For all you die hard C-3PO fans out there like myself, you are able to dress your avatar as the best known Golden Gay Robot, protocol droid. A perfect addition to your C-3PO collection. Also the best way to show off your fanboydom and your deep appreciation for this O.C.D. oriented character.

C-3PO Backpack (revisited) Makes for World’s Most Obnoxious iPad Case

12 05 2010

I was surfing around, and I was impressed to see the popularity of the plush C-3PO backpack increasing significantly. I was also impressed to see it written about in the same conversation holding a negative note towards apple’s ipad. Here is a direct copy of the article found at: http://gizmodo.com/5537022/c+3po-backpack-makes-for-worlds-most-obnoxious-ipad-case

The best moment of the Star Wars trilogy was when C-3PO was nearly destroyed. Now you can commemorate that moment with the pleather C-3PO backpack.

Just like in the film, the robot isn’t all that useful—he comes with a mesh bag that’s basically only good for carrying himself along with any of his loose appendages. However, you can stuff his cavity with small objects—the iPad appears to be about the max payload—in a manner I like to imagine to be quite painful. When you’re done with the backpack, C-3PO can be reassembled in full as a 3-foot plush toy.


I still think it is a cool backpack, and I strongly suggest you get one. Especially if you have $500 to throw away on an over sized ipod touch, I think you should have this great collectors item to carry it in.
