R2-ME2 is a Sideshow Collectibles art show where a large group of talented artists reimagine the classic Star Wars astromech droid R2-D2. The entire gallery of custom R2-D2s, each based on a Sideshow R2-D2 Deluxe 1/6 Scale Figure, were on display at the 2015 Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California.

The Force is strong with this collective of creative minds from across the galaxy! Starting with a blank prototype of our Deluxe R2-D2 Sixth Scale Figure, Sideshow invited over 90 friends and fans to participate in customizing the iconic droid with a brand new look. Check out a sneak peek at the progress on these one-of-a-kind custom projects below, and follow along on Instagram with the hashtag #R2ME2.
