We’ve seen so much awesome R2-D2 inspired products, from Sneakers, Suits, and Backpacks to USB Car Chargers, Coffee Presses, and Trash Cans. Yet nothing quite compares to the real thing, and nothing gets closer to that than this Museum Quality Limited Edition Life-Size R2-D2.
This detailed astromech droid replica stands four feet tall, on a base themed after the Millennium Falcon flooring. It not only looks accurate down to minute details, it has functioning lights to complete the realistic visuals. Plus it has built-in sound effects to play authentic R2-D2 dialog and sound effects.
This is the 4′-tall limited edition R2-D2 replica with the same authentic lights and sounds of his feisty film counterpart. The astromech droid is sculpted and painted in meticulous detail from his swiveling dome top and radar eye to his anterior louvered vents and powerbus cables. Ideal for droid-trading Jawas and Star Wars enthusiasts alike, the model contains a 5-watt speaker that reproduces R2-D2’s most captivating dialogue and LEDs that illuminate the life-sized droid’s logic function display and processor state indicators. A hidden compartment adjacent to the speaker houses a remote. The replica rests on a Millennium Falcon themed base.
This Museum Quality R2-D2 costs $7,500 at Hammacher Schlemmer. It is also available for $7,450 at Sideshow Collectibles, and they offer financing as well.
