    I've recently started a project to catalogue my R2D2 collection to try and keep better track of it, because for now they're either stored away somewhere or displayed on these shelves:

    -and while its fun to see a big pile of R2s like that, it?s not very clear what exactly I have.

    So, with that in mind and some time to kill while I was sick, I started photographing each unique item individually over the last few days. I got a decent setup where I don?t need to clean up the images very much, but it will still take many hours to get them all. You can see the one I?ve done already here: http://flickr.com/photos/donsolo/sets/72157594149539105/

    So far I've got 141 of them online with dozens more waiting their turn. Hopefully I can get them all online before too long, and I?ll know for sure again just how many I have. I thought maybe someone in here might be interested in seeing them, and I wondered if anyone else has a collection like this? ? (plus I?m looking for a reason to keep our Fresno forum active!)

    Well, not exactly an R2 collection but lots of original release stuff.

    However, I am looking for one specific droid piece that I didn't get when it was available (and NOT LFL authorized). Seriously this thing did exist for a while..

    It was a C3PO scotch tape dispenser. 3PO was on his back holding the roll of tape on his stomach/chest. The tape was then pulled through his open bent legs and the "cutter" was between his knees. It was so disgusting it was hysterical. Part of a desk set. I passed on it at the time (just wasn't into 3PO for a collectable) but have kicked myself over and over that I didn't get it..just because it was soo....odd.


    *There does that help Fresno a small bit?*
