I’d love to have an R2 unit of my very own to help around the kitchen, but unfortunately, I don’t think that’s in the cards. The best I can do is probably make myself an R2-D2-themed steampunk teapot. It’s not as difficult as you might think.

In the latest episode of Awe Me’s Artist Series, Marissa Deal shows us how to make a brass-and-rivets-style teapot with a little Star Wars flair. See how it’s done in the video below. [click to continue…]


Someone made an R2-D2 popcorn popper because they love us and want us to have nice, healthy, Star Wars droid made, air popped popcorn for Star Wars movie nights.

Isn’t that sweet?

Plus, this air popping droid stands a little over a foot tall, so he doesn’t take up much space and he’ll look cute on your counter.

Gimme. [click to continue…]

R2-D2 Bowls For Everyone!

The Salt Cake City bakery has created some magnificent R2-D2 groom’s cakes that depict a detailed droid noggin protruding from a tux complete with realistic buttons and a boutonniere.

Then again, R2-D2 is having a little trouble deciding on the outfit. Should he go traditional black tie as pictured above, or with the matching blue tie pictured below?

Is that life-size R2-D2 fridge to rich for your blood? Not to worry. The R2-D2 or BB-8 Mini Fridge (pictured below) can chill the same amount of beer. It also has a warm setting.

Sure, it won’t bring beers to you like the life-size version, but it does cost about $8,830 less.

Check out the BB-8 fridge after the break…


Back in July we posted about this awesome R2-D2 remote controlled fridge that can personally deliver the beverage you’re looking for. Well, we finally found out the price tag for this functional fridge droid, and it’s more expensive than we imagined. $8,900 (1,077,840 yen) to be exact. It’s also only available in Japan.

Okay now that the initial shock is out of the way, you have to decide whether or not having R2-D2 bring beers to you is worth that kind of investment. The officially licensed 1:1 scale fridge can keep drinks cold and has lighting and sound effects that are true to the movies. And don’t forget that it’s remote controlled.

Check out new photos and a video of the R2-D2 fridge after the break.

Finally, the perfect bowls for your Star Wars cereal.

Wouldn’t it be great to have R2-D2 and C-3PO helping you around the kitchen? Well, until some scientist gets around to inventing actual sentient droids, you’ll just have to settle for these R2-D2 and C-3PO ceramic bowls. R2-D2 can hold 4 and 3/4 cups while C-3PO can hold about 3 and 1/4 cups.

They’re perfect for cereal, chips and more. Just make sure to avoid the Doritos Death Star.


R2-D2 makes a muffin top look gooood.

This set of 4 R2-D2 Cupcake Molds is ready for your baking prowess. Just mix up some cake batter and pour it directly into our favorite little astromech’s body. Bake according to the instructions on whatever recipe you’re using. Once these come out of the oven and cool, you can decorate and serve these up right in the mold. We’ve used fondant in our photo to achieve R2’s iconic dome, but these would be a lot of fun if you let kids decorate them with frosting and candies. Freeform R2 units! Or go wild and fill them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and sprinkles.
