R2D2 Ice Bucket With Han Solo In Carbonite Ice Cube Mold

By Andrew Liszewski

Of all the Star Wars characters I think R2D2 gets the least respect, at least in terms of product tie-ins. But I guess it’s mostly because he’s shaped like a garbage can on wheels, and once you remove all of the electronics inside he can be re-purposed for a wide array of demeaning tasks. This time R2D2 will be the hit of your backyard barbecue while he serves as an ice bucket keeping your refreshments cold. As an added bonus he appears to come with a really cool ‘Han Solo frozen in carbonite’ ice cube mold that can be used to make miniature facsimiles of Harrison Ford in hibernation. They’re probably not going to fool Jabba The Hutt or anyone else Han Solo owes money to, but they’ll definitely make you the king of the Star Wars geeks for at least a night.

At one point the R2D2 ice bucket and Han Solo mold were available for pre-order from ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk for about $33, but the item has since been removed. So if anyone knows where to find one, please post a link in the comments.

    Boo. I finally got a hold of someone at Wesco. Here's exactly what she said to me in two emails:

    Hi Nicole
    Unfortunately we never went into production with any.

    Hi Nicole
    Don't think we will end up in production with this item as unfortunately the cost is too high.

    So too bad for all of us, huh? In my second email to her I'd asked about maybe just the Han ice trays, but that got the “cost is too high” response. Sad day.

    This is funny. That sucks that they don't actually make them. Check out my site sometime http://www.woodchippersnmore.com/
