The Most Expensive Collectible At Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Will Set You Back $25,000

Posted by Dustin on May 26, 2019 at 10:00 AM CST


/Film reports that fans with deep pockets will be able to customize and order their own fully functioning R2-D2 Astromech unit. The cost will be $25,000 for your very own full scale remote controlled Astromech with sounds and lights.

Luke Inspects Droids

Here's what /Film had to say-

But in Galaxy’s Edge, Disney is offering something completely new – a life-sized remote control R2 droid of your choosing. What this means is you can custom build your own R2 unit. You can choose the colors and the head and make it whatever you want it to be. This is no toy; this is the same kind of R2 droid that you see in the movies or at Comic-Con. The head moves, the droid beeps, the lights all light up. This is as real as it gets. Part of me thinks this is very cool, and another part of me feels that the fact that they are selling a $25,000 droid is absurd.

This might be the most expensive non-limited edition item ever sold in Walt Disney’s original magic kingdom. For $25,000, you get the droid, which features working lights, sounds, electronics, an aluminum head, wireless remote control, and a charger. Asked if the R2 unit’s head was metal, an employee at Droid Depot tapped on the aluminum top, and R2 started screaming like he didn’t enjoy the physical interaction. He then said, in-character, that the droid would come with a restraining bolt so his owner, could keep him under control.

It should be noted that the price does not include tax, nor does it include shipping. And get this: your usual Annual Passholder discount or Cast Member discount does not apply on this purchase. Disneyland Cast Members, Signature, and Signature Plus Annual Passholders usually get 20% off merchandise, but not in this case.



It will be interesting to see how many they sell and if the quality is worth the $25,000 price tag.
