Introduction: McDonald's R2D2


McDonald's are doing a Star Wars promotion on their Happy Meals in the UK.

Now, my boys outgrew Happy Meals years ago, but they had this freebie card model, and who can resist R2D2?  I realise that most people reading this are not in the UK, so I scanned the original* for you to print out yourselves.

Making it is, frankly, easy, but it is made of quite thick card, so the final model is surprisingly sturdy, and satisfying to stand on one's PC.



* This is, probably, a technical breach of copyright, but since I'm leaving in all the corporate imagery, I bet McD don't mind...

How does someone not know how to do this

It's not "not know", it's "not be able" - the template was not available in all countries, and is now not officially available anywhere.

Just download one of the images I scanned - click the small "i" in the top-left corner of the images to find the larger files.

This is really cool. I screen captured it with windows note book, printed it, cut it out with xacto and ruler, assembled it and now it proudly sits on my computer. Thank you so much. You turned a 62 year old man into a kid again!

awesome, is there a pdf of the scan or... either its great. Could always print out a copy of your cut out template. Thank you, and may the force be with you, even if Lucas isn't

author
Kiteman (author)iminthebathroom2011-03-02

No PDF, I'm afraid - just insert the image into a Word document and print that.

author
iminthebathroom (author)Kiteman2011-03-02

yes yes, that what I was thinking. May even vector it with inkscape or something

. No probably about it and it's not very technical. ;)

author
Kiteman (author)NachoMahma2011-02-27

Ah, but is anybody going to complain?

author
NachoMahma (author)Kiteman2011-02-27

. George Lucas, et al?

author
valhallas_end (author)NachoMahma2011-02-27

Lucas has been whining at any fringe breaches for the past 30 years, and taken a lot of flak for the lengths he's gone. I think Kite's okay this one time.

author
NachoMahma (author)valhallas_end2011-02-27

. I'm just picking nits. Even if someone does get their feathers ruffled, the worst that should happen is Robot getting a cease & desist letter. But I'm no lawyer, nor do I portray one on TV.

author
valhallas_end (author)NachoMahma2011-02-27

Haha, very true (although, I'm kind of curious - just how much trolling does Lucas himself do, and how much is allocated to subordinates? They seem to find tiny issues anywhere and everywhere on the internet these days). Welp, if they do send any correspondence, I'd think it would deserve a place of "honor" on Instructables. After all, it's not every day a forum member brings a scathing attack from a film legend down upon an audience of geeks*, nerds*, etc. If it had his signature on it, boom - freebies in print form!

*No offense meant to geeks or nerds. I'm typing this whilst studying fracture mechanics for a graduate course.

.  Most ppl on this site are very proud to be referred to as geeks and nerds. ;)
