Check out what it can do!

Who else has one of these things, and do they enjoy it as much as I do?

That R2-D2 is a lot of fun. I've had mine for a few years now and it's great.

I saw your video of the R2-D2, looks like fun. I've heard they have something similar as WALL-E; we looked for it during our trip last August but didn't find one.

My son also bought one at SWW this year. He loves it. R2 sometimes has difficulty understanding a command because he might muble or misstate a command, so usually my son will just say "Dad, talk to him for me!"

I remember the SWW event (2003) when they introduced them to the parks. People went nuts for him. I got one myself.

Honestly, picture three or four of these following my commands in the store when it was quiet in the shop, then making them dance a chorus line in the middle of the gift shop. Now that, is entertainment.
Professionals admit to the problem. Alcoholics claim they have no problem.

R2-D2's Easter Eggs

I discovered most of these on YouTube already, except for the Imperial March one. That I wondered if R2 remembered Anakin and Darth Vader at the same time.

Is this the 150$ interactive one? I just picked one up at wizard world chicago 2 weekends ago.. and I cant view youtube from work..

What are the easter eggs? I will search this when I get to the house now..

Anyone else's have problems with the gears in the legs though?

Straight out of the box mine had issues where the right leg didnt want to move.. since I bought it from a vendor there was no type of return policy.. so being A LITTLE mechical.. and boy do I mean LITTLE .. I took the leg apart and found the motor and the gears - luckily it was just that the gears slipped so I worked on it for a bit and got it running.. but after like 2 or three times of spinning around walking forward and moving backwards the gears slipped out of place again.. I havent really played with him since being scared that everytime i use it - Im going to have to take apart and repair his right leg.

Thoughts?

Easter Eggs are little "suprizes" programmers put into programs or games based on some specific input.
