R2-D2 Minifig Brickmodder'ed With Lights and Sound

Postby Staff » Mon Oct 05, 2009 8:40 am

Rob over at Brickmodder Labs is a master at lighting up minifigs. He was the one responsible for my light-up chrome C-3PO fig. I always knew he was able to do an R2-D2 minifig, but he decided to take it one step further. By taking the sound and light components from a Hasbro action figure, he modded the circuit board and cut it down to size to fit inside an R2 minifig body to create the world's first minifig with sound. For more information and a video, check out the Brickmodder Labs Blogology post: R2-D2 minifig with lights and sound . And just to answer everyone's questions up front: no, he is not selling his fig; and he has no plans on mass producing it either.

THAT is the frakk'n most coolest thing I have ever seen!! :shock: I only wish he had done it with the newer R2-D2 dome head, because the print is larger so there are more spots for lights, etc. Awesome work! :cool:

Two words. Epic. Win.
Can he mod other astromechs? I'd like to put my R7-A7 to some use.

Surely you could make your own. You must have tonnes of R2s that would be more than willing to sacrifice their sound chip... ;)

But yeah, that's awesome, I want one too.

I felt really bad for Don. A chrome Vader would be cool eh? It could say "No, I...am your father. XD Is it possible to have a Admiral Ackbar? :lol:
