Video clip on YourTube showing the cute & loveable little robot flushing a toliet on command.

(yes, you can hear me issuing directions & the order to flush followed by R2-D2 beeping & the sound of a {vulgar term for caca}bowl flushing* - I programmed my R2-D2 to do this and operated him (set him loose) in the bathroom while recording this movie clip).

* I actually flushed the water closet; R2-D2's little arm is far too short for him to have done so himself.

Video clip on YourTube showing the robot dancing to its secret dance program.
Say "Hey R2", "Light beam", then hit him on his dome until he makes that "sad" sound several consecutive times. Then say "Game mode", and finally say "Dance program". R2 will then run his secret dance program -- NOT the Cantina music you'd normally get.

Say "Hey R2", "Do you remember", "Hasbro?"; then say "Hey R2", "Do you remember", "Astromech?"; then say "Hey R2", "Do you remember", "Astromech?" The response I receive is a bit unexpected -- the second time I ask him about Astromech, he screams, shakes his dome, and displays his red "sad" light.

This is the R2D2 Interactive Robot in "Sentry" mode -- in this mode, he acts as a watchdog. Say "Hey R2", then say "Game mode", and finally say "Room guard". He'll flash his white beacon for just over ten seconds, giving you time to make your escape -- then he'll stand guard. If he detects movement, he'll blink his white light as a warning; if that warning is ignored, he'll sound a rather shrill alarm.

To remove him from this mode, tap his dome several times in fairly rapid succession, as shown in the video.

A video on YourTube showing R2-D2 giving some rather non-sequitur responses when he is asked,
"Hey R2!", "Do you remember?", "Jesus Christ?"

Apparently they do not believe in Jesus in the Star Wars universe.
