The Construction of a Kick Ass R2 Droid

It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything Star Wars related.  And for that I apologize.   Recently we came across this awesome project where a “real life” R2 droid was built.   Honestly I had no idea people were really building these things but I have to admit it’s really bad ass.

I mean the damn thing moves, lights up, and is aesthetically better than the real R2D2.    Hell I wish there was a mod to make my computer look like one of these (actually I’m sure there is already).

Check out the construction of the droid after the jump…..

Thanks to Instructables for the photos.  Wait until you see the final product below!
