When hiking across desert planets like Tatooine, it is important to stay hydrated. Quench your thirst with a drink from the R2-D2 Water Bottle. GeekAlerts blogged about the R2-D2 Water Bottle years ago, before it was even released. At that time it was still months before expected availability, which was limited to Japan. However, now that there is easier availability outside of Japan (StarWarsShop ships worldwide) and better pictures, it is worth a second look at this R2D2 water bottle.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, R2-D2 made his way across the deserts of Tatooine on a mission to deliver secret plans to Obi-Wan Kenobi for Princess Leia. Fortunately, Astromech droids don’t need to drink water, or R2D2 may have never made it. Now you can drink water from an R2-D2 shaped water bottle, so you too are able to complete your mission, whatever it may be. The R2-D2 Water Bottle is available for $23.99 from the Star Wars Shop.
Update June 2011: Star Wars Shop is currently sold out of these, so for now you have to look on ebay if you want one.
