    R2-D2 Smasher class Battle Mech

    So I thought this series was finished, but apparently not haha! This is a re-colour and Mod of{"iconly":0} I bought this set for my kids when it came out and I've always admired the way it captures the stance and feel of the Hulkbuster in such a simple and efficient manner. When the - Mini polybag&category=[Star Wars][Mini][Star Wars Episode 4/5/6]#T=S&O={"iconly":0} came out I couldn't help but feel that this was a mash-up that needed to happen! He stands a touch over half the height of my other mechs but I think he fits right in with this motley crew haha! I tried to get this ready by the end of Mech-tober but ran out of time. "R2-D2, be reasonable about this!!!" by Greg Dalink, on Flickr R2-D2 Smasher Class Battle Mech by Greg Dalink, on Flickr R2-D2 Smasher Class Battle Mech by Greg Dalink, on Flickr I had a lot of fun building this guy and I hope you like it!
  2. LEGO did a great job in re-releasing R2-D2 as 75308, but there are still some parts not the same as the real one. So I've made the followings: - changed the outlook of the leg's fuel cells - flushed the third leg outlet panels (front and rear) by 1 plate - completed third leg outlet panels by adding the left and right sides - switched the position of the buttons and pillars of the legs (same as the 2012 version) - changed the outlook of the middle exhaust vents - moved the tools compartments further outward and made it taller - filled the gap between the head and the body - more SNOT outlook - push-to-open the lightsaber cover 195 extra pieces are required. Spare parts are also needed, about 80 original pieces will be left. Instruction available at Happy building. Have fun and enjoy!
  3. Simple MOD from the official 75308 set, here is my R2-M5, a color variant from the famous R2-D2 astromech. R2-M5 by Veynom, on Flickr All features are maintained. R2-M5 by Veynom, on Flickr And here is a table indicating some other possibilities: R2-D2 Color variants guide by Veynom, on Flickr So let's see what is easily possible: Very easy: red, blue, dark blueish grey, reddish brown and black: A couple of part swaps may be necessary, but it will not affect the color design, model integrity, or play features. Tan, yellow: very minor change of design. With the release of the Daily Bugle set, the missing yellow part 11458 is now available. Easy (minor loss of color design) Orange: Some simple swaps to replace non-existing parts but the dish at the top of the head will be light blueish grey. Dark red: Part 11458 will need to be replaced by the white version. The dish at the top of the head will be light blueish grey Bright light orange: Part 11458 will need to be replaced by the white version. Somewhat easy: (more visible change of design) Bright Pink: Part 11458 will need to be replaced by the white version. The dish at the top of the head will be light blueish grey AND the front opening dark blue curved slopes will need to be replaced by 3x1 curved slopes assemblies. The head may be less sturdy, particularly during the assembly, due to the lack of corner plates (2x2) Medium Azure: it could be easy, but the lack of 1x1 brick modified with stud on side forces us to find another solution. I need to investigate. Dark green: More difficult, particularly as 2x2 plates do not exist in that color (on top of all the above issues). Next: we should start seeing more color variants using the below: A white head; A DBG or LBG body; Blue or read bodies; A classic space version ? Feel free to make your own version. If someone knows where to find the Studio file for that set, I would gladly grab it to experiment as well.

    [MOC] Honoring the Monolith

    Introduction; This MOC is my first attempt, specified in landscape, of this size. The Story; "... In a galaxy far far away, somewhere in one of its corners, there is an unknown and isolated planet. In the center of the area where life has been developed, lies its oldest structure. A stone column with unknown carvings. But this is not the only peculiar thing about it. Every year, it lights up on its own and an abrupt hum is emitted. The next moment, something magical is happening! It's like the whole planet is coming alive - a heady aroma is overflowing everywhere, the flowers bloom, animals wake up and everyone enjoys this magical moment. This day has arrived, and all three tribes of the planet have gathered to celebrate the day of life. Everything rolls pleasantly, until a clank and a thunder shakes the calm atmosphere that prevails ... " 1. Honoring the Monolith MOC by George Patelis, on Flickr 2. Crashing Site 3. Crash Crater 7.

