My next Threepio is coming together!
It'll be nice to finally phase-out all of the grossly inaccurate parts from the current droid.

A few more adventures before departing Los Angeles. With the ultra rad @blumspew @maryelizabethmcglynn @gordontarpley @sugarpirates. Too much fun. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #steveblum #maryelizabethmcglynn #sugarpirates #georgebarris

Turns out I'm indistinguishable from a homeless man... BUT in between painting parts I managed to finish two more of these. One is headed off to a new home the other will be in the @combatradio charity auction tomorrow morning. This benefits hungry homeless children. SO, if you live near Los Angeles and you want one of these, come to Valencia tomorrow morning and make a bid! PLUS there'll be a few other droids to say hello to. ;) Check @combatradio for event details.

It's Black Friday and I'm almost done with a new set of 3d printed Threepio arms! This time made with black ABS filament instead of PLA (had issues printing the ABS previously but problem is sorted finally.) Aiming to have them finished and gold by Sunday!

Our attempt at reproducing an iconic scene from the original Star Wars, while at @ranchoobiwan. Tantive IV set was built in my shop, with the help of Chris Lee, Jim Shima and Jerry Greene. The set now resides in Steve Sansweet's Star Wars museum.

Another photo from the Rancho Obi-Wan gala. In front of our sandcrawler with the man himself, Stephen Sansweet, Guinness World record holding Star Wars collector. Not a bad day!

Fun evening @ranchoobiwan for their big gala. Our sandcrawler set took center stage and two new droids were donated to the droid auction, with more on the way. @gordontarpley provided his C3P0 for photo ops. A great evening, and all the proceeds go towards funding this remarkable museum. #mcmaster_robots #ranchoobiwan #starwars #museum #starwarscollection #stevesansweet #sandcrawler #gtprops

While at Rancho ObiWan, @gordontarpley and I signed the "pole". Fun to see all the names and well wishes of those who have spent time at this magical place. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #ranchoobiwan #starwars #theultimatecollection

I'm working on new, more accurate replica C-3PO shorts and couldn't have wished for better reference than this screen-used pair, repainted and used for 4-LOM in Empire Strikes Back. Thanks @ranchoobiwan for letting me get up close and personal with these!

Super honored to have worked on this droid with @mcmaster_robots and @themikesenna. Found some of the time lapse on my GoPro last night. I'll add some more soon. Here's McMaster's post about this droid which should credit everyone involved... from@mcmaster_robots----
"I had a little over two months to build R3-A3 from the Star Wars Rebels episode "Iron Squadron". It took several weeks to collect parts, and the actual build happened over five weeks.

While I was building the droid, @themikesenna was constructing the hardware interface for Watson as well as write the custom code.

@gordontarpley created several detail parts, did some fiberglass modifications to the dome and one foot shell, and completed the entire paint job, which came out beautifully.

Several parts came from parts suppliers within the builders club, including Daren Murrer, Michael Wheeler, Doug Dobyns and Michael Velcheck. Johnathan Andres provided the beautiful R4 dome as well as the foot shells.

Thanks to everyone who participated....I could not have built the droid so quickly without your help!" #ScienceAndStarWars #R3A3 #StarWars #Robot #Painting #Weathering #Workshop #Workbench #StarWarsRebels #Rebels #IBM #watson #droid #astromech #R3 #prop #propbuilding #R2builders #McMaster_Robots #GTprops #Maker #MakersNotFakers #GoPro #TimeLapse #moldmaking #weathering #Disney #Lucasfilm

Threw together some time lapse footage of assembling the 1:1 scale Jawa sandcrawler tread set this weekend at its permanent home, @ranchoobiwan. This was built by @mcmaster_robots, @maximass1138 and myself for Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, California. Thrilled that it's now part of the largest Star Wars collection in the world!

Giant thanks to @bjbenterprises for sponsoring this build!
Looking forward to finishing out the upper portion over the next year. Gonna look sweet!

Looks like the infamous @mcmaster_robots Sandcrawler found a permanent home at @ranchoobiwan !

See how the treads were made with BJB's BR-75D backed with TC-300 foam in this video https://youtu.be/q8CPFGmw_Fg

@gordontarpley and I each received a very generous present from #ranchoobiwan. Thank you! #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #spherobb8

#stevesansweet gave us a fun private tour of his massive collection. Always awesome to see the remarkably diverse selection of items spanning over 40 years of Star Wars memorabilia. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #ranchoobiwan #starwars #toys #collectables #museum #droids

Hey buddy!!! I'm super proud of this little guy so expect a few more photos... ;) Here's the project description mcmaster_robots wrote-up that I used in the last post. It credits all involved with this build.

If you're not already following @mcmaster_robots and @themikesenna , you should be! They're always making cool stuff.

So grateful to have been a part in the second episode of "Science and Star Wars". I was tasked with building R3-A3 from Star Wars Rebels. @themikesenna created the hardware/software interface for IBM's Watson and @gordontarpley created several components and painted the entire droid. Thanks to Lucasfilm and IBM for the opportunity. #mcmaster_robots #scienceandstarwars #lucasfilm #ibm #r3a3 #starwarsrebels #watson #gtprops #starwars #droid #automation #artificialintelligence

Wooohooo! The new Science and Star Wars is out today and look who made it on the show, my favorite doods @mcmaster_robots and @themikesenna!!! AND the R3 droid they built and programmed that I'm SUPER stoked to have painted and made a few parts for!

J.J. is coming back to direct Ep9. I called it back in 2015. Should have taken bets.
Btw check out that rad sandcrawler I helped @mcmaster_robots

Throwback Thursday to shooting a Robocop spoof with @SamMacaroni. The awesome @tom_woodruffjr was an extra. That was fun. Robocop's helmet was made by me (sculpted, molded, and cast) and painted by Studio ADI along with the rest of his costume.

Throwback Thursday to last year when my always crazy man-cave/workshop area was setup in a way I enjoyed. Rearranging it again now to regain some feng shui action.

Debating whether or not to sell this one... I posted a video on my YouTube channel about prepping and painting these resin castings.

Start to finish, how I turn a 3d modeled part into a finished, resin part.
Top left, I modeled the parts in Autodesk Fusion 360,
Middle left, parts were printed on the Formlabs Form2 3d printer,
Bottom left, 3d printed parts were cleaned, primed and clayed-up for molding.
Bottom middle, silicone molds were created.
Bottom right, resin copies were cast from the molds.
Top right, parts were prepped, and painted to look metallic, detail elements were painted and all pieces assemed.
Fun process!

Flashback Friday (and my five THOUSANDTH Instagram post) to the droids at Red Rock Canyon in 2013 and my first time spending a day with the awesome @mcmaster_robots!

While in Hollywood, @gordontarpley and I had to drop by Mel's for a quick snack. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #melsdrivein #americangraffiti

I can build a boat. Canoe?
I swear that sounds funnier when you say it out loud.

Just finished a Japanese-style canoe for a short film. It's 8' long and made on a very low budget with lots of shortcuts to keep the price down. It's a film prop, not built to be sea worthy, just has to float with no passenger for a few shots. That said, I believe it will work alright with a person inside and hopefully I can try it out Monday after they get their shots. Life jacket is ready!

Thanks @tomspinadesigns for sending this my way!
