After posting about the R2-D2 architectural desk lamp a while ago, the folks from Thinkgeek sent me one for review, and I have to say, this lamp rocks! Naturally, my 11-year-old got his hands on it the minute it arrived at our doorstep. It is now sitting on his nightstand and it looks totally beautiful (see picture above.) Oh, and no, the First Order Stormtrooper helmet isn’t included, but you can get one from Thinkgeek as well (I purchased mine back in September 2015.)
For those interested in getting one, I have nothing but good words to say about the lamp! It is a solidly built product with a heavy base that prevents it from flying away the minute someone touches it. Here are the official technical specs:
- Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
- Uses 40w max incandescent Type A bulb or 13w max compact fluorescent (not included)
- 60 inch long cord with in-line on/off switch and 2-blade Type A polarized plug
- Input: 120V 60Hz AC only
- Dimensions: 25.5″ tall x 7.8″ base diameter
- Weight: 5.4 lbs.
