KITCHEN Star Wars Droid Soy Sauce Bottle (Sale, 2007) $36.98

 NCS Product Synopsis

Original Update: December 28, 2007
«©NCSX» Poor R2. Once a champion on the silver screen who saved Jedi and Rebel hides alike from certain death, the droid has fallen from grace. Instead of traversing the galaxy on woolly adventure after adventure, R2 now serves as kitchenware. To be precise, a soy sauce bottle. A few months ago, R2 was a laundry basket. What's next? A toilet roll? A donut holder? Will the madness ever end and is anyone listening?

   Despite our protestations, the R2-D2 exploitation will probably never end so if we can't beat 'em, we join 'em. NCS shamelessly engages in the peddling of R2-D2 products and we're selling the soy sauce bottles today. Each droid holds about 4 oz of liquid in its barrel-like body and the dome on top twists off for easy access to its innards. We tried filling R2 with water, milk, vodka, and soy sauce and everything poured out with ease. That is, until we tried olive oil which was too viscous to make it through the droid's pour-hole. Each droid measures 5" tall and there are no moving parts so the soy sauce bottles should last for a long time with proper care.
