R5-F7 is mainly white, having legs of that colour and his base body and head as well. He has the same shape head as R5-D8 and R5-J2. His body markings are similar to R5-D8's, but with yellow printing instead of red.
R5-F7 served as Lieutenant Lepira's (Gold Four)'s R5-series astromech droid on his Y-wing starfighter during the Battle of Yavin, where he was destroyed along with the ship and Lepira.
- Although this droid is released in the set "Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter", R5-F7 is actually Gold Four's astromech droid.
- This droid is one of the three first droids to have an R5-series head.
- This droid is the first (and to date only) Astromech Droid Minifigure to feature yellow printing.
- In the January 2012 LEGO Catalogue, R5-F7 is incorrectly labelled as R2-A3 in the description of "Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter" (R2-A3 being a red astromech droid owned by Wedge Antilles).
