Sure, the PS4 and Xbox One (or “XBone” as we like to call it around here) are coming out in just two months, so the idea of buying an Xbox 360 or PS3 doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to someone like me.
R2-D2 and C-3PO are obviously best friends in that classic Odd Couple sense. R2 is a take charge kind of droid, while 3PO complains endlessly is is super prissy. If they were roommates, 3PO would be the neat freak.
Princess Leia must have had too much cake and sent this to me as a gift. Nice! Now shut off that hologram and get in my belly, little droid! This awesome R2-D2 cake actually projects Leia’s holographic message.
We’re no stranger to Matt Armstrong aka Monsterbrick’s brick–snapping prowess. Some of his newest creations are for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Days that will be held at LEGOLAND California from June 15-16, 2013. Matt made these astromechs using the instructions on the official LEGO R2-D2 kit and parts from his own LEGO collection.
As editor of both Technabob and The Awesomer, the number of submissions I get for “unique,” minimal, RFID-blocking wallets over on Kickstarter has gotten ridiculous. But just when I thought I’d never post another wallet again, Popov Leather has made me once again believe in humanity.
Last month we saw a pair of custom R2-D2 heels that used components from a toy Artoo to light up and make sounds. Instructables member Seamster used the same tactic but instead of making a shoe, he made a bra that some of you might have been looking for.
There are a number of Star Wars-themed outfits out there that look pretty good – but most of them are clearly for cosplay. But you could probably wear this Star Wars dress out to a club or bar, which is one of the reasons why I think it works really well.
They don’t look stable, but I’m sure some Star Wars fan out there would risk falling over just for the chance to wear these one of a kind pair of shoes made by Mike Warren, a Play Editor at Instructables.
What are geeks taking to the beach this year? I have no idea, because it’s freezing cold where I am. But surfer geeks should be checking out these fun Walking Dead and R2-D2 surfboards. They’ll let you catch a wave while you fly your geek flag proudly.
Only one thing in the world could’ve dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window. And that’s the soft glow of electric robot sex gleaming in the window. Okay, R2-D2 isn’t that hot, but did you get a load of C-3PO’s gams?
I always wondered how the Tusken Raiders passed the time in the desert. Between raiding travelers and shooting at pod racers, they probably had a little time on their hands. Perhaps they make sculptures like this nifty sand Astromech droid.
You know, it’s funny that with all of the R2-D2 merch I’ve seen over the years, I’ve never envisioned the little maintenance droid in wood. But now that I’ve seen him made out of the stuff, I rather like the way he looks.
R2-D2 is one versatile maintenance droid. He can hack security systems, distract stormtroopers, project holographic messages from princesses in need, and even navigate swamps. But did you know he also serves booze?
Everyone loves R2-D2, right? There’s really no reason not to – even if he is made out of cans. That’s right, R2-D2 has been built out a bunch of cans of what look to be sweet corn, Star-Kist tuna and tins of sardines on his chest.
