Leak: Photo: Limited Edition R2D2 Motorola Droid 2 for Verizon Wireless

Let’s assume for a moment that the blasphemous exploitative pieces of horrid cinema known as Star Wars Episode I, II and III didn’t exist and focus on the rest of the films in the epic space saga. The original trilogy that was, continues to, and will forever be loved by millions upon millions of people.

Now regardless of who your favorite character is, or hell even if you prefer Star Trek, you’ve got to admit that the little metal midget shaped like a garbage bin and widely known as R2D2 is one of the most loved character in science fiction history. With his little eye ball he can project video messages. With his little arms he can fix house hold object and even space craft. With his little beeps, bloops, and seizure inducing LED lights, he can warm even Darth Vadar’s cold and dead mechanical heart.

Which is why this, the Motorola Droid 2 Limited R2D2 Edition for Verizon Wireless, is going to be one of the most epic pieces of hardware to hit the market this year. We’ve got no word on pricing, but we’re assuming it’s the same as the plain jane Motorola Droid 2, meaning $200 after a $100 mail in rebate and with a 2 year contract.

Not that it matters. Your geek cred knows no bounds, and neither does your wallet, when it comes to Star Wars paraphernalia. Combine this handset with a pair of Limited Edition Star Wars Adidas Superstar Sneakers, and you’ll be straight up gangster. No promises or guarantees as to how incorporating Star Wars products into your daily lifestyle will impact your sex life. You’ve either got game or you don’t.

We can’t all be Han Solo. No matter how much we want to be.

Note: You Lord of the Rings fanatics need to make a pilgrimage to Mordor and hop into that damn volcano so that no one has to listen to you talk about your preciouses anymore.

    Goober… it's "Han Solo" not "Hans Solo".

  • poeky

    Hans Solo? Well, there goes all your Geek Cred.
