R2-D2 and C-3PO Birdhouses: For the Boids You’re Looking for

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 25, 2012


What if R2-D2 weren’t a rotund little droid at all, and instead, he was a birdhouse? Yeah, I know it’s farfetched, but just picture it. Can’t? Well then just scroll down and through the magic of the internet, your vision will be fulfilled.

These awesomely geeky birdhouses are the creative product of one Ben Mayer, and his handmade birdhouse shop, NirdHaus. The R2-D2 birdhouse has been painted to look just like the little maintenance droid, and even has a functioning LED “optical unit” built into its facade. And if R2 isn’t enough for you, he’s accompanied by C-3PO – who just happens to be familiar with over 6 million species of birds.

R2-D2 sells for $60 (USD), while C-3PO is going for $35 – since he doesn’t have any LED or wiring to worry about.

If I actually thought I’d get anything other than nasty city pigeons landing in these things, I’d be the all over buying one. I suppose they’d look good sitting on a shelf inside too – then they won’t get all crapped up with bird droppings and bits of straw. If you want to beat me to the punch, you’d better head on over to Etsy and grab yours now.
