Original production blueprint for R2-D2's character in "Star Wars," used by John Stears, the special effects mastermind behind the iconic movie. This large blueprint of a detailed production drawing measures 59" x 32" and is dated 8 January 1976. The drawings feature five different profiles of R2-D2's domed head (here named "ARTOO"), which closely resemble the finished, very recognizable robot. Printed details read, "REVOLVING HEAD OF ARTOO - EXPERIMENTAL PROTOTYPE ONLY ALL PANELS" and additional handwritten notations outline interesting details and specifications such as section names and measurements. Contained in a cardboard tube bearing a typeset label, "Star Wars John Stears Blueprint; R2-D2 Detailed Dome Head attached". Blueprint originates from the estate of John Stears himself. Light moisture stains along upper left and lower margin. Overall in very good condition and well-preserved. A fantastic piece of memorabilia from the most beloved and successful action fantasy movie of all time.
