After eying this piece for over 6 months, I have it finally! Thanks to a loving wifey! Over 2127 pieces, this is the 19th largest released Lego set. And is a collectors item. Some pictures! The dimensions on the outside. Some of the functions detailed on the box like the key and the circular cutter. The Third leg can be actuated by a lever on the back of the Droid. Unpacking it all. 10 big packets with numerous sub packets and more packets for smaller components inside. The build instructions spread across 3 books. Originally I tried shooting a time-lapse video to capture the build progress, however I realized I was more conscious of the placement of the droid in the frame, than the assembly, I tried it twice, however then gave up. I wanted to enjoy the assembly more. However every now and then, when I finished one packet, or took a break, I took some pics. The insides where the actuator mechanism for the key and cutter go. The back of the Droid Front base nearly complete The attention to detail is quite impressive. The golden rods in the grooves are actually going to be hidden by the flaps and are rarely going to be seen, however just to place them there was a PITA! Without the front covers With the front covers installed Front covers closed Legs fitted Looks like it's taking a shape now The third leg hidden inside the body. The detailing on the sides of the main support legs. As hard as the intricacy looks. Finally standing on its own. (insert R2-D2 assembly noises here) The central support for the 360 Degree rotating head - Assembling the top. This was the hardest and the most detailed piece, since there were so many small pieces that the chances of something going wrong were extremely high here. Front plate and mini droid completed. Head mated with the Droid. Additional details for the legs (hoses linked to power packs). you can see the 3rd leg deployed in this one. A plate detailing the technology involved in the fictional Droid. An attempted close up of the mini droid The front doors open The telescopic key and circular cutter sticking out. You can actuate them from the dials at the back. The top front panels open. Another shot. Ready for display. Didn't wanna use any Kraggle. As detailed on the rear as in the front. Notice the small grey inserts on the feet. each is an individual circular lego piece put together. The money shot.. The motion stance. Some details on the front - Third leg retracted - Buh Bye! Thanks for viewing! All in all - Assembly time - 6 hours (with preparation - 8 hours). Pieces - 2127 Difficulty - Definitely not for kids. This needs a lot of attention and you need to double check, not to miss anything. Playability factor - Definitely not there, though you can always make it a conversation piece for sure. Additional wow factor - I would've loved a R2D2 keychain with the whole kit.
