A companion for R2-D2

Postby corelki2005 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:00 pm

As an interlude from my tiffy build I acquired this as a companion to my 1/2 scale R2-D2

Its made by Bandai

the first pic is the internal frame work, the second shows two of the sections added and the third is the completed unit.

I saw the finished model in Japan - it looks amazing ! I think there was also an optional lighting set ?
Cheers

There is Mark but for what Bandai want for this, it is expensive for a battery box, on off switch and two leds, and you need 2 of them. (approx. £25 ea.). even then it only lights up the head.

Am way ahead of you Mark, have asked de-agostini for issues 57 and 100 of the MF so that I can have lots of lights and it will be remote controlled as well(assuming they have back issues available).
