Joining two of the biggest names in geekdom — LEGO and Star Wars, is always a delight for the geeks. And with that said, the Official LEGO R2-D2 will definitely be a seller like the other Star Wars Lego kits already available.
Artoo (R2-D2) is my favorite Star Wars character next to Princess Leia. This may not be the first LEGO R2-D2 but this one is something even the kids could build. The size is smaller and it’s part of the Ultimate Collector’s Series by LEGO.
Designed by Kurt Kristensen and Mike Fuller, the Official LEGO R2-D2 stands 30CM tall and features a retractable third leg. Set will be released in May with a $180 price tag.
