The dome is an integral part of R2D2. It defines who R2D2 is. Inside his dome contains all the lights and mechanics for making the dome rotate. Building a dome can be very hard since it has many pieces and is not perfectly round. Some choose to have one made of aluminum on a parts run and others choose to have it built from a styrene mold. The dome can be very costly with all the parts needed to complete the dome and to make it shine. This is the best place to find anything you want about the dome!
