This is the droid your looking for.

Just seen the trailer for episode 7 and thought this droid looked awesome. I still need to add more details but I just wanted to try and get the model done ASAP but cant wait to finish it when I get more details. The model is 1:1 scale with the head being roughly being the same diameter as R2’s. But this can be changed later when we know more about the droid.
