Italian Modeller Makes R2-D2 Into A Death Dealing Machine!

October 8, 2015 by dracs

It’s always fun to see what modellers can come up with when they let their imagination run wild. One such Italian modeller named Lemcat recently let his loose in the Star Wars universe and came up with a version of R2 unlike any that has gone before.

Hi2-D2

Named Hi2-D2 – Enhanced Astromech Droid, this new version of the classic Star Wars droid looks like it could probably take on the whole Empire by itself.

This model is a custom build of a Gundam kit, and comes complete with all of the little astromech’s useful gizmos and gadgets.

The end result is a pretty awesome new take on a classic character, who is no longer content to play the role of the group’s white mage.

Do you think there are any other Star Wars characters who’d be improved by getting turned into Gundams?
