Hello everyone, Dustin here from Rebelscum.com, TheForce.net, and of course R2D2Central.com! I'm starting this thread for R2-D2 Focused collectors to post in. Basically post anything cool about R2-D2 collectibles. From your own collection, to recent finds, to customs, let's see it!

Yes it is a blown up scan of the old comic book ad, a friend of mine did a bunch of crazy prints when he was working at a print shop, there are a few sprinkled through out the collection

Just a quick phone pic but here's my R2 focus. Still waiting on some star cases for a couple of carded figs. And always on the look out for new items.

ok I give up who is captain solo? I think its sean am I right?

This set up shown is the movie room downstairs. The R2 room used to be upstairs in the room that over looked the living room.

BUT...... now its all being packed up again as we are moving in October :-(

Sucks packing and moving.

HOWEVER, I have a fresh canvas to start with at the new place!

I will post an update in here soon as it is all set up!

Hi!
Anymore R2 fan collectors out there? I am in the process of moving unfortunately and can't take picture right now. As soon as I am able to get everything set up again in a couple months, I will do so. I mainly collect astromechs and ewoks...and the occasional Boba and concepts!

Yes! Love it! I've always been an R2 nut myself. I have a hard time playing favs, so I don't consider mine a focus collection, but let's just say the R2 and Yoda items are the ones most frequently in the best display areas of what little space I have.

Here, you other R2 nuts will get a kick out of this:





still in the original shipper box!!! how cool is that?! The shipper box is actually specific to the R2-D2 character w/a label from Wilton's packing & distribution from 1980-

Hey, Does anyone think they can grab an extra R2 pin at the celebration an send it this way? I would go to the Celebration, but as a 14 year old in Boston, it's a little hard.

Cool! Meesa love Jar Jar best, but I like R2 too!

Edit: Sorry. Wife was laughing really hard and I couldn't figure out why. Now I know. I hate it when she does this, but sometimes it's pretty funny.

And now for something compleatly different:
Well almost 48 hours ago I posted an enquiry in the Vintage section:
Good A.M. Y'all,
I was wondering if any of you vintage gurus have a list of the foreign to U.S. translations of C-3PO & R2-D2 :confused:
I enquire so that I may use them on my pending display on a small placard with the country's flag and the name :awesome:
I already have:
French
C-3PO=Z-6PO
R2-D2=D2-R2


Italian
C-3PO=D-3BO
R2-D2=C1P8

Now in 118 views, it received only ONE responce being from Aussiejames, in which he added:
Mexico
Ar-tu-ri-to

Ci-Tri-Pi-O
So seeing as there is a dearth of knowledgeable friendly people there :\, I am re-posting my enquiry here and in the Astromechs collectors thread.

As usual any and all information is greatly appreciated :grin:

I saw this Comicon item while touring Rancho Obi Wan and just had to have one. Found one on ebay and it arrived the other day. Haven't taken a pic yet - but here's the one from ROW. Very non-politically correct R2. :awesome:

It's not new but....have you seen the R2 usb hub? There is one out there that is cheaper and doesnt light up (it has the usb ports at the bottom of the frame), the other one is this (*an R2-Q5 is also available if you can find it):
