This action figure, known as the "pink droid with a heart of gold," was designed in 2007 by Albin Johnson for his six-year-old daughter Katie, who was dying of a brain tumor. Hasbro and Lucasfilm donated $100,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation from the procedes of the figure's sale. R2-KT can be seen visiting children's hospitals and appearing at charity events in southeastern America.. As an homage to Katie, the droid had a cameo in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film. Designer Albin Johnson is also known as a co-founder of the 501st Legion, a fan-run costuming and service organization.
