Welcome to my blog dedicated to the creation of my very own full-sized R2-D2. When I was 2 years old, my parents took me to see my first movie. That movie was Star Wars: A New Hope. I fell in love with Artoo Deetoo right from the start (I called him Artee Dootoo). I've always wanted my own R2 so in 2002 I joined the R2-D2 Builders' Group and started my long but rewarding process of building my own Artee Dootoo! I hope you enjoy my site.
