I’ve had to take a little break with working on wall-e because life had gotten in the way as well as my other R2 need immediate attend, tweaks and fixes. Over the past month I’ve re-design and built my Wall-E treads. My original gear design was never working properly so I built s all aluminum design which works (I dare say) perfectly.
Sweden has finally had its first ever ComicCon in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm. During the preparations weeks prior its been hard to get info from the organizers but somehow it all came together for an electrifying and fun experience. This event also marks the first time that the 501st Nordic Garrison and R2 Builders Sweden had totally different locations at a major event. We the R2 builders did an awesome job with our display with not stop questions about our hobby and the R2 Builders organisation. I also had the honour and opportunity to hold a 1 hour panel/presentation about R2 and the work involved in building one. This presentation was so popular it had 200 plus onlookers and standing room only and was by far one of the most popular panels. In a word or less it was AWESOME! Anyway here are some pictures from the humbling weekend ;-)
I had started this R2-Q5 project about 2-3 years ago but because of life getting in the way I’ve put this up on the shelf on and off but now finally I took the time this summer to focus and to finally get him done. Because this is actually my 3rd completed R2 building was straight forward and its amazing how much the previous builds have taught me. Anyway, here he is. I’m adding the final details this week and he will be having his premiere event this coming weekend. This will definately be my final R2 build as I have a bunch of other and even more exciting projects in the pipeline, which will be posted here of course ;-)
