couple of years back a contest on tig really got me into building r2d2.with stuff that ended up in the junkyard

i had no problem finding perfect parts , but Always seem to be missing material for legs

at this point i have hoarded so many parts , that i said fuck it , lets just build a power droid instead

just untill i find something  :I am stupid: 

here is a pic of what got it all started

I don't remember where I saw the r2d2 you built before, (may have been in the weird cool thread that James post in a lot), but I had no idea the scale that thing was. I thought at the time it was neat being made the way it is, but now I am thinking it is way cooler being that it is so large. Is it scaled to the 12 inch line or looks as though it may be larger than that. Cant wait to see this power droid as you go.

A side question, didn't you recently pull out a jabbas dungeon you were going to finish or something? Would like to see that too if any progress has been made.

Very cool Jimmy. I've been collecting parts to do some robot sculpture myself. I just haven't found the parts that will make a cool torso yet.

Awesome jimmy, love your work mate.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of R2D2 legs is fishing reel handles, there are some awesome ones out there in all shapes and sizes that would be fantastic for the job.
But yours is sensational mate, looking forward to seeing your new one.
