LEGO Star Wars is far from being a new thing. We’ve been graced with LEGO Star Wars sets, LEGO Star Wars video games, and even a LEGO Star Wars television special. But, this R2-D2 LEGO set goes above and beyond what we’ve come to expect. This is the closest you’ll ever come to getting your very own R2-D2 in your home. In short, this is the droid you’re looking for.
LEGO R2-D2 is a little over a foot tall, and it’s far more than being just a replica of everyone’s favorite droid, with apologies to C-3PO. R2-D2′s third leg is retractable, and can be positioned, while his front panels open up to reveal the computer uplink arm and circular saw R2-D2 used to save the day pretty much always. And, just for effect, the head rotates, too.
LEGO R2-D2 comes with a fact plaque and a mini-R2-D2 figure. It’s also a collector’s item, and as of now, limited circulation is planned. LEGO R2-D2 is selling now from ToyWiz for about $225, but there are currently only three left in stock. Better get going if you want your very own R2-D2. Personally, I suggest combining him with a Galaxy Beam to make the best projector case imaginable.
