I have a belt buckle I wear all the time that was given to me by an old friend who got it from someone else. It looks like this buckle:



Except I think it's brass (I'm not very knowledgable of metals), and the Star Wars logo is in one line at the bottom. Above it is C-3PO and R2-D2 and it has their names on each side.

I looked for pictures of it on the internet but couldn't find any. I have no idea how old it is. I will take a picture in a little while if you'd like to see it.

I've seen a belt buckle similar to what you described... but I'm not sure if it's the same one. Please, share a pic if you can!

CE: Got 'em both!

Daniel: I've never seen that specific buckle... interesting! Can you take a shot of the back of it for me too?

I've been told it's an original from when the first Star Wars movie came out, but I'm not sure if I believe that. It certainly seems like it could be old enough though, plus the fact that I've never seen it anywhere else, not even in a picture on the internet makes me think it might be true.

I actually took a picture of the back earlier, but then I decided it was too uninteresting to post. There's absolutely nothing on the back. No words or anything like that. It has the loop thing for the one side of the belt to connect to, and then a hook for to go through the holes in the belt. Other than that on the back it just looks like a really old piece of metal.

I guess I'll take another picture. I deleted the other one.



A bit out of focus, but it's not like there's much to look at anyway.

Hmm... hard to say. It has no s, s, or s on it, but the other vintage one's I've seen didn't either so far as I know. It's definitely older, but I'm not sure if it's official or not. Either way, I'd buy one if I came across it for a good price. Wink

Wow, a new one! Never seen it, but I like it... is there any other info you can give me about the site it's listed on? Not sure if I can trust it, or if it's a pre-order, or what. Good one though!

Hey Don, I don't think think you can buy this but here is an USPS R2-D2 Mailbox.

I heard on the news that one of these things was stolen somewhere. I think it was in Kentucky.

How about a book about R2?

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Mystery_of_the_Rebellious_Robot

I have that book, and it is probably the most non-canon Star Wars I've seen. It's like someone watched the A New Hope once, and then was told to write a children's book about it, but unfortunately they couldn't quite remember how the plot of the movie went. Nevertheless, they remembered some specific scenes, so they just inserted those randomly(like 3PO's oil bath) and connected them with their own plot devices:

Luke and a crew of scientists are building a Super-Vaporator to help Tatooine's drought.
Han looses control of the Falcon, due to R2 commandeering it, not the Death Star's tractor beam.
Jawas are poisoning the droid's oil supply.
The War Room on Yavin IV is on Tatooine now.

This book cracks me up every time I read it.

I used to have that book. When I was little, I loved it. Now, I read it whenever I need a good chuckle.

My Dad got me an odd little R2 watch from the company he worked with (or something like that) in the 90's. Well I think it was R2, I'll check!

EDIT: Hmmm I've looked. but cannot find it!
