When you head out to a Japanese resturant, sometimes the little bottles restaurants have to hold the soy sauce resemble little robots. I half expect them to walk across the table and pour themselves. And what robot is more appropriate to have a themed soy sauce bottle for than R2D2, the lovable droid from Star Wars.
Not only was he immortalized in a promotion by the postal service as the R2D2 mailbox, but now he might be popping up at a sushi bar near you. You can even grab your own for $18. — Andrew Dobrow
