Back in December, in portuguese McDonalds, the Happy Meal toy was a SW line. There was an R2D2 that would project the faces of the main characters from the movies when you pushed the button. I couldn't find any pics online, but I assume that you got that McD promotion in the US?

edit: Nope, the McDonalds one isn't the same as the older Burger King one - so that's a new one to me! Seems there are a few new fast food promos I haven't seen yet.

That vacuum is a new on to me, though I just know it's not going to work... and the "sculpture" looks like junk.

I think it supposed to be that way. For the technique it's good, whether or not you like Steampunk is the only way it could look "junky" in a way that meant bad.

It's not that I don't like steampunk style or scrap art, I actually do. That just doesn't pull off the effect very well.

We must have different tastes, then-- I thought it looks fantastic in its steampunkery. ;)

The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.

It's just a render, but I have the high res saved for posterity already. Needs a warmachine 3PO to go with him.

I know you've heard of this before, but the R2-D2 aquarium looks frickin awesome.
