Yodasnews is happy to announce the final Gentle Giant LTD SDCC Exclusive, and it is R2-KT
R2-KT 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, who tragically passed away from brain cancer in 2005 at the age of seven. 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 has appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and has been made an official part of the universe’s canon.
Gentle Giant Ltd. is honored to create R2-KT as part of the Star Wars maquette line. More importantly, we’re proud to announce that $10 from each R2-KT maquette sold will go to the Make-A-Wish® San Diego Chapter.
The R2-KT maquette will be sold at the Gentle Giant Booth at SDCC and will be listed for pre-order later today at this link for Premium Guild Members! Click below for our exclusive first look at this awesome maquette!
