Monsterbrick's R2 Hologram Would Make A Great Nightlight

Hologram artoo unitR2-Poop-2


Do you wake up screaming through the darkness every night in a cold sweat, your brain still burning with twisted images ripped straight from the vivid landscapes of the PT as they scatter back to the dark recesses of your mind's eye? There is one sure fire way to calm yourself and help you be sure George Lucas isn't hiding under your bed, ready to fill your dreamscape with more of his eye catchingly evil machinations, as soon as your heart stops racing and you drift back to sleep.

An R2-D2 nightlight!

Monsterbrick is no stranger to holographic LEGO R2 units, or astromechs in general, but this really stood out for me. Sometimes a builder posts an MOC and I'm blown away. Other times I'm wildly entertained or even lament that I didn't think of that first. This is a case where I immediately wanted to build my own and my son agreed.

Of course, with too many projects already in the works, I won't. So, I'm hopeful Ace can distract Matt long enough to make off with it at LEGOLAND's Star Wars weekend. At least before Don tries first.

I leave you with another of his R2 variations, in honour of Anti Bullying Day 2014, R2-QT.

*Grab this one too, Ace!*

The "hologram" Artoo is such a cool idea!! Very well executed.

Wow, didn't know that many "trans" bricks existed in so many shapes! Great job, Monster. Looking forward to seeing your creations at LegoLand this year.

I love the first one...the artoo see-through one...awesome!

i'm much less sure about R2 QT. I wouldn't say i'm offended by it... but it does make me feel uncomfortable... as a tribute to Anti-Bullying Day it leaves a lot to be desired. Is the inclusion of pink and a camp name supposed to make us stand up for a more tolerant society? it just seems like it is perpetuating an outdated stereotype. Not impressed with that.

I find anti-bullying day a tricky one in general, and am reminded of Kurt Vonnegut's quote about what's the point of an anti war novel, you may as well have an anti glacier novel. I'm with Kurt on this one. Anti Bullying Day is good as it raises awareness and can change people's views etc.

I don't think a pink robot will do this though. We can do better than this surely.

Ah!

Well that explains it. Happy days. Happy Anti-Bullying Day!

here in the uk, ABD is usually sometime around November. We don't wear pink.

You say tomato, i say tomato.
