I finally got up the courage to begin the build and I'd like to take you along with me! For this R2 build, I am using the amazing community at the R2 Builders Club for help and inspiration. I went to www.astromech.net and found a wealth of information about material types, build plans, templates, and even access to specialized parts vendors. There are tons of different build options, but I chose to build the bulk of the unit out of styrene and cover it with screen-accurate aluminum panels. I loaded up the CAD files into my CNC. These files were given to me by an awesome builder named Mike Dempsey, and they were ready to cut. Josh cut the different pieces out of the specific thicknesses of styrene and I got busy assembling. To do this, I had to print out huge 1-for-1 templates to get the proper placement for each cut piece. I scored the placement lines onto the frame sections and used CA glue to bind them together. Using the same CAD files, we cut the leg assemblies out of more styrene. The legs were a bit more robust because they would be holding the weight of the entire R2 unit. Many of the sections were built out in sandwiches layers and ribbed joints. The legs will eventually be bolted onto the frame with some 1/4-20 bolts. This step was particularly odd for me. I had the choice of making the intricate details on my own or using the craftsmen at astromech.net to mill them out of aluminum for me. Obviously, this commercial route is more expensive, but the upside is that I have beautifully made, screen-accurate components that are ready for paint or powder coating. I ordered the dome, the outer skins, and many of the iconic R2-D2 widgets from vendors at astromech.net and I giggled like a 3-year old when they arrived in the mail. We could not make these parts as perfectly as the different vendors did, and I'm happy I went this route. This project is going to take a while. It is a life-long dream to have my own R2, so I didn't want to rush the process and end up with a sub-par droid. In the next video I hope to have the rest of the body, mainly the other leg, the electronics, and some of the doors completed. Thank you for following along with this magically fantastic build from a galaxy far, far away.

Bring R2-D2 to life with the Star Wars Smart R2-D2, an interactive and programmable toy droid! You can play with R2 on its own in three modes, or download the free app and turn your smart device into a remote control, interact with favorite Star Wars characters, and go on missions with R2 as you program the toy to do different things! Check out how easy it is to play with R2-D2 in this video! For full review and shopping info► https://ttpm.com/p/20684/hasbro/star-wars-smart-r2d2/?ref=yt Product Info: Bring the original lovable Star Wars droid to life with the Star Wars Smart R2-D2. This is a programmable and interactive toy droid that will respond to your voice, your hand movements, and your favorite music. Plus, you can use a free app to control R2-D2’s movements and actions. Without the app, there are three modes of play, and you turn the knob on the front of the droid to switch between the modes. In Stationary Hang-Out Mode, talking, playing music, clapping, and waving your hand in front of R2-D2 elicits different movement and sounds. You can also press the knob button on the front of the droid to watch R2-D2 dance to his own music (a very droid-y version of “Cantina Band” from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope). In the second mode, Mobile Hang-Out Mode, R2-D2 will talk and roam around. The droid will also still respond to sound and hand motions. And in Guard Mode, place R2-D2 in a quiet location. If the droid detects sound or movement, its alarm will go off. When you download the free iOS and Android Smart R2-D2 app, you can do even more with the droid using your smart device’s Bluetooth connection. Use the app’s remote control to send R2-D2 moving forward, backward, left, and right. You can even make the droid turn its head and make different emotive sounds. From the app’s gallery, pick a holographic image of a favorite Star Wars character, and R2-D2 will react to hearing the character’s voice or hearing a sound effect played to represent that character. You can also program the droid to do a variety of different movements and sound effects through the Programming section of the app. The Missions section offers programming tutorials to help you understand how to make R2-D2 do different things, and as you complete each mission/tutorial, you’ll unlock more effects and even uncover the Death Star plans. ✮SEE MORE TOYS✮ BATMAN V SUPERMAN: http://ttpm.com/p/17136/mattel/batman-v-superman-batman-voice-changer-helmet/?ref=yt YO-KAI WATCH: http://ttpm.com/p/16703/hasbro/yokai-watch-noko/?ref=yt TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES PARTY WAGON: http://ttpm.com/p/16637/mega-bloks/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-party-wagon/?ref=yt ✮SUBSCRIBE TTPM Toy Reviews✮ https://www.youtube.com/c/ttpm ✮SUBSCRIBE TTPM Baby Gear Reviews✮ https://www.youtube.com/c/ttpmbaby ✮SUBSCRIBE TTPM Pet Toys & Gear Reviews✮ https://www.youtube.com/c/ttpmpets ✮SUBSCRIBE TTPM First Look Toys Unboxing✮ https://www.youtube.com/c/ttpmfirstlooktoys ✮FOLLOW US✮ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TTPMOfficial Twitter: https://twitter.com/ttpm Instagram: https://instagram.com/ttpmofficial/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ttpmofficial/ Snapchat: TTPMOfficial: https://www.snapchat.com/add/ttpmofficial ✮FOLLOW TTPM Baby✮ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TTPMBaby/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/TTPMbaby Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ttpmbaby/ ✮FOLLOW TTPM Pets✮ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TTPMPets Twitter: https://twitter.com/TTPMPets Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ttpmpets/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ttpmpets/ Disclosure: Toys reviewed by TTPM are selected by the TTPM editorial team from submissions from manufacturers who provide the samples for review consideration.

