This has got to be one of the coolest pieces I've ever seen.

Check it out:

Apparently it was limited to 2000 pieces in Japan.

Boy that is one impressive R2 unit!  :o

Did a little search and found this:

R2D2 DVD Player

R2D2 DVD Player Info

Looks like the tag on it is 47,250 Yen, $398. US on sale for 45,000 Yen or $380. US I think.   ???

Spotted one on Yahoo Japan auction: Sunkus Original R2-D2 1/1 DVD Player

That is AWESOME.   ;D  I have to tell my friend Sugu who lives in Japan about this.  He'll want one of those.

And I thought I had seen it all with the Millennium Falcon X-Box. This very cool.
I remember my dream now.

Wow, that is pretty cool.  If it was available here, and a little cheaper, I might actually consider picking one up.  Kind of a neat idea, and the little storage cubby is a nice add on as well.  Thanks for posting that.
