Geeks create group for recreating R2-D2s

100_1295.jpgDedicated to designing droids, Astromech is a club for creating personal life-sized R2-D2 replicas. From bolts to LEDs, the nerds are there to help you in your time of need. With 5,000 members, the group encourages socializing through BBQs and Star Wars conventions. In desperate nerd-need of your own life-sized R2-D2? The founder of Astromech states that it can run you anywhere between $500 to $40k depending on your droid desires. As an alternative, we're sure that a Rubik's Cube-solving robot made out of Legos may cost you a little less, and still preserve your l33t-ness.


I looked on the site but couldn't find instructions for building just an astromech dome for a speeder. An R2 head could function reasonably well on the on top of the trunk of an S2000.
