The droids are depicted as seen in “The Force Awakens” and the details are great. The statue also feature magnets that allow you to stand independently on the included base. R2-D2 is a fictional character from the Star Wars sci-fi universe. He is the only character along with C-3PO to appear in all major chapters of the Skywalker Saga. R2-D2 is a droid specialized in interfacing with all sorts of computers, activating any machinery such as elevators, and skilled in repairs. Hailing from the planet Naboo, he is gifted with a good dose of humor. He is good at taking certain initiatives using sometimes unorthodox methods to help his friends. He is the inseparable companion of the protocol droid C-3PO, who calls him his counterpart. Owen Lars speculates that his particular “character” is due to the absence of regular memory erasures, which can cause instability in a droid. In fact, the memory of R2-D2 is never erased by the escape from Naboo onwards (is 36 years before the death of Darth Vader).
R2-D2 stands 38 inches / 96 cm tall. He moves on 3 “legs” (including a removable one), has a cylindrical body surmounted by a hemispherical head equipped, among other things, with a monocle for seeing and a projector of holographic images. He has several mechanical devices inside the body, including an arc welder, a circular saw and a key for interfacing with the most varied access devices and computers in use in the galaxy. This makes the droid look like a kind of “toolbox“. Like all astro-droids it is often used as a navigator aboard starfighters and other spaceships, therefore it has the ability to establish routes, perform the calculations necessary for the hyperspace jump and maneuver the ship’s commands in concert with the human pilot, who communicates with him through voice commands. He is able to interface with any computer, which makes him very valuable in infiltration and espionage missions, being able to take control of all systems in enemy bases (e.g. elevators and automatic doors). He also has a fair amount of skill in mechanical repairs. He has limited combat capabilities, but, thanks to his artificial intelligence far superior to that of a battle droid, he is able to defeat much more dangerous and better armed opponents than himself.
C-3PO is also a character from the sci-fi universe of Star Wars. He is the only character along with R2-D2 to appear in all chapters of the Skywalker Saga. He is a protocol droid with an anthropomorphic appearance and hails from the planet Tatooine, where he was assembled by the young Anakin Skywalker from discarded pieces. He knows more than 6 million forms of communication, and this skill will make him extremely useful to his various masters. Initially, when Anakin leaves Tatooine along with Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, C-3PO is without cover, but later, he is given a gray cover which is later replaced by a gold one. He is the inseparable companion of the little astrodroid R2-D2, which he defines as his counterpart. There is a very particular relationship between the 2, because R2-D2 is, unlike C-3PO, brave and bold and “drags” him into dangerous and difficult situations, in which, despite declaring himself against, the protocol droid always follows him. R2-D2 often teases the other droid, making jokes with his peculiar sense of humor. Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO 3D Metal Statue sizes: 4.25 inches / 11 cm x 2.36 inches / 6 cm x 4.84 inches / 12.5 cm.
