An R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) blueprint used in the production of George Lucas' Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Along with his fellow droid C-3PO (Anthony Daniels), "Artoo" appeared in all but one film in the Star Wars saga as a companion of the Skywalker clan and ally to the Rebellion.
This blueprint, a copy of an original rendered for A New Hope by draftsman Peter Childs on 20th Century Fox drafting paper labeled "Robot R2," was printed specifically for the production of the prequel film Attack of the Clones. It depicts the droid's full front assembly view, including his signature swiveling dome and louvered front valves. The blueprint is marked "DRG No. 67" and dated "20-1-76" with a reissue date of "23 Jan. 76." It is in poor overall condition and exhibits significant signs of age and wear, including multiple punctures, stains, and creasing from storage.
Dimensions: 30" x 46" (76.25 cm x 117 cm)
