Excuse me sir, but that R2 unit is in prime condition. A real bargain!

Been trying to make an Artoo for a while now, but could never get a satisfactory body that was shaped well, and light and sturdy enough to get the propper tilt. Then I recently found videos from other bucky-fans describing "The Ultimate Shape"

With a few tweaks to get the cylindrical body, and the angled center foot, the rest came together quickly and I had finally achieved my bucky Artoo!

Now to give him an X-Wing to sit in...

Oh Lord. Bless this, thy Hand Grenade. That with it thou mayest blow thine enemies to tiny bits, In thy mercy

Here's a fun one. Just playing around and made an interesting little shape. A friend commented that it resembled the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

Loving the comparison, I added the signature cross "pin" to the top.

And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats...
