Star Wars R2-D2 Watch Makes Droids Seem Classy

Attention: this is your weekly Star Wars merchandise update.

R2-D2’s dome on a watch face. That’s pretty much the extent of it. You’ve got a couple of watch hands with tips that look like R2-D2’s blinking lights. It’s a collector’s edition, too. I have no idea what makes it a collectible. I’m guessing it’s because it’s a piece of Star Wars merchandise. So if you collect Star Wars merchandise, you can collect this, too. Also, if you are a Star Wars merchandise collector and a compulsive completionist, I think you have a very expensive hobby.

The Star Wars R2-D2 Collectors (sure?) Watch is available now for pre-order on Entertainment Earth for the seemingly unreasonable price of $210. It’ll ship sometime in April of this year.

This has been your weekly Star Wars merchandise update.
