After over a year of work, and tons of dollars of aluminum goodness.....I have spent the last week doing some painting. Nothing is attached yet, so I had to use some masking tape to hold it on, but you can finally tell, it's starting to look like R2!

There are some hot nerd girls that would rape him because he made this thing. This is why he's doing this. Take it to a convention and he won't have anything left in his balls.

It will have two primary functions.

1. I want to take it to conventions and have fun with it.

2. The most important one, I am a type-1 Diabetic. I was diagnosed when I was 5 years old and spent a LOT of time at Children's Mercy Hospital. I primarly want to take him down there, and let the kids see him, take some photos, and brighten their days......what kid wouldn't want a visit from R2? Besides a trekkie......lol

Are you actually going to make him mobile? You should have him tow the kids around in a wagon.

yes, he will be mobile, with working lights, sounds, and a rotating dome. He uses two scooter motors on a speed controller, so it's very likely he'll be able to pull a wagon if I can rig up a harness. He'll weight around 200lbs when he's all done.

Lucasfilm endorses all members of the club I am in. They even provide us with studio quality sounds for R2. Also, we are not allowed to take any money off of him visiting places.

The machine work is NOT done by me. There are members of the group who produce these parts, and often times they send them out to a machinest who does the work. Unfortunately, when a part becomes available, it takes about 5 months to get it. Also, it is so heavy because I have every part as an aluminum piece, their is cheaper and lighter ways to do it.
