R2-D2 Homestar Planetarium is now available for pre-order for $91
Sometime in June, Sega Toys had left Star Wars drooling at the Tokyo Toy Show with its R2-D2 Homestar Planetarium. The company has finally put a price tag of $91 for this one and it will start shipping on September 15. This R2-D2 shaped planetarium projects about 10,000 stars onto the ceiling in your living room along with the location of the Death star.
It uses 1W white LED as a light source, runs for three hours on four AAA batteries and stands 21cm high. With a projection range of 1.5-2.3m/4.9-7.5ft, it has a projection area of 1.8m/5.9ft circumference. This one comes with instructions in English and is presently available for pre-order.
