One of my favorite aspects of Star Wars are the wonderful production illustrations that Ralph McQuarrie created to sell the film to Fox back in the seventies...his designs influenced the final film, but they also had a style that was only represented in the original paintings themselves. Which explaines why the above figures of Artoo Deetoo and See Threepio look so odd. Completed nearly two years ago, I took some of the elements of McQuarrie's initial droid designs and combined them with my own ideas.
For Threepio, I modified a Vampire Hunter D figure, resculpting much of the body to turn the female character into something more androgynous and closer to the Futura Automaton from Metropolis (a major influence on Threepio's design). I added some hands and feet from another figure, and voila! My own take on the protocol droid we know and love (or hate) so well.
Artoo was different. He's composed primarily of a loctite super glue canister, a vending machine dome, some legs from an 'Alien Racers' figure, and some Ichabod Crane accessories for the various attachments. The various panels were made with vinyl, and odds and ends were harvested from my spare parts bucket.
Yoda is included here because he's my latest creation. He's primarily composed of armature wire and cloth, with a head sculpted from Fimo and hands from epoxy putty. He stands about 2 1/2" tall (or thereabouts).
