    This is an awesome, I guess they will get it resolved in the small claims court.

    Will R2D2 be dirty and grimy like..or clean and shiny (presumably because she's ensconced in the Coruscant or wherever the headquarters/capital is...). Yes, R2D2 is a girl. :p

    An article recently came up on starwars7news.com from back in July by Arnd Riedel and Oliver Steeples--2 confirmed Creature Effects team members for Episode 7--wherein they talk about an R2 unit that'd been made for Celebration Europe. Anyway, the general idea is that what is shown/described in the article could be a sign of things to come with the R2 being built for VII. Shown also, is a blueprint of sorts of R2, which I thought was a nifty bonus.

    http://www.starwars7news.com/2013/11/building-better-r2-d2.html

    If this is indeed the basic fundamentals behind the future-tech R2 we're to see in the upcoming VII, then I'm quite grateful thus far as R2 doesn't seem to have undergone any drastic changes.

    The blueprint picture with Artoo is not from Riedel's & Steeples project. It's an interpretation from another fan.

    Oh, I know. Yeah, I was just saying that it was a cool separate inclusive addition to be featured in the article. Thanks, though.

    Whatever his orientation, he's a total player - he gets it on with the Death Star, Cloud City, The Invisible Hand, and who knows what else off screen...

    I'd like to see a totally clear R2 unit so that we see his innards. :p

    I want the first shot of R2 to be Luke fiddling with Artoo's jetpacks and closing it shut and saying. "There! Fixed! Only been about half a century, buddy. Sorry about that."

    This totally reminds me of:



    For the question of whether R2's a boy or girl, he's definitely a boy. I mean there's a reason Seth McFarlene made Cleveland R2-D2. :p

    You can't do that, their parts would be showing! Sigh, I guess these young droids are wearing less and less these days! [face_not_talking]

    I also hope R2 plays dubstep.

    Androidogynous?

    Anyway, I don't believe R2-D2 will be in EPVII. He/She has only ever been a bit part player :p
