We chat with members of the R2 Builders club to learn about the process of building your own droid--the materials, power systems, and electronics needed to get started. Chris James of the Bay Area club chapter opens up his own R2 and shares the custom controls and components he's designed to make his droid come alive!

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.
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...

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.
