I had to share this cool piece I got off of artist Randy Walker. It's our favorite droid on that classic vintage black Kenner card, only done in watercolors and pen. I included a lighter for scale, so you could see how big it actually is. He's done many other characters, and after getting this piece, I highly recommend adding some to your own collection!
Etsy seller "CarvedCrayons" created this unique collectible that you won't find in the local toy aisle. This R2-D2 was hand carved from a large size Crayola crayon which is slightly bigger than the standard size. You can purchase a plain white version, or one with extra colors applied via melting wax from other crayons. Click here to check it out and order one for yourself!
I got a special heads up from Five Spot Derby that they'll be offering this piece for sale at 10:30 AM PST on May 20th. It's R2-D2 created using the text from the opening crawl of Star Wars : A New Hope.
I've finally scored one of these cool prints from Etsy shop "TheGeekerie". This fine art print is a grungy, modern art illustrated take on the popular droid R2-D2 from the Star Wars universe. This print would make a great addition to any geek den, living room, office space, or bedroom wall. Click here to order, and check out all of the other Star Wars prints available!
Here's a cool piece of custom mash up art from Nick Scurfield. It's pretty creative to see our favorite astromech all decked out like Boba Fett. Nick also writes:
"I wanted to take Artoo's cocky little frame and bestow it with some of the razor sharp coolness usually reserved for Mr B. Fett. I don't know if its because its getting late or I've been working on it for too long, but theres something about this mash up that already feels comfortably familiar."
