ThinkGeek debuts C-3PO Bespin Backpack and it’s awesome

I would bet that 99.9% of you have watched every one of the Star Wars flicks several times. ThinkGeek has unveiled what may be the coolest backpack in the history of backpacks. The thing is called the C-3PO Bespin Backpack and it’s modeled after the mesh bag in The Empire Strikes Back that Chewbacca totes a ripped up C-3PO around in.

ThinkGeek’s backpack is so cool it hurts a little. The droid and his severed limbs are covered in gold leatherette and he is stuffed with plush fiber fill. The mesh pouch keeps all of the parts safe and the eyes of the robot light up and flicker.

When all of the parts to C-3PO are assembled, the droid is over 3-feet tall. The limbs are held on C-3PO using Velcro-style hook and loop fasteners. The thing is licensed by Lucasfilm so no suits will be coming. The backpack measures 22″ x 13″ x 8″ and the droid measures 40″ x 17″ x 8″ when assembled. A zippered pocket will even hold your iPad or another gadget. You can order one up now for $59.99.
