    New member here. My name is John. I been doing my research here for a while now. I'm really impressed with everyones Fetts. I have PM'd Bobamaker about obtaining one of his buckets, so I can get started. I apologize in advance for any annoying Newbie questions I may have. I'm also a member at the R2 Builders Club, and I'm about 1/4 of the way done. I always wanted to start a Boba costume/prop first, but I started the R2D2 first for my son.

    Anyway, I'm glad to be a part of a great community, and I hope to speak with all of you soon!!!

    Welcome. Artoo is a cool project. I'm kinda the opposite... I had planned long ago to make an Artoo, but it ended up that I got around to Fett before that one. Not that I'm bothered by that - Fett is awesome.

    Thanks for the welcome guys!! I agree, Boba Fett is the best!! My son is actually wanting me to make the Fett NOW!!!!! LOL It's great when your kids develop the same interests as you.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!!! Most appreciated!!

    I can always post a thread in another section of my R2D2, and I definitely need to take newer pictures. I've gotten a little more things done in the past month or so, and I'm still awaiting more parts to arrive. I guess I'll post 1 pic here for now, but I guess I can start a new thread in a day or so. My R2 is also not 100% screen acurate with colors. But I'm not as picky with this project as I will be with my future Fett. Hope you enjoy. Look for more pics later if anyones interested. Thanks again!!!

    Thanks for the kind words!!! It's really great to get a nice welcome from alot of you!!! R2 is coming along...just wish I had the overtime at work to get at least legs and feet and a foot drive for it. If I get at least half way done with it, It will be easier to focus on my ESB Boba.

    Thanks again. And, looking forward to chatting with all of you!!

    Cool!!!!! Have any parts yet? And thanks for the welcome!! If you are just starting in the R2 Club, feel free to ask me any questions!! I feel its better when you talk to certain builders one on one, rather than nobody on the forum there to answer questions. Cool people though. Anything I can do to help, just ask!!

    Me too, but I heard they're expensive to build.

    Maybe when I'm rich I could get somebody to make me one!

    Tell me about it!!! LOL
    That aluminum frame was $750 alone!!! And all of the electronics and whatnot make it costly. It's been almost 2 years since I started!! Whew....the aluminum is expensive to say the least!!
