Object of the Week for May 2

May the Fourth be with you

This R2-D2 droid costume, in the National Museum of American History, was featured in the movie 'Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi' (copyright Lucasfilm Ltd). Actor Kenny Baker sat inside this shell and manipulated the droid movements.

Is that R2D2 at the National Postal Museum too?
