    1:1 R2 and 3P0



    With the 1:1 R2 completed last year...the wearable 3P0 costume has been started.

    For R2: He is all metal, cost about $9K to make, and still not done. I plan to add a periscope, light up front holo, and moving front holo.

    For 3P0: His head just got chromed and should be shipping back to me this week. His Torso just shipped after a year wait. and his shorts and feet are here. All I need to do now is wait another few months for the hands/arms and feet to ship, and then I'll have a wearable costume just like in the movies. total cost of 3P0 will be about $2000's

    The plan is to hopefully bring them out to local episode 7 events. I already told my contacts at CBSFM and WPLJ that if they needed them for any contests or events, they'd be available.
    R2 was a big hit at the radio event last year.....with band members from I believe Ed Sheerans crew asking all sorts of questions about him.

    How many languages will C-3PO know?
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    Cool stuff. Did you design these? If so, my hat's off to you.

    I like Bill Evans. He had said on the air that he loves scuba diving because there's no people underwater! I love that.

    Interesting work, Shredder.
