“Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes.”
Well, no Admiral Motti, but unlike Darth Vader and his adherence to the Force, our ancient religion has managed to find that very droid the Dark Lord of the Sith was so haplessly unable to locate… Or, at least, we’ve managed make him out of folded paper and Elmer’s glue.

Building your own R2-D2 dreidel is as easy as printing out the downloadable PDF, cutting along the lines, adding a little glue and shoving a pencil through the middle. Voilá – you’ve got yourself a hanukkah-ready astromech droidel.

…in which case, let the Wookiee win.
