our hearts are warmed by the helpful droid that communicates in a totally incomprehensible digital noise. we know R2-D2 has as much fans as Star Wars itself has, judging from the host of official and non-official R2-D2 themed stuff that we have seen and heard. well, the time has come for this cute little drum-shaped droid to return the favor by giving us earthlings who are not from a galaxy far, far away, some helping hands. meet the Star Wars R2-D2 Folding Armchair, the official licensed Lucasfilm collectible camp chair (some called it director’s chair) that is constructed from study nylon that allows it to be used anywhere, anytime. it even comes with a nylon shoulder bag for lugging along for your next road trip or camping adventure. we think it goes perfectly well with the DIY R2 BBQ smoker, though it will be another few months more before you could really be doing that but hey, a little heads up wouldn’t hurt. does it? the Star Wars R2-D2 Folding Armchair is available exclusively via one of our favorite online store, ThinkGeek for just $39.99 a pop.
