One thing about R2-D2′s design that Lucas never anticipated was that it would provide so much versatility when decapitated. From the R2 ice bucket, to R2 speakers, this little droid loses his head all the time. I’m surprised he hasn’t been in a Highlander movie. C-3PO is the prissy effeminate one and he hasn’t had so much bad treatment.
Now headless R2 will serve you up some cold drinks as a USB cooler. It goes on sale August 8. All I know for sure is that somewhere there is a huge warehouse full of R2-D2 scalps. Some nerd will likely wander in one day and have a nervous breakdown at the horrible sight.
