Love the work on this. I don’t remember seeing it when it was originally posted. Thanks to Indy for the pump.

8–D-8 has been a great part of the Book of Boba Fett.

Yes, it's a great sculpt/kit and I'd encourage anyone on the edge to look for one or show interest in a new run - it's a really fun addition to the collection.

Here is mine:

I still have to finish the mounting for display so that I can easily switch on the eye LEDs, but the painting/weathering is complete. I tried to match scratch and paint fleck details from the original from achives and exhibit photos. I used vintage photodiode grills:

Like I said it seems to be a complete lottery what's inside... THEN if you do find copper ones, the orientation might be incorrect (for 8d8 anyways)
Out of 12 copper ones I only have 4 which were correct for my own 8d8 head to be screen accurate... I was a bit miffed about that!
