With Star Wars Celebration VI coming soon more exclusives are being announced. Today Diamond Select Toys reveals two exclusive Star Wars banks! From Diamond Select Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat:
Star Wars Celebration: These Are the Droids You're Looking For!
If you were a Star Wars fan at San Diego Comic-Con, you probably picked up your vinyl R2-R9 Astromech droid bank by Diamond Select Toys, right? It was limited to 1000 pieces, it's perfectly in scale to your 1/4 scale Star wars figures, it holds loose change and it was only $20 -- what's not to love? But if you weren't at Comic-Con this year, fear not. DST put aside a limited number of the R2-R9s and is shipping them clear across the country to Star Wars Celebration in Orlando! Running August 21-23, Celebration 6 will be the last place to get your hands on the popular red droid, as well as pick up a brand-new droid made especially for Celebration! That's right, C6 will get a special delivery of 100 black R2-Q5 Astromech droids, only available at the show, for the low price of $20 each! Both R2-Q5 and DST's remaining stock of R2-R9s should go quickly, and DST will also have more of their regular Star Wars banks (including the classic R2-D2), so make the Diamond Select Toys booth (#632) your first stop at the con!
