In case you haven’t noticed, the whole Star Wars universe is one giant merchandise trap. No wonder a search of ‘R2D2’ on the top right (go ahead try it) produces a whopping four pages worth of older posts. This latest from a prominent online retailer is a folding armchair that comes with an R2D2 print. Other than reminding people what a Star Wars geek you are, it can’t really do much else other than fold if you need it.
The best part is it unfolds just as fast, anywhere. This might have been a little extra fun if it came with a C3PO beach umbrella plus a cooler shaped like an escape pod. Like on the parched deserts of Tatooine, remember?
The good news is it costs $39.99. Not bad.
