R2D2 Measuring Cup Set is as Cool as it Gets

In what can only be described as one of the more interesting combinations of collectibles and kitchen, the folks at ThinkGeek have come up with an interesting take on one of the tiny droids from Star Wars.  The Exclusive Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set - Limited Edition is bound to be a hard to find type of deal and makes one of the more interesting gift ideas for that person that has everything already on your list.

It comes with four measuring cups: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and full cup measuring sizes all in various parts of R2's plastic frame.  The only real question is would anyone actually use it to measure anything?  I would probably put it in the kitchen, only to have it find itself stashed into a cupboard when I'm not home.

The details are cool and the Star Wars gift idea thing can never be overdone in my experience, and when the things start to invade the kitchen with an element of functionality, it's just a great day to be a geeky collector of things.
