1:1 Scale R2-D2 Coming to Your Home Soon
July 17th, 2011
If you’re a big Star Wars fan like me, you might want to start clearing out a corner of your living room (or entry way) for this cool new R2-D2 collectible. Measuring in at just 3 feet-tall, this R2-D2 monument is exactly a 100% scale match with the version of R2 found in The Clone Wars (although he looks a little shorter than the Kenny Baker version from the movies).
The guys at Gentle Giant used digital models from The Clone Wars animated series to create this life-sized droid, sculpting, then painting it for you to enjoy in your home.
R2 isn’t going to be shipping until February 2012, but you can pre-order him over at Entertainment Earth now for the low, low price of $1079.99 (USD). Hopefully for that price he won’t have a bad motivator unit.
