A Very Large Amount of Parts Arrive!!!

Awe, the good life. This is just like Christmas in the summer. Everyone of these boxes has R series parts in them. Many of them are very expensive aluminum, and some others are resin parts. Some will be used to finish droid #1 and others will go on droid #2

Part Heaven.

It took a while to open all of these. I often wondered whats inside this package? Most of them where a nice surprise as no way your best Christmas can top this. My build started last March and it was fun as each part arrived or I spent hours making my own parts, but so far nothing topped Summer Christmas Droid Arrival! Its one thing to unwrap Star Wars toys as a little kid, but its a whole another universe unwrapping 1:1 Star Wars parts for a real droid. Nice job on the green shrink wrapping the parts for shipping.

So here is whats new. Legs, feet, boosters, battery straps, ankles, power couplers, ankle diet stuff I think, half moons, shoulder hubs, coin returns. Its alot of stuff. You could nearly retire or buy a nice car when you think about buying these parts. But hey you only live once so live it the best with your droid of your choice.

So here is the break down.
3 feet
3 ankles
1 coin slot
set of half moons

AL parts 
set of legs
set of power couplers
set of battery straps
set of battery boxes
set of shoulder hubs
Plus other items I haven't listed. So R5 is pretty happy at this point. He can finally start driving around in the near future.

Squeaks the cat haz sniffed each prt and no cat smell dtecked that wasnt't hers. She is homeland security of all incoming parts and boxes to inspect. If squeaks detects another cat smell she'll rub her cheecks about 3 times on each section, part, furniture or tree etc... to override that other smell she can sniff we can't with her own. Its cat GPS if you ask me.
R5 looks over his aluminum empire of parts! This is crazy expensive. I'm going to be eating Top Romen for the next decade at this rate. But the good news is all the secondary parts like legs and boosters will be painted black and go to what might be the first imperial droid in Arizona. That droid will need its own black evil blog.
 For now droid #2 home is sitting next to bunch of expensive guitars until I can talk the wife into tossing out another coffee table to make room in the living room. Any musician whos gotten the guitar sickness which is just as expensive as Aluminum Parts Disease A.P.D. you know what kind of crayz money you can spend on a hobby that's car comparable cost wise. A droid in each room of the house isn't too bad either. Note to self. Don't drop the aluminum legs on the red guitar again. However the R2 parts are sitting on top of nearly 100 action figures and the boxes are loaded as is the entire closet full of those small 'cheap' action figure toys. The room is allot of force in it.
