On his Flickr page, Vesa Lehtimäki (aka Avanut) has an incredible gallery of photographs showcasing toys (with a good percentage being Star Wars and Indiana Jones) placed in some incredibly realistic settings. Some of these images really look like photos of the real deal. The above image appears courtesy of Vesa Lehtimäki.
As the rebel troops fled their secret base on Hoth there was no time for pre-flight checks, it was a very fast operation. There is one known incident where an astromech unit had problems with manoeuvering in thick snow and, under heavy crossfire from Imperial ground assault troops, it's designated Y-wing fighter took off without it onboard. It was the last ride off Hoth.
R5-F7 was never recovered, it's whereabouts are unknown.
Oh, how I have missed photographing these!
