I used to be stationed near Yongsang Garrison in South Korea. Outside the PX on post there is a mail box painted to look like r2d2. Wish I had a pic, its very reminiscent of this.
From the side of the can:
Edco Disposal Corporation
San Diego, CA 92101
Phone : (760) 744-2700
Maybe they know something about this, if you’re really serious in tracking it down…
Hellz, yeah! I have an R2D2 Droid 2 cell phone. It’s a lotta fun. Especially the “warp speed.” :)
Still need to get that R2D2 bathing suit!!
That site http://www.arngren.net/ Rob posted earlier appears to have your R2D2 stuff. ;-)
Oh dear deity, do that company still operate?!
It was already a gonk droid, so you could say it had model reassignment surgery.
This was from reddit two days ago (where else does neatorama get their content?)
