My only contribution to the Star Wars anniversary meme

Hell, I don't know if it can even really be called a "meme", but whatever. I'm currently reading the manga To Terra..., which came out back in the 70's, and I was amused to discover a certain robot sitting on a shelf in the background of one panel (click to enlarge):

That's right, R2-D2 toys still exist in the far future! Also, the books on the shelf right below R2 have "Star Wars" and "Jaws" on their spines. It's cool to spot an easter egg like this in a Japanese comic.
