Exclusive Lego R2-D2 Is the Lego Set You Must Get This Year

By Jesus Diaz on at

You should have bought this new Lego R2-D2, from the Ultimate Collector Series, instead of the new iPad. Why? First, because it's amazing. Second, because it's amazing. Third, because it will be sold out very soon. Fourth, because it will cost as much as two new iPads in just a year.

The new set is 2,127 pieces, features an ingenious retractable third late (so you can actually position it like in the movie). The front panels open to show its universal computer interface arm and its circular saw, just like the real one. And the head rotates too.

How big is Lego R2-D2? 12 inches (31 centimeters) tall and seven inches (18 centimeters) wide.
