To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi, this is
the droid you are looking for! An awesome retro-style toy advertisement poster for R2-D2, the Star Wars R2-D2 Astromech Droid Retro Ad Poster Paper Giclee features an image of the R2 unit as it might have looked on a toy ad in the Star Wars
universe. It calls out the key features of the "Battery Operated Astromech Droid," with yellow arrows pointing to R2's periscope, scanner, holographic projector, sparking abilities, and excellent co-piloting. It even states that the R2 unit is not recommended for Dagobah! Measuring 19-inches tall x 13-inches wide, this fine-art paper print is a limited edition of 150 hand-numbered pieces, signed by the artist. It includes a certificate of authenticity.
Giclee (pronounced "zhee-clay") is an invented name for the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word was coined to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the fine-art prints artists were producing on the same printers. The name has since come to mean any high-quality, ink-jet print, and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such. In the past few years, the word (as a fine-art term) has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant "archival" inks and the inkjet printers that use them. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.
