Tired of building your own unofficial LEGO R2-D2's? That's a first-world problem if I've ever heard of one. But LEGO is dropping a 2,100-piece astromech droid in May anyways as part of their Ultimate Collector Series. He stands just short of a foot tall, will cost around $250, and I will eat some of the pieces. "Some?" Most of.
Hit the jump for a video of some of the LEGO designers talking about the model. Man, I wanna be a LEGO designer.
Coming Soon: A Lego R2-D2 Set! [wired]
Thanks to lee, Tanya and Pais, who have every intention of buying the set despite not being 'Ultimate' collectors.
