It’s no secret to fans that R2-D2 is the Star Wars‘ equivalent of a Swiss army knife. Seriously, this feisty little droid is the best toolbox in the galaxy! His equipment includes a circular saw, fire extinguisher, holographic projector and rocket boosters just to name a few. The image below says it all. ThinkGeek, the creators of some of our favorite R2-D2 gadgets, has added yet another accessory to his toolbox: a screwdriver. Of course, no ThinkGeek exclusive is complete without one of their witty product descriptions:
R2-D2 is basically the best multitool ever. So it comes as little surprise that he’d volunteer up his body to be the base of this screwdriver kit. This Star Wars R2-D2 Screwdriver set includes 3 forged steel bits: 1 slotted and 2 Phillips-head. And you won’t find him when you’re walking the aisles of your local Home Depot, trying to figure out where the heck they put the screwdrivers. Since we created him, he’s a ThinkGeek exclusive.
ThinkGeek is known for their ingenious adaptations of this “extremely well put-together little droid”. Thanks to them, R2-D2 has been turned into a suitcase, trash can, measuring cups, lunchbox, car charger and even a soy sauce dispenser. The R2-D2 Screwdriver is available here and retails for $15.99, a real bargain!
