C-3PO was like the Jar Jar Binks of the original Star Wars trilogy. So f***ing annoying. I would have offered Boba Fett a lifetime of free drinks at the Mos Eisley Cantina to catch him and then melt him down to make me a clock. What a shiny, whiny turd. Anyway, if you want a C-3PO backpack Thinkgeek is selling them (this guy could have used one).
Don the C-3PO Bespin Backpack and your friends will think you've just rescued an over-talkative droid from the smelter on Cloud City. C-3PO features light-up flickering eyes and has a zippered storage pocket in his torso.
Based on the famous scene from "Empire Strikes Back" where C-3PO is almost destroyed and has to be cobbled back together by Chewbacca, this backpack is a fully licensed Lucasfilm collectable.
The $60 backpack will be available starting August 25th, which should be easy for you all to remember because it's 13 days after my birthday. And speaking of which: I want presents this year. And none of that "it's the thought that counts" bullshit either, I want expensive ones.
Hit the jump for a couple more product shots.
Thanks to David B., who tried hiring Boba to put a hit on Jar Jar but Boba refused to even get within 12 parsecs of that asswipe.
