R2-D2 “Talking” Piggy Bank: 1st National Bank of Droid

by Conner Flynn

This R2-D2 bank is your new astromech savings and loan unit. R2 will help you save your money. Plus, he’ll talk your ear off each time you drop in some coins with his usual bleeps and whirrs – which in this case translates into, “You are one step closer to affording that new life-sized Stormtrooper toy, Master”.

As far as I’m concerned, this little droid beats any federal stimulus package. He measures 7 1/2″ high x 5 1/10″ wide x 4″ deep, and uses 3 LR44 batteries, which are included so you don’t have to spend any of your hard-earned change to get him beeping.

The sound quality seems pretty much on the money. The R2-D2 bank will cost you $21.99(USD) from ThinkGeek. Think of it as a long term investment as R2 will help you save way more than that. Is there anything this droid can’t do?  3PO seems so useless. You never hear about him helping anyone, unless they need some language translated or a lesson in etiquette.
