This weeks 5 Fandom Friday prompt is your favorite droids, this should be interesting. Off the top of my head I can only think of like 4 droids from the Star Wars (SW) universe. A quick google search made me realize there were a lot more droids that did some really impactful stuff in the SW universe.
1.) R2-D2- One of my favorite heroes of the SW universe to me. I mean he is the one who keeps Luke’s ship in the air for most of the combat missions. I like his little beeps and boops. I even at one point had an R2-D2 cell phone charger that whirred and beeped like crazy when you had a phone plugged into him. Anyway R2 definitely tops my favorite droids list.
2.) BB-8- I fell head over heels for BB in the Force Awakens. What can I say I am a sucker for those adorable beeps and boops. Honestly they remind me a bit of dogs. Anyway when bb give Finn the thumbs up with his lighter that was one of my favorite moments. The way he is so faithful to Po. It’s just so freaking adorable.
3.) K-2SO- I really enjoyed one of the newest droids introduced into the Star Wars fandom. His quick wit and moment stealing humor really added some much needed comedic relief to Rogue One. Plus he was voiced by Alan Tudyck, so automatically he is a winner. I love much he back talked, kind of like C-3PO, but he was not so easy to bully around.
4.) C-3PO- I have to admire his persistence and I can level with his anxious pessimism. Lets be honest sometimes heroes ideas need to be tempered with a little reality. While 3PO was kind of annoying, I really respect someone who will give you the statistical facts in order to persuade you to not do anything. When it came down to it, he really came through, plus where would our heroes be if they didn’t have a translator!
5.) IG-88- He appeared in the Empire Strikes back. Originally he was an assassin droid, but he struck out on his own to become an independent bounty hunter. It is rare to see an independent droid, bounty hunter or not you have to respect the will power that must take. Also he just looks pretty cool.
