.[1]
