ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I love this design for an R2D2 Death Star. Sebastian sez, "This is what the rebels should have done with those stolen plans."

But it finds planets instead of blasting them.
I know this is cliched but “slow-wanking-motion.”
and then they could load R2′s robot brain into it for the OS and it could be a LOVE star!
It looks like you could do your laundry with it.
That’s no astromech droid … that’s a space station.
I’m imagining it to R2D2 scale though and therefore not that scary. A bit like the original Megatron from Transformers. I always thought he would be a foot or so tall as he turned into a usable handgun. I figured that was why he was so angry all the time, because he was actually the same size as his action figure.
It reminds me of this, which is also awesome -
Presumably it has a design flaw round the back which permits unauthorised access to a potentially embarrassing ‘feature’.
I always imagined that if you could pop out the spherical part of R2, the other half would look like the death star. I hope they make that toy some day.

In this 1945 Life ad, a giant baby exacts a vicious turnabout-is-fair-play revenge on his mother, who failed as a parent an a human being by using the wrong skin-care products on him.
