I like this little guy. He’s a droid of sorts, a robot made of leftover parts. Maybe a prototype: still figuring out where everything goes.
Weren’t the first real robots much the same: a little bit of this, and cut that shorter, file that off over there, and weld this to that … and there you have it.
Function, not form: he’s less concerned with movie-star looks than what he can do.
Shake his snow globe and his world is electric with a shower of sparkling gold possibilities.
