Those are cool. I saw a prop-style replica of one of the drones at RoboNexus a few years ago but I've never seen anyone build an actual robotic replica like the R2 and B9 guys are doing these days. I bet it would be tough to get it to walk given the weird leg arrangement.
I re-learned of the R2 builders group last October (from fellow DPRG member Doug Emes), and was amazed at the quality and attention to detail of the parts. I became a member, and have now accumulated most of the parts to build my own all-metal R2-D2.
I, too, was at Jerry's B9 build party, and had a fantastic time.
The wonderful thing about groups like these is the breadth of talent of the membership, and their willingness to share knowledge.
