Sideshow Collectibles stopped just short of encasing Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker in fiberglass when they created these life-size C-3PO and R2-D2 collectibles. Due out later this year, the authentic figures are powered by lowly AA batteries and have working lights. They also make sounds from the movies and utter the characters' classic catchphrases, like "beep" and "whistle" and "OVER HERE!" All this can be part of your private Star Wars collection for the galaxy-sized price tags of $5,950 for C-3PO and $5,450 for his smaller, quieter counterpart.

Oh the decisions we have to make in a modern society. I wish for simpler times, the chamber pot, the destitute chambermaid, the unemployed actress willing to do anything for a screen test. Oh history, why doest thou vex me!
