With Star Wars Celebration Anaheim just 68 Days away, Star Wars licensee Kotobukiya has revealed their exclusive for the convention.  Kotobukiya announced on their Facebook page that they would selling a two pack of the droids R3-A2 and K-3PO.  They will be available throughout the convention at Booth #1324 and a pre-roder for non-attendees will go up in Aprils on their website.  You can check out a gallery of the statues below,


Kotobukiya writes about the figures, 
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The famous duo of C-3PO and R2-D2 weren’t the only Droids that found their skills put to use during the Rebellion’s struggle against the Galactic Empire. Among the other often unsung heroes include R3-A2 and K-3PO.

R3-A2 served alongside other Astromech Droids, serving the Rebel pilots as a navigator on their fighters and helping to keep their ships in top shape when not in flight, while K-3PO’s vast database and knowledge of military tactics served him in good stead as the coordinator of all droids at Alliance High Command up until his unfortunate destruction at Echo Base during the Battle of Hoth.

R3-A2 stands nearly 4 inches tall in 1/10th scale, includes alternate pieces allowing for display standing upright on two legs or inclined on all three, and comes with a special collector’s coin featuring the logo of Industrial Automation, the manufacturers of Astromech Droids. K-3PO stands over six inches tall, his white metal casing showing damage from a previous engagement. Both Droids feature magnets in their feet for extra stability on the included base, and assemble in seconds with the ARTFX+ line’s easy, snap-fit assembly.

This limited edition set will be available exclusively for purchase during Star Wars Celebration 2015 at Kotobukiya booth #1324 and through an exclusive pre-order opportunity for non-attendees on kotous.com beginning in April.


I got Kotobukiya's exclusive figure at Celebration VI in 2012, so I can tell first hand how high quality their work is.  These look to be no exception to that and will likely make a fine addition to anyone's collection.
