This Is Possibly the Lego Droid You Were Looking For


Lego’s next massive Star Wars kit? An impressively large R2-D2, as shown off in this shockingly unexciting Lego promo video starring the kit’s two designers. Still, if you watch it, you’ll get to see Artoo’s features, if only to give you a better idea if he’s worth the suggested retail price of $180. Personally, if I’m going to spend that much, I think I’d rather double it and get the Lego Star Destroyer, but you may feel differently. Now, if Artoo had his booze dispenser from Jabba’s sail barge, I might feel differently, but then booze always makes me feel differently. That’s why I drink it. (Via Geeks Are Sexy)
