Star Wars fans already have some good ways to open bottled beverages, but for those of you who prefer to sip from of cans, I’ve got something for you too. Yep, what you’re looking at here is an R2-D2 can cooler.
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.
R2-D2 is one of the most versatile maintenance droids out there. He can project holograms, repair spaceships, hack security systems, swim through swamps, and even vacuum your carpet. But I never thought about using R2 as a fruit bowl – until now.
Bladez Toyz, that British retailer where you can meet all of your R/C helicopter needs, recently decided that it wanted to add Star Wars themed remote control items to its Pump and Play sets. LucasArts, as always, was reluctant to give licensing rights, but after a difficult series of negotiations, Bladez secured the ability to produce these toys.
Whether you’re into Doctor Who or Star Wars (or both) – there’s a new way for you to secure your small valuables. These new digital “smartsafes” were spotted during the 2012 UK Toy Fair, and they look pretty nifty.
R2-D2 was a very versatile droid, but throughout all the Star Wars saga, I don’t ever remember seeing him cooking. Even though the little droid has his own BBQ meat smoker, soy sauce dispenser and pepper mill, he’s still never in the kitchen.
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.
This awesome R2-D2 cup was discovered by Ryan over at GeekAlerts and I have to say that it looks a lot better than the one we featured a while ago, which was somewhat expensive and only available in Japan.
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.
One of the droids you are looking for is in trouble. Somehow, poor R2-D2 has found himself encased in a bar of soap. That’s right, the little maintenance droid must have fallen into a swamp filled with clear glycerin soap on Dagobah and then got stuck there.
Remember that time that Slave Leia was lounging out in the desert waiting for her next scene on the Sand Barge with Jabba the Hutt? While she looked pretty chill, I’m pretty sure she would have much rather had this R2-D2 chair to relax in.
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?
So why is it that every time I think that all possible ideas for new Star Wars merchandise have been 100% exhausted, someone comes out with yet another product which nobody ever thought about. Case in point, these R2-D2 mints.
