Here is a video of R2 with the Luke Jedi message to Jabba the Hutt in ROTJ. Notice the holo projector flashing during the message.
I was getting ready to take R2 to its first event, the January meeting of the Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC). I’ve been a member since 2003 and our topic for this meeting is droid building. Greg, Izzy and Mike are all attending with their droids or pieces/parts of droids.
I thought R2 could fit into our Chevy Traverses cargo area for me to transport him around, I was wrong. Even with the dome off he is still about two inches too tall. Fortunately Izzy had room to take my droid, but now I need to figure out how I’m going to get him to events — and buying a new car isn’t one of them!
