Steampunk R2-D2 Made from Recycled Materials

created at: 12/20/2010

UK artist Amoebaboy has created what’s not only my favorite R2D2 DIY project, but my favorite Steampunk one as well!   The photo doesn’t make it clear, but it’s actually quite tiny – the barrel is made of coffee stirrer sticks and the dome comes from a small part of a water meter.

See it at DeviantArt, then visit AmoebaBoy’s site to check out his new projects.

Also, he provides a free pattern to make a papercraft cardboard Steampunk x-wing fighter.
