I really like all the tools and gadgets the LEGO designers packed into R2-D2! They did a good job capturing this feature of the little-robot-with-a-tool-for-everything! I just wish it would be motorized! What do you think? How do you like the Star Wars Ultimate version of R2-D2? Let me know in the comment section below! 😉

    O my gosh!!! This is AWESOME! I can’t wait until this comes out!
    (P.S. Like you said, ”Should have been motorized.”)

    • admin March 19, 2012, 2:03 PM

      Ashton, maybe those two designers just couldn’t take each other any more and didn’t have the patience to add a motor! (If you watched the video you know what I mean.) 😀

    i am totally getting this set

  • Tobymacboy March 19, 2012, 5:00 PM

    Wow , simply amazing! But too expensive! And knowing you , you could probably motorize it! If I had an NXT , and this , I would totally make it work just like the film!!!!!!!

    Where are the rockets that come out the side of his legs? Or the periscope out the top? Or the compartment that houses Luke’s lightsaber? Or his little tazer or grippling claw-hand thing?

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice design, but functionally if they made it a little bigger I think, there’s a lot more “Ultimate” that could go into this. With that you could easily make the set $250 and it feel like it was a steal IMO.

    • admin March 19, 2012, 8:36 PM

      YTjedi, very good points! The rockets and periscope missing is a big omission! I agree that a bit more functionality and detail would make this a real WOW set. Right now it is not bad, but it could be better. 🙂

    I got to see the model from this video up close at the Bricks by the Bay Convention this past weekend and it is sweet! The LEGO rep reinforced the idea that they couldn’t put in all the functionality seen in the movies, but they did the ones they could. Will and I don’t buy Star Wars, but we’ll probably buy this. Just wish we had the big Yoda to go with it.

    Also at the convention, there was a fan who had created a Mindstorm version of R2D2. I didn’t get a chance to see it in action, but I did get to see it compared to the official version. I’m sorry that I didn’t get a picture of it, but I’m hoping someone else did and posts it on flickr so I can use it in my upcoming blog on Bricks by the Bay

      Sarah, welcome back! Sounds like you had a good time at BBTB! Looking forward to your reports! 😀

      • Sarah March 20, 2012, 10:08 PM

        Yep, had a blast! I’m looking forward to writing up my experiences. Not sure if it will fit into one blog, but we’ll see. I have a lot of things to say. 😀

    AWESOME SET WARNING! AWESOME SET WARNING! I am totally getting this!
    (P.S., I have an NXT!)

  • JAY NINJA OF LIGHTNING April 5, 2012, 6:33 PM

    that is so cool(r2)

  • 12dw1 April 11, 2012, 3:48 AM

    This set looks cool and the way the third leg comes out is awesome but I agree with YTjedi about the rockets or that they could build it round a basic nxt to make it move =)

  • Lego Star Wars Beta May 18, 2012, 6:41 PM

    I thought tis would be a little bit bigger,but who cares.Is this motorized and does it make sounds?

    • admin May 18, 2012, 7:33 PM

      R2-D2 is not motorized, not does it make any sounds. A shame in my opinion. But LEGO-fans are a creative bunch, and I have already seen several light-up versions. 😉
