So here's my attempt on a Droideka. As many of you have said before, a combination of all three official versions so far would wield the best result, so I've tried that. Unfortunately it's not system-scaled, but I like it!
Here's my progress. Please comment on which features you like best from each so I can try to implement into a final version.
V3 (Current stage).
As you can see, I aimed for a more brick-built version than the excessive clip-arms of the official releases, and I think the curves work much better. Plus, it actually rolls! Sort of. When the head bends down over its front it
reates enough of a curve to flatten out the black dome underneath for it to roll. Sorry, I don't actually have the dome in brown or even dark grey, so black had to do. As for the tooth/claw pieces I only had them in white. The
egs are the only part I'm really not sure about (apart from the obvious colours). I don't know whether to keep the same configuration or replace all the bent technic connectors with replicas of the back leg. That one needs
to be hinged so it can curve enough to complete the ball formation- it looks wrong otherwise.
I'll post a comment later with an LDD screenshot of my droideka in an ideal world where I have all the parts I need... but for now, here's my final shot: Jedi and co. battle it out against a supersized destroyer.
"Ohze tenoes! I is 'splodes!"
Enjoy, and please give feedback.

I think the plating needs to be a bit thicker, two studs wide instead of one. It might need to be remade completely, but the Droideka currently looks a little thin.
