I just mentioned that the Star Wars Wampa rug from ThinkGeek was finally shipping. At the same time the Wampa rug was announced back in May, ThinkGeek also announced the sweet C-3PO Bespin Backpack. That awesome backpack is now shipping as well.
The backpack is based on the scene in The Empire Strikes Back where 3PO is torn apart and has to be carried by Chewy out of the city to be put back together. The backpack measures 22″ H x 13″ W x 8″ D and has the torso and limbs of C-3PO inside. The eyes of the droid flicker even.
3PO is covered in gold leatherette and his arms and legs attach with Velcro-style closures. When you remove the droid form the bag you can build him into a plush toy measuring 40″ H x 17″ W x 8″ D. 3PO even has a pocket on his back that will store your iPad or any other item that can fit in a slot measuring 11″ x 8″ x 2.5″. You can order your own backpack now for $59.99.Filed Under: Humor, Toys
