This phrase turned out to be inaccurate as we found out later on, as it was in fact an R5 unit, at the time Luke was a simple farm boy, so I suppose we can let him off ! LOL
After working on Dark Eldar all last month, I wanted to return to my Star Wars project so decided to paint up a few more astromech's.
This first batch are all R5 units
On the left is R5-D4 who was first seen in episode 4 and was the unit that blew his motivator, in the expanded universe we found out he was a rebel spy, and recently he appeared in "The Mandolorian"
In the middle is R5-K6 who appeared in the original trilogy.
The last one is R5-U8 who appears in Star Wars Rebels.
Next up are some R2 units
On the left is R2-K2, this was first done as a promotional droid to help raise funds for Breast Cancer research, and has since appeared in Star Wars Rebels.
In the centre is R2-C4 and appeared in the original trilogy.
On the right is R2-A6 and also appeared in the original trilogy.
Last droid today is an R4 unit
This next model is a shapeshiffter like the one that appeared in Episode 2 " Attack of the Clones" this model had been sat in the pile of no idea of what to do with since I got it as I'd already painted one on the movie, until watching the Clone Wars cartoon noticed another shapeshiffter and while finding reference pictures found another two from the expanded universe.
That's all for this post, so until next time stay safe and have fun !
