Kaminoan: I guess I only caught the top half of your first post there I guess... so lemme cover 'em all!
    That Takara wind-up toy is George Lucas's favorite toy, and very expensive. I don't have one, but have bid on several.
    -That bootleg "R2" is ridiculous, but not the worst I've seen... I'm sure I would have tried to buy it if I saw it on eBay for cheap.
    I have that eraser, as well as two others from TPM,
    ...and I have that snow globe,
    ...and the potato head.
    I've seen that webcam/skype phone, though I didn't know it was from the same company that made the projector.
    I have the little RC R2 (unweathered, as is the one you've shown),
    ...and that BK toy. Along with the two other types they had in other countries.
    imperialshadows showed me that awesome flash drive, still can't find a place to order one though.
    I've got that bottle topper, it's from Pepsi in Japan, and I've got all four styles from the various releases as well as the individual wrapper with R2 on it.
    -And finally, that chocolate box is a new one for me.


So yeah, great list! Two new ones Very Happy

Give email a try. Since the story was from November, it could have sold out, but it's part of the series shown on that page (and that's the page where the original blog entry came from).

Let us know if it works out.

Don, this is as far as I got. (There's some words on that page that aren't "family friendly")

When I Googled R2D2 Metal Japanese Star Wars USB, I was on a hot trail. I sorta got lazy towards the end. Sorry. Sad

Hope you get one though. Smile

Yeah, google's no real help here. I've found loads of blog posts, but no site where I could purchase on in the US (that I know of, all of them are gobbledygook to me)

Don, i dug this bad boy out of my basement for you.



It originally contained 'jelly sweets' which i ate.... in about 1997 Smile It also came with a badge. As you can see i've also got Vader and Stormtrooper versions. I'm not sure if they were around during the re-release of the OT or for TPM.

You like?

Cool I like... The date is 1996, so that'd be right around the time they brought the Special Editions in theaters. Never seen that before. Nice... what else you got Lou?

Also, if there's any chance you'd want to part with that... LMK Wink

I know it's not something you can BUY, but I saw this over at CS, and don't know if you have seen it yet:

Steam powered R2D2

Just the steam engines on that are around $200 apiece. Don, if you want to buy one, I could make one but it would cost you...

You probably have one of these, but how 'bout a R2 crazy straw?

Or maybe this shirt?

GIR, sadly I missed out on the McQuarie droids due to my drama over that weekend... I'll be able to get them from someone at a decent price I'm sure.

Tzidik: stop teasing me! I know I need that one... be helpful and find one for me at a good price Wink

Sorry, I have nothing to show you, but my cousin (back in japan) had a really unique R2 Lego head.

Even though the R2 Lego domes have a silver coloring over them, one of his R2 didn't, and it was completely white with the blue R2 design.
I guess it was a printing mistake, and thought it was pretty rare...

So... anyone else willing to step up to the plate? Very Happy

Wild shot but have you seen the R2 D2 Pez Dispenser?
Or the Sweet tin?
Or the (is it a can opener? As seen in this pic.
Or R2D2 Ipod holder?
That's all I can think of for now.

I got a Droid Developer Kit laying in the basement. I'll cut you a deal if my parents allow me to sell it to you. Very Happy

I'm checking if it has all the pieces.

You're almost sure to have seen this, but as it is an R2 product that I remember fondly, I figured I'd chunk it into the "challenge" pile:

Kenner 36" R2-D2 bop bag (1978)


Kick your favorite little droid's tucus!

Yes I have! That's one of the few vintage items that I actually want... it's just hard to come by in good condition, and for a good price.
