‘Star Wars’ Fans Name The Droid They Would Most Like As A Companion


If there is an object in the star wars galaxy that fans covet the most is the lightsaber. Virtually everyone who saw the first, second, or third series of trilogies as children harbors a desperate desire to own the weapon of the Jedi (or the Sith, let’s be honest). But let’s be practical, these things are likely to get you into a nasty bar fight in your local cantina, then they’ll help you kill a Galactic Potentate. Wouldn’t you prefer a nice droid?

Reddit users recently answered which exact droid from the decades-old Star Wars saga they’d rather own and the responses were surprising. Of course, it was no surprise that many preferred a handsome, reliable Astromech droid modeled after R2-D2. And who wouldn’t want a toolbox/mechanic combo with a movie projector, jet pack and bonus fire extinguisher system?

But some answers definitely came from beyond the outer rim. One user just wanted one of the squeaky Death Star mouse droids. Maybe they often get lost in their own house?

Another wanted a Gonk droid. This makes sense if your phone is constantly hitting five percent power.

Of course, some users only had to go dark. A user thought they had an Imperial security droid (or an ex-Imperial like K-2SO from A thug) would be good.

And another wanted an IG assassin model. Well, they take orders well. But we are worried about his neighbors.

But the Astromech trumped just about anything else. Surprisingly though, R2 got his money’s worth, and not against someone with poor motivation either. C1-10P, better known as the Chopper of the rebels the anime series gave the OG R2 plenty of competition. The rag-tag unit, formed mostly out of spare parts at this point, can often save the day for The Ghost’s crew, but he’s probably the grumpiest Astromech in the entire franchise.

But of course, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But if it’s broken, the fan favorite to fix it is always R2-D2. Hey, if he’s good enough for Anakin, Luke, and Rey, what more info do you need?
