Just because they could – Star Wars MP4 player

These might be the droids your ears are looking for

If our previous round-up of the best Star Wars merchandise hammered your bank balance then lock your wallet away now, as the temptation to own this R2-D2 MP4 player – complete with C-3PO ear buds – may be too much to resist.

The iPod-inspired UI, 2GB of memory and button controls may not drive audiophiles wild with enthusiasm, but any geek worth their weight in midichlorians will override the voices of logic and reason to rock this pocketable media-playing droid.

You can nab one from Toys R Us USA for US$45, although it's listed as being out of stock for the time being. Much to the delight of your wallet – and significant other, no doubt.
