R2-D2 and BB-8 Astromech Droids

The Bay Area R2 Builders are an eclectic group of individuals that have taken their love for their favorite droid to a whole new level. They are Star Wars fans who have built full size, fully functional R2-D2s and BB-8s.

What inspired you to make this project?:
Star Wars. Many of us grew up with and fell in love with Star Wars, so we wanted to showcase our love for the characters and get other people excited about building. A lot of people initially are intimidated by the idea of building something like an R2D2, but we want to show people that with a little time and patience, you definitely can!
