Unfortunately, I am no Jedi (sad story ^^) but something tells me that you’ve been waiting for these two way too long ! Yes, as for the movies, I did tease a lot about them, on Facebook, Instagram, and even Twitch… And it’s high time their pattern was released. Plus, Rogue one is coming out this week too, what a coincidence ! ;)
During their creation process, they could have looked this way, but it’s a smaller format that finally made it through.
C3PO is about 8cm high (3 inches) while R2 is a tiny little robot of 4.5 cm (1.5 inches). I find them cuter this way, plus they are really quick to make and would perfectly fit on a key ring. I also made a second version for 3PO so you could make the older movies version or The Force Awakens one.
The pattern is available here, it includes both instructions for R2D2 and C3POs, plus of course, the usual tips and tricks and step by step pictures :)
May the force be with you my young padawans (oh no, that’s right, I’m no Jedi – sad story²) !
I hope you’ll enjoy the pattern, as for me, I’m on the road to see the new movie (there ARE some advantages of living in France ;) ) !
See you soon !
