ahhhhhhh, finally a suitable droid to serve beer on my sail barge!!
oh wait, it doesn’t dispense suds? hmm guess this is NOT the droid i’m looking for…
As an extremely poor collector, I volunteer. I can offer $20 and a student pass good through September on Madison, WI city buses (don’t worry, they never check IDs).
I have long suspected that R2-D2 was actually full of beer…
hoping to find a buyer who isn’t just a rich collector…
Now there’s a niche market. How do you target that?
The big question is: What’s on the inside? A holo-projector? Any other guesses?
I really like it. I’d like to bid on it. I’m doing my R2D2 imitation now…bugging the dog.
Seriously, I love this piece!
Well, are you rich?
Then you can’t have it!
How convenient. Instead of rolling out a barrel, the barrel rolls itself out.
Poke around his DeviantArt page to see some of his steampunk Star Wars craft designs. Between all of the steampunk interpretations of Star Wars I’ve seen online you could assemble an entirely new production of it.
I like the idea of a raffle, that gives some of us economically challenged people a chance.
what is it? six inches high?
#8..so close. I thought I was going to make it through the day without reading the word “steampunk” again. Is it over yet?
hello i made this !
thanks for the nice comments, however i must point out that it is nowhere near beer barrel size, it is in fact six and a half inches tall.
thought so from the floor boards
Very nice work, do you use a loupe or what? I’ve always wanted to set up a bench with a stereo microscope for this kind of thing.
3 “three pee” O was obviously a fag. But what about R2D2. He was into the princess, but saved her and what did she do instead of hugging him? Ditched him for her brother! Crazy woman. Wait, that was redundant. I merely meant: woman.
C3PO was not gay. He’s just British.
R2D2 was a lesbian. This all men know. And we do claim C3PO as one of our own.
I thought you were from California
Lines on a map, drawn by mortal hands…
Amoebaboy, I’m interested. If you can send a link so we can talk about it, that would be cool.
That’s a great model. It must have taken an age to put together. Sell it hard Amoebaboy!
Now this is just freakin Rad! Tho I never knew that C3PO was gay and R2D2 was a lesbian. I guess you learn something new everyday.
This IS the droid I’m looking for!
