Fan Days III Plano, TX

DSC04221I had a blast at the Star Wars’ Fan Days III in Plano October 24th & 25th. Coming from Burbank to Texas made for a rushed visit; however, any chance for me to come back to Texas to see some of my friends, family and play with a few droids while having a few laughs made it all worth it! I was disappointed to hear that Jose’s R2 couldn’t make the Fan Days event because of a busted ankle (R2). That was a Bummer and that Philip Wise STILL hasn’t started his R2 (but he is still collecting parts).  But we did have an excellent turn out. Our room mostly stayed full and we fielded a lot of questions on construction techniques, costs, skills required, local clubs, etc. I debuted the R4 head with the new stickers and got a lot of compliments. I think the biggest hit was C3PO when he was talking to the kids (the big ones as well as the small ones).  And of course when Jeff’s R2 went over to C3PO, it was a photo frenzy …….

Of course there were a few that also enjoyed the Pit droid working on R2 while the Battle droid was overseeing things……..and then there was a land speeder…….. Pretty Cool Stuff :)
