"Star Wars was a pretty big deal for me as a kid. I was only 2 when the movie came out, and I can't even remember if I saw it or not in the theater. The characters and story were known to many of us mainly from the toys! The toys! Oh, they were wonderful, and we played with them for hours (and wore out the BEST and Sears catalogue)! One of my favorite action figures was the Power Droid, and I didn't really know much about the little guy, but for some reason, he (I pictured it being male for some reason) captivated my imagination. I realized at some time that he's barely even in the movie, which added to his mystique. Over the years he functioned as the worn-out, floppy-legged power supply for numerous Transformers, GI Joe's and Construx. He is small and cute and found a place in my childhood heart. I still have the little guy. This piece is an ode to the Power Droid!"- Jeff Soto
