OFFICIAL RELEASE!! LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 75308

Hey guys! We already got a little teaser of the LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 75308 set when LEGO officially announced the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid 75306. It was in the product video making a small appearance, showing only the top of R2-D2. You can revisit that post HERE.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Today, the LEGO Group revealed a new product for the ultimate Star Wars fan collection: the LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 construction set, launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm.

The galaxy’s most lovable droid can now be recreated in stunning detail with this 2,314 piece set, the most feature-packed LEGO brick version of R2-D2 from the LEGO Group to date. Adult LEGO builders and Star Wars fans alike can recreate their favourite moments from the films as they craft R2-D2’s unique retractable mid-leg, rotating head and a periscope. The model also has hidden tools tucked away, such as a lightsaber hilt hidden in a secret compartment in the head.

This set is perfect for any hero looking for a fun and immersive building experience. When finished, the R2-D2 replica makes an impressive focal point when displayed with the set’s minifigure version of the iconic droid and a special Lucasfilm 50th anniversary LEGO brick.

promobricks.de explains the functionality of the set: “The buildable R2-D2 model can come up with a lot of functions. Just like in the movie, R2 has a third leg that can be extended or retracted as needed. There is also a periscope in the rotating head of the droid. In addition, there are four flaps in R2’s stomach. If you open this, different tools come to light. A special feature is a replica of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber that can be hidden in the head of R2-D2 – just like in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi !”
