If you could have your own personal droid, but only one, which type of droid would you prefer to have? An Artoo unit or a Threepio protocol droid?

Hands down, R2.

Great resources and abilities this one has :cool:.

R2. He's less annoying.

3PO...so I could do international(intergalactic) business and make more $$$$$$$$$

Then he and I would build an R2 unit!

R2
Pros:
Could probably fix my car if it breaks down.
Certainly less annoying
All his gadgets would come in handy for household repairs
Holographic projector would be great for showing home movies

Cons:
Would burn holes in my carpet using rockets to get up stairs
Probably can't reach anything in my car that would need fixing
I can't understand a thing he says
Very feisty

C3P0
Pros:
Speaks many languages
Huamn like design would make it easier to have him clean the
house
Probably has a mute button somewhere
Could sell gold coverings for cash to buy more star wars toys
Very obedient

Cons:
A bit of a sissy
Oil bath would take up large amount of room in basement

After looking at the pros and cons, I'm going to have to go with C3PO. He'd just be more practical.

Artoo for actual tasks. Threepio for companionship.

Artoo has a bachelor's degree in Pimp.

Threepio has a G.E.D. is cool.

Don't know how this thread can proceed ANY further without dropping the Deuce into the mix...

I would take Twobers over ANYTHING else in the whole SW Universe- he'd keep your beer/pop cold and fresh (in that stomach container thingy), always has an encouraging thing to say, and would come in REAL handy whenever I manage to mangle myself

He's make a pretty slick cook, too, I bet, being a medical droid he'd have a good handle on nutrition.

And I also imagine it'd be fun to have little trivia contests with him, he HAS seen a lot after all... One vote for 21B!!!!

Caesar would pick C3P0 just so he could tell him over and over how much he dislikes him.

Artoo. C-3PO is pretty much useless.

Threepio unit. if it had to be the actual C-3PO then i'd have his vocoder changed and fix that lower leg casing so he's all bling. I'd have his memory wiped of personality and just have him be a plain worker droid. accompany me to foreign places and save me having to learn the lingo. He'd spend most of his time deactivated though. just sat there as a cool ornament. or opponent in chinese checkers.

I have no need for a protocol droid, and I don't need to translate Bocce, so it's Artoo all the way.

Gonna second both votes there, not much else to say...'cept that I bet on top of the cooler thingy in his belly, I bet he'd also let you borrow his drinking straw. :grin:

I don't know why I have this thought in my head, probably because mabs is talkin' about a droid here and robots in the Trans thread, but if 2-1B could transform, what would he turn into ? :confused:

R2.

Pros:
- Would look cool with his head sticking through the car roof.
- Holds many things
- Launches stuff
- Quiet rolling as opposed to clank-clank-clank footsteps
- Built-in security system
- Shock annoying little neighborhood kids creatures

Cons:
- Bulky
- Either set fire to something to fly up/down stairs or take forever to climb up/down stairs
- Might show holographic recordings of things people don't need to see


Pros definitely outweigh the cons, R2 all the way!

Is it wrong to think that drinkin from 21-B's "mouth hose" would be kinda cool? I don't think so either :D

PF- good thought on the "things folks don't need to see", brought a whole line of "inappropriate holograms" to mind- think David Hasselhoff and the cheeseburger type footage :)

I knew Caesar would go for the 'Deuce

I honestly don't see how you could have R2 without C3....

That's like cookie dough without cookie...

The Stooges without Curly...

Kermit without Fozzy...

Big Bird without Snufflell.....whatever...

Batman without Alfred...

Strippers without alcohol.....
