Electronics Today International - Dec, 1977 Issue
When I was trying to track down Paul6700's Treadwell tracks reference I rediscovered an issue of Electronics Today International that has a few unique images of some of the droids, including an good mouse (vertical top greebles!), Mouse innards, Treadwell bits, and LIN images.  Also some of Artoo's 2-3-2 mechanism.

Anyhoo, I've posted the PDF I found of the article here, which included these images:

I didn't see this frame in the film, so I guess it was an outtake or promo or something.

More detail than I've ever seen of a LIN droid.

Anyway, I'll post about the individual photos in the appropriate droid subforums, but I thought people'd be interested in the whole article.
