This is probably the coolest case mod I’ve ever seen. Surprisingly, it beats the R2-D2 cake for R2 related geek stuff I want. There doesn’t seem to be any real information about how the guy made it or what he used, but I’m assuming he is part Jawa and just scavenged parts as he roamed across the desert, bartering with moisture farmers.
There’s a ton of nice attention to detail and I don’t see any restraining bolt, so maybe this thing can roam around his house. Of course, if you had an R2 unit, you would need to childproof all the electrical outlets, so he isn’t having sex with them while you’re at work. I bet he isn’t even lonely without C-3PO at all. Goldenrod is a prissy droid, with an overactive mouth. Where as R2 is a true geek’s droid companion.
