R2d2

Hi DJ, heard you did some hacking on an R2D2 at Calgary--any info going online on hacking the R2D2 for EZ-Robot?? Saw your video--nice job.:)

It is just the Hasbro R2D2 hard to find too much on hacking it especially using EZ Robot
#3  
i have the same one,both the interactive R2-D2 AND A SMALLER R2-D2 both have the room for EZB
and the bigger one interactive has room for a small computer,both by HASBRO,both very easy to find on ebay low cost
on the interactive R2-D2 on ebay now $29 AT walmart new $99.99 free shipping
i bought one at walmart for the price before i saw EZB,then bought another one on ebay $33 used
smaller one mostly goes for under $10,bought to and EZB fits inside with servos

I found a broken r2 for 60. I did hack it. I'm doing a build video shortly:)
#7  
Ive gotten a couple for about $80 each time. Usually for that price there is something missing or broken. Perfect for us to HACK! They arent cheap for sure!
#8  
I got two Hasbro's for about $80 each, both working but one is "moody" which the kids love. Waiting to hack one of them.

I got 5 of the 15" Hasbro voice command R2D2 , im gonna keep 2 of them for EZ-B mods, anyone want one for $40 + shipping? they are defective/broken one way or another, i didn't even bother testing them but excellent for EZ-Robot hack. I was gonna put them up on eBay but thought i'd offer them here first. After all we are the only people that will accept broken toys and turn them into cool robots:)

Thats very generous of you to do!
#11  
Love to see what others can come up with, you never know:)

hi Louis T,

I am really interested in getting an R2D2 for my next project! I live in the US as well. If you get a chance, can you email me the details of the 3 robots and where you're located so i could figure out the shipping costs?

I know this is an old thread but I had a question if anyone could maybe lead me in the right direction.

Is it possible to take a Hasbro Interactive R2D2 and :

A: Change the voice recognition phrases?
ex. Change "Hey R2" to "Hey BB-8"

B: Change his sound fx responses?

I am a complete noob on this so any reference, links, videos, etc. appreciated!