    [MOC] Encounter on Dagobah

    This is a set TLG has not made since 2002, and I feel it really needs to be remade. The false 2016 rumor, which turned out to be Yoda's CW Jedi Starfighter, was particularly disappointing. Here is my take on it. It could very well be a $25 set. You can remove the roof to see the interior. Plus the walls fold open! You can see Yoda's bed and his pot of food. Here's the view from the entrance :) C&C Welcome! Cheers! VaderFan2187

    I couldn't wait till the brick built R2-D2 came out or if I ever have the chance to get one. So I used the instructions to make a R4-P17 copy with the astromech head from the UCS Jedi Starfighter. I love the design off that little R2-D2! I just don't like the vertical grill up front, i have to change that...any suggestions? a dark red tile is to simple, i think... Thanks for watching!
  11. Dear Star Wars, LEGO, and R2-D2 Fans, I know this is late but 3 days ago, on August 13th, 2016 Kenny Baker passed away. For those of you unfamiliar with this amazing man, he is the man who controls R2-D2 from inside the droid. This forum is all about LEGO and Star Wars, so I decided to use the flawless combination of the two to pay tribute to Kenny Baker and his work as R2-D2. I hope you all comment and show your respects in LEGO. Rest in Peace Kenny Baker.
  12. You can tell by the "lower" Lego Ideas project # that I've been thinking about this for some time: -- Anyway, people keep asking for instructions. I realize it's a longshot, but the "easiest" way for instructions to happen would be for it to be a real set, so here goes nothing... Note that this stands about zero chance as a "normal" set (obviously). We'd somehow have to convince Lego that there's enough interested people that there could at least be a limited run of 500 or 1000 "Special Limited Collector's Edition" sets made - which means that the price would have to necessarily inflated even more! So think well above 10 cents a brick. Clearly there's a market for collectors to pay thousands of $ for a model they like. The UCS Falcon is reselling for $3500 - I've seen one sold even! Aiii! Other non-Lego movie collectables and art sell for thousands as well. So: There's a market, but it's not the normal Lego market. Clearly most retailers are unlikely to be able to stock and sell a set this large, so it would have to be a special collector's market. Speciality shops can probably sell them, but that all adds to the overhead. Additional, a "small" run means that the per-unit production costs go up. So instead of expecting this model to sell for $2000 or so, we need to show Lego that people are willing to pay twice that. I'll make suggestions as an update, but the comments of the supporters will need to help demonstrate that there does exist such a specialty market. Even so, Lego is going to be hard pressed to do this. That specialty market may exist, but it's not Lego's forte. They may need to contract with others as they do for some of their smaller special runs and non-Lego merchandise. Even so, this isn't as big of a return as tens of thousands of a cheaper set, so they might not feel it's worth their time.
  13. Hi, I'm wandering around the web looking for sites that like Lego, so I'm a newb here. I have a Lego Ideas project, the Lego Disney Wonder Cruise Ship, at so please support it :) I also have some blog posts about the Lego Wonder Cruise Ship here: - it's a cool story, so check it out. There's a link to the YouTube about it too. More recently I've started getting some attention for my full size, primarily Lego, moving R2-D2, L3-G0. As far as I know he's currently the only full size working Lego R2-D2. (I've Bing'd and Google'd and haven't found another, though there are some other good builds). L3-G0 the Lego R2-D2 got his own blog at feel free to check that out too, and I don't mind if you share the link or tweet! :) The first blog also has a few other miscellaneous projects, time lapse build of a Lego Seattle Space Needle, a few random photos, and observations about the variance in brick sizes... - Kresty
  14. This is my MOC of the Infinities Comic Vader vs. Artoo & Threepio It tells the end of Episode V and Episode VI with R2 and C3 as Luke and Leia Vader: "See-threepio, Artoo never told you what happened to your creator." C-3PO: "He informed me sufficiently. He told me you killed him." Vader: "No... I am your creator!" C-3PO: "No... no... That's not true. That's impossible! The odds against you being my creator are..." Vader: "Search your feelings, You know it to be true." C-3PO: "Noooo!! You see, sir, shortly after the Jedi were wiped out, my memory was erased. So that could explain why I'm having difficulty verifying your statement." Artoo then comes in with a lightsaber and battles Vader
  15. Six months ago, I introduced you a mid size R2-D2 in the Aboard Invisible Hand layout for the astromech contest. Now, after a few days of work with LPub, the building instruction is ready.
