antique r2d2 10 by amoebabloke antique r2d2 10 by amoebabloke
i changed a few details like the lenses, i wasnt happy with the plastic ones, got rid of the steel rail and replaced it with a water level gauge, also added some rivet detail.
if you would like to see a detailed breakdown of how it was made visit mt blog at [link]

I'm afraid I can't express any praise that hasn't already been said, so I hope a favorite will suffice. :meow: Fantastic detail work, though, love it!

There are two things. I truly love about this and they will show my age...I am old enough to recall seeing both Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in and Star Wars in the theater as a kid and loved them both of course. I just love how this combines the two for me in feeling. Lovely piece.

nice steampunk r2. ^__^
Ghostwolf8 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
Just one question about this r2d2 is there wheels under there so it can move?
Ghostwolf8 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
Now this is my idea of a steampunk r2d2! absolutely top notch! Some I have seen when looking for steampunk r2d2 stuff looked more like furniture rather than a robot. Found a site where the guy did the whole star wars characters bit in miniatures. Looks great except for poor r2d2.

I'm onto my second prototype steampunk theme immersion computer for my living room.

OMG! This has to be the cutest R2 I've seen! =) Cute lil Steam punk R2D2 hehe great job! love it! =)
archambers Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2008
This is just too much fun! So what is the scale on this? I have a friend that does antique toy restoration and created new pieces similar to this in most respects. Your gallery is so fun. I love this type of retro-futurism art!
amoebabloke Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2008
thanks, i have a few more in the pipe, but a crappy day job keeps getting in the way. thanks for sculpture link.
does your friend have a website or a dev art page? sounds interesting.
archambers Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2008
He did have apage but family stuff has taken over his time. He is also reworking it but here is a link: [link] Some of the links may be dead but you might be able to find some of his original work up.

I know what you mean about the crappy job. I'm a truck driver now and hardly ever get a chance to work in the studio. I have pieces that I've been meandering on for years in there. Hopefully I'll get back in there one day and work like a mad scientist!
amoebabloke Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2008
i also drive trucks, not big ones though.
i used to be able to sketch stuff down in between drops on my old job but the new one is sat tracked and run on a tight schedule.
im gonna tell em to stick it up their fat ugly arses in the new year, i would work for less if it meant i had more time.
continue the good work sir, you can always make a little time for the important stuff.
archambers Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2008
Trucking for now is just a way to hopefully get out of debt. Then my wife and I can pursue more meaningful careers without worrying about financial matters. At least we hope that will be the case.

oh MY! He's so adorable. I would never be able to afford something with such incredible details but if I could, he would be mine. He is just so perfect. I am so in love with steampunk style but quite honestly I am too old to adopt the dress. No, really. I am.
I spent today (my first experience with air tools!) cutting, grinding and cleaning a couple thousand pieces of an old calculating machine that I reclaimed from the trash. I I am determined to at least make myself a necklace out of some of it. have never seen anything so intricate and complex. It took a half a day just to disassemble it. My hands were black for two days.
I am blabbering, but your little guy really stirred me up. Thanks for making him and sharing him here. Made my day.

That is absolutely amazing!

Are you gonna make kits available?
amoebabloke Featured By Owner May 27, 2008
ha !
the kit would cost a fortune to manufacture, i might make a papercraft one along these lines, so everybody can have one.
