VRC-4, Spy Drone

Originally created for Yakfinities #13, Droids of War, this is one of the two droids I finished out of the 5 or 6 I was working of for the project.

From my notes on the project at the time:

"Basically, they're all droids who had original functions that weren't directly related with combat. Either through reprogramming, or avoiding memory wipes long enough to develop distinct personalities, or even by accident, they all end up with combat based specialties. They're on the run, as most of their original owners want them back, and various corporations would like to figure out how they broke their programming. Corny as it may sound, they're like a droid version of the A-Team."

Originally a video-feed unit for the Holonet, VRC-4 now acts as the group's spy and scout. He's able to directly transmit to each member of the group, giving them all a birds-eye view of the battle field in real time. Equipped with a wide array of sensors, he's able to "see" in many different spectrums. Having severed himself from the long-range connection to the Holonet, VRC-4's transmitting now has a limited range.

VRC-4 was made from a GI Joe sigma six 2.5" BAT figure with claws from a medical droid. The original figure had very limited articulation, so I cut it up, turned it upside down, and gave it the new hands.

Parts Recipe:
Sigma Six Sky BAT - Body, Arms
21B Medical Droid - Claws

  1. Ooh, that's an older one, sir. But hasn't lost its charm! Will we see all the other droids you made, as well?

  2. Eventually! D3-M0 is already up, but I need to reshoot at least one of the others.
