Star Wars R2-D2 Night Projector - New Import, In Stock

In the Return of the Jedi movie, C-3PO and R2-D2 gain entrance into Jabba's lair and are given an audience with the massive gangster. During their meeting, R2-D2 beams a message from Luke Skywalker where the fledgling Jedi requests a sit-down to bargain for Han Solo's hide.

Banpresto's R2-D2 Night Projector is sort of light that. Instead of projecting a 3D holographic movie however, the projector lights up the room with images of a partially completed Death Star, an X-Wing Fighter, and the Millennium Falcon against a backdrop of stars.

Two variants are in stock today: an R2-D2 model (blue and white) and a R2-M5 version (red and white). Each droid projector measures 15cm or 6" tall and runs on two AAA batteries which are not included. The struts which serve as the legs are movable and the dome flips open easily for projecting purposes. Preorders and new orders will ship today. «Photo gallery»
