LEGO R2-D2 for May the Fourth

This is the droid building set LEGO Star Wars fans are looking for.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm, LEGO is introducing a new large-scale R2-D2 for May the Fourth AKA Star Wars Day.

Commenting on the new set, Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, creative lead of LEGO Star Wars at the LEGO Group, said: “We have had the pleasure of creating hundreds of Star Wars-inspired models over the past two decades since we first launched LEGO Star Wars sets.

“As Lucasfilm celebrates its 50th anniversary, it seemed fitting to challenge ourselves and push the limits of what is possible with LEGO bricks by recreating a fan-favourite Star Wars character in great detail like we have never achieved before. We are delighted with the result and hope our fans get as much joy out of building the sets as we did designing it.”

R2-D2 is available exclusively from LEGO AU, UK and US (affiliate links) on 1st May. Fans purchasing orders over £85 will receive a free Tattoine Homestead Micro Build.
