Not everyone is a fan of Star Wars but most people will recognise the droid from the movie R2-D2. There is already an R2-D2 minifigure that comes with some of the Star Wars LEGO sets.
LEGO has been releasing a series of sets aimed at adult Star Wars fans with deeper pockets. The sets are released under the series called UCS or Ultimate Collector Series. They feature a much larger completed build and also higher piece counts leading to more detailed models.
After releasing a series of different ships from the movie, the LEGO group has finally broken away and introduced the R2-D2 10225 set under the UCS series.
What you get is a R2-D2 droid which measures approximately 31cm or 12 inches high. It sure looks stunning and makes a great display piece. The UCS sets come with a small name plate to display with the completed model and in this set an R2-D2 minifigure too.
The third leg of R2-D2 is retractable and the head can be rotated. There are also two panels that open at the side of the droid to reveal the a circular saw and interface arm just like the movies.
The Star Wars R2-D2 10225 Ultimate Collector Series is a set that takes up less space than the many other Star Wars UCS ships to display. To top it off, it is also more playable with moving parts. It’s a set that many would add to their Star Wars collection.
