I’ve previously featured such beer and sci-fi related items from Star Trek and Futurama. We can now add Star Wars to the list, courtesy of he “official” Star Wars blog. A sculptor by the name of Paul Loughridge, who online goes by Lockwasher, who work primarily with scrap metal bits, created an R2-D2 model using a Heineken mini-keg. He made it for the San Jose Super Toy show and it’s over 16″ tall. The Star Wars blog also has an interview with Loughridge about the robot. Sadly, it contains no beer, but given that it’s Heineken, maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all.
