Astromech Workplace: R2-DJ's Dancefloor

10 posts in this topic

Hey there! The Astromech contest seemed fun to me, and an Astromech Droid (I'm pretty sure it's Artoo himself, actually) is actually among the four or five non-trooper SW figures I have, so I figured I'd give it a try. =)

I've decided to join in with a vignette, considering that size doesn't seem to play much of a role in this particular contest. So I give you...

...R2's electric dancefloor!

R2-DJ is a modified droid of the R2 series, originally bought in bulk by an intergalactic trading company who'd modify them and infuse them with musical knowledge modules and some extra record-handling gear. They'd then sell them to rich music fanatics at twice the original price point, making a huge profit even after the investment in new parts.

The company has now given up that particular business and taken to selling pens instead, and only a little more than a hundred functional DJ droids are in existence. Needless to say, prices have rocketed, and now they're only available to the filthily rich, often functioning as a symbol of wealth rather than their original purpose, the creation of new and pleasant music patterns. This R2-DJ, however, is a lucky one, and gets an entire DJ stall of its own. =)

(Wow. It's amazing what fun, little stories you can come up with when you have five minutes and a keyboard.)

EDIT: Oh, sorry! I seem to have misremembered the rules. Would a moderator please change the title to 'Astromech Workplace Contest: R2-DJ's Dancefloor'? =J

Funny entry! :grin: I love the disco Trooper, would be cool to see him doing a Saturday Night Fever pose.

I think the Dance Floor would be better if it were made of 1x1 tiles rather than plates - but that's only a small criticism and not really viable if you don't have the parts :wink:

I think this is my favorite entry so far..."cute" in a good way. Lots of detail packed in a small space.

Thank you very much! I'm very grateful for the compliments. ^_^

@Praiter Yed - I'd have loved to give him that pose, but I don't see how I could do that without using those tubes, and I'm kinda hyper-purist at that point. Thanks for the suggestion, though; I might want to try something similar at some point. =)
