“R2 says the chances of survival are 725…to 1.”
Few things in life are consistently awesome. Star Wars is definitely one of them. Steampunk artwork is another. What happens when you combine the two? Steampunk R2D2, that’s what. Artist Mark Edwards a.k.a. Amoebabloke has taken the classic R2D2 character and given him the steampunk treatment, refashioning the famed droid out of wood, brass, glass and steel.
For someone who could only communicate via beeps and boops, R2’s genius comic timing and wry humor were always spot-on. Now he’s got the style to match that dynamic personality. R2 stands about 5″ (12.5cm) in height and about 3″ (7.5cm) wide. He is available as a print for $19.99 on deviantART.
