Star Wars Episode 8 R2-D2 and Porg Enamel Lapel Pin.
Dimension: 44.9mm x 22.6mm x 1.9mm
Material: Base Metal
An enamel pin featuring R2-D2 and a small porg is the essence of the old meeting the new. R2-D2’s story began as the only surviving astromech stationed on Queen Amidala's Naboo Royal Starship. As a well-put together droid, there was no doubt R2-D2 could last a truly long time across the timeline of Star Wars. Porgs, on the other hand, were recently introduced in The Last Jedi as a species of bird living on Ahch-To.
Since R2-D2 as been all over the Star Wars universe, people who have seen films in the original trilogy can recognize the droid. Porgs, as cute as they may be, only exist on the planet where Luke Skywalker was living in exile. Behind the scenes, porgs were created because there were endless amounts of puffin birds living on the real-life location where Ahch-To was being filmed, so filmmakers decided to edit them as alien birds
If the character is a plot-changing droid or an edited version of a real bird, Star Wars fans will love having the new and the old together on one enamel pin. It’s bringing together the best of both worlds.
