LEGO and Star Wars fans start saving up for the ultimate gift to yourself. LEGO just announced the Ultimate Collector Series LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 set, which will be released in May 2012. Set # 10225 comes with 2,127 pieces and once completed, R2-D2 will stand over 12 inches tall with a retractable third leg, feature front panels that open to reveal a universal computer interface arm and circular saw, and have a realistic rotating head.
This loveable Star Wars R2-D2 droid is back and part of the Ultimate Collector Series from LEGO. We’ve seen plenty of cool sets in the past from LEGO, Death Star, Millennium Falcon and Super Star Destroyer, but I think we’ll all agree that there is a special place in our hearts for this R2 unit. Let’s hope we see C-3PO in the near future; I hate the thought of C-3PO being off on his own somewhere.
Presenting the iconic R2-D2 as you’ve never seen him before. Everyone’s favorite droid from the Star Wars galaxy is now part of the Ultimate Collector Series and features fantastic detailing, such as retractable third leg, front panels that open to reveal a universal computer interface arm and a circular saw, rotating head and 2 fold-out front spacecraft linkage control arms. With the included fact plaque and R2-D2 minifigure, this diminutive model is the perfect addition to your LEGO Star Wars collection!
