Take R2D2 To Lunch

Thermos R2D2 Novelty Lunch Kit, Star Wars with Lights and Sound

Robots don’t eat much. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t make for excellent dining companions — especially when they carry your lunch. The Star Wars Thermos R2D2 Novelty Lunch Kit with Lights and Sound looks to not only lend a helping hand (or perhaps, some fancy retractable gadget), but he also apparently supplies mood lighting and pleasant conversation. Or beeps and whistles as the case may be. But no worries if you don’t understand the little helper, at least he won’t be talking with his mouth full!

…To Boldly Go Where No Spice Has Gone Before

Westland Giftware Star Trek Command Insignia Salt and Pepper Shakers

Trekkies, rumor has it, are an obsessive bunch. So too, perhaps, are the salt-spillers of the world. Clearly then, there can be only one solution for the Trekkie who feels the need to toss a pinch of salt over their left shoulder after knocking over the shaker. Westland Giftware Star Trek Command Insignia Salt and Pepper Shakers to the rescue!

Standing at the ready on the table top, the pair are held in place with a small magnet. As for the conundrum of how salt spilled on the floor is different than salt tossed on to the floor, well, let’s just say they are and leave it at that. Kind of like how Trekkies had to learn to accept the reboot.

Domino’s Japan Star Wars Pizza Promo

Star Wars Special Set from Domino's Japan includes lightsaber utensils and an R2-D2 delivery box.

I would order Domino’s Japan just to get it delivered in an R2-D2 box. Throw in some lightsaber utensils and I’d order it again to make sure I could get both the fork and the spoon (a spoon??). But eat Domino’s and watch Star Wars Episode One The Phantom Menace? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. One can only handle so much!

Star Wars Concepts Rejected From The Kitchen

R2-D2 Portable Wet Bar and Han Solo In Carbonite Popsicle Mold

On a day that comes once every four years, it somehow seems appropriate to take a look at what could have been. That is, what could have been in the kitchen. Action Figure Insider compiled a list of rejected Star Wars paraphernalia. Not surprisingly, there are a few kitchen-specific items.

Who wouldn’t want the R2-D2 Portable Wet Bar or Han Solo In Carbonite Popsicle Mold? Or perhaps you yearn for those “legends of the kitchen table,” salt and pepper shakers. In a world overrun with so much Star Wars merchandise, the question isn’t so much as why when it comes to these potential products, as it is to why not? I know I’m looking forward to summer and would appreciate a Floating Landspeeder Can Koozie!

Click either image to see the full collection that somehow made it into the garbage compactor.

The (Candle) Light Side Of The Force

Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick

Even Jedi Masters need to sit down and have a nice meal every once in a while. Dining in the glow of a light saber sometimes does the trick, but if it accidentally gets knocked over, sparks will fly. Luckily for all, there is the Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick. It won’t provide the same awesome illumination as would a real light saber, but then again, it won’t cut the table in half if it falls over.
