Star Wars Droid: "Droideka" Destroyer Droid (Wheel Configuration) 

     
 
Droideka

The compliment to the other Destroyer Droid, I wanted to create a Droideka in "wheel" configuration. I started by shortening the spine, and curling it further into the hip sphere. I reshaped the individual hip joints to make the forward legs parallel to the centerline, and the rear leg fully extended. The shoulders were cut and folded back into the body, and the arms were rotated in. Finally, I replaced the vinyl field projectors with drilled plastic ones, and I moved the third eye below the upper shell.

Instead of the shiny new finish I gave the other Droideka, I wanted this one to look like an old warhorse. It was painted gray and rust, and was heavily weathered and battle scarred.
