I was wondering if anybody knew or could give a good guess of what type of tubing they used to connect the skirt to the feet? I'm attempting too make this droid and can't find the tubing for the feet.
It would appear the legs are actually bolted to the body as well. Note halfway up - you can see a bolt going from the body to the leg.
Alex, I'm not sure this was part of the original design for R2. I remember those "tubes" always confusing me as a kid. If you watch when R2 moves/rolls, those tubes are not there. Just food for thought.
