Well, I wanted to make something out of four R2s but I only used two.  This made a unit that can do double the amount of tasks of two seperate untis and combining them into one housing, making enough room for a generator to power a starship on standby, without thrusters on.  This can make them incredibly useful as well for industrial and commercial companies.  
The regular R2 unit is for civilians and light military, very useful and can be carried in small fighters as backup pilots.

Behold, the R21-D52, overlord of all astromechs, or so it claims.

If I had a private security detail like that, I would be some overlord too.  :tongue:

But what can you make out of several R2 units, including all astromechs?  Only use parts from the astromechs, legs, canister torso and the dome head.

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

Hmm, this is interesting. I have never seen someone put 2 rd-d2's together. I would consider this more a turret or massive gun of some sort. But nice use of rd-d2's.

I don't get it?  It doesn't even really look like an R2 unit anymore, nor can it stand upright.

It looks cool, but not like a droid, more like a heavy artillery cannon or something :thumbup:

EDIT: It can stand upright without the use of blu-tack.

Umm, yes it can.
Mkay :wacko:
But why?
What's so Star Wars-ish about it, except the use of printed R2D2 parts?

I just had an idea, but it seemed it failed utterly.  But can anyone else make a better MOC out of R2 parts?

Anyone who can make the best replacement of my one will win 3 of my own points that I scored with ADHO15's game.  They will be rightfully yours and I'll notify ADHO15.

1st: 3 points
2nd: 1 point

Conditions:
1. Only use the exception of Astromech parts (leg, torso and dome)
2. YOU NEED PHOTOS, OBVIOUSLY!  A GOOD MIXTURE AS WELL.
Good Luck

Nice idea but looks more like a turret than a droid. aI would really like to see something really amazing done with R2 parts but I have hardly any astromech droids do create anything

Great work

Then build something better.

I don't know why it is so hard to read the post that is right in front of you.  In the 2010 rumours there could be pages upon pages to read to find the new pics, but here!  There isn't even a second page.
If there is creativity in the contest then extra points will be rewarded to the winner of th most impressive and creative of them all, 10 points extra.

EDIT: Two astromechs  are enough to do something.  It only takes a couple.  :wink:   I shouldn't get angry with you anyway.
