Droid Factory


"Oh my goodness! Shut me down! Machines making machines?! Hmm... How perverse."


In Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, Anakin SkywalkerPadmé Amidala, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 stumbled into one of the Geonosian droid assembly plants to save Obi-Wan Kenobi. The scene with C-3PO is hilarious, he gets his head swapped with a droid head. 

I saw many sets online of LEGO droid factories, yet they were all very static. It seemed to be very hard for them to combine two assembly lines. I placed the two assembly lines in each other. Inside Padmé is fighting of the big stamp press (you can see the spring on the front and rear), outside is the scene where C-3PO is losing his head. The whole thing can be continuously rotated so that the droids just keep on coming. The droids disappear in the lower section where I designed a paint booth. A droid is monitoring the process through a window. I even managed the ramp in the back which is retractable.

I realize it could be scaled up a bit but at first I went for as small and affordable as possible, counting only 400 pieces. LEGO could add as much robot arms and height/with to it to scale it up. It features 2 Geonosians, Luke, Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2 and a bunch of droids. Have fun!
