No Listings are available for this product
Modeled after artist Ralph McQuarrie's original concept illustrations for the much loved droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, these figures celebrate the 30-year legacy of the Star Wars saga as well as the creative, guiding vision of McQuarrie, whose drawings helped George Lucas convince studio directors to back the very first Star Wars movie.

McQuarrie's first painting of the droids was one of five pieces of art shown to the Twentieth Century Fox board of directors prior to their approving the initial budget for what was then called "The Star Wars".

Exclusive to this summers Celebration Europe event in London and produced in limited quantities, this product is packaged with a unique Celebration Europe collectors coin, a protective clamshell collectors case and features unique Celebration Europe packaging.

 Arrived in a Jiffy!

These are wonderful figures, at an amazing price. But why on earth do they post them to you in jiffy bags! I purchased two, both of them arrived slightly squashed, if you are a collector, and don't mind the odd crease and dent here and there, then that's fine, but if your expecting mint, it's not going to happen. Contacted PLAY too see if I ordered another one could they package it in a box, the guy said they have no control over what packaging is used at the warehouse. SORT IT OUT PLAY.COM!

 Bubble wrapped bargain

I bought these when they were £1.99 basically because I don't like letting a bargain pass. Unlike others mine was sent in a bubble envelope and arrived in great condition.

R2-D2 is about an inch and a half and C3PO about 2-3". Both with posable parts I think, I'm not taking them out of the box. The box is clear plastic so you can see everything anyway and it is one of them cases you just pull to open (not the dreaded chainsaw required ones) celotaped around the edges. Collector's coin looks like it should be eddible.

I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan in the world but I do have the films and I think these are a great little set, well put togther and nicely packaged to put away with the need to take them out to see what they look like as you do.

Another bargain from Play. I am sure a collector would like these even more.

 Great exclusive at a price that won't make you ralph ;)

I'm not a massive Star Wars fan. But I like exclusive stuff.
I had already bought the McQuarrie Chewbacca (Best face ever)
So £1.99 for this was an offer too good to miss. It even arrived
in a plastic "Celebration Europe" box, over the original card back.
Which is good news for MIB fans.

 Packaging Improved?

Having read the reviews regarding the condition of the packaging on arrival I wasn't sure whether to order these or not.

I decided to gamble as the price is pretty good, considering how much these were priced at the CE show itself.

Happy to report mine turned up this morning, although sent in a jiffy bag, it was packaged in a plastic case (which has Star Wars logos and CE sticker on it) so the item itself is in very good condition.

 Exclusive Collectables!!

As other reviewers have said the packaging used for these collectables is not the best and the items can end up damaged, so we are taking a gamble when we order!!
Thankfully my gamble paid of as i had ordered 2 of these just in case one happened to be damaged and to my joy they both arrived in mint condition!!!
Even more of a bonus was the price which was just £1.99 each! A brilliant collectable that will perhaps be worth a small fortune sometime in the future!!
Nice one Play you came through with this one!!
