    This came up on EBAY in July 2001. Apparently it was fan made and I think the owner / maker said it was too big to hold on to. I don't remember what it sold for, but it wasn't too much. :cry

    I finally found the picture on an old external drive I had.

    Love to find out more about it and see more pictures.

    Does anyone know anything about it?

    :confused

    I wonder if it's actually real, or was made at Lucas and escaped.

    I'm not an expert. Can anyone tell?

    it's hard to tell but the dome doesn't look detailed enough to be the original full scale prop. I amazed no one here has built this thing full size or that there's not more interest in it on the boards :confused

    just found this. The site looks dead and I'm sure I've heard mixed reviews about this outfit but maybe this is the droid you're looking for? (near bottom of page)
