LEGO has published a video for the Ultimate Collector Series R2-D2 (10225). It has a release date of May 2012 so look for it in stores and online. My first impression for the set is “OMG, got to have!!” It looks like the same R2-D2 figure seen in the Town Hall video a month ago. There’s no word on the price and piece count of the set as of this post. Below is the description given for the set.
**Update 3/16/12** There is now more information for the UCS R2-D2 on Brickset. There will be 2127 pieces and prices will be US $179.99, CA $229.99, UK£149.99, DE€ 179.99, DK 1499 DKK. The tentative release date is set for May 1, 2012.
