    OK guys, getting close to crunch time. I mentioned before at our last meeting that I need droids for this project and lots of them. I need R2 units and Gonk droids mostly.

    So PLEASE! If you know ANYONE with droids or who can make them PLEASE get on that. Consider this your donation to the cause :)

    Anyone who's read the script knows these babies won't go to waste. They are critical to the project, not just eye-candy in the background.

    If you have any contacts, please get ahold of Chase.

    Thanks

    The only problem you run into is that most Gonks' that people have made, don't move. And an R2 unit costs' about 10-20 thousand dollars to make, so they don't get used much.

    Thank you TK!

    And we don't need the Gonk to move at all. Just the R2s

    As a matter of fact, if someone has broken down any Gonks for parts, we can use the broken ones. There's a scene in the movie specifically for that.

    TK, actually thanks for the link but I checked out the website and it doesn't pan out to my needs. Do you know of any other sources?

    Appreciate it :)

    I have only met one person who actually has one, and he is in Tampa. Either the R2D2 builders club or maybe the RPF are your best bets for finding people or resources. You might want to shoot over to the Florida 501st boards (www.fl501st.com) and make an account on there asking for help. The guy I met is a member and I'm sure there are more people that have resources to share lurking on there.

    As far as a Gonk goes, Skaught from the Florida 501st has one that I have seen and its pretty simple to make. Its mostly 2 Rubbermaid trash cans for the body, some large shopvac hose or corrogated drain line for the legs, carved wooden bases for the feet, and assorted boxes, jibblies, and knobs for the faceplate..........
