Droid challenge

Postby duck » May 14th, 2017, 6:00 pm

Bandai has made four droid figure kits so far; C-3PO, R2-D2 & R5-D4, R2-D2 & BB-8, and the battle droid. .JPG was kind enough to give us the Gonk droid. I propose a challenge of building (or painting) none hero droids based on these kits, or any other 1/12 kit I may have missed.


[Moderator edit: I spell-corrected "challenge" for you, it was annoying me. LOL ]

I'm in. I've already got plans for a C-3P0 kit and an R5 kit. I've just been needing an excuse to build them.

Would it be just 1/12 or could you be persuaded to expand it? RetroSF makes a really nice 1/72 Probe Droid that I have thought about doing in locations other than Hoth.

Also, if you can wait about 3-4 weeks, I'll have a 1:12 Chopper kit coming as well. And a restock of the Gonks.

Geeze, I've gotta start collecting 1/12 droids! Never built one.

Don't forget the Anigrand 1/144th Probe Droid. :twisted:

I forgot K-2. :(

Expanding to other scales is fine by me.

Chopper! Looks like I need to acquire more funds.

I'm open to setting a start date, feed back is quit welcome on this part. A little friendly competition usually gets the creative juices flowing. I have 2 R2's, a spare BB-8 and just received another 3PO kit. I know what I'm doing with the spare 3PO, but the others I can't decide. So many different takes on R2 units!
