R5-X2 was an astromech droid from the R5-series. He belonged to Jabba Desilijic Tiure around 32 BBY, and was used to calculate betting odds at podraces.

Biography[]

Before the Boonta podrace, he estimated that Sebulba would win, Gasgano would come in second and Mawhonic would be third. R5-X2 also favored the young slave Anakin Skywalker. Unfortunately, though Gasgano did finish second, Sebulba and Mawhonic both crashed, so Jabba only ended up winning a third of R5's bet.

Behind the scenes[]

In 2009, via Star Wars Insider 107, Hasbro announced that as part of the Return of the Jedi Build-A-Droid wave they would be releasing the droid: "R5-H6, seen with Gardulla the Hutt in The Phantom Menace". That particular droid however, had already been released under the name "R5-X2". The droid that was subsequently released as part of the 2009 wave was in fact R5-C7, a droid seen on Coruscant during Attack of the Clones.
