Yakfinities Entry - SKV-Y33 Feral Salvage Droid
« on: January 27, 2010, 12:40 AM »
My entry for the Yakfinities - Feral Droids

SKV-Y33

The SKV series salvager droid has been in service for decades. It was on the way to being phased out until the Clone Wars hit. Suddenly the galaxy had a huge demand for a specialized salvage droid and the SKV series continued production.
This unfortunate droid saw a long line of owners who either abused or neglected maintaining it.
Fortune would shine upon this droid when its owners became victims of feral droids in an abandoned industrial section or Corescant. SKV-Y33 had expected to be scrapped by the droids. It was suprised when they offered to purge it of its limitating programs and join them in vengence upon their cruel former masters.
SKV now assists in sabotaging speeders of explorers (and of course getting new parts to repair his friends)
Sometimes SKV also attempts to salvage useful chemicals from otherwise useless "meat bags"...

Is it just me or does it look like the robot from The Black Hole with legs?

Nice work.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

The Black Hole inspirations does show doesn't it? I was inspired by B.O.B. when I designed this droid.
