Frank and Sons Star Wars Day

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!!!!

Hobby and Craft Convention - Part 2

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

Creative Imagination Party

A1 i s BACK! After a brief period on non activity A1 was back in the saddle today! R2 was invited to join the 501st Stormtrooper Legion for a LucasFilm Licensee Creative Imaginations promotion. A1 patrolled the floor with the Trooper and everyone loved them. A1 will be heading out for day 2 at the Convention Center tomorrow.

On a side note, A1 had a electronics issue that almost kept him out of this event! But my good friend and fellow droid builder, Victor Franco, stepped up to the plate and helped me out big time. Do to him being the great guy that he is, A1 will make all this weekends events. So just wanted to give him a shout and say "Thanks buddy"!!!!