Obi-Wan begins teaching Luke and the audience the ways of The Force. This scene marked the foundation and backstory for the rest of the saga. Good stuff. Star Wars Blu-ray 2011
A Full-size, home built on the cheap replica R2D2. My very own Star Wars Celebration London! A labor of love! This is my budget build R2D2 fairly inaccurate and in no way built to R2 Builders club spec although based, in part, on some of their plans. Thank you to Alan (you know who you are) for answering my many questions about R2. I made my own 3D model detailed parts in 3DsMax to fit my build and printed them on a Makerbot 3D printer. The rest was made from MDF, Acrylic, Spray Paint, xmas lights, Fruit-Shoot bottle tops, Milk bottle tops, drainpipe Pringles tube and a B&Q Lampshade! Doghouse media ltd noticed the build and featured it on their Star Wars special during release week of Star Wars The Force Awakens on Channel 5!!: http://www.channel5.com/show/how-star... Here is the build blog: https://www.facebook.com/JCulley3D-R2... https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/r2d2-bu...
So it begins. Our quest to build an R2-D2 Replica. As we are learning as we go and there are no real plans that we can find out there we decided that we would help you by working through the issues and discoveries so you can use us as your blueprint. We have also set up a Facebook page that has heaps of photos of our build so far and also tons of reference photos and video links to keep you moving.

Lucas reveals that the entire story of Star Wars is being recounted a hundred years after the events of Return of the Jedi by none other than R2D2. People don't realize that R2-D2 is the most underrated hero in movie history. Without R2-D2 The Trade Federation would have prevailed. Obi-Wan, Padme, Anakin, Luke, Leia, Chewbacca and Han all would have been killed at some point in the series. What?! You don't believe it?! Episode 1: R2 fixes the shield generator on Queen Padme's ship. Without that act, there is no Luke or Leia. R2 also turned off young Anakin's autopilot which in turned facilitated the destruction of the Separatist droid command ship. Episode 3: R2 saves Anakin by destroying buzz droids that would have undoubtedly ripped the ship apart. Episode 4: R2-D2 Carries the Death Star plans for the rebels and gets the "Help me Obi-Wan" message to Luke. R2 also saves Luke, Han, Leia and Chewy from being crushed in an imperial trash compactor. This is just a fraction of the numerous times in which R2-D2 saved the day in the movies!.....that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface on the number of heroic acts performed by R2-D2 during the clone wars animated series. An article by David Harris points to the fact that R2D2 is the only droid that we know about, that has never had his memory wiped. C-3PO had his memory wiped at the end of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith due in part mostly because 3PO can't keep his mouth shut. Ok. I know what you're thinking. "If that's the case, why didn't R2 tell Luke who he was or that Vader was his father?" Well smart guy or gal.....in the Lucasbooks Legends Trilogy Dark Nest, Luke discovers the identity of his mother due to a malfunction in R2-D2. R2-D2 kept the knowledge of Padme's death and Anakin's turn to DARTH Vader as part of his owner protection protocols. In every Star Wars film except The Force Awakens Artoo is extremely prominent in every aspect of the story. BB-8 and C-3PO could have told R2 about the events of The Force Awakens. Therefore, he could still continue his role as narrator of the story. This would explain why the little astromech is always so heroic. R2 saves the lives of just about every important character in episodes 1-6 and he rarely makes a mistake. In a saga that’s full of flawed characters who screw up constantly, Artoo is always right. Maybe because he’s the narrator. In the final scene of THE FORCE AWAKENS, who do we see watching Rey as she leaves the Falcon and begins to hike those insane heart pounding steps? With Chewy at his side..Why it’s none other than R2-D2. Do you think that R2D2 is the narrator of Star Wars and what are your thoughts about R2 being the most underrated hero in movie history? I mean you do have the creator of the franchise saying so. Let's talk about it below....and all you people under the age of 12 I appreciate you because you are some of my biggest supporters, but do not and I mean DO NOT compare BB-8 to R2D2. BB-8 was a welcomed addition in THE FORCE AWAKENS. I loved BB-8, but he can not even begin to bare the weight of R2-D2's jock strap. BB-8 is a Stan (Eminem reference) and R2's number 1 fan. Oh my goodness please don't compare R2 to BB-8 in the comments below.
