Buyers please not: I am on holiday for a week starting from 19/07/2019 - 26/07/2019 please be patient during this time. I will respond to messages in due time. But there may be a short delay in dispatching the goods

I would prefer the buyer to collect but could arrange a courier but this is a heavy item and will need a lot of packaging to send it safely with insurance so the cost will reflect this. Next day 24hr delivery with either DPD or FEDEX. Please allow 24-36hrs to prepare for shipment as this still needs to be safely and securely packed.  Once the r2 has been despatched i will send you the tracking number. If collection in person is more suitable you shall receive a Full refund of postage. If you would like to set a meeting point then a part refund of the postage would be more than fair.

From the manufacturer:- 

Product in Depth 

You will build your own R2-D2 from components engineered to look just like the original Star Wars props (already completed by me) – plus state-of-the-art modern electronic components. Taking inspiration from the remote-controlled film prop, your fully functioning half-scale model R2-D2 is engineered in the same way, and has been authentically detailed based on the droid seen on screen. 

Manufacturer spec: 

Scale: 1:2 - Width 28cm x Height 48cm. 
Weight: 8.5kg (without batteries) 

One-piece metal dome: R2-D2’s real metal dome spins just like the original, enabling him to turn to face his owner, look around his environment and point his camera and projector in any direction without moving his body. R2 has diecast metal & plastic internal chassis. R2 is supplied as a "factory-fresh finish" so that once assembled you can choose to retain the factory finish, or give him your own "weathered" appearance. 

Dual mode: You can switch R2-D2 to operate under command or in autonomous ‘AI’ mode, where he will behave like the willful astromech in the movies. 

Video/Still Camera: The video/still camera in R2-D2’s head allows him to take snapshots and short video clips, which can be stored on your mobile device. You can turn his head to focus on any person or object in his field of vision, and his programming includes the ability to detect and track human faces. The camera used is 720 HD (i.e. 1280 X 720) camera. However, in order to transfer the video through wifi, MotionJpeg compression is used,. And the resolution seen on the mobile device will be reduced to 640 X 360. 

Wi-fi enabled: Wi-fi receiver and transmitter, communicating with a tablet or smartphone, (operation can also be controlled via 'WiFi direct mode'). 

Communication: via authentic chirps, whistles and colored light displays. 

Projector: Display the holographic messages using a projector which can beam images of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker onto any nearby flat surface. 

Realistic Droid Movement: R2-D2 travels around through powerful drive motors in his feet, which allow him to move forward or backwards or spin on his axis, just like the droid does in the movies. His third leg provides stability, and he has sensors which are programmed to avoid obstacles and stairs. 

Remote-control App-enabled: You can control R2-D2 directly from your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet (App is fee free). Steer him at will, see what he sees, and activate all his special features.

Pop-up lightsaber: Will pop up on demand from the pneumatic ejection tube in his head. 

Rechargeable battery: Inside R2-D2’s chassis is a high capacity battery pack that stores power for his drive motors, roboti
