    This is one of the made-to-order R2-D2 Leather Derby hats available from Etsy shop TheBlondeSwan, who, for the record, was never an ugly duckling. Kind of an awkward looking teenager though. The hats cost around $600 and there aren't any pictures of a person actually wearing ... / Continue →

    These are the Star Wars kites available from ThinkGeek. They come in Death Star, Millennium Falcon, X-Wing and R2-D2 varieties, and cost $40 apiece. Here's a fun lifehack: the next time you're at the beach, fly a kite, then tie the string to your beach chair. That way your f... / Continue →

    Because Star Wars everything, this is the $60 R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp available from ThinkGeek. It looks like everybody's favorite droid minus the people whose favorite droid is BB-8 or one of those Gonk droids that looks like a trashcan with feet. You know I used to ha... / Continue →

    This is a Roomba cosplaying as it's favorite Star Wars character, R2-D2. The costume was made by artists at Bel & Bel. Unfortunately for you Roomba owners, I don't think they're actually going to produce the kit for sale. I could be wrong though. I'm not, but I could be. I'... / Continue →

    This is a compilation of every time R2-D2 saves the day in the first six Star Wars movies. He deserves a medal. Without him, pretty much everybody would have died. Without me? Nobody would notice until my rent didn't get paid or my apartment started to smell. I was just lo... / Continue →

    This is a video of NASA roboticist Brett Kennedy discussing what he thinks of the designs of Star Wars droids BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO. BB-8 he's not that into from a practicality standpoint, but he digs aspects of R2 and C-3PO. He would only suggest taking C-3PO into space thou... / Continue →

    They're not actually thigh-highs, they're just made to look like they are. They are full tights. $20 gets you a pair of both Darth Vader and R2-D2. They're the perfect stockings for letting everyone know that yes, you've seen Star Wars before. Or for tricking people into th... / Continue →

    This is 'R2-D2 In Love', a video edit by WhoIsPablo of R2 plugging his universal computer interface arm into a bunch of love sockets all sexy-like, set to Yello's 'Oh Yeah' (the song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Man, it's weird to think there's a droid out there having more... / Continue →

    Because it's clearly somebody's job at Disney to make sure there's a licensed Star Wars version of every product, these are the Darth Vader and R2-D2 shower heads from Oxygenics (and available at Bed Bath & Beyond). Each has three settings: spray, jet, and mixed. R2 costs $25... / Continue →

    This is the $60 R2-D2 Dome Purse available from ThinkGeek (among other places -- shop around!). It looks like R2-D2 and holds things. Not very big things, mind you. Will it be this fall's must-have fashion accessory? I doubt it. Will slap-bracelets and toe rings make a com... / Continue →
