R2-D2 Trashcan


This is an absolute must for every Star Wars fan. Hurry though — they go out of stock within days.

Trash is just not that cool. Not only can it be dirty and odorous but it’s simply low-tech and boring. At least that’s what we used to think… until we saw this amazing R2-D2 Trashcan and learned to love trash. This stylish trash receptacle is imported from Japan and is an incredibly detailed replica of R2-D2. Step on R2’s center “foot” and his dome swings wide to collect your expired TPS reports and leftover wookie dung. In fact here at the ThinkGeek rebel base we’ve been generating extra waste just for the pleasure of disposing it inside our favorite droid. Everything was going great until we emptied the trash and accidentally discarded some Death Star plans… then the Rebel Massassi Outpost on the fourth moon of Yavin got destroyed and things just went downhill from there.

Mini-Review Character Counter

Some of our more verbose users have noticed that we limit Mini-Reviews to 500 characters (due to space constraints). However, until today, we didn’t give users any way to see how close to the limit they were. If a Mini-Review went over the limit, we unceremoniously chopped it off at 500 characters, destroying a user’s painstakingly-crafted opus. Awful!

From now on, you’ll at least know when you’ve reached the limit by keeping an eye on the Character Counter — found wherever you can enter Mini-Reviews. It’ll turn red when you approach 500 characters, and let you know when you’ve exceeded that limit.
