    This is the scale replica R2-D2 cake (previously: this hologram emitting one) created by the folks at Cakes Cove. They make custom cakes for weddings and parties. R2-D2's main body is all cake too -- no rice crispies or anything. Did you know the species of swamp monster tha... / Continue →

    This is the R2-D2 measuring cup set available from ThinkGeek ($20). The stacked cups actually make up his body, and his utility arms are nested measuring spoons! Admittedly, I bet R2 would be a great helper in the kitchen. C-3PO? C-3PO is not a good helper anywhere. "Targ... / Continue →

    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 the Pimp2-D2 action figure that will be for sale by Manly Art at this weekend's New York Comic-Con. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say HOLY SHIT THIS IS REALLY HIGH UP. Did I trick you? I'm actually at my desk. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this... / 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 →

    Don't do it, bro. Seen here being modeled by the saddest lovedoll I've spied all week (and that's saying a lot because I made the mistake of opening my roommate's closet), this is the 'R2-DD2' bra created by Instructables user seamster. It has light up effects and even beep-b... / Continue →

    This is the X-wing fighter bunkbed built by DarthDaddy42 for his very lucky son (not to be confused with this Y-wing bunkbed featured earlier). It has moveable wings, lights, an R2-D2 copilot cooler for juice boxes, and a cockpit with buttons & switches and a flatscreen TV for... / 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 →

    So Christmas is over and people are already back to being their regular jerkbag selves, but before I put Santa to bed here's the R2-D2/C-3PO lamp built by artist Gordon Tarpley that was inspired by the sexy lady leg lamp in A Christmas Story. Never seen A Christmas Story? Joi... / Continue →

    This is the R2-D2 themed engagement ring designed by Joe for his girlfriend Emily, who he met when they were both working at the same tattoo shop. The ring was brought to life by Paul Mitchell Design and the folks at CustomMade. PREPARE TO CRY YOUR EYES OUT (just kidding -- w... / Continue →

    This is reader Morgan's R2-D2 themed Vespa. He did it all himrself and, obviously, did a great job. You know, I modded a Vespa once. "What was the theme?" Wrecked! *waiting for laughter* Wrecked -- as in I crashed it! *crickets chirping* Come on, that one went over gre... / Continue →

    Australian clothing company Black Milk is back at it, this time with an R2-D2 minidress (previously available as a swimsuit) and a Han Solo one-piece. My goodness, is there anything sexier than-- "bikini models?" No, I was going to say Han Solo holding a blaster pistol. TRUT... / Continue →

    Because in the not so distant future there will come a time where EVERY product is available in a Star Wars variety, here's a 76€ (~$97) R2-D2 themed hard suitcase from Salvador Bachiller. Except it's not officially licensed so you expect George Lucas to be on top of removing ... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie reader Doug's home-built Guitar2-D2 electric guitar. He said at first he wasn't gonna send it to me because he felt like that would be too narcissistic of him. Then I think he chugged a couple beers and warmed up a little. I've avoided spreading this link ... / Continue →

    *beep brew bop* This is a modded Bunn coffee maker made by Instructable user inthebathroom (OMG, so am I -- it stinks in here!) to look like R2-D2. But, instead of rolling around the kitchen like a mobile trashcan, he beep-boops and brews coffee. Speaking of -- I was just ta... / 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 →

    Etsy seller extramoneyformommy (fine, but I am gonna expect a raise in my allowance) sells sets of homemade Star Wars crayons (presumably by using these ice molds). Granted with the right mixture of wax and some molds you could make your own, but how many times have you said y... / 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 →
