I'm thinking of doing this one aswell, I'm gonna use an epi 1 B-droid sculpt the upper part and fins on the legs, and use a fire fighter helmet for the head the hands I have no idea......... yet. possibly something like DD's bith bounty hunter.

Not sure yet IN REM, but that's a really interesting looking character.

Joe figures probably would give the best base for the head... good suggestion.

Lampreys looks like it might work, too.



From there I thought the body on the final version of the droid would probably borrow elements from the Clone Troopers' armor. Perhaps clone armor, but with droid joints, hands and feet?

hmm, I never thought of using a Joe head, thats good idea but I think ill stick with fire pilot becuase its starwars I'll have better access to them.

The legs could definatly be Clone Trooper legs...the top looks a little more complicated.  This is an interesting project though...

I find her attractive because she's a clinet and she sleeps above the covers....FOUR FEET above the covers!!

I was actually thinking of this one back when the clone wars group project was up, just never got around to it. I think a Clone Pilot head has the structure more so than the g.i. joe suggested.

wow that visor really is perfect. If you can somehow get the mouthpiece off a clone pilot i think it'll be perfect.
