Admittedly i’m not the biggest Star Wars fan, I haven’t actually seen Return Of The Jedi and most of my knowledge of the universe comes from the Family Guy parodies. Now, I don’t want to get into an argument as to why, but simply put… I wasn’t alive when they first came out and I didn’t see them properly until I was 15, at that point they just seemed dated to me so I never connected with them the way a lot of people did.
But… I am a HUGE fan of kitsch pop culture novelties and obsessive fandoms (just ask me about my Simpsons related tattoos). Which is why I’m hugely excited for Thinkgeeks latest and greatest creation the R2-D2 Coffee Press. Unfortunately we don’t have personal assistant droids yet to bring us our cup of coffee in the morning, so you’re going to have make it yourself, so why not make it in a french press shaped like everyone’s favourite bleeping & blooping little droid. Holding 32oz of liquid – enough for four cups – he’s happy to caffeine up your whole household.
Available for pre-order now, exclusively through THINKGEEK, they’ll be shipping just in time for Christmas.
