According to the movies, books, video games, comics, toys etc. the real R2-D2 was a true jack-of-all-trades, but I don’t think he had the one feature that I’m sure most people look for in a droid; the ability to keep a single canned beverage cool. So even if you’ve already plunked down a stack of republic credits for your own astromech droid, you’ll still need to pick up this miniature USB powered version if you want to keep your drinks cool.
And just to clear my name, the product shot was taken directly from the Play.com website, but I’m not exactly sure what brilliant Photoshop artist was responsible for so perfectly comping in that Coke can. And I assume that this R2-D2 USB micro fridge also comes with his domed head, even though it doesn’t appear in this photo. You can get it from Play.com for about 35 republic credits.
