About Me

Thanks for visiting my site. My name is Jamie McShan and I live in Dripping Springs Texas with my beautiful wife Emily, my daughter and son, and of course my little buddy, R2-D2. I started construction of R2 in Aug of 2008 and completed him in June of 2010. He is constructed of wood, plastic, aluminum, steel and just about every other material you can think of. He is fully functional and remote control with full sound, lights and action! He weighs around 140 lbs and is powerful enough to haul around his own weight and that of my son or daughter going for a ride on his back. I have taken R2 to many local events including 2 trips to my kids school, a local pre-school, a visit to the library in Bee Caves, a children’s museum in Houston and he was fortunate enough to be invited to be on stage with "Weird" Al Yankovic in San Antonio. He was also at the Star Wars in Concert 100th show in Austin and got a special photo shoot with Anthony Daniels (C-3P0).

If you have any questions for me or R2, drop us a line.
