When working at Pinewood it is always important to keep our creations covered especially when transporting them around the studio. An Astromech is not the easiest shape to hide but at least with a cover it is protected from the elements and from prying eyes and cameras!
Fabrication within the CFX department produced the covers, made to measure. I have now taken the R2 cover design used at Pinewood to offer to fellow builders so to protect their droids from the elements.
I am pleased to be able to offer a selection of colours and an option to have the cover embroidered with either the Droid Name, the Builders Name or Both (One on the front and one on the back). I place these towards the hem so the reverse of the embroidery does not rub on the droid.
Material used is lightweight water resistant Polyester reinforced with a ripstop to help strengthen the fabric. I use Polyester as it has better UV stability and colour fastness than nylon. Approximate weight: 65gsm (grammes per square metre).
PLEASE NOTE: As there are so many colour options and possible embroidery I am not able to stock these so they are made to order. Font used is a standard outline font used by the embroiderer. Delivery will be as soon as possible but with the time it takes to order the material in (too many different colours for me to hold in stock), Helen my wife to make them, send them off to the Embroiderer and then wait for them to come back to ship out to you can take a few weeks!
