Star Wars Rebels Chopper Astro Droid Replica: Art–who?

by Lambert Varias

We usually see cosplays and replicas of fictional characters after they’ve become popular. But this astromech droid has been brought to life even if his show hasn’t aired yet. C1-10P aka Chopper is one of the lead characters in Star Wars Rebels, an upcoming animated TV series that takes place shortly before Star Wars: Episode IV. To promote the show, Lucasfilm created a real life version of the droid.

Lucasfilm spent a total of around 87 days working on the robot. Chopper’s design is based on Ralph McQuarrie’s early sketches for R2-D2. In Star Wars Rebels the poor rebels created Chopper using spare parts. As for his personality, the creators of the show said that if Artoo is a dog, Chopper is a cat. He doesn’t need your approval and he does things when he wants to. But ultimately he’s a loyal ally. You can learn more about Chopper by watching this video:

Here’s the real life Chopper, a remote-controlled robot with wheels, arms and a camera. Watch the video to see him hang out with Wall-E and Artoo.

Claptrap and Chopper would get along. You can see more of the grumpy droid when Star Wars Rebels launches this Fall.
