R2-D2 Star Wars - Kenny Baker Original Autograph Display


Kenny Baker (R2-D2) Original Signature. 

Triple mounted presentation of the original autograph of Kenny Baker who played R2-D2 in the original Star Wars trilogy released between 1977 and 1983 and the second trilogy released between 1999 and 2005.

When Star Wars - A New Hope arrived at cinemas in 1977 it set new standards for sci fi movies, but few could have predicted its enduring impact on popular culture. A sweeping, epic space opera with, at its heart, the simple premise of good versus evil, it tells the story of farm boy Luke Skywalker who teams up with a Princess, a cocky space smuggler, a retired Jedi and two droids to take on the might of Darth Vader and the insidious and violent Galactic Empire.

Critical to the victory of our heroes were the two droids; R2-D2 (played by Kenny Baker) a resourceful, brave and cheeky astromech droid and his constant companion C-3PO (played by Anthony Daniels) a seemingly slightly neurotic etiquette, communications and protocol droid - together they were involved in some of the stories most defining moments and thrilling battles. They stole the hearts of millions and were propelled to a brightness of stardom that remains undimmed to this day.

Aside from his most famous role as R2-D2, Kenny Baker appeared in many TV shows and films during his long career, including Flash Gordon, Amadeus and Jim Henson's Labyrinth. Fittingly his final contribution to the silver screen was to act as a consultant on Star Wars: the Force Awakens in 2015.

The Kenny Baker autograph is on a really nice atmospheric photo still of a scene from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. R2-D2 and Luke Skywalker have just arrived on Dagobah to search for Jedi Master Yoda, who Luke hopes will help him complete his own Jedi training. The presentation is completed with a beautiful piece of artwork in a traditional technical illustration style depicting the R2-D2 droid.

Mounted with high quality, conservation board, this striking presentation would make the perfect talking point for any man-cave or study - a unique one-off.

The autograph was purchased for our own collection from a long standing, highly respected UACC (Universal Autograph Collectors Club) registered member. It is covered by a full no-quibble money back guarantee.

This mounted ensemble will fit into a generally available, standard size 22 x 14 inch ready made frame. Or alternatively you can order it already fitted into a frame. More info on framing options.

A unique gift for someone who appreciates the timeless magic of Star Wars.

This Star Wars R2-D2 autograph presentation comes with an illustrated information sheet printed on high quality A4 card stock. The autograph is covered by a separate Certificate of Authenticity.
