This R2-D2 unit can even take on Vader

Posted by Trent Nouveau

R2-D2 may have saved the lives of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Return of the Jedi, but this tricked-out iteration of the astromech droid seems capable of taking on even the Dark Lord himself.

The cool robot replica - designed by Brain M De Vitis of UCLA - was spotted by Matt Hawkins of Fort 90.

It reportedly boasts multiple ports and at least 10 consoles, including:

  • Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Nintendo 64
  • Nintendo GameCube

  • Playstation 2

  • Playstation Portable

  • Sega Genesis

  • Sega Dreamcast
  • Atari 1800
  • Xbox
  • PC

The droid also features a working projector (for games), as well as functioning switches and vents to prevent overheating.

Awesome, eh?
