5785. Building your own R2-D2 and other droids
The R2 Builders Club is world-wide with many Builders taking their completed droids to children's hospitals, charity events, local libraries and similar fund raisers where R2's presence can raise awareness and put a smile on faces. Some Builders simply build their R2 just to have in their living room as a media station. Either way, welcome to the club! The Builders are here at Loscon this weekend to discuss their droids and in this panel will cover the materials and methods, the time and costs involved with building your own, full-size R2-D2 and all of your other favorite Star Wars droids. Moderated by Tom Piedmont.
