A bit of leg

A bit of legThis is insane: a bloke who’s building his own life-sized R2-D2. So far he’s done the legs. I can’t help wondering if he gave up at that point after George Lucas suddenly equipped those same legs with rocket boosters in Attack of the Clones. That’ll teach the nerdy little twat, George probably thought. He should be out driving fast cars and chasing girls, goddammit! Now where did I put that modelling cement…?

But I digress. I’m sure I’m right though. George keeps an eye on these things, you mark my words. If our plucky hobbyist manages to work his way around this one, expect R2-D2 to suddenly be made of liquid metal and be able to morph into a desk lamp at will in time for Revenge of the Sith.

“Links lead to trailers…”

“…trailers lead to overexcitement… overexcitement leads to bowel irregularities… bowel irregularities lead to the dark side!”

Regular blogrot reader (hi Simon!) will remember that I promised myself I won’t watch any trailers for Star Wars Episode III. But that was before an evil, shadowy presence sent me a link to the teaser trailer and I clicked on it quicker than you can say “seduced by the dark side”.
