Plastic Mexican R2-D2
This kind of weird R2-D2 toy was made in Mexico during the vintage years. It should be fairly recognizable to collectors of Kenner's vintage line of toys, since its nothing more than a crude copy of the company's familiar R2-D2 large-size action figure. Much like a similar Mexican Stormtrooper toy, the figure is made of hollow plastic, just like those cheesy lawn ornaments you see a lot of around Christmas time. As you can see, it came sealed in a clear plastic bag.
