If anyone is going to safeguard the miscellaneous bills, lists, postcard-sized print of a nude Estelle Getty oil painting and take-out and delivery menus littering our refrigerator, we’ll accept nothing less than this STAR WARS Droids Magnet Set of R2-D2 and BB-8’s combined metal moxie.
Artoo especially has come a long way. The plucky little Astromech has ridden shotgun with Anakin Skywalker and Ani’s Jedi-legend son Luke so many times, it’s no wonder at all that rescuing the clumsy meat-bags from an Imperial trash compactor, a crash-landing in the swamps of Dagobah and schlepping drinks to Jabba the Hut’s party guests must seem like a dull Tuesday. Any droid that safely keeps Death Star holographic blueprints in honor of the many Bothans who lost their lives to secure them is just the kind of companion we want watching over our Hong’s Hunan House menu until it’s Dumpling Time.
He and BB-8 are both made of 100% tough stuff that sticks to every ferrous surface from the ass-end of Mandalorian iron armor to a fridge door, a certain effeminate counterpart’s forehead, filing cabinet, or kitchen stove. No restraining bolt needed.
