There are some pairs of best friends no Force in a galaxy far, far away should ever tear asunder. Nothing could keep Han and Chewie apart for long. Fate brought the Skywalker siblings together again in arms against the Empire after coming of age and into adulthood on Tatooine and Alderaan. Woe betide the poor schmuck who decides to pry Boba Fett’s EE-3 carbine rifle from his cold, sarlacc-digested hand.
Therefore, if you have a mind to rest your behind squarely on the chest of either C-3PO or R2-D2, do have the kindness to share some butt-sweat with your droid of choice’s counterpart in this ThinkGeek STAR WARS Throw Pillow Set,too. You know this trouble-bound duo would have it no other way.
No cold metal and circuitry here – Artoo and Threepio’s cushy throw pillows are 100% hand-wash-only polyester. One side is blank, sure, but why in the world wouldn’t you honor stalwart catalysts of the STAR WARS saga’s original three chapters by displaying the sides decorated with their torso details? Sure, like the likenesses that inspired them, they’re fairly deathly allergic to blaster fire, lightsabers, and taking shots during interstellar dogfights.
Great news, however: if you need something to punch, throw, choke, bite or possibly smother yourself with at any point throughout the prequels or weep into with joy at every trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS – or any time the Jar Jar Binks PTSD drops in for a visit – these plush companions can take your beating and come back beeping for more.
