The other day, my oldest son was asking about all the droids in the Star Wars Universe. He’s been flipping through the toy catalogs and pointing out all the variations of R2-D2, and thinks it’s pretty cool that they all have different colors and jobs. Diamond Select Toys is bringing one of those droids to the San Diego Comic-Con, in the form of an exclusive vinyl bank.
This year’s Comic-Con International exclusive Star Wars bank is R2-B1, one of the astromech droids assigned to the Royal Shuttle of Naboo, and tragically lost while making repairs during a battle. The 10-inch vinyl bank has a coin slot on the back for inserting change and an access door on the bottom. Sculpted in 1:4 scale, R2-B1 is in scale to DST’s Yoda bank, Jawa bank, and all of their Ultimate Quarter Scale action figures.
R2-B1 will be available at the DST booth (#2607) for $23.00. It’s a limited edition piece (only 1,500) so line up early to get this and many of the other exclusives from Diamond Select Toys.
