So I was researching droids and I came across this bugger, the S19 Astromech Droid
. It was developed as competition to Industrial Automation's R-Series Droids
. While it has some drawbacks to the widely popular R2 units, it fares better than some of the lesser R-series units such as the R4 and R5.
Essentially, If you want a 3D droid, there are plenty of R-Series droids available... some very high quality, some very poor. But if you are looking for something a bit more unique, like I do, its hard to find. So I decided I would take my model of my R2, chop it up, and turn it into the S19. Overall, Im happy with the way it came out, and surprised at how low I managed to keep the polycount (just under 19k).
I plan to incorporate this guy somethere in Diji's Droid-Stable somewhere. Not sure if it will see duty on his flagship, or his hangarship, but it will see duty somewhere... I really like the shape of these things... sort-of a R-series / EG-6 hybrid.
