As we’ve said before here on GUO, geeks come in all ages!
The Make-A-Wish foundation in conjunction with Little Mountain Productions made Mathew’s dreams come true by delivering this drivable, larger than life R2-D2 in a surprise reveal during a school assembly.
This amazing replica is controlled with a joystick inside and has huge on and off buttons inside. There’s also a parental powered kill switch should getting Mat back out again ever be required.
