Star Wars Ralph McQuarrie R2-D2 Concept


This creation by SPARKART! is a fantastic monument to the original Ralph McQuarrie conceptual artwork for R2-D2. Sparky certainly likes his astromechs and makes great use of the new Death Star planet part to cap off this one, I hope he's still got a few tricks up his sleeve because there's nothing like a saucy rolling trashcan to put a smile on my face (It's just an expression, I don't actually smile).

One of my favorite books I had when I was a kid was "The Star Wars Album". Ralph McQuarrie's concept drawings fascinated me then, and still do today.

Digging this back up because it's awesome, and to ask if you planned on posting photos of your McQuarrie X-Wing on flickr and here as well.
