Vimal Patel’s Star-Wars-inspired Lego robot rolls around, rotates its head, busts out a manipulator arm, and even deploys the 3rd leg, the oft-ignored gold standard of astrodroid recreations.

Be sure to check out the Flickr set, which contains a bunch of cool shots of Vimal’s Lego astromech experiments. Also, he’s thoughtfully shared the Lego Digital Designer LXF file on his Brickshelf page so you can build one of your own.
