    I imagine R2 is kept in perfect chape by new republic engineers, he's a war hero after all. I imagine him in better condition than ever. Also love that fans are building him.

    I realize that its not, but its a strong indicator Luke shall return unless he's dead and the droids went to a new owner.

    Agreed. The story was always through the eyes of the droids. It would only make sense to continue the story from this perspective as well. I guess I just assumed they would be in so I'm not overly stoked to see the artoo image. Though it is nice to have the confirmation.=D=

    Good question. It would be great if they gave him a new gizmo apart from the other movies.

    I hope not, I thought that was so stupid in the PT.

    I hope he has his rockets. It makes perfect sense to me that a droid working on the exterior hulls of spaceships would have a need for independent rocket boosters. If he were ever knocked free somehow (by debris or something) he'd need a way to get back or if he needed to quickly get to another part of the ship they'd come in handy there too.

    ^ Yeah, this. I'd like to see a new gizmo with every new movie, just like in the existing ones.

    R2 was done mostly with practical effects in the PT as well.

    I think it's outstanding that fans are now being brought in for their expertise. These guys build killer robots and badass robots -- how fitting. And one thing that i especially liked reading is that they build DROIDS, not just R2's. So we shall see all kinds of insteresting droids I think.

    Also, I concur with those that think we should see some new R2 gizmos. Maybe that could be a whole new thread -- "What gizmo will R2 have ine Episode 7?" [face_laugh]:p

    I think he'll have a cork screw.

    Yeah, they were Luke's property. I think. He inherits them from Uncle Owen, I guess. Dunno if Owen wrote Luke into his will, he's kind of a jerk. But Captain Antilles might still be their owner. Because they were stolen by the Jawas. But he's also dead. Damn. Vader broke his damn fool neck when he tried to sputter out they were on a diplomatic mission. So maybe Bail owns them! Cuz they're Rebel property. But he got blown up. Damn. Who owns the droids?!

    I *think* Naboo starfleet could technically still lay claim to Artoo. But I think Threepio is a direct piece of Skywalker property, if you follow the chain of possession....
    .....unless everything Annie owned was technically Watto's property. Oh heck.

    Nah, but I like that tapped hobbyists for this. It's kind of like a Cinderella story, without the sexism.

    Not exactly the most surprising piece of news IMHO. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he's in it, but does this actually surprise anyone at all? It would be good to get some news that's actually the slightest bit of information about what's happening.

    Could you imagine older Luke stretching out his arm in the middle of precarious situation and Artoo's head panel opens... and he launches a cool, refreshing Pepsi Next into Luke's hand...?

    talk about product placement! It would make Alpa Cino in Tropic Thunder look like a newbie.

    R2 could shoot Lando a smooth, cool, Colt 45 as he maxes and relaxes with all of his honies
