Hooded sweatshirts crafted in the vein of a comic book hero or movie character are bit old news at this point.  Nevertheless, we’re still happy to report on them and generally speaking the more novel the better.

While the Stormtrooper hoodie will always have a place in our heart, our hats (and other sweatshirts) are now off thanks to this R2-D2 Hoodie from Mad Engine apparel.  They’ve also got a Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Stormtropper version in the works, all of which will release August 29th.   The fleece lined hoodies will not only set you back $70, but take a notch out of whatever game you thought you had.

Us?  We’ll stick with the Burton Sleeper Hoodie; utility vs nerdom.
