R2-CE's construction journey. From January 2012-May 2013. Eventually his skins will get replaced, as the current ones arrived warped, and never met in the middle. His new metal ankle is here... his new metal boosters will be here next month. And THEN he will be an all metal droid. Total cost is about $9500. not counting resin parts that where re-sold to recoup for metal purchases. All in all, it didn't quite break the bank. you sometimes have to wait months for parts. $200's here, $200's there..so long as you don't go overboard, it's do-able.
