    Here are a few pics of the GONK Droid I built this summer. I need to dig up some pics from all sides....been busy and they've gotten buried on the computer somewhere. It's inspired by the Kenner Power Droid, but with a more realistic shape like the movies. There were several different gonk droids seen in the original trilogy, with no less than five different ones in ANH alone. As it turns out, the one that most resembles the Kenner toy seems to be walking in the backgound of the Death Star hangar when the Scanning Crew is preparing their gear.

    The four red buttons on the front light up sequentially, and when you press them, he talks. I got him set up to play Gonk noises (sandcrawler), Gonk being tortured (ROTJ), bad motivator (R5-D4), and the Cantina Music.

    So a "GONK droid" design in this case means "Going On No Known Droid" design. ;)



    Edit: It looks like this new(er) version of Firefox lets me post messages here, so I can annoy you all again. :)
