I’m new to Instructables, and this is my first origami design that I’ve published. I did some research on the internet and found out that there isn’t any easily attainable battle droid designs that I could find, so I came up with one myself. The character I’m portraying is in episode I through III of the Star Wars movies. Skill Level: Intermediate

Step 1:

Start with a square piece of paper, no smaller than 8” by 8”. Collapse along the creases, forming a square base.

Step 2:

Fold the top corners inward to the center crease.

Step 3:

Fold down the tip, crease well.

Step 4:

Unfold.

Step 5:

The 3 creases we've made in the previous steps will help us make the petal fold. Lift the bottom corner upwards, and fold along the crease lines and flatten to form a triangle.

Step 6:

Repeat steps 2-5 on the reverse side.

Step 7:

Fold down both upper triangles.

Step 8:

Now you have a petal fold! Lift back up just the top flap. A bit tedious, but need to make sure reverse flap stays down.

Step 9:

Fold in half. Rotate 90°.

Step 10:

Outside reverse fold.

Step 11:

Outside reverse fold the head.

Step 12:

Reverse fold the nose and arms.

Step 13:

Fold down the side flap to form a leg. Repeat behind.

Step 14:

Fold the leg to the side. Repeat behind.

Step 15:

Reverse fold to form the feet and fold down the tip. Then fold the top part of the leg inward. Repeat behind.

Step 16:

This is what the foot should look like.

Step 17:

Almost there. Now comes the tricky part.

Step 18:

Fold up a portion of the “tail” (this will become the droid’s backpack) flush with the top. Repeat behind.

Step 19:

Try to pull the “tail” up almost flush with the back of the head.

Step 20:

As you can see, tucking in a portion of the “tail” helps get it this way.

Step 21:

There! Now reverse fold the tip of the completed “backpack”.

Step 22:

Finished. Create more to build your own droid army!

Step 23:

Step 24:

<p>this is really cool! I couldn't find any other battle droids except for junk ones</p>
<p>Thanks chewacca, This was my very first origami design, but I thought it was kinda cool. I mean, I have not been able to find <em>any</em> design for the battle droid worth bothering over. Right now I'm looking into a dalek design (as seen in <em>Doctor Who</em>).</p>
<p>Very cool! Thanks for sharing how you made this. </p>
<p>Thanks for the support.</p>
