Sideshow Announces Star Wars Convention Exclusive R2D2 Prototype Sixth Scale Figure


The Force Awakens is upon us, and Sideshow Collectibles will be introducing an exclusive version of their R2D2 Sixth Scale Figure at the Toy Soul 2015 next weekend. In 2016, fans will have a chance to purchase this collectible figure throughout several United States Conventions.

In celebration of the eagerly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th, Sideshow is announcing a special convention exclusive, the R2-D2 ‘Unpainted Prototype’ Sixth Scale Figure.
