Little R2-D2 such a feisty little droid packed into such a small package. But really, could a under trained moisture farmer thrown into the middle of the Rebel Alliance ask for a better companion to aid him in his quest? Without R2-D2, Luke would never meet Obi-Wan. Where would he be then? Living out a boring existence on Tatooine? Yawn.
LEGO tends to to be awesome in general, but a large LEGO R2D2, complete with motorized movements? That’s just plain LEGO inspired win. And so cool!
