Star Wars Server Droids for WestHost

We do web hosting - shared hosting, dedicated servers, cloud hosting, and domain registration.
What's your vision?
We will be launching a new ad campaign with a Star Wars theme. In our banner ads and landing pages we want to include images of servers which are skinned as R2D2 and C3PO. That's where you come in. We need you to design 2 dedicated servers for us that look like R2D2 and C3PO. One key to this project/job is maintaining a delicate balance to make these look like dedicated servers, while retaining the look of R2D2 and C3PO. You can design the servers as 2, or 3 dimensional - whichever looks best to you. Since C3PO has an actual face, it may be difficult to incorporate his face in the server without making it look too complicated, so if you don't include it, that's fine, but if you're able to make it work in the design that's even better. Your designs may be simple or detailed. It really depends on the execution of your ideas that will make the difference in the end. We've attached an example of how someone used the design of R2D2 to skin an XBOX. This is a great example of what we're aiming to mimic. Lastly, please don't put the words "Star Wars", "C3PO", "R2D2" or anything else that might be trademarked. Best of luck to all. And may the force be with you.
Our target audience is mostly technical people (IT reps) and some business owners in the US. We figure many of them are fans of Star Wars, so they may know the look and feel of these droids (R2D2 and C3PO) better than you do. :) You're welcome to prove us wrong by sending some killer designs.
