The Saga Collection : R2-D2

Here's a sneak peek at 2006!

As the end of the battle on Hoth draws near, R2-D2 accompanies Luke Skywalker in his X-wing as he flees the remains of Echo Base. R2-D2 is a reluctant companion as the two travel to the Dagobah system. Includes electronic lights and sounds, plus random accessories to spread around the base.

Vintage Quality Control Sample
Posted by Dustin on November 25, 2004 |

Here is a nice quality control sample from within the halls of Kenner where each piece was carefully inspected before mass production started. I got this piece from Chris Fawcett, established freelance writer for the Star Wars Insider, owner of 12back.com, founder of OSWCC, and all around cool guy ;-)

The Empire Strikes Back R2-D2 Puffs Tissue Box
Posted by Dustin on November 25, 2004 |

Ok this box of tissues might be pushing it as far as R2-D2 collectibles go, but my good buddy Dan Flarida grabbed it for me at a public auction. This box is from The Empire Strikes Back era and heavily features Yoda but as you can see, our faithful companion R2-D2 is trying to see what all the fuss is about by peeping in through the window of Yoda's Dagobah abode.

Vintage R2-D2 Sensorscope Loose
Posted by Dustin on November 7, 2004 |

Today we're adding shots of the vintage R2-D2 with Sensorscope. Loose R2-D2 figures in really good shape are kind of hard to come by due to the paper sticker that wraps around his torso. The sticker is usually gunked up, torn or dirty from lots of wear and tear fighting the evil empire by 5-10 year olds back in the 1980's!

Vintage Burger King Glass
Posted by Dustin on October 8, 2004 |

I simply love all the Star Wars glasses that were offered by Burger King for the original trilogy. I'd love to see them return but I have a feeling that in this day and age, all we would get is plastic cups. I really do enjoy this cool piece though as it features R2-D2 with some golden droid that won't stop following him around.
