For the past few years Sideshow Collectibles has not offered any exclusive products at SDCC (instead offering up Hot Toy’s summer exclusives on their site) – however today they announced a return to SDCC exclusives with a new variant of their sixth scale R2-D2 figure. This ‘unpainted prototype’ figure is a what-if figure speculating what a fresh off the assembly line Astromech droid would look like. Fearuing a monochromatic silver finish, thie figure includes many of the same features as the original including several hinged panels and an articulated light-up dome.
The figure has an SRP of $149.99, but is currently available for pre-order for just $120 with options to pick-up at the convention or have it shipped. A $5 non-refundable deposit is required if you want to order it. You can pre-order the ‘unpainted prototype’ R2-D2 here.
