LEGO has teamed up with Star Wars to bring back one of its best-sellers — R2-D2. This time, however, the figure is being re-issued as an exclusive 50th-anniversary model.

The 2021 iteration of this R2-D2 model remains faithful to the design of previously released versions of the LEGO figure, but it comes with some distinctive details that make it special. This figure boasts a retractable mid-leg, rotating head and an extendable front hatch. Additionally, Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber is hidden in one compartment around the head.

There are a total of 2,315 LEGO pieces in this set, complete with a host of collectible components like a display stand that labels this figure as an exclusive Lucasfilm 50th-anniversary model.

LEGO and Star Wars’ 50th-Anniversary R2-D2 Droid figure will be available on May 1 on LEGO’s website for $200 USD.

In case you missed it, you can now build your own Imperial Probe Droid LEGO.
