Droids need to be very careful of Jawa's as they will sell there parts quicker than you can say 'Tatooine has two sun's'

 

There have been sightings in SE15

Building R2 would not of been possible without the droid building community of:

www.Astromech.net and Astromech.info

 

Bottom line is you cannot buy a kit and people do not build droids to order, the builders club exists by virtue of Lucas Films and Disney allowing fan's to build replicas for their own personal use. 

 

Anyone can join the R2D2 Builders Club and anyone can build thier own droid, it can take several years to complete and it will cost several thousand pounds.

In dire circumstances droids have been sold, they sold for between 5 and 10 thousand dollars

 

My build took a year and a few grand, it is mainly aluminium and eventually will be 100% aluminium.

 

You can join R2-D2 on Facebook, follow R2 on Twitter, watch R2 on Youtube and see his pictures on Instagram

R2D2 had a very special message for a young lady,

He finally found her in Greenwich Park, London.
