A Life-Size, Robotic R2-D2 Figure Is Coming Our Way
We already have a life-size, voice-controlled BB-8, but let's not forget about the adorable little robot who started it all. Sideshow Collectibles is coming out with the life-size R2-D2 figure of your dreams.

The waist-height toy will not only be a movie-accurate figurine, it will be an actual robot, complete with R2's signature lights and sounds. We don't know too much more about it yet, since the toy isn't actually ready to be sold. But if that's a good enough pitch for you, then it's available for pre-order starting on September 1. 

But if you can't wait until it's ready, Sideshow Collectibles has tons of other geeky toys to adorn your home. Some of their bestsellers include eerily accurate Suicide Squad figurines, this Wonder Woman figure that looks exactly like Gal Godot, and a Force Awakens-era Han and Chewie set.
