Building R2-D2, with LEGOs

While democracy was dying to thunderous applause in Ohio this weekend, my young-at-heart-ling and I ventured to Tysons Corner, where a LEGO master was constructing an 8-foot replica of R2-D2.

Did the Empire strike back?

No, builders consulted a scale model in constructing the 8-foot version.

Scores of padawans, ages 4 and above, helped by assembling the small clusters of bricks that comprised the robot.

But with time running out, perhaps LEGO Jedi masters were the robot’s only hope.
