Found this strange R2D2 like figure in my older sister's basement while cleaning out her house (long story behind that). There really isn't any information on it other than "Great Plains" with a circled R on the back of the base. I believe that it was most likely a paint by number type ceramic kit, most likely from the late 70s early 80s in an attempt to get in on the Star Wars merchandizing....but not entirely sure about that theory.

I say that it's R2D2 like, because that's what it reminds me, however it's much boxier, as R2 D2 was round and more trashcan like than this guy. Also, it's silver, blue and black, not white. It's about 8" tall.

Anyone out there have more info? I would love to know if a.) I can sell it and b.) what price range I can possibly set it in.

    Wow! I don't know what that thing is, either, but it's fantastic! I'm a pretty big Star Wars geek and collect many Star Wars bootleg and knock-off pieces, but even I have never seen that. You may want to ask around the forums at RebelScum.com. Those guys know their stuff and could probably help you find its value, and possibly even sell it to an avid collector.

    Thank you so much for the suggestion! I will definitely head over there and see what I can learn.

    the Head scream r2d2, but the body screams 1950's B-rated sci fi movie.. to be honest I am as shocked as reis. it looks so cool, but something makes me think you should Look into "it came from outer space" movies.. i bet if you watched a handful of MST3K you would find the movie which it belongs to
