New York has it's share of droid builders too.
I myself am in Central NY a bit north of Utica.
We get a fair bit of winter up here.
I'll have to remember to take some 'Hoth' pix of my droid in the driveway come November.
My R2 became operational Oct. 30th 2008. Took him right out the door to a Halloween party at my kids school
A few days later 'we' got on the evening news while attending the Syracuse Heroes Expo.
Note to self: Comb hair before being interviewed for TV.
Awesome R2 unit! I won't be in Echo Base much longer sadly and I don't even have these droids anymore because I had no place for em back when I moved down here over 2 years ago but I did build these two monsters for fun! Only the treadwell survived...he is now semi-retired in Rhode Island at a Kamino Base members house. I will be honest I do still miss that little guy...I'll build another some day simply for fun as I have no electronic or motor skills to speak of. I used a fishing line to invisibly pull him behind me when I took him out for events. It was the ghetto way of doing things but kids still liked him.
