Cool Stuff: This R2-D2 Lamp Finally Gives The Droid Some Flexibility

There's plenty of Star Wars stuff out there to clutter your house with, but it's always nice when some of those items are also functional as well as representative of the sci-fi saga you love. That brings us to this cool new R2-D2 desk lamp that's now on sale. Basically, it looks like Luxo from Pixar Animation had a baby with R2-D2. We almost said Luxo Jr., but that lamp is just a child and doesn't need to be having any droid/lamp babies.

Anyway, check out the R2-D2 desk lamp after the jump.

Here's the R2-D2 architectural desk lamp from

There's a part of me that wishes the top dome part of R2-D2 actually had some texture and raised elements. How cool would it be if light shined through his lenses? But the design is still adorable enough to make a nice addition to your desk. However, the price tag is a bit high at $59.99. Here are the specs from the product page:

  • Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
  • Uses 40w max incandescent Type A bulb or 13w max compact fluorescent (not included)
  • 60 inch long cord with in-line on/off switch and 2-blade Type A polarized plug
  • Input: 120V 60Hz AC only
  • Dimensions: 25.5" tall x 7.8" base diameter
  • Weight: 5.4 lbs.
  • Sadly, no hologram of Princess Leia is included, but maybe if you're inventive enough can figure out a way to do that yourself. Of course, if you were clever enough to do that, you could probably build a better R2-D2 lamp yourself. Never mind, just buy the lamp.
