R2-D2 turntable plays vinyl from a galaxy far, far away

It’s an often ignored tale that after Return of the Jedi, Luke used the Force and turned R2-D2 into a turntable and hosted a massive intergalactic rave to celebrate the fall of the Empire. This is how R2 looks now.

Actually, the turntable was a custom job sent into the guys at Nerd Approved by a reader named Jessica. She told the geek site that “Tech, lights and all mechanics are by Tex Nasty at Remix turntable lab. Paint/Theme art by Ed Hubbs at full blown kustoms.”

There’s no word on whether the turntable automatically plays back R2’s bleeps and bloops over the music, but who can tell with today’s dance music anyway?
