Very interesting stuff are happening within the Protocol-community nowadays. At least 2 Protocol Droids are almost finished; Stukatrooper’s one being finished VM’d, Cymico’s going to pick his up from the VM shop as we speak.
3 other droids are also very close to be ready for VM (including mine).
Here is a small teaser from Stukatrooper, which shows his Threepio with dented head as from ANH (Dent on top the head and one on the cheek, including some imperfections near the left eye “brow”). His Threepio was actually VM’d by the same company who chromed the original suit for ANH!
