The aim of this layout is to relate, into 6 acts, the initiatic journey of R2-D2 which, simple astromech at begining of episode I, will become a key character of the whole story and acquire its own personnality into the 6 movies of the saga. It is this personnality integrating human character (including some obstinacy) which explains its popularity and make it the most celeb droid in a movie.
I will present you 6 scenes (one per movie, from act IV to VI and from I to III like the movie into 6 posts ending with the whole layout) relating this journey : one as mosaic, one as a large sculpture and 4 smaller scene at minfig scale forming a large layout as a tribute to the little droid.s been
This layout has been made for the last SeTechnic Star Wars Contest annouced here in french.
Act IV : Leia's messenger
One of my prefered and emblematic Star Wars scene is the one where Leia records her help call to Obiwan into the Blockade Runner before it is catched.
This makes R2-D2 particularly essential for the rebels because it has also the plan of the Death Star into its memory.
The central part will be used to build a large mosaic which will becom the background of the layout :
it consists of 4 panels having 32x70 studs and a tiled white border surrounding the whole mosaic.
By using hinges to assemble the panels, the mosaic is curved and self-standing.
It looks nicer when reduced in size :
This mosaic has already been presented into this topic and I have taken new pictures for this new presentation.
Next, act V "Misadventure on Dagobah" ...
