Mail-away offer from the 1999 blockbuster "Phantom Menace". Pristine condition!
Scale: Similar in size to the 6" Action Collection "R2". Here, next to "Bespin Luke", you can easily see how cool this droid goes with the 12" line.
Not a static clock/ toy, legs tilt back (but head does not rotate).
Hologram projector: Really cool detail. Pop up R2´s head panel and a light turns on projecting 9 yo Anakin´s face wherever you point it to. If your alarm clock is by your bed, you´ll see Anakin on the ceiling! Uses 2 AAA batteries.
This was a mail-away offer by Pepsi. Each 6-pack of Pepsi or 7UP came with an insert. Once collected a certain (big) amount of them, PepsiCo would send you one R2D2. Offer was limited 2 per person.
Also, and since we´re on it, inside the 6 pack set of inserts, one would get 4 different stickers of a collection of 20. Pictured above, the entire collection including the hard to find 1 (podracer Anakin), 11 (Jabba) and 17 (Obi-Wan with saber).
An extremely well put-together little droid !
