The best moment of the "Star Wars" trilogy was when C-3PO was nearly destroyed. Now you can commemorate that moment with the pleather C-3PO Bespin Backpack.

Just like in the film, the robot isn't all that useful--he comes with a mesh bag that's basically only good for carrying himself along with any of his loose appendages.

However, you can stuff his cavity with small objects--the iPad appears to be about the max payload--in a manner I like to imagine to be quite painful. When you're done with the backpack, C-3PO can be reassembled in full as a 3-foot plush toy.

You can preorder the backpack at ThinkGeek now for $60.
