When R2-D2 beeps and boops a message to you, you generally assume that it’s something important. Does he have a secret message from Princess Leia, or know where Luke Skywalker is hiding out? No, R2-D2 just wants to drop some sick memes! Trouble is, all his favorite memes are from ages ago. We got so sick of Artoo trolling us in the Nerdist offices, we decided to give him away to one lucky fan: maybe you!
This summer, we’ve teamed up with our pals at Sideshow Collectibles to give away something truly incredible: a life-size R2-D2! Sideshow’s new collectable Star Wars droid is their most accurate yet. The dome spins to promote different display options, lights up, and beeps screen-accurate boops. There’s a themed remote hidden in a secret compartment (help me, Sideshow Collectibles — you’re our only hope!) and a base that calls back to the deck of the Millennium Falcon. The figure retails at over $6k, so you know it’s legit! The life-size R2-D2 made its debut Sideshow’s Comic-Con booth, and will soon grace some lucky fan’s home with its presence.
