I love it! Dont think I could make something as clever as yours, but this gives me inspiration for a aircraft repair hanger.

Quoting Harry 863 The mechanism taking the droids off of the conveyer belt is very well done :)
The initial design had everything in one level if you've seen the WIP pics and I took a bit of a gamble on rebuilding half of the structure to place the rotating R2s. The tricky part was to connect the lower level of the conveyor belt and up to the second level. Looks like the hard work paid off!
Quoting Tim C Wow. Gorgeous piece of work. I love your Star Wars inspired MOCs and this is no let down. Great greebling and I like all the elements of a manufacturing plant that you included here.
The greebling is a bit more restrained so as not to complicate the overall look.
Quoting Imagine Rigney Sweet! Nice work. Like how you've got something happening all along the assembly line. Cool.
I wanted to have a purpose for each phase of the assembly shown without overdoing it.
Quoting Henrik S Very nice, I like the grebbling and how snot and smooth everything looks :) Awesome details for a moc of this size, 5/5 ;)
Footprint is a large baseplate with a stud or so overhang in some places and kept the simplified overall look.
Quoting Scott Allen I really like this. I loved following the path of the R2's. You did a great job showing each phase of the droids being built. Every detail is fantastic, like how you put white gloves on 3PO droids. Cant have any dirt on those gleaming white domed trashcans... LOL. Awesome parts usage. Really cool idea and realization. ~cheers
Thumbs up for noticing the purpose of the white gloves. The link provides more detailed pics of the whole assembly line.

Quoting John W. This is unbelievably awesome!
Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ Nice job! ;)
Quoting Nick Pascale I do hope you win some sort of prize for this! You very well deserve it!
Quoting John Stahlman This is so epic it hurts! Amazing job!
Quoting JS Can Nice concept and execution
Quoting Tasty Muffins You make the best star wars MOCs hands down
Quoting Captain Smith Awesome. And different. I like it.
Quoting Nils O. I just have one word for that: Epic! Great Job! :-))
Thanks all for you C&C and would be great to place among the five entries in the contest.

Quoting Great Lightning-Hawk Of Dawn Wow how many R2's and 3PO's did you use on this?
Nine 3PO's and about 20 R2's.
Quoting Rich Collins... 257th Wolf This is the, uh, stuff that 3PO's dreams are made of..
He always wanted to have a chance of tearing down R2! Well, if this is in reverse order.

Quoting Dave Kaleta Lovely exploration of texture within a limited color scheme. ~Dave
Quoting David Alexander Smith The restrained colour range really help this shine. I like the composition, which captures the buzz of industry.
The mix of dark/light gray/bley with black was to depict the monotonous atmosphere inside the factory.
