How about the 1997 bronze r2 keychain,
the lego r2 from anakins y wing
the r2 from when the clone wars came out in first day foil packaging...

EDIT: How about the new remote control r2 at target or the other smaller remote control astromechs

Meeotch, that's just terrible. The detailing was all wrong. ;)

But no, seriously, you shouldn't post that in the forum man.

I wasn't really expecting to win. Like someone said earlier, I bet you spend hours each night to make sure you know every R2-D2 item! XD

I thought it was kind of dumb he didn't just use a chipped X-box with an emulator instead of cramming in all of those, and it would look a lot better wireless.

This is supposed to be the seller's etsy page, but it just says it's coming soon. I would totally rock this hoody.

In that case, a PC with emu software would've been even better.

New Gentle Giant R2 statue. Spring 2010. Looks pretty sweet, because the arms and little bits are removable.
