Product in Depth

You will build your own R2-D2 from components engineered to look just like the original Star Wars props – plus state-of-the-art modern electronic components. Taking inspiration from the remote-controlled film prop, your fully functioning half-scale model R2-D2 is engineered in the same way, and has been authentically detailed based on the droid seen on screen.

Once assembled, you can choose whether to retain the factory-fresh finish, or give your astromech a weathered, ‘used’ appearance as in the movies.
When your R2-D2 is complete, you will be able to download the special control app to your smartphone or tablet. Then fit the rechargeable batteries, switch on and connect R2-D2 to your wi-fi network. With his sensors, camera, microphones, sophisticated logic boards and powerful motors, R2-D2 can interact with his owner, move and behave just like the astromech from the Star Wars movies.

Each shipment includes 4 official full color magazines with your easy-to-follow - detailed Assembly Guide plus a fascinating look at the amazing story behind the little astromech and the other droids, machines and vehicles of Star Wars as you follow in the footsteps of the master movie makers.

Key Features of your R2-D2 Astromech Droids

Scale: 1:2

One-piece metal dome: R2-D2’s real metal dome spins just like the original, enabling him to turn to face his owner, look around his environment and point his camera and projector in any direction without moving his body.

Dual mode: You can switch R2-D2 to operate under command or in autonomous ‘AI’ mode, when he will behave like the willful astromech in the movies.

Video/Still Camera: The video/still camera in R2-D2’s head allows him to take snapshots and short video clips, which can be stored on your mobile device. You can turn his head to focus on any person or object in his field of vision, and his programming includes the ability to detect human faces.

Wi-fi enabled: Wi-fi receiver and transmitter, communicating with a tablet or smartphone. 

Communication: via authentic chirps, whistles and colored light displays.

Projector: Just as in the Star Wars movies, R2-D2 is able to display holographic messages using a projector which can beam images of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker onto any nearby flat surface.

Realistic Droid Movement: R2-D2 travels around through powerful drive motors in his feet, which allow him to move forward or backwards or spin on his axis, just like the droid does in the movies. His third leg provides stability, and he has sensors which are programmed to avoid obstacles and stairs.

Remote-control app-enabled: You can control R2-D2 directly from your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. Steer him at will, see what he sees, and activate all his special features – including the pop-up lightsaber!

Pop-up lightsaber: As in Return of the Jedi, R2-D2 has a ‘hidden extra’ – Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, which will pop up on demand from the pneumatic ejection tube in his head.

Rechargeable battery: Inside R2-D2’s chassis is a high-energy battery pack that stores power for his drive motors, robotic mechanisms and internal electronics. He comes with his own charging station which hooks up to his external coupling – and when his energy levels become low, his warning lights will indicate the need to recharge. Battery not included with series.

Status displays: Including malfunction/diagnostic warnings.

Microphone and speaker: R2-D2 is able to react to his human owner’s voice commands. R2-D2 is programmed to respond to trigger words (such as ‘good morning’ or ‘wake up’) and he understands a number of simple voice commands that control his key functions. The droid will respond to his owner’s requests with a realistic range of reactions.

Extending arms: As in the movies, R2-D2 can extend his spacecraft linkage and control arms on command, and they also operate when R2-D2 is in autonomous ‘AI’ mode. The flaps on his body conceal hidden droid manipulator arms and probes, which you can extend at will.

You will build your R2-D2 from components engineered to look just like the original Star Wars props – plus state-of-the-art modern electronic components. Taking inspiration from the remote-controlled film prop, your fully functioning half-scale model R2-D2 is engineered in the same way, and has been authentically detailed based on the droid seen on screen. Once assembled, you can choose whether to retain the factory-fresh finish, or give your astromech a weathered, ‘used’ appearance as in the movies.

Build R2-D2 | 1:2 Scale

    When I first saw this I thought it was too good to be true. However I'm quite impressed so far with the build. the right leg is almost finished and it towers over my other R2 model. My only two issues so far are: 1. having delicate electronic components so early on in the build, meaning they have to be safely stored until ready to be installed. 2. the screws are so small, and it's often difficult to tell which ones to use as the magazine isn't very clear. Overall though I'm very happy and can't wait until he's finished.

    I saw the ad for this and looked into it more as I thought it looked so good. Friends said it was going to be expensive but I have looked at a lot of other Diaghostini models that have trebled in price since completed. The quality of the components is outstanding and the one completed leg is very heavy with a metal subframe, metal decor and a very quiet, powerful, smooth running geared motor. The projector is a multi lens composite that is powerful enough to easily project a 2ft wide image on a white wall. Very very pleased and loving the build!!!!

    I started building R2D2 late December 2016 and I haven't looked back. The quality is amazing and the parts are easily put together and even though it's only about a third way through its heavy. The only gripe I have so far is the screws aren't labelled which makes it difficult to know what ones to use especially when the magazine tells you the wrong screws. I'm also building it on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqzCNfXTLIuB8ZkeqVYdh1Q give it a like and subscribe please

    So far this is a Great build all going to plan UNTIL iss 31 Where the 2 parts of his Foot DO NOT Fit they are way out of line.
  • 2017-08-11 18:53:51
    I saw this and thought yes it going to be cheap and nasty but l was wrong the parts (outside plastic inside full metal chasie) are solid the motors for the robot are very robust l love the size of the projector its tiny but it can put a large althentic image of luc and lear on any white wall, l can not wait for what is comming next
