Nobody serves booze up at a party like a droid. That’s why Jabba had so many of them. The man knows how to party. Now you can get your very own life size fiberglass R2-D2 statue, with light up eye from Etsy seller Starbays.
This life-sized R2-D2 cake is pretty impressive. And you know what? The best way to find the Death Star plans is to eat until your fork hits them. Then you take like 10 more bites until you admit that you’ve found them.
We already know that R2-D2 can swim through swamps, hack computers, fix X-Wing fighters, deliver holographic messages, and even breakdance – and now he works as a keyboard for mobile devices.
I’ve seen plenty of laser virtual keyboards, but there’s not really been much to compel me to buy one – until now.
R2-D2 remains one of the best characters from the Star Wars universe and we all love an R2 action figure in any form. However, R2 figures generally have disappointed. They never capture everything that the droid can do, or include all accessories.
This 150 pound R2-D2 is an amazing confectionery creation. This droid is life-sized and resides in the lobby of The Fairmont San Jose hotel, where they encourage visitors to come into the lobby and take a selfie with it.
Every pilot needs a faithful companion. Even if you’re just driving a 1990 Geo Metro, it’s good to have a personal droid on board, just in case you get into trouble. R2-D2 is up to the challenge – plus he’ll charge your gadgets while he keeps you company.
Despite what it says on its front, this really is the chair that I am looking for. When you spend all day piloting an X-Wing fighter, you get used to having an Astromech droid at your back, so those off-duty hours can feel a bit lonely.
This R2-D2 bank is your new astromech savings and loan unit. R2 will help you save your money. Plus, he’ll talk your ear off each time you drop in some coins with his usual bleeps and whirrs – which in this case translates into, “You are one step closer to affording that new life-sized Stormtrooper toy, Master”.
If you’re going to the New York Comic Con with a kid, stay away from Booth 208. Otherwise you’ll have to explain why there’s a small batch of gold-domed R2-D2 action figures each rocking a purple hat, a cape and a cane.
Astromech droids are like GPS navigation systems for X-Wing pilots. Plus they can help to fix your ship on the fly and just keep you company. They are great to have docked into your hull. If only we had Astromech droids for our cars.
