Golden Robot USB Drive looks familiar…

by Ally

It’s funny how you can see something and it just so strongly reminds you of something else you’ve seen before, like this very subtle Golden Robot USB Drive that I just can’t seem to put my finger on.  Every time I glance at it I just hear this annoying voice yammering off a bunch of ridiculous survival statistics.  It’s just the strangest reaction.  Clearly this robot is nothing more than a gold robot and that’s it.

Alright, so it’s obvious they were just trying to dodge having to give George Lucas some royalties by not coming out and calling this robot C-3PO.  What’s odd is that this is actually a little nicer than some of the C-3PO toys I’ve spotted.  By just skipping out on the facial features it makes this one look a little more well made.  A lot of times if you don’t think you can do something right, by just skipping that entirely it makes things look a whole lot less cheesy.  You can pick up the 4GB USB drive for $25 through Gadget4all.

Looks nothing like the Star Wars robots at all. Your comment is clearly a bias remark this report. It’s like me generalizing an entire culture because of one or two individuals- very very wrong. But clearly these gadgets reassemble nothing like C-3PO unless your half drunk or just taken weed. If anything, the look more like Lego people.
