Pretty cool... completely pointless and a waste of two perfectly fine garbage cans, but cool.

Actually I have TONS of recycling boxes from my mom's work. they have too much so they give them to the employees sometimes and most of then throw them away.. This could be interesting.

Wow!  I think that's one of the coolest things I've ever seen someone make!  It's so authentic looking.  Very creative, it looks like it should really be in one of the movies!!!  Very impressive!  And the Imperial insignia on the side is a great touch.

Hey, this looks GREAT!   Well done!

I would love to have one of these babies just sitting back in my garage amongst a bunch of junk...as an odd conversation piece for the observant visitor who suddenly noticed I have a friggin' droid in my garage!

really terrific job.

Oh, wait....I don't have a garage.  Still, nice work!

Wow, that is awesome! How long did it take for you to make? I wish I had the talent to make something like that.

I was just given on of these recently from a friend... it's amazing that a Gonk can be made from two Sterilite tubs.

I'll have to get some pics and post mine too...

That is one tall Gonk droid. Can a child fit inside it? You need to post a recipe and instructions on making it.

Wish I could take credit for making it.  It was done by one of the guys over at the Tennessee Boards (www.tswcg.com).  He's made about 4 of them so far, all with differant paint schemes.

I've been so tempted to do one of these.  It's a heck of a lot easier to get parts for this than an Astromech!
