A while ago, ThinkGeek had a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag that was originally a joke, but ended up being an actual product on their site.
This is a product on the same vein, also inspired by The Empire Strikes Back. It is a backpack with C-3PO in it. It is just like the scene where Threepio is blasted to bits, and has to spend most of the rest of film in a backpack on Chewbacca’s back.
In this case, this is a hollowed out C-3PO that you can store stuff in. For example, you can shove an iPad in there.
This is a licensed Lucasfilm collectable, but in this post Star Wars age, what cheezy piece of merchandise isn’t these days?
You will note how you can take C-3PO out, and I am assuming put him together without the Wookee or droid.
Is it just me, or does this remind me of a blow-up doll. Perhaps an ugly blow up doll. Perhaps if the lady who was given the golden skin makeover in GoldFinger was an ugly blow-up doll, this would be it.
Well, you should be able to get this on the ThinkGeek website here for a price of about $59.99.
