Hi I’m Thomas Nixon and…a long time ago…about 35 years ago actually I made a lifesize rc R2 out of cardboard, sweat and a lot of tape. It made it through one sf convention before I had to mothball it because of rain the very next day, lol. Now after a long thought process over the years and after visiting so many conventions (such as the Star Wars Celebration III and IV). I decided this is it. I love a challenge, I’ve loved the entire astromech concept as well as Star Wars (of course) and face it R2’s the real hero. So this is my attempt to recreate a hero to us all R2-D2 as well as a newer hero’s like R2-Q5. I’ve even kind of found a soft spot for the Disney movie Wall-e.

And yes, as of this summer (2015) I’ve begun to design and build a working BB-8 of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The plan is to be done by the third quarter of 2016 😉


Feel free to leave comments and tips….Best Regards Thomas Nixon
