Mini R2-D2 Drives Around Your Desktop, Where’S C-3PO?

Is that a lightsaber unit in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you whip out this tiny little motorized R2-D2 and he starts tooling around your desk between your coffee mug and your iPod dock.

The miniature R2-D2 doesn’t just sit there. Nope, it can tool around any smooth surface, maneuvering in spinny circles just like its full-size brethren. The little droid includes an infrared remote that lets you drive forward, spin backwards. And of course, the remote looks like a tiny lightsaber, natch.

All the while you drive Artoo around, he makes authentic movie sounds and blinks a red LED eyeball on his turning tin-can shaped head.

I must have one. Now.

You can get your grubby little mitts on your own mini R/C R2-D2 over at ThinkGeek for just $29.99 (USD).
