R2-D2 Etched Glass: The Droid You are Drinking from

 |  |  |  |  December 1, 2011


If you want to buy me something nice for the holidays, I think I just found it. I would definitely be happy with a set of these intricately-etched R2-D2 glasses from Japan.

This isn’t some cheap piece of glass. It’s a 10-ounce whisky glass, done up with the ancient Kiriko glass-etching technique – dating back to 1824. Unfortunately, I have expensive taste, as a single one of these collectible R2-D2 glasses sells for 50 bucks. Yeouch. So much for my dreams of owning a set of 8 to share with my friends.

Well, I guess I should be glad that Kotobukiya is out of stock of these, since that would be just one more thing for me to spend money on that I don’t really need. For now, I’ll just look at the pretty pictures of the world’s most fragile droid.
