    WOW . . . is this an all aluminum build?

    Is this going to come with works? Remote control motor, lights, sounds, working periscopes, etc, etc?

    There's probably only a handful of these like that in the world, you going for EPIC R2D2 build?

    Please keep us updated, would love to see how this goes.

    Oh and if you want to sell, I call first place in line! LoL

    What's your build philosophy?

    Do you gather ALL the parts first and then start building or is it more of an active process building what you get as you wait for new parts runs?

    I've heard that waiting for the parts runs is the worst especially with an all aluminum build you are going for. Unless you happen to be one of those rare individuals who can actually fabricate your own metal parts that is . . . :eek:eek

    I always wanted my own little "over weight glop of grease." I will watch this with great interest. I also Love the Verizon commercials where the guy chooses between R2D2 and a cell phone... I would choose R2! (I wonder what kind of upgrade contract that is.... :confused)

    Oooooh, this makes me all tingly in my happy places!

    This is a build that I can only dream of, and must live vicariously through you. Build on!

    That R2 is owned by a member of the R2 Builders Club and a fine example if I must say.
