I also got a droid kick recently. Here are the results.
The first is an Imperial Surgeon Droid.
Next, I took a plain old Gonk and weathered him up a bit.
I think the base for this one came in a Spy Kids pack. This little guy is a low cost starship maintenance droid. He is equipped to climb all over rough terrain (like the outside of vessels like the Falcon
), and has several interchangable tools and grippers for specific tasks.
This next one is a sentry droid, programmed to patrol estates of the wealthy, and deal with unauthorized visitors. They are not an uncommon sight in some of the high level apartment building of the Coruscanti elite.
This is a courrier droid, common in the halls of the senate. Whether in the Old Republic, the Empire, the New Republic or the Galactic Alliance, representatives require a quick, discreet method for sending messages to aides and others. This droid is equiped with encryption enabled holorecording equipment, advanced high voltage anti-tamper measures, and can easily scale walls in order to scurry over the throngs of people in the senate's corridores.
Whether on a construction site or in a busy spaceport, there is always a need for a medium duty labor droid. This model is in the same capability class as the popular ASP series, but posseses a higher level processor, so can handle more complicated tasks.
And finally, my favorite, an antique Astromech. This model is the same vintage of the R-1 series, with similar capabilities (and limitations). The manufacturer of this model was simply outmarketed by Industrial Automaton. In fact, IA later stole part of this models upper torso profile when designing the head for their R5 series. If you look close, you will see Bith horns and a guitar string used on this guy.
Thanks and let me know what you think!
