Hi, this is my entry for the Astromech Workplace Contest.

R5-J2 diligently watches over the main Death Star tractor beam, ensuring that it's working at an optimum level.  However, his commendable efforts are about to be ruined by the meddling of a certain Jedi!  :wink: I'm surprised that the main override control wasn't password protected....the benefit of hindsight I guess.  Illuminated by official Lego technic LEDs.

C & C welcome.  Cheers, Robin  :classic:

Excellent work  :thumbup:

Nice one Lobot! I can just hear the tractor beam powering down, DOOOOOOOOooooooo.......

Nice lights as usual man, I love lights on builds as it makes them come to life more. The small basment sceen is great and im sure R5-J2 will be looking foe another job once Vader finds out he let the Falcon get away. :vader:

Good luck with the comp.

Thanks for the comments guys, really appreciated  :blush:

I had this idea as soon as the competiton was announced; it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped but it was really difficult to create a frame that I could hide the LEDs in, without it looking too 'blocky'!!

Cheers, Robin :-)
