ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
how come there is a bullseye on her womprat?
That’s not a bull’s eye, it’s her interfaceport.
I believe that there is a clever comment waiting yet to be made… Something about a “small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port”.
That’s the best I can recall, of a film I haven’t seen in nearly 25 years. :-)
Where can I buy this?
> the sandy beaches of Tatooine.
I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth
and for something emulating a stubby squeaky robot, weirdly….
Can we get a pic of a geeky guy wearing one?
Dizzamn! That’s the droid I’m looking for!!!
She’s my special lady, and she needs a special necklace.
Came here for that, leaving happy.
Huh. Those are the droids I’m looking for.
This IS the droid I’m looking for!
(yeah, obvious, but hey…)
Is it any less awful if I imagine Fred Willard saying that?
Is that Jamie Lee Curtis? Or just a look-alike?
Also, you would think they would make this in an XL size, to fit women (like me) who more closely resemble the body type of the original… ;)
I thought the same thing about JL Curtis :)
Is the model unhappy to see us, or is that just caused by the restraining bolt?
Circa 1983 perhaps
I’m pretty sure this model is Claire from the band, YACHT.
At the least, it totally looks like her. And she has a science blog: http://scienceblogs.com/universe/
If I looked that good in an R2-D2 bathing suit, I think I would smile.
WANT WANT WANT WANT!!!!!! and the protocol droid can wear a gold Speedo.
Somehow, as a slightly portly guy, I think I’m more R2D2-shaped than she is. [Wheedlebleep doodoot?]
Yeah, I think a C3P0 suit might work better. Especially if one is interested in human/droid relations.
It’s like if R2D2 and C3PO mated!
i can see your tauntuan toe
Suddenly my midichlorian pressure has gone sky high.
MUST… NOT… WANT..!
Screw it! IÂ´ll go to the dark side!
I can’t help wondering where the interface port is
I am detecting abnormally high pressure in my injector manifold.
I read these comments expecting a long and pedantic thread debating the existence of beaches on Tatooine. I leave disappointed.
It’s one big beach, without the requisite body of water.
don’t get too excited by that photo…she is actually your sister separated at birth! no wookie nookie for you, only hand solo. ;-P
I think I’ll keep it on manual for a while.
What bathing suit?
[misses the point] The back of the suit is wrong! [/misses the point]
GF says no to R2D2 bathing suit, but would say Yes if there was a C3PO suit *heads to Google*
There IS a c3po one! lol http://gadgetsin.com/tag/star-wars-swim-suit
What’s the opposite of a camel toe?
