    Sad. He is the first of the main cast to go since Alec Guiness probably.

    Yes he was a VERY large piece of the success of Star Wars and don't forget Time Bandits too....

    I got his autograph a year or so ago and he did appear to be a bit unwell then but seeing as he was in his 80s I put it down to age more than anything, but Star Wars and Time Bandits were amazing films when I was a kid and are still amazing films now, RIP Mr Baker.

    Sad news. We will always remember him for his bringing life to that feisty astromech droid. Rest in peace, Kenny.

    It saddens me to learn of his passing. But his spirit will live on every time I watch his performances in the Star Wars saga, Time Bandits and The Elephant Man.

    Be a peace Kenny. R2 will never be the same. No CGI or advanced robotics will every replace what you did!
