hello. This is my submission to the Create-a-droid contest. The "robot" I have chosen to create is known as the robo-hack (or a robotic taxi, in layman's terms). Here is the Wookiepedia reference, with a nice text desrption, and some stats. That said, here are some various views for your viewing entertainment.

front

3/4 side

overhead view

underside

greeblies in the rear

When you are done looking at those photos, pop on over to the discussion forum and leave a comment, if you're so inclined. Oh, by the way, this vehicle is also in the essential guide to droids.

Wow, 25 entries! Please, if you entered this contest, make sure I got your name and creation correct in this list. I will be going off of this list from now on, so that I don't have to flip back through the many pages this thread has grown to.
Over the next few days, I will be looking through these and talking them over with friends to help make my decision. Should anyone feel strongly about a particular model (not your own!) you are free to PM me if you like.

Just a small mistake - my brother has a reference, it doesn't really matter if you include the reference, but there's a link to one there, in my brother's post. Smile

I believe he's only posting the 'reference' link if the reference is on a different site.

Wow.

So many awesome creations.

Ok, here are my top picks, with the winner to follow. Smile


HK-47 by jp-30.
RIC-920 by D1.
CLL-M2 Ordnance Lifter by The Jinja Ninja.
Crab Droid by theif.
Dark Trooper (phase 2) by Brick Fett.
Repair/refueling Droid by Unit 185.
Robohack by Master_Kenobi.


Well, this was too tough. Each of the droids I've listed above captures the original droid very well. Some are astounding in their likeness, while others achieve a really good 'legoized' look and feel.


Consider a standard human and a lego human. Note the massive head, the extremely wide torso, and the short legs. Lego people are quite obviously deformed versions of ourselves. To that end, I feel that the droid that best fits in with the Lego universe is...

The Repair/Refueling Droid by Unit 185.

This little guy really grew on me the more I looked at it. The construction appears good and solid and contains all of the main points from the reference image. I realize that this droid is wider then the original, but as I said above I feel that width merely makes it fit in with the Lego figures.
Congradulations Unit 185 on a great little build. Please send me your address by PM, and I will ship out the prize to you.

For the rest of you - great job, this was really tough in deciding. Sometime in the next few days I'm going to try to review all of the creations, so keep tuning in to this post!

Thanks all for a great contest!
-Matt

Perhaps now, Unit 186, would be a good time to tell us that you've got two usernames on this here forum? Razz

Great job, and good entries, everyone. I would've entered myself, but couldn't find any good droids to make with my limited supply of bricks.
