Darth Vader Adult Costume
The path to power is paved with long years of study and practice. The most ordered and disciplined of minds are needed to arrive at this place in full balance and with the Nirvana-like awareness that, all along, you never needed any of this power. It is at this state that you have become a master of yourself, one with the universe, and you can be secure in letting the power ebb away while you sit in silent contemplation of the long journey you have taken. A true Jedi Master.… Or you can actually use that power that you’ve worked so hard to gain! Sure, there is something to be said about sitting in weird chairs in near silence next to several other odd looking aliens… frog people, any number of folks with head tails, and that guy that you’re sure you’ve seen going on anger-ridden tirades using all sorts of expletives. How controlled and well-balanced do you think that guy’s mind really is, anyway? None of that sounds like the path that you’ve set in front of yourself. No. Let’s go with the power and use it to make sure that the people we care about will be safe forever!Well, as it turns out, that little green guy probably had a point as your body has become rather crippled and scary. But, your power is in tact! We’ve got you covered, literally, with this Darth Vader Adult costume. Your armored jumpsuit is made of comfortable polyester with robotic graphic print on the front and back. Your magnanimous cape will flow as easily as your power and stay connected through the mighty power of the Force… and Velcro. And, fear not, your lava-burned face and rebreathers will keep you strong (and concealed) in the face of friends and family, a mesh covering to keep them from seeing the pain in your eyes. You’ve worked for the power. It’s time to use it. But, just in case you haven’t worked out your telekinetic abilities, yet, you might want to pick up a nice red lightsaber, too.

Star Wars’ R2-D2 Droid is Real… and You Can Buy Him! by Cheapskate Charles
Fans of George Lucas’ Star Wars movies have dreamed of the day when robots like R2D2 and C3PO become a reality. I mean, wouldn’t it be great to have a droid in your own home that could look after you, entertain you, and serve you?
How long do you think it will be before real R2 robots roam the halls of our own homes. 100 years from now? 50 years? 20 years? How about… today! Real, working R2D2 units are beings sold to consumers for home use!
So what does a real-life R2-D2 really do? Well, unfortunately he won’t be able to fix the hyperdrive on your spaceship– but that’s only because you don’t have a spaceship, do you?
What R2D2 can do is listen and respond to voice commands, serve you, and entertain you! Just like George Lucas’ Artoo unit, my home version uses real sonar to navigate around the house! He obeys commands, beeps and whistles, flashes his lights and swivels his head. He even has an extending arm for serving drinks!
I’m sure you have a million questions going through your head, so let’s review them.
Q. Does R2-D2 need batteries?
A. Yes. He’ll need 4 AA and 4 D batteries.
Q. What words does R2-D2 recognize?
A. Rd-D2 will have a different reaction to 30 words. Some of the words R2 knows: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hut or his best friend, C-3PO, Princess Leia. He also responds to voice commands.
Q. What voice commands does R2 know?
A. Some of the words include: Go on patrol, Behave yourself, Switch off, Turn around, Go forward, Turn Right, Turn Left, Plot Course, Light tag, Answer this, Dance program, Room guard, and lots more. You can say, for example, “Artoo! Turn around! Go forward three units! Turn Left!” He’ll obey your every command. Sometimes Artoo will act a little crazy. When he does this, just say, “”Behave yourself!” and he snaps out of it.
Q. Give some examples of what R2 does when I say the names of Star Wars characters?
A. If you mention Darth Vader, R2 will shake with fear. If you mention Princess Lein, R2 will emit excited whistles.
Q. What games does R2D2 play?
A. R2 can play tag, follow you, or find a person in a room using his infra-red sensor.
Q. Does R2 talk?
A. Sort of. He beeps and whistles, just like he does in the movies. He can also answer yes/no questions. You will quickly learn that his sounds represent words. He has a beep for “yes.” A different beep for “no.” A different beep for “I don’t understand.” He’ll also play dialogue from Star Wars movies.
Q. Can I use R2 on a table?
A. You can use R2 on a table if you place the wheels in the locked position.
Q. How much does R2-D2 weigh?
A. About 7 pounds.
Q. How much does R2D2 cost?
A. The price varies depending on where you buy it. At the time I’m writing this, the best price I can find online is $119.95.
Q. Where can I buy Artoo?
A. This Web Page (www.BulldogGadgets.com ) has a link to a well-known, national R2-D2 distributor. If you’re thinking about buying Artoo, check it out.
Q. What if I still have questions?
A. If you’re still wondering about Artoo, you can send me your questions by using the contact link on my Web site ( www.BulldogGadgets.com ). I’ll do my best to answer any questions you might have.
