The saddest thing about this is that it isn’t even the weirdest bit of Artoo merchandise I’ve seen in the last 24 hours: There was an ceramic R2-D2 bong on Amazon.com yesterday. Can’t say I’m shocked that it seems to have vanished overnight. (via)
In addition to hiding out in Star Trek, now we have word that Artoo shows up someplace in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. If this continues then he’ll be shacking up with some cheap starlet and things will just get all Beneath the Dome again. Resist, Artoo! Resist!
That is all.
And it’s kind of disappointing. Highlight for spoiler:
During the Drill Machine sequence as the Enterprise comes out of its barrel role amidst destruction of the other Federation ships above Vulcan, we cut to an interior Enterprise bridge over the shoulder of Kirk that is looking out through the front viewscreen. In space, R2-D2 is floating in the debris from about the top middle of the screen to the bottom right.

$10K to make one? Wow.
