Here’s one of those situations that is going to be impossible. How are any of us supposed to pick just one of these awesome Star Wars backpacks? There’s R2-D2, a stormtrooper, and a rebel pilot version, each of which is available for preorder now with delivery in August. The Force will be with you just in time for back-to-school!

R2-D2 is an adorable little rascal of a droid made even more so as a costume hoodie by Her Universe. This tunic-style hooded top is the perfect thing to keep Star Wars fans warm on cool summer nights. It features an all over design with a hood that pulls up to make R2’s domed head.

No one every accused R2-D2 of being a scruffy-looking nerf herder, even when he was covered in dust on Tatooine. The little droid cleans up nicely in this 100% cotton shirt that shows him with monocle, mustache and jaunty bowler hat. I think Threepio is going to be jealous.

These are the heels you’ve been looking for! They’re the work of mikesaurus, the same person who designed these incredible dinosaur heels. He’s even created an instructable so you can have your own pair of R2-D2 versions. You start with a basic pair of white pumps and by replacing the heels with your favorite droid and adding some accents to the front, you’ve created the perfect Star Wars shoes.

We’ve featured the X-Wing Pilot Hoodie from Ecko X before, but now they’ve added new styles and characters to their product line. There’s a track jacket that turns you into R2-D2 complete with a hood that looks like his domed head, or an AT-AT inspired variation with a visored helmet-style hood. You can also show your team spirit with varsity jackets for R2 in a cotton/polyester blend or Boba Fett in a heavier wool/vicose melton blend with PU sleeves.

You can’t tell, but Boba Fett has a smile a mile wide underneath that helmet. These sexy Artoo and Threepio cosplayers were photographed at Rose City Comic-Con in Portland, Oregon back in September by photographer Philip Chilcote.

Strange Vader boner? Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal. The Artoo bathing suit may be no more, but at least we still have photos like this to drool over.

It’s Artoo attire for more formal occasions.
