A definite favorite robot of mine, I always wanted a good R2 build. I had a mindstorms build from long ago that I really didn't care for, so I was really
happy when LEGO announced this set. At 2127 pieces you may expect it to be bigger, but none the less a great set. It even has a retractable center leg.
And it starts with the body.

Adding the legs, still no foot to stand on.
