Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope - R4-D5 Can Bilocate
I that scene where Luke and Uncle Owen buy the astromech droid R4-D5 from the Jawas, look closely at the scene after the droid explodes (this droid's got a bad motivator!). You'll see the EXACT SAME droid bleeping and blooping around in its previous spot, as if nothing happened.
Visual Proof! See the examples below and post your pictures too.

first of all, its R5-D4 not R4-D5, and also some droids look alike, take the very first scene with 3PO and R2, there is another droid that looks almost EXACTLY like 3PO

R5-D4 allowed R2-D2 to sabotage its circuitry so that R2 and C3-P0 could stay together. It was probably just minor that could be fixed in seconds.

dmaul - this has been addressed in Star Wars Insider. "R2 unit" has come to be used as a synonym for "astromech droid" in the Star Wars universe, just as "Q-tip" is used to mean any small cotton swab, or "Xerox" is used synonymously with "photocopier."

Sorry, but it is a mistake. If you watch the scene, there are no other R4-D5's. And besides, you can see Jawas prepping R4-D4, and it's the same shot from earlier before he bit the dust.

Maybe it was the droid's stunt double that blew =)

The real slipup is when Luke says, "this R2 has a bad motivator" when he was referring to the R5 unit. Also, how does the R5-D4 droid makes its way on one of the X-wings at the battle of Yavin. As far as I know, each astromech droid has a unique ID. You may have many R2 units but only one R2-D2.

That's a major slip-up. I've never noticed it in the movie before.
