Nerd News: Star Wars R2-D2 Tamagotchi Coming Soon

When it comes to nostalgic toys, there are few things which ring a huge welcome bell more than a Tamagotchi! I absolutely love these virtual pets, and seeing this new one come out as a mash-up with one of the most iconic characters from Star Wars and possibly one of the most well known movie droids of all time, R2-D2 is just seriously special for an 80s baby! I genuinely can’t wait to get my hands on one of these… Or actually that is more accurately that I can’t wait to get my hands on 2 of these as they are releasing 2! One if in a white case and one has a blue case, and whilst both are awesome, I have to say that if I had to choose one, the white one would take it! Although it does look like the blue case is translucent.

They are retailing for £19.99 and are available for pre-order now from Zavvi.

This is more than just a normal Tamagotchi though, its got 9 mini games on it and R2 can get special visitors like C-3PO, Yoda, Boba Fett and Sand Troopers… This little thing looks absolutely amazing!

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
