R2-DTOP - Transformatop!
This is my entry for Yuri Fassio's Spinning Top Contest! If you know me, you know that I would enter some sort of Star Wars Transformer for this contest! I thought I'd pick everyone's favorite astromech: R2-D2! I know he's not entirely movie-accurate BUT I had to sacrifice some detail so that A.He could transform into a top and B.He could actually spin! This is for the 16-100 piece category with 69 (my favorite) pieces. Please let me know what you think:)
About this creation









A 3/4 view (my favorite)!








Believe it or not, R2-DTOP can actually spin!


...and spin...


...and spin!

You know, my Friend, we totally missed this back in October! I suppose we breezed right by Yuri's contest...thinking "Tops...interesting"...and just never following up. This little Dude rocks! We'll bet he was the best of the best of the best (Sir!), and most assuredly deserves a MOTD! Congratulations!

Amazing! Hey, add a scene where R2 turns into a top to knock away Stormtroopers! That'll be awesome! That way, R2 can finally have/be a weapon!

Quoting Louis K. Interesting idea! I´ve just one question: Does r2 transform into this funny spinning thing ( when I saw the pic I thought It´s photoshopped, but it´s actually real!) or into a kind of spaceship?? Btw the head reminds me of this other droid ( I don´t know how it´s called). The droid Luke buys first in ep. IV( it´s a red one, but almost similar to r2 just the head and the color are different) but it gets broken and luke buys cp30 and r2.....Anyway this is very creative ^^ Great job!!
It basically just flattens out so it can spin:)
