    You seek the R2 Builders. Head on over to Astromech.net

    Thats where you will find tons of resources for an R2; both static and functional. Perhaps you could build a static one for now and add functionality later.

    There is a site for everyone... Be it Ghostbusters, droids, predators or mandos. There is even a yahoo group dedicated to WALL-e, created over a year before the movie was released!

    Sure thing!

    Everyone should join up... R2 building is the best (excluding Fetts I should say).

    I'm gonna try to start 1, but it'll be a slow go project I see that the dome is the hardest part to source or most expensive

    Hi A'den, see you found another of my posts

    oh, I found a dome for my astromech...
    http://www.amazon.com/Aspects-Super-...092126&sr=1-27
    gotta get it, then a pvc body, so the body is gonna be the most expensive part... like $100 shipped. Not going for screen acurate anyway gonna do custom (see my Mando bucket to know I like custom)

    Adonian, I'd highly recommend upgrading from that aspects dome. They have become basically obsolete in the droid building world....

    Accurately shaped and sized domes are now available for under $100 for the first time. http://astromech.net/?q=node/189

    Try an 18 inch birdfeeder dome for the dome and an 18 inch concrete form tube (fancy for cardboard tube) and then add greeblies and attatch legs and so on. :P
