tg star wars releases

Think Geek has unveiled their collection of new Star Wars stuff for Force Friday, and an awesome R2-D2 Bento Box and Millennium Falcon serving tray are among the releases.

Other new food-related goodies include Rebel Friends Cookie Cutters and a Darth Vader metal can cooler.

You can check out their entire Star Wars collection here.


Now you can add R2-D2 to the list of Star Wars can huggers we recently featured. We think it’s the best one of the bunch for your beer.

If you want to go all out, you could step right up to a stein.

This R2-D2 mug holds 20oz of your favorite beverage (coffee in the a.m.) and includes a dome to help keep said beverage (beer in the p.m.) at the proper temperature.

A Han Solo in carbonite fridge is cool, but not as cool as an R2-D2 fridge that rolls right over to deliver your drinks. It was designed by Haeir Asia’s Aqua brand and will be available for sale next year.

It’s the exact same size as R2-D2 and is detailed with lights and sounds. R2 holds about a dozen cans that he will happily deliver to you via remote control on whatever sail barge you happen to be lounging on at the time. No idea how much this will cost, but you can bet it’ll be pricey (but totally worth every penny).

R2-D2 is now a little teapot, short and stout, and he’s ready to pour a nice cup of tea just for you. I only wish it whistled with a “beep boop”.

Leaving the fridge door open for too long is a waste of energy and not at all good for your food. This little gadget can help you remember to shut that door. He’s called “R2-D2 Talking Fridge Gadget (R2-D2TFG)” and he’s currently part of a crowdfunding campaign on Japanese site Makuake. He swivels his head when you open the door and will beep if you don’t shut the door promptly. He will also greet you with his bleeps and bloops every time you open the door to get a snack.

I’m sure it won’t be long before your mind translates those beeps into sentences like: “What, again?” and “Weren’t you supposed to be on a diet?”

Now you can tilt back a cold one from the throat of Darth Vader, Boba Fett or R2-D2 with these Star Wars Signature Steins by Underground Toys.

Each stein is 9″ tall and can hold up to 22 ounces of any beverage. They’re made of high quality ceramic and feature a head-hinged lid with genuine pewter.

When the R2-D2 Measuring cup set came out, I thought it was cute and I love R2, but I’ve always been a fan of black R2 units and black goes way better with my kitchen.

Luckily, ThinkGeek has this exclusive Star Wars R2-Q5 Measuring Cup Set. The body is built from 4 measuring cups and the utility arms detach into measuring spoons. The dome can measure out both a 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon.

I think my kitchen is going to get some upgrades this holiday.

halloween r2-d2

I’ve seen some impressive pumpkin carvings and builds in my day, but Greg Aronowitz’s R2-D2 pumpkin just knocked me off my feet. Not only did he carve a pumpkin to look like the lovable droid and decorate it with candy, he built legs and rigged the pumpkin so that it has a spinning head and moves by remote control. Wow.

See this Halloween astromech come together and move in the video after the break.
