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

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

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. =)
