The only Star Wars we're getting so far at this year's Comic-Con is Star Wars Rebels, but have no fear! You can get your Star Wars fill through exclusive collectibles released for SDCC 2014, and Gentle Giant has just revealed another for fans!
This R2-KT Maquette exclusive is cold cast in high quality polystone and hand painted. Each limited edition maquette comes individually numbered and includes a matching certificate of authenticity.
Fans will remember that R2-KT was created by Albin Johnson, founder of the 501st Legion, master droid builder Jerry Greene and the R2 Builders Club, for Johnson’s daughter Katie (the ‘KT’ in the droid’s name is a tribute to her). In real life, R2-KT makes appearances at children's hospitals, Star Wars Celebration and charity events in the southeastern United States. In the Star Wars universe, the character had a cameo in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film, and has been made an official part of the universe’s canon.
In even better news, $10 from each R2-KT Maquette sold will go to the San Diego Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation! Click here for more information and to pre-order your R2-KT now!
