I was walking in Johnsonville Mall one day when i stopped in my tracks. R2D2! Right in front of a store chock full of Lego boxes!
The astromech driod was waist-high and is itself made of Lego. But its dome would occasionally swivel, lights would blink, and beeps and whistles would elicit awe.
They had lots of Star Wars Lego items on sale. Tempting!
It reminded me of the R2D2s I left in Baguio. They're all packed away, waiting for the day to be displayed on a display cabinet once more.
I still have a small memento though... this Lego R2 unit went aboard the plane with us.
Here's to having more astromech droids in my collection! One of my simple pleasures.
