    We (the company I work for) does Mac support for the American History museum in DC. We're there every week and were informed about a screen used C3PO and R2 they had in the resoration area, that they'll eventually put on permanent display. I was able to secure some behind the scenes, up close pictures of some of the C3PO parts, like the hands, head and black rubber undersuit. The R2 pictures didn't look like anything I hadn't seen before.

    I know there are plenty of pictures floating around of both, so I don't know if there is much demand to see this stuff or not. Let me know, so I can prepare and host the pics.



    Ok, here we go... sorry for the delay.

    First the 800 x 600 versions...

    Cool, thanks for sharing these.

    That's an ESB and/or ROTJ Kenny Baker R2. Note the tops of white boots down by the feet.

    Interesting how the gold chrome has faded differently on most of the Threepio suit compared to the neck piece.

    Sure. I was going to do it for you, but I don't have an ID over there and am not embarking on that endeaver quite yet. I am skinny enough, though.

    I think he's from ANH although the side foot plates look ESB styled. (Ya got the grooves in the horseshoe section of the legs, hinges on the opening panels, ANH looking vent on the front with thin slats and other bits 'n bobs.) :) Not sure if they made any more Kenny units for ESB?


    Beautiful shots, are you going to be able to access to these props regularly with your line of work, or was this a once in a lifetime opportunity??

    wonderful......you kissed R2's dome? Man...so close to a legend....impressive. Thanks for those awesome pics. Can you get more? Maybe some real close ups?
    You guys think the C3PO looks authentic? I mean...screen used? Does this look like a wasted chrome finish? Hmmmmm..... I can't say for sure. Nevertheless.....it looks beautiful. Wish I had one for my living room.

    hehe the guys at the R2Builders group are going crazy :lol
    but they want MOOORE , info or pics if you got any.

    it's one of the R2's from the sandcrawler scene, and not seen very often.

    any bit of info is welcome, even the blurry pics :)

    You could be right...the lack of the black tubing for Kenny's legs threw me. I guess they just replaced it with the white boots.

    I did not personally take these pictures (wish I had), if I did there would've been waaaay more pics and much more up close shots. Not mention pics with me wearing the C3PO head, etc. One of my co-workers who services the Smithsonian's computers, informed me of these and was able to get the pictures from an employee who works there. That's really all I know right know. I'll try to get more info asap, since we're out there every week. I'll see if I can get my guy to beg and pled to see them personaly and take pictures.
