The R2-ME2 project is a fantastic look at what happens when talented artists are officially encouraged to kitbash a figure. In this case, a blank prototype of the Sideshow Collectibles Deluxe R2-D2 Sixth Scale Figure. Over 90 artists friends and fans participated, and the results were on display at Star Wars Celebration. I had a chance to check them out and it’s really amazing to see what they came up with.

Head after the break to see more examples.
