LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 Keylight makes Artoo all the more indispensable
Everyone’s favorite Astromech droid, R2-D2, has saved the galaxy a fair number of times, never mind that he is but a hunk of metal bits and pieces with relevant circuitry within without a single midichlorian flowing through its body. Still, it has managed to see the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker, and managed to survive through the Great Jedi Purge and to see Luke Skywalker redeem his father, Darth Vader, at the end of the day, marking the end of the Emperor’s reign (in the movies at least).
Here we are with the $11.99 LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 Keylight which might not save the galaxy, but what it will do is this – it is capable of sending some light to your handbag, allowing you to search through its contents in a cinema or when you have arrived at home and need to dig for your keys. The light can be posed using R2-D2′s legs and feet, and unfortunately, it is not powered by the Force, but rather, it will run on batteries. The LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 Keylight happens to be an official Star Wars merchandise and will be powered by a couple of CR2025 3V batteries.
