This bag came a the bonus for spending a certain amount in May 2017 at the Lego store. It includes 70 pieces and it in the same scale as the other Star Wars sets that build characters rather than vehicles. It comes with the simple folded paper of instructions typical of the polybag sets.
R2-D2 stands about 3 inches high, 2.5 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The head can rotate a full 360 degrees. The two side legs are articulated at the shoulders and ankles and the middle leg is articulated at the ankle. The model has a good mix of white and blue that matches the movie character. The print on the dome and on the front piece match the movie character closely and look great.
R2-D2 is one of the most beloved Star Wars characters, and one of only two characters that have been in all the movies (the other being C3PO of course). I think this model is a fun addition to our Star Wars Lego collection and will probably be one of the few sets that won’t get broken down for pieces.
