R2-D2 Planetarium Dated and Priced: My God, It’s Full of Stars

Remember that awesome R2-D2 planetarium from a while back? Of course, how could any self-respecting geek forget? Well, it is finally on it’s way to store shelves and our geek homes and hearts.


The R2-D2 Homestar is a fully functional planetarium inside of our favorite Star Wars droid. Sega finally has given us a date and a price on this little guy. He will be available on September 15 for appx. $88 (USD). That’s not a bad price at all for a projector with 10,000 stars in it. Oh, and of course it shows the Death Star too.

It uses a 1W white LED and uses four AAA batteries, which will give you three hours. R2 stands just 21cm high, so he isn’t very big, but he has a projection range of 1.5-2.3m/4.9-7.5ft with a projection area of 1.8m/5.9ft circumference.

You can find it at Japan Trend Shop for those of us not in Japan, where you can pre-order it now.
