I went to the Midwest R2 Builders gathering yesterday and just wanted to share some extraordinary "droids" that Master Builder Tom had at his home...

Also present with his famous purple droid (Aaron Alston is shown signing R2-S5's purple dome in the current Star Wars Insider in Bantha Tracks) was fellow RL and Delta Squad member (soon to be Renegade Squad) Darryl Sorensen.


In the photos...my R2 is the one with the leg and foot "issues"...lol...
I am doing some rebuilding...and hit some snags...and had to put R2's upgrades to the side...I plan to get back to him this winter...

Anyway...
enjoy the "show"...


The R2's present... (note Gort standing in the background)






Some of Tom's other "Droids" and neat stuff:




His pride and joy: Johnny 5 - the most expensive robot ever replicated....lol...and ...yes...he does have a Wall-E ...but it was elsewhere yesterday...

Ah, Dr Smith, the guy you loved to hate from Lost in Space.

I know he was in the show to introduce a lot of the drama by getting Will Robinson into bad situations or trying to sabotage the Jupiter II, and do other stuff, but seriously? I kept wishing the family would just ditch him on a planet or shove him out an airlock.

Nobody in their right mind would keep him around, even for the comedic value.

"Warning, warning! Danger Will Robinson!"
