R2-D2At long last, a generation raised on Star Wars can own a droid. Finally! While this particular R2 probably lacks the rapier-like wit that made the original so charming, he nevertheless is pretty cool, obeying 40 voice commands and rolling around your apartment playing tag. Not only that, but he's got a motion sensor that can either function as an intruder alert or allow him to follow you around, almost like a friend. Why, it's the perfect gift for your lonely Star Wars fanboy aunt. (Come on - somebody out there must have one.)

The only drawback is that he's, um, 15" tall. I know, it's a bummer. But it's not as if there's anything better on offer - think of this mini-R2 as a sort of placeholder until you're able to get the real deal.
