Sure, it would be cool to have a Sail Barge tray atop our favorite astromech as in Return of the Jedi, but if Artoo could keep Luke’s lightsaber on ice inside of his body, why not twelve beers? Er, I mean SODAS. Wouldn’t want Disney to think we’re doing anything un-PG. Besides, until they come up with one that has a freezer inside, we’re storing our vodka elsewhere.
Somehow, though, I doubt this R2-D2 is as handy with stairs and booster rockets as his onscreen counterpart in Attack of the Clones, which means he’ll work best if you have smooth hardwood floors.Wouldn’t want a small thing like shag carpeting get in your way of letting a droid enhance your laziness, and turning YOU into the overweight blob of grease. Also, in the event of a nuclear attack, your Indiana Jones action figure can hide inside.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
