In a most surprising and probably unintentional move, LEGO has inadvertently given us our first look at the new LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (75308) set that is coming out later this year.
The promotional video for the LEGO Star Wars Probe Droid (75306) had a quick shot of an brick build R2-D2 sitting below a table.
There has been rumours that there would be another LEGO R2-D2 model that is akin to the Ultimate Collector Series version that was released in 2012.
Thanks to the promotional video released by LEGO, we now have confirmation that it truly exists. We’re still trying to ascertain the piece count but there are reports that it would have a recommended retail price of €199.99.
I’m expecting it to debut, along with other exclusive LEGO Star Wars sets during the May the 4th celebrations this year.
