You can find several characters here and there in different areas where you can interact with them.
Unlock R2-R9 Character
You can find the R2-R9 character in Gungan City which you can unlock by progressing through Episode One: The Phantom Meance. Once you’ve returned from Coruscant after the Gungans have left you can find R2-R9 at the entrance of the city.
Once you talk to R2-R9, he’ll request you to do a task you have to accept the task and complete it in order to unlock the R2-R9 character.
To complete the mission, you have to find the Gungan using the Spatula and when you find him talk to him and deliver the message and the side quest will be over. The R2-R9 will be unlocked and you can buy the character from the characters list under the Astromech Droid tab. You can buy it for 35,000 Studs.
