Special thanks are due to, alphabetically:
A detailed left-rear view of the MSE-6 messenger droid. Note the tail hook, which possibly allows the droid to drag other objects on errands. What is the nature of the rows of six cylindrical structures and sockets at the front and rear of the droid's upper surface? Do these modules carry messages (justifying the droid's usual role), or perhaps replacable energy cells to power the droid itself?
A view of the front-left of the MSE-6 droid. In this view it appears that the axel of the rear wheels is wider than the axel of the front wheels.
A direct left-side view concentrating on a large panel with a grid of protrubences. What is this seemingly ungainly structure? Part of an interface for the droid's message memory or programming? (It looks very much like an exposed digital circuit board.) Is it an attachment base for mounting tools, optional appendages or other packages? Is it a radiator for waste heat, akin to the cooling structure on a home computer's microprocessor?
Somewhat blurry left-front view.
Somewhat blurry left-rear view.
