    I think one of these would be cool to have...for a couple of days.

    And then you would start to look at it and say "What the #$%^ was I thinking?"

    Hey, wait, according to the poll, some think it's cool! :eek:
    Is there a doctor in the house?
  5. You know, it's kind of funny. All "Star Wars Nerds" are made fun of because of the fact that they openly love the movies. But come movie time, Lucas will still manage to break box-office records. There's definitely a large number of "closet nerds" out there.
  6. Puh-leeeeeeeeeze gimmie a break.

    I think it's cool, but not ina way that I wanna build one myself, but be honest (at least with yourself) that you would think it would be awesome to have a real deal R2-D2 around the house doing stuff, bet he has the best games loaded too.

    There definitely is some building skill here, geek or not. Check out the full-sized X wing.

  12. As lame as R2 building is, I had to vote that it's cool because I love the movies....and I'm a jedi.... :ninja:
  13. Hmmm, well as vacuum cleaners go, I'm sure it would collect dust well.....

    I wouldnt want one for myself.

    But I do think its cool, the astromechs are the best droids in the movies, and no matter what you think of the idea, the skill that must go into those, they look like the real deal movie props.

    If you have to ask about it being cool... it's not.

    Especially if the other alternative is extremely geeky to the max, times four.

    Formula: 4x Geek = (R2 building cost/Size of Parents Basement x Number of Girls not related to you that have ever seen said basement)^2

    (Geeky and) Cool...I want my own R2. Especially if it can shock people, open doors, transmit Holograms, go underwater, fix anything electronic, and shoot my lightsaber 15 feet in the air. I'd want the translator from the X Wing though, so I could understand what the heck it was talking about.

    [Violins here] I remember being sooooo bummed back in the day when instead the R2D2 action figure I got that stupid R5D4. I also originally got Lando instead of Han, but there you go....
