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.
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.
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
