    Link: R2-D2 Builders` Club - Yes, there`s an actual club for people who build R2-D2 droids. Nice robots though.

    what T`s me off the most is that they make R2-D2 only....R2 is neat and all, but if everyone is making the same astromech kinda kills it.

    Hey, I was in San Mateo (San Francisco) this week!
    And hey, we took American Airlines, and in the Sky Mall catalog they have an R2-D2 toy that you can buy! It can make the sounds and play games like tag!
    And hey! I got Lego Star Wars for my PSP a few weeks back! Wow!

    Do I belong with these people?

    In regards to the video...this is so lame. I agree with IkeRay. All of them are building the same robot. They`re all gonna be the same. Now, a C-3PO droid (I can`t believe I remember the name) would be cool. Even though there are more advanced
    robots that do more than he can...
    Nevermind, I`m reading too much into this.
    And how come Star Wars says "In a Galaxy long ago..." when it`s somehow in the future? Ooh, 737 characters, wow.

    Star wars is not in the future.
    It`s a galaxy far far away, more advanced than us.

    They`re not the same droid. They`re similar droids. The technical side of it can be vastly different. One could have a complex AI written over a course of years, one could roll around at random, one could be remote controlled.

    Plus the minor detail that they`re perfecting the art until it gets as good as the one on TV. They`re not there yet.

    I`m fairly sure none of them have built a droid that can fix a Millnium Falcon`s Hyperdrive in flight.

    Baalthazaq - I`m surprised you haven`t mentioned the fact that they haven`t included an acutal holographic projector. Oh wait. They`re not going to be going into space with them because that part was in a film. Silly me.

    I agree with the others, sure, perfecting the droid may be fun, and R2-D2 is awesome, but it seems kind`ve silly to have them all resemble R2...
