Back-order Lego R2-D2 at Lego Store UK

The new Lego R2-D2 set is incredibly hard to come by, and that's not surprising; with plenty of interactive features that include a hidden replica of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, it's an impressive model that's designed as a piece de resistance you can proudly put on display. And even though it's temporarily out of stock in the US (you can look for new deals or check your local Lego Store here), it is still available on back-order in the UK for £179.99. In fact, it'll ship by May 13 if you purchase it now.

Standing at 12.5 inches (31 cm) high and 7.5 inches (19 cm) wide, this new Lego R2-D2 set isn't a throwaway novelty - it's a ludicrously detailed figure with authentic touches pulled directly from the films. Namely, it's got a retractable central leg, extendable hatches that hide R2's tools, a periscope that can be moved, a rotating head, and Luke’s lightsaber that can be retrieved from a secret compartment. A lot of love has clearly gone into this model, so it's something any Star Wars fan would be psyched to own.

Don't give up hope if it's not available in your area right now, though. While the Lego R2-D2 set sells like no-one's business, the same thing happened with the Lego NES set and Lego Friends kit - both of which are now regularly back in stock. Basically, it won't always be so hard to find.

Just don't fall for scalpers' tricks. The Lego R2-D2 set is available elsewhere despite being a Lego Store exclusive, but we'd proceed with caution when it comes to re-sellers. Their deals are usually overpriced.

Predictably, the Lego R2-D2 set sold out very quickly when it went on sale at the beginning of May. However, it's only temporarily out of stock and is still available in physical Lego Stores. Check yours here by selecting the 'Check Store Stock' tab.

As the latest entry in Lego's detailed, collector-focused Star Wars range, this R2-D2 figure is really quite something. You can order it on back-order for shipping within 60 days, but you'd better hurry - it's a Lego Store exclusive so will almost certainly sell out before long.
