The 501st Legion, Rebel Legion and R2-A1 and Mike Sennas R2-D2 were at the Honda Center to add atmosphere for the Star Wars in Concert event. Let me tell you, all the events we have done, this has got to be the most that we have ever had our picture taken! The costumer and droids we a big hit and the fans went crazy. The only bad part is is was so busy, that I did not get a chance to take any pictures!
A1 hit the party scene at Skateland in Northridge last night! We were there to help the Robot Chicken Crew promote the release of there Star Wars Episode II DVD release!
Seth, Matt and the 501st Crew! Rileah Vanderbilt from the winner of the 2009 Lucasfilm Fan film awardSaber! Actress Ming Na Seth and A1 on the Red Carpet On the Skate Floor! The Robot Chicken!!!Yup, that's Fez! Wilmer Valderrama The Robot Chicken Crew and my Birthday Cake!!!
A1 invaded the San Diego Convention center this week for Comic COn 2009. I was invited to hang out at the Dark Horse Comics booth to help promote thier comics.
Vince Sanchez and his R2-D2 and use trying to get into the Convention Center!
This little guys mom told me we had spent all day looking for a black R2 toy! He was so excited when he found one at a vendor. But then he saw the real deal and went bonkers :) Mary Franklin from Lucas Art Mom and daughter love!
A1 was invited to the star filled premier of the movie Fanboys. IF you remember from my earlier post, A1 is in the movie :) So I am glad to see it finally hit the big screen. And as usual the droid was a favorite at the event. Victor Franco and his R2-D2 joined us as well as the Godfather of R2's, Mike Senna.
Vic and Mike unloading the R2. The cast from L to R, Sam Huntington, Kristen Bell, Chris Marquette, Dan Folger, Kyle Newman and Jamie King. The Director, Kyle Newman. He told me that they added some sound to A1 for the movie, gotta see what they did! Kyle Newman's wife, Jamie King was there also, she just loved the droids! Dan Folger, Hutch in the movie took the time to take a pic with all the Droid builders and asume the Droid builders pose! There were a lot of TV crews there, this is the reporter for Fox News, gotta find that clip! David Denman for the TV series "The Office" came by and took a pic with us. And I think this is my favorite pic of the whole night! Selma Blair came by and said she loved the droids! Here's a clip where Jamie confesses her love for the droids....
This was a great event! A1 and I had a blast hanging out with the 501st and Rebel Legion folks. Now I gotta go see the movie on Friday :)
A1 reported for duty for the Frank and Sons Collectibles Star Wars day. This is always a great event. The 50st and the droids we mobbed by adoring fans! R2 was able to meet and patrol the area with a new Naboo Era droid, R2-A6. Dan Logan (Young Boba Fett), Amy Allen (Aayla Secura), Bonnie Piesse (Young Aunt Baru) and Matt Wood (Voice of General Grievous) were all at the show signing autographs.
I would like to thank R2-A6 driver Gene Arena, of the R2 Builders club and a So Cal Garrison member for helping me out today. Im my rush to get out of the house, I forgot a set of batteries for A1. Gene was nice enough to let me borrow a set of his A6 batteries. Thanks again buddy!!!!
A1 invaded the Anaheim Convention Center today to support the Lucasfilm Licensee Creative Imaginations. They opened a line of Star Wars scrapbooking gear. Great event, lots of folks who were complete geeks. Not our normal crowd, one kid at the whole show (And he was one of ours!). Paris Hilton was there, but A1 had no desire to go meet her :P
I built R2-A1 because almost every droid builder in So Cal has a R2-D2. Plus, I am a member of the 501st and we don't need no stinking good guy droids running around.
So I hope you enjoy the site and have some fun with R2-A1!
He's not evil...just misunderstood!
