Behind the scenes
An identical droid, R4-D6, can be seen in the Yavin hangar, in the distant background as Luke Skywalker confronts Han Solo about his decision to leave the rebels without his assistance.
R4-I9 was made as an action figure by Hasbro in 2003. However, it was black instead of dark blue. In addition to this, an R4-D6 figure was made available from Hasbro in 2008 as a build-a-droid figure, where individual parts were packed in with various figures which, when could be assembled to create the droid. This time around, the droid was painted the proper color.
