Thanks to my parents, I received an early Christmas present and swell lead-in to "Star Wars: Episode VII"...
It's the JAKKS 18" R2-D2!!!
The figure is equipped with movable legs and a quasi-rotational dome.
This one's a great addition to my other jumbo JAKKS "Star Wars" figures and in scale to the series' 18" Yoda (see "Collectible Time #41": Oct '15).
Right now, this particular R2-D2 is a tad elusive, though it's starting to make increased rounds at various department stores. Indeed, a nicely detailed piece and for the price ($40-$50), a wise investment.
Also, as yet another advance "Star Wars" Christmas gift, my dear friend, Melissa F. surprised me with a spectacular "Force Awakens" plush blanket, featuring Kylo Ren (with his distinct saber searing the scene), accompanied by various past-and-present "Star Wars" favorites.
The blanket measures a practical 50" x 60" and is ideally suited for staying comfy and adventurous all at the same time. A handy work of art if ever there was such!!!
