LEGO Star Wars 75379 R2-D2 Officially Revealed | March 2024

R2-D2 has been one of the most loveable and popular droids in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in plenty of films and shows, and LEGO sets. Not only has R2-D2 been a Minifigure plenty of times, but he's also been a giant brick-built character in many UCS-style 18+ sets. However, on 1st March 2024 the droid wis returning to his brick-built character form but this time at a more child-friendly and playable scale.

This set, which has been officially revealed today, comes under the set number 75379 and is unsurprisingly just named R2-D2. Retailing for $99.99 with 1,050 pieces, the set is aimed more at children rather than adults which can be reflected through its 10+ branding. This can also be seen through much less complicated building techniques and styles compared to its 2021 counterpart.

The brick-built version of R2 measures 24cm high, 7 cm less than the last buildable R2-D2 of 75308 which released almost 3 years ago. 75379s build of R2-D2 includes a moveable head, R2's third leg which can also be moved and adjusted, a periscope and many different tools that appear throughout the films. He sits on an information plaque alongside a Minifigure version of himself and an exclusive 25th Anniversary Minifigure of Darth Malak.
