DeAgostini 1/2 scale working R2-D2

Post by cantina_patron on Fri Jan 06, 2017 9:36 pm

I don't know whether this is a UK / European exclussive, but has anyone here seen this, or planning to build it?
It's not cheap, but I'm tempted!

Looks very cool. I remember seeing all the full size droids @ C6 and wanting to build one then.

It seems to be available in a lot of countries including Canada. This looks to be a 25 month commitment though & 25 x $65 = $1625 . Ouch.

I seen an advert on the TV last week, looks very cool but those weekly/monthly things usually work out expensive,
There's a Back to the Future car out as well What a Face

I saw that on TV here too the other day along with the DeLorean. Seems nice but the final price is a bit crazy!

I suppose the final price is decent if its actually quite high quality, I'm sure the full scale builders spend thousands and have to make a lot more by hand.

I'd have to see a finished model in operation before committing to that and even then, waiting that many months for all the parts seems a bit much.

I'd rather have it absolutely dominate my life as an obsession for a shorter amount of time lol then get to play with it / bask in its hedonistic glory yay

It does look to be good quality with some nice features.
