Joey Fatone Plays Hardball Over Life-Size R2D2

2/17/2010 6:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joey Fatone's life-size replica of R2D2 isn't just an expensive toy -- the robot hero played a key role in a multi-million dollar real estate deal ... gone bad.



The R2D2 happened to catch the eye of a person interested in buying Joey's 12,370 sq. ft., $5.5 million Orlando mansion.

But the potential buyer didn't just want the house, he also wanted the "Star Wars" figure ... and a bunch of other cool stuff in the home.

According to Joey's rep, Fatone drafted a list of all the awesome items in the home that he was willing to part with -- along with the amount of money he planned to charge for each one. Some of the highlights include:

-- The R2D2 ... $40,000
-- Two Peter Pan Paintings: "We Can Fly" and "1st Look at Neverland" ... $2,700 for the pair
-- Video Games: Ms Pac-Man, Galaga, Centipede, and Multi Video Game Unit ... $4,500
-- Old Fashion Coke Machine ... $200

In the end the deal went belly up ... and it's unclear why the potential buyer decided to pass. Maybe The Force just wasn't strong with him.

And thats the truth    

I clicked on Michael Jacksons name on the home page to see if there were any new stories about him and this came up. Why? It is labeled Michael Jackson but it does not have anything to do with him. Maybe because the buyers were interested in the same things that Michael would of liked?

If the buyer would of been Michael (had he been alive) and he wanted all of these things, the media would of had a field day. It would of been in all of the websites/papers. Obviously they are popular items for people to puchase. Makes me miss Michael even more.

On the 25th June Michael Jackson went to Wonderland. You know 'rehab' lol. Ask Randy Jackson. An Ambulance showed up as he was taken there by force. But of course he died (NOT) His Estate was taken off him (hence the weird stories of who's running his estate)as he was unfit at the time. He rehired and fired sooooooo many people in the week he died didnt he lol. No!!!! He lost power as he's not well. Well He went to Rehab. Alice in Wonderland. Murray is/was his Sober coach. Yeah makes sense doesn't it.
