Packaging Text

R2-KT was created in 2005 to honor Katie Johnson - a very special little girl who tragically passed away from brain cancer on August 9 - 2005 at the age of seven. Her father - Albin Johnson - is the founder of the 501st Legion - a Star Wars costuming fan club that performs charity work around the world. Katie had a special wish: to visit Walt Disney World. Through the generosity of the Make-A-Wish Foundation - Katie's wish was granted. Then one more special dream came true. Katie's sister - Allie - was inspired one day while watching Attack of the Clones - in which R2-D2 watches over the sleeping Padme. Allie thought how great it would be if Artoo could watch over Katie while she underwent treatment - and for the droid to be named "KT" after her sister. The R2 Builders Club made Allie's idea a reality by creating a unique R2 unit especially for Katie. The 501st Legion approached Hasbro with the idea of producing a figure to commemorate R2-KT. This inspired Hasbro and Lucasfilm to help make more wishes come true for children like Katie. Hasbro and Lucasfilm together are donating $100 - 000 in Katie's memory to the Make-A-Wish Foundations of South Carolina and San Diego.
