Good site if you have a R2-D2 fetish
www.astromech.net
Most interesting is the Gallery:

I think he pretty much covered every astromech that has ever appeared in the movies.

And how. Yes, I, for one, found the pics very crisp and clean. I updated the frontpage until I reached the green R7-X2 again, missed it the first time. That one was a work of art.

Yeah, I liked the green one, too. Unfortunately, he was blown apart in the Death Star attack.

I remember finding this site a couple years ago. Resulted in me making these images:

I don't know what happened to my other post - but I never realised... Daleks and Astromech Droids have some vague similarities!! [Smile]

Maybe R2-D2's beeps and whistles are him saying "Ex-term-in-aaaaaaate" [Smile]

Heh, maybe that's where Anakin's problems stemmed from R2 kept digging it in that he got a "rub-down" from Padme before the two had even met.

Well he is the inspiration for Kenny.

Before reading that site, I hadn't thought about the fact that R2-units could be programmed with either gender personality. A female R2 seems dangerously kawaii.
