R2-D2 Statue Armed With All of the Tools an Astromech Needs
December 15th, 2009
Ah Artoo. Fixer of robots and ships, hacker of computers, opener of doors, bleeper of bloops, carrier of Death Star schematics, witness to the Skywalker legacy. If there’s one word that I associate with that lovable astromech droid, it’s “useful”. He’s deus ex machina on three legs. He really deserves to have a highly detailed statue with all his thingamabobs included.
This hand-painted 1:6 scale representation of R2-D2 comes with 8 accessories, including a periscope scanner, mechanical gripper, and utility saw. As you can see you can stick them on Artoo’s head or on his chest. You can pre-order the limited edition R2-D2 statue at the Star Wars Shop for $149 (USD). Unfortunately Artoo won’t make it in time for Christmas; orders won’t be shipped until June next year.
