Building Something out of Nothing
Creativity is a way to free the mind and help you escape. The desire to design, create, and build drives us to construct props, replicas, and original works. We invite you to explore our site and share in our many projects. We hope to inspire you to look at the world the way we do, and perhaps even you will spend a little time with your imagination and potentially build something out of nothing.
What's new around here?
Coming Soon . . .
In the coming months we will begin construction on the actual "Smugglers Room." The project that started it all has never been fully realized, and has undergone many reiterations and re-designs. The overall space of the room and its configuration had certainly limited options, and it was only by the assistance of another talented builder that the design direction of the space was changed. We are at the tail end of the design and drafting process, and we can't wait to begin the construction and sharing the build with all of you. So stay tuned and we look forward to bringing you along this journey!
Droid Socket . . .
A new project we have undertaken at The Smugglers Room is the obscure Droid Socket. This was first seen in Star Wars IV A New Hope when R2D2 "plugs in" to find the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker and the band of rescuers. It has been a great little project, and if you would like your own please email us and we would be happy to provide you further information about the project.
L3-FTY has been a great build, and we are very proud to showcase him here. He is on his way to Star Wars Celebration Orlando as we speak. You can view L3-FTY's journey here
Than you all for stopping by!
Prop Builds and Other Projects
Our Astromech's are unique. They are completely hand made from scratch, fully mobile with working electronics, and a perfect 2/3 scaled size. Each project built has been done so out of our affection for one of Star Wars most beloved characters.
Many people have media rooms or rec rooms. Its a great place to entertain or watch the big game. But how many people do you know convert there media room into a Star Wars Entertainment Room? You'll find some unique designs and some familiar props in this space.
Props and replicas are what drove us to this hobby. Though we focused heavily on the Astromech building, there are plenty of iconic props that are not only a desire to have, but a joy to build.
The Universes that people like George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Ridley Scott to name a few, have given fans like us a vast arena to create and build our own versions. We can pull from iconic forms and designs while coming up with a fresh new look. The Smugglers spend a great deal of time in this arena, and these are the result of those endeavors . . . coming soon!
