    This is a shot of the R2-D2 inspired jerseys the Durham Bulls minor league baseball team will be sporting on Star Wars Night, May 4th. Not bad. But more importantly, what do the first 1,000 fans to the stadium get? Ewok bobbleheads? Plastic lightsabers? *actually takes the... / Continue →

    This is a video of the R2-D2 birthday cake Marc Freilich made for his six-year old son Alexander. It has a teensy Pico projector inside so it can project the 'hologram' of Princess Leia followed by 'Happy Birthday Alexander' in the Star Wars font. I like how the one kid at th... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to own your own full size Omni Consumer Products Enforcement Droid 209 (ED-209) from Robocop before? Well now you can because Hollywood Parts is selling one on eBay for $25,000. Granted it's not how I'd spend 25-grand, but a lifetime supply of bourbon isn't for ev... / Continue →

    They say the way to a woman's heart is through her soles. No, no they don't. These are a pair of homemade R2-D2 high heels from Instructables user mikasaurus (who previously brought us those homemade dinosaur heels). I flipped through the instructions on how to make them, an... / Continue →

    Definitely the droid I was looking for -- get it? Because I like beer so much. Just kidding, I've never had a sip in my life. I'm lying. Or am I? I'm an enigma. An enigma wrapped in a baby blanket surrounded by a cloud of B.O. This is an LSU themed R2-D2 kegerator spotte... / Continue →

    Eyestro-mech, get it? I'm gonna punch myself till I bruise later. From Jangsara, the same makeup artist who brought us the Avengers eyeballs, comes this version of R2-D2 (R2-I2?). Hey -- I'm down for anything that promotes me gluing things to my face. No lie, one time I dip... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like Stephen King, Google employee Paul Carff shows off his homebrew(!) Android beer dispenser. Listen Paul: I don't care what the hell operating system a keg is running as long as the beer's cold and my glass is clean. Kidding, totally fine wit... / Continue →

    This is Arenya in her haindpainted R2-D2 shorts. They started off as plain white shorts, then she painted them, now they're R2-D2 shorts. I dunno, it was like a chemical reaction or something. I'm not sure what kind of powers they give her, but I want an Aquaman bathing suit... / Continue →

    This is an R2-D2 inspired Technics 1200 turntable. It was a collaboration between Tex Nasty at Remix Turntable Lab and Full Blown Kustoms. Me? I like my kustoms only half blown. Honestly, of all the stupid change George Lucas made to the original movies I'm surprised he did... / Continue →

    This is a giant drivable R2-D2 model made to carry 7-year old Matthew Grammer as part of his Make-A-Wish Foundation request. Matthew was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in 2009, but has responded well to treatment and his family hopes his last chemotherapy tr... / Continue →

    This is a homemade R2-D2 crash helmet lovingly constructed by artist Jenn Hall. However she is not REQUIRED to wear it, so don't ask her if she licks bus windows (trust me, she took offense when I did). Tell me a little bit more about that sweet R2D2 helmet you've got. How ... / Continue →

    Is there anything more relaxing than falling asleep counting stars on your ceiling? Yes, tons -- including bubble baths. But it's still a good time, and galaxies far far away from passing out on the bathroom floor. Jk jk, I love that shit. Mmmm, SO COLD ON MY BARE CHEST. t... / Continue →

    BEEP BOOP B-- hey handsome. This is a made-to-order hand-knit YAAAR2-D2 sweater from Etsy seller EricaKnit. It costs $450 (~$430 more than a white sweater and cans of black, blue and grey spraypaint) and is NOT the sweater you're looking for if you're planning to attend a tac... / Continue →

    Make up your f***ing mind -- is this or is this not the droid you're looking for?! Starwars superfan Len Komanak went and built himself a giant cardboard R2-D2 out of a whole bunch of large appliance boxes (where'd you get those -- I'm always looking for those things!). Hey, ... / Continue →

    Well done. Get it?! Like meat, yo! This is a meat smoker ("just like you, GW!") designed and built to look like R2-D2 by Philip Wise (you're smart -- how do magnets work?). The droid was constructed out of an old 55-gallon drum and comes with everything you need to smoke a ... / Continue →

    GOD, WHY DO YOU GARBAGE MEN ALWAYS DRIVE BY WITHOUT EMPTYING MY BIN? "Because, that, sir, isn't the bin we're looking for." Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week or at least until management realizes I wasn't booked and don't know shit about comedy. Custom R2-D2 Garbag... / Continue →

    Note: This is not the graphic you're looking for, I had to cut it. Click HERE to see the entire thing in full-res. This is the story of Star Wars: A New Hope told in little icons as created by digital designer Wayne Dorrington. I tried "reading" it, but came up with a story ... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure that's not how you sell phones. Sell phones, get it?! LIKE CELL PHONES, DUMMY! This is a commercial for the new Sony Erickson 'Xperia Play' (Aka 'the PSP phone'). In case you couldn't tell, it's kinda dark. And creepy. Like my uncle's basement, but without... / Continue →

    Alternatively, the virgin suicides. Get it? Nobody wanted to hit that! C3POsuicides is a website that creates pictures and videos of everyone's (except this pervert) least favorite droid doing himself in. It updates every Tuesday with a new series but is just now getting of... / Continue →
