From Gentle Giant Ltd:
"R2-KT was created by Albin Johnson, founder of the 501st Legion, master droid builder Jerry Greene and the R2 Builders Club, for Johnson’s daughter Katie (the ‘KT’ in the droid’s name is a tribute to her). In real life, R2-KT makes appearances at children's hospitals, Star Wars Celebration and charity events in the southeastern United States. In the Star Wars universe, the character had a cameo in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film, and has been made an official part of the universe’s canon.
Gentle Giant Ltd. is excited to realize our own incarnation of this character with the R2-KT Maquette.

More importantly, we’re proud to announce that $10 from each R2-KT Maquette sold will go to the San Diego Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the R2-KT maquette uses the top photo reference available for top-notch accuracy. Cold cast in high quality polystone and hand painted, each limited edition maquette comes individually numbered and includes a matching certificate of authenticity. Available at SDCC 2014. May the Force be with you."




The 1:6 scale maquette will retail for $80.00, sits H 6.80’’x W 5’’x D 4.5’’ and is limited to 500 pieces. Premier Guild Members can login to their accounts now and pre-order this piece to be delivered after the event.

Poll
Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
