New photos have been released for the upcoming Star Wars story film Rogue One. They feature a new Astromech droid called C2-B5. What is striking about this android is the all black finish it has. This prompted me to design an all black hilt to celebrate the Empire finally “getting the droid they were looking for”?
This is called Empire Droid,
I imagined C2-B5 being owned by a Dark Lord and similarly to R2-D2 had the ability to store a Lightsaber for it’s owner to use in times of need. It will be interesting to see if C2-B5 builds as big a following as R2-D2 has. Who knows they may even have a (lightsaber?) battle between themselves. We will find out soon.
Till then thanks for looking in once again.
