Hulkbuster x R2-D2 Mash-up Action Figure Is Pure Genius!

What you see here is a Hulkbuster x R2-D2 Mash-up Action Figure that has been getting some quite a bit of attention on the Internet. As you can see. Artoo here all pumped and set to smash. Those Imperial hoodlums wouldn’t stand a chance if R2-D2 was looking like he has gone through an unimaginable number of intense gym sessions. Or was he on Android-steroid? Whatever it is, I sense the rage in him is very strong. He could squash anything that comes his way. Continue reading Hulkbuster x R2-D2 Mash-up Action Figure Is Pure Genius!

Cold War Era Nuclear Shelter Vent Turned Into R2-D2 By Mysterious Artist

The sight of nuclear shelters is actually pretty sad. However, they were necessary evils during the height of the Cold War era and are found in and around Central and Eastern Europe. Clearly, someone is not fond of these relics of the Cold War history and has took it upon himself (or herself, we don’t know) to turn the air vent of one of the two nuclear shelter in Folimanka Park in the Czech Republic’s capital, Prague, into the iconic and adorable droid from the Star Wars franchise, R2-D2. The result is pretty surprisingly awesome. Continue reading Cold War Era Nuclear Shelter Vent Turned Into R2-D2 By Mysterious Artist

Aerial Imaging Dudes Marries R2-D2 With A DJI Drone, Makes It Fly With Working Camera

You know Luke Skywalker’s trusty astromech, R2-D2, from Star Wars? Yes. The trash can-like profile droid whose cuteness was only recently usurped by BB-8 from the The Force Awakens. Well, if you know anything about Artoo, it can’t fly on its own, but that doesn’t mean it can’t in real life. I mean, Artoo isn’t real, but if men can recreate the cinema little hero, men can also make it defy gravity and that’s exactly what Aerial cinematographer Don Melara and aerial photography outfit, Air Cam Shots, have done. They basically figured out a way to shove a DJI aerial imaging drone into a R2-D2 body and the end result is an Artoo just the way you know it – complete with with moving head, LED lights, and the familiar beeping and whistling sound effect, but with four rotors protruding out of its mid-body that enables it to take to the skies.

Star Wars series of movies aren’t exactly movies that you drink to. Popcorn, probably, but a cold one? Well, likely not a fitting scenario. I mean, it’s not like it is the big game, right? Though it would be nice if R2-D2 can bring you a drink or two as you catch up with the six Star Wars movies before hitting the theater for the seventh Star Wars flick, right? Well, in that case, you will be needing the Aqua R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator. Officially licensed, this full-size replica of everyone’s favorite astromech droid does not pack any tech from the galaxy far, far away. Instead, it has a gut that’s actually a refrigerator, albeit a rather tiny one, that will keep your can drinks chill.

Millennium Falcon, it is not, but come this autumn, Star Wars fans around the world will be able to globe trot in perfect Star Wars style, thanks to a collaboration between All Nippon Airways (ANA) and the now Disney-own Lucasfilm as a cross-promotion for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens film, which will be hitting the theaters this Fall.

Steampunk R2-D2 by Nocturne Armory

as beautiful as the steampunk R2-D2 by artist AmoebaBoy is, it is still an art that won’t move. we don’t blame him, cos’ it is, after all, an art sculpture and something tells us that sculptures don’t usually moves. however, the recent Steampunk R2-D2 iteration by Nocturne Armory, a specialist in designing and fabrication of custom lightsabers, costumes and props, takes the steampunk R2 droid to the next level by blessing it with movements. and so, yes. this frictional Victoria-era flavored droid is operational, presumably through radio control, and comes complete with a rotating translucent dome featuring the steampunk’s mandatory gears and cogs twirling inside (no steam spewing out of it, though). it is really, really an awesome sight (or else, we wouldn’t be mentioning it here, would it?).
