R2-D2 is the newest bobble head in the Star Wars Holiday line. He stands 4.5" tall and comes in a Star Wars gift box.
Artoo is inspired by an illustration for Lucasfilm's first-ever Star Wars Christmas card. The card was distributed in 1978 by the UK offices of Star Wars Corp., (the production company created to make Star Wars). Famed Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie created the card... the first of many he'd create in the 15 years that followed.
At the time this card was distributed, Lucasfilm was enjoying the fantastic success of Star Wars which had been released a year earlier. Star Wars Corp, UK was busy readying The Empire Strikes Back for production.
Made by Funko.
