An anti-static toolbox was a type of white-colored box for storing tools. One side of the toolbox had a large square indent topped by a curved lip. The slave Anakin Skywalker kept an anti-static toolbox on a shelf next to the workbench in his bedroom, which was located in his home in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine. The toolbox was on the shelf in 32 BBY, when Skywalker showed Queen Padmé Amidala and the astromech droid R2-D2 the protocol droid he had been working on, C-3PO. Skywalker did not take the toolbox with him when he later left Tatooine to join the Jedi Order.
