As part of Star Wars Celebration last week, Sideshow Collectibles reached out to over 90 artists, designers and friends with a simple task: take the company’s new sixth-scale R2-D2 figure and re-imagine the astromech droid in weird and wonderful ways.


Exclusive: Here's Your First Look At C-3PO And R2-D2 In Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

During GTC 2015, Nvidia gave an inside look at LucasFilm using its monster Quadro M6000 pro-graphics cards to render Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage. The content they showed us happened to feature a certain robotic duo that fans might be familiar with…

New Photos Of Sideshow's R2-D2 Figure Will Make Every Jedi Jealous

As a rule, Jedi aren’t supposed to desire worldly things like fancy name-brand robes, luxury landspeeders and especially toys. But there isn’t a Jedi in our, or a galaxy far, far away, who wouldn’t trade their lightsaber for Sideshow Collectibles’ upcoming sixth-scale R2-D2 figure.

Here’s a real head-scratcher from Bandai. If you’ve always wanted your very own R2-D2, but, only have enough room for the R2 part, there’s now this life-size ‘action figure’ that’s actually only half of the droid. Weird.

If the Star Wars movies taught us anything, it’s that it’s always safer to travel with an astromech droid by your side. And while previous R2-D2-themed suitcases left us disappointed by their silence, this one actually lights up, beeps and chirps away at the push of a button.


This Australian Budgie Sounds Exactly Like R2-D2

For the first seconds I thought it was just a coincidence, but this budgerigar really sounds exactly like R2-D2 down to every squeak, beep and bop. Even the colours are the same. His name is Bluey and, according to his owner Carli Jeffrey, he drives them crazy with it.


Being A Kitchen Timer Is R2-D2's Latest Side Job

As far as resumes for droids go, the skills and experience section on R2-D2’s must be at least 100 holograms long by now. This latest Star Wars tie-in sees Artoo back in the kitchen as a simple $US20 timer, counting off anywhere from one to 60 minutes with a quick twist of his rotating dome.
