As the release date of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”
approaches, so the volume of “Star Wars” merchandise increases, and the latest additions are a 14-liter R2-D2-themed fridge and 32-oz R2-D2 coffee press, both available through ThinkGeek.
Shaped like a bullet, and with a capacity to fit 16 cans of soda (or beer), the fridge is as versatile as any astromech droid, and can keep its contents hot (up to 140° F) or cold (64°-68° F).
Better still, it comes with a top-mounted carry handle and both 110V US AC and 12V DC power cords for home and mobile use, although the manufactures warn against using international power converters — so don’t waste time with your friends taking it to Tosche Station…
And for “Star Wars” fans with bad motivators, ThinkGeek has an R2-themed coffee press, complete with a plunger, filter and dishwasher-safe carafe.
But more than simply serving drinks, could this profusion of new R2-merchandise be telling us something about a possible cameo for the droid in “Rogue One”? Only time will tell.
The next Star Wars film — directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelssohn, Riz Ahmed and Mads Mikkelsen, among others — “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
