I’ve always thought of C-3PO and R2-D2 as a couple of endearing, but not exactly attractive little droids. These ladies are definitely not the droids I was looking for – but now I can’t help but stare.
C-3PO is like the Rodney Dangerfield of droids. He doesn’t get much respect, but he does get some of the funniest lines. R2-D2 has merchandise of every conceivable variety, but not Goldenrod. That’s because he is prissy, complains incessantly and is easily disassembled so that Wookiees can carry him around.
How did you guys like your Easter egg hunts? To be honest, I have rarely participated in any, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate some good geeky Easter eggs. Check out this bunch from Flickr contributor smile!mermaid
C-3PO and R2-D2 are precious to the Star Wars galaxy, having saved its citizens countless times and providing comic relief in a handful of instances. You can’t put a price on their contributions. Or can you?
Remember that Star Wars Identities museum exhibit that’s coming to Canada? Well, they’ve just released some great promotional posters. The exhibit is set to open April 19th in Montreal, Canada. It’s too bad that I now live on the other side of the world now – I actually used to live in Montreal.
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.
A while back, we shared some of Greg Peltz’s Victorian Star Wars portraits, which made our favorite characters into Victorian gentlemen. Though at the time, we didn’t find the droids we were looking for.
How many times in your life will you have the opportunity to buy an entire set of life-size robots to take over your home? Well, if you happen to have $54,900 (USD) lying around gathering dust, now is your chance.
Over the years, R2-D2 has proven himself to be a pretty versatile droid. He can play holographic messages from Princess Leia, hack into computer systems, repair other droids and even swim through swamps. But did you know that R2-D2 can play music too?
There’s a limited edition Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 coming up, that features some cool droid-inspired designs. Both Microsoft and LucasArts unveiled this console bundle for the upcoming Kinect Star Wars game yesterday at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Actually, that title is a little misleading, because we all know that despite 3PO’s fluency in over six million forms of communication , and R2’s ability to hack into any security system, swim underwater, or project holograms, neither droid knows how to bake a cake.
Remember that R2-D2 swimsuit? Well just in time for it to be negative 10 degrees outside here in the Midwest, the guys at Australia’s BlackMilk are back with another sexy Star Wars number. This time, they’ve added C-3PO to the swimsuit collection.
sQren over at the Star Wars The Old Republic strategies site dug up this little gem while he was rooting around through some old VHS tapes at his parents house.
You see, it turns out that C-3PO knows how to rap – if you can call it that.
Nothing says geek like Star Wars collectibles, and if you are really geeky, you need something you can wear that shouts Star Wars geek to the masses. ThinkGeek has a backpack that will most definitely get the job done when it comes time to step out of the geek closet.
OK, these aren’t really C-3PO USB flash drives, but they do bear a resemblance. I’ve rarely seen golden robots of any kind, except in Star Wars. This cute ‘bot also looks like it’s got the body of a LEGO minifig.
