As a Star Wars fan, this is essential to my collection. Now, I must begin putting stuff up for auction on Ebay to pay for this!!

...

I think i just went weak in the knees~ But, here's a bad sign... you have to like, sign up for a mailing list in order to personally request how much it costs? Oh well... think they'll take first born as payment?

They could have all manner of innuendo-based ports for USB, DVD, iPod, etc.   ;)

Don't the desperately needy/sci-fi geek market overlap somewhat?

Depending on the quality of the projector, I'm guessing at least $700-$800 Dollars.

Ouch folks, this R2D2 projector will set you back a healthy $2,500 bucks!

It better have a damn good projector for that price. Sure, a good projector can cost upwards of $8,000 dollars, but the technology out there is much better than it used to be, and a decent projector can be had for less than a thousand dollars.

Guess the good stuff costs much wupi-wupi(episode 1 speak for "money" ;))



Check out this little video of R2 in action:

For $2,500 that thing better be able to accurately shoot me my lightsaber when I'm under attack on the Sail Barge. (Of course by lightsaber, I mean "bottle of beer" and by Sail Barge, I mean "sitting on the couch".)

That's pretty much what they said when they covered this thing recently on Attack of the Show.

In my defense... I have never seen Attack of the Show... but I do apologize for unknowingly ripping them off. :)
