If you’re looking for that last-minute holiday gift, ThinkGeek has released two officially licensed Star Wars bowling bag-style purses that are made to look like Boba Fett and the loyal astromech droid R2-D2.
When Princess Leia Organa smuggled the Death Star plans off of her stricken starship, what did she use to carry them? That’s right – she used a large hulking astromech designated R2-D2. The droid was able to successfully complete its mission and deliver the plans to General Kenobi, though it did so with no style or practicality whatsoever. If only the princess had a nice handbag!
The right bag, matched to her wardrobe, would have been a fantastic addition to her ensemble. Hooked on her arm, her new purse could have not only carried Death Star plans, but also a blaster, lightsaber, droid-recall unit, plus all the pins and clips necessary to keep her hair in place (no small feat in any galaxy but particularly in one far, far away).
Perhaps too late, ThinkGeek now has a consignment of Star-Wars-themed handbags, in two different styles. Choose Boba Fett or R2-D2 (which means you can still smuggle the plans in a droid, only a more stylish version). These bags have more than enough room for you to fit whatever you need the next time you find yourself in a club, at the store, or in a scoundrel’s stock-light freighter somewhere around the ruins of Alderaan.
