This isn't the first time we have seen the world's most recognizable droid, Star Wars' R2-D2, in LEGO form thanks to a few inspired custom builds, but isn't it about time that he got his own official LEGO set? The R2-D2 presented here will be the latest addition to the LEGO Ultimate Collector's Series when it hits the stores in May 2012, where it will join other stars from the Star Wars saga, including the enormous Millennium Falcon, an Imperial Shuttle, and two giant-sized Death Stars. Both Star Wars and LEGO fans alike will have a hard time passing this one up: R2-D2 is a 1-foot tall, fully articulating model, complete with a rotating head, a retractable third leg, a functioning front panel that reveals his computer interface, and his circular saw -- all made with fantastic detailing using 2,127 LEGO pieces. The set also comes with a plaque and an R2-D2 mini-figure perfect for display. Make sure to check out additional looks after the jump and check out the official video released with the product announcement featuring the model's two designers describing the piece and taking a few jabs at each other. You will be able to pick this up only at and LEGO Stores. via: Brothers Brick
