LEGO has just revealed this awesome LEGO Ultimate Collector Series R2-D2 and it looks like a dream come true for Star Wars and LEGO fans. That’s right. Very soon you will be able to buy a kit and make your very own R2-D2. And it is nicely designed.
This awesome set consists of over 2,100 LEGO pieces and the little astromech droid even has a rotating head, a retractable third leg and tools. When fully-assembled, R2 measures in at over 12″ tall and 7″ wide. Oh, and he even comes with his own commemorative plaque and an R2 minifig.
The LEGO R2-D2 set will cost you around $179.99(USD) when it goes on sale this May at shop.lego.com and at LEGO stores. Recorded hologram of Princess Leia not included. Not sure if it comes with a restraining bolt or not. Nerd dreams really do come true.
