Build Your Own Gonk Droid

Some fans say Gonk the Power Droid is an out-dated, useless hunk of metal, I say he’s the unsung hero of the saga. Either way, now you have a chance to make your own Gonk to sit around the house or keep you company as you work at your desk.

Total construction time was about 8 hours. My Gonk has working lights in the faceplate. I used Radio Shack switches and lights. I worked on the wiring while the paint was drying. I will include what I did to get the lights to work but you don’t need to do that for yours. This was a very easy and fun project.

Check out the DIY Gonk instructions here.
