You can only pick one. Who is your droid buddy for life?
His Holy Majesty has ruled artificial intelligence to be blasphemy, heretic.
Between those two, I'd pick R2.
If I get to choose any, I'd go with an EVE unit.
Then use it to breed more Gundrone
Between the two, I'd pick Chopper.
His front arm is pretty cool.

There are better partners than Zobby, perhaps, but a reliable pet like him is the sort of thing I'd like
and this coming from a cat person.
So, here's a question. Which way is it walking?
>implying anything Star Wars related will ever be truly forgotten
>Interstellar is the best movie of the 2010s so far
I choose Tachikoma.
>>You will never have a Tachikoma to bro around town with.
It hurts to live.
>somebody thought that it was a good idea to program a tachikoma with that personality.
I'm sure the choice was intentional given that its sunny disposition betrays the fact that it's a piece of military-grade hardware. While it was a cute idea, I'd rather it be more of a "Target acquired. Kill all humans." type of robot.
yeah Chopper's cool
I loved how Rebels shows that the Rex series is really okay (and still voiced by Pee-Wee), it was just the one you get on your ride that's a spaz.
>goes out on a date with you
>HOW MANY FUCKING TIMES I HAVE TO TELL YOU DONT GRAB MY FUCKING HAND
>both of you go to the mechanic cause your car just broke
>YEAH RIGHT , I KNEW THAT THAT FUCKING PART CAUSED THE PROBLEM IF YOU HAVENT NOTICED IM ACTUALLY AN SKILLED TECHNICIAN AND IM A GRILL!! X4
I keep forgetting that Artoo is, by TFA, pretty fucking old. I guess it's a testament to how durable tech is in the Star Wars universe when relics like the Falcon and Threepio/Artoo are still holding together and functional.
The Visual Dictionary explicitly states that R2 is starting to "show his age". And instead of being recycled the Resistance has granted him a semi-retirement as thanks for his heroics.
>No Gonk droid
I'm not angry, just disappointed.
because Artoo's personality quirks make him useful and even better
queerbot's just annoying so nobody cares
Also R2's told the war story of the droid he covered in oil and set on fire while laughing enough that people know not to cross him
They weren't programmed with that personality, they were programmed with a basic capacity for learning, that their personalities developed, and so rapidly as well, was why they were almost all sent into the furnace singing We Are All Alive.
I'm hoping his defrag implies he'll be a bit more like his spritely old self now that he's awake. As it is, if Luke really does come back to the general public and gets anywhere near an X-Wing, we all know R-2 is going to be his wingdroid, for better or worse.
BB-8 was a kawaii little fuck, but I have no idea what the intended task of the BB series is.
there is no way that little baby sphere has all of the important shit that made the R series so kickass.
SCR5000 Si/FL CAFEL II.
The movies are supposed to be the stories that R2D2 is telling to the mysterious Whills in the far future. That's why they all start with "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".
I can't deal with the idea of R2 having long outlived all his old friends with his memories as the only thing left of them.
He's the real Star Wars protagonist.
Presumably it has more efficient but less tools. In addition it's much more portable, and a hell of alot faster than the R series (BB-8 is able to keep up with Finn and Rey outrunning explosions)
No, Poe describes him as a BB-series and makes sure to mention he's white and orange when talking to Finn. Which means he would have others of the same make like him.
I did not expect BB8 to be nearly as adorable as he turned out to be. Putting the head on the ball and letting it be able to move up and down really added a great level of expressiveness.
Between those two, I'd go with R2.
If it was for any choice, well, see pic.
Even if they'd found Luke prior to that it's not like that would have stopped the First Order's plan any earlier.
Without a new Jedi to train he'd just tell them to screw off probably. And Rey only ended with the Resistance thanks to the string of events that was the movie.
I'd like to keep mechazawa around, I've heard he is really good with electronics
I'll take a device.
>Can function as a mobile phone that can call across worlds
>It can also do mundane everyday shit like compiling data for a report you need to do or even drive your car for you
>Is a multi-mode weapon
>Have a loyal as fuck AI that will take the risk of its own destruction if it meant that it will be able to help you fight a strong enemy and win.
>As long as its master still fights, the device will not stop, even if its master is completely battered and is about to collapse anytime, even if the device is completely wrecked, if its master wants to fight, the device will continue supporting its master to the best of its abilities
>When you are feeling down, it will cheer you up in its own way, even if its completely wrecked and it takes everything just to move a single part
That's only for the high-end devices. Unless you're -the- little girl or you're high-ranked enough, being a footsoldier in the TSAB entails having what amounts to a talking rifle.
Granted you can probably make small talk to it, but it's not going to roll off your bedside and into the nearest TSAB lab and ask for LOAD CARTRIDGE upgrades.
Alternatively, you can hop over into the Innocent spinoff where your likelihood of getting a special snowflake device is much higher (since it, being, well, card games in virtual reality).
>being a footsoldier in the TSAB entails having what amounts to a talking rifle.
>Not working hard enough to get to higher ranks or get noticed by the talent hunting people like Nanoha
>Not building your own device
Some devices don't even trace their origins to professional device mechanics.
Bardiche was made by Linith, a goddamn familiar.
Asteion is made by Hayate, Agito, and Rein.
Lutecia, a fucking teenage girl, built Brunzel for Corona.
And then there's Raising Heart, whose origins is a complete mystery.
