Frank & Son Event

Today R2 paid a visit to the Frank & Son Collectible Show, to get a chance to visit with fans and celebrities alike. The venue was hosting a Star Wars Day, with several Star Wars celebrities, and members of the 501st and other Star Wars costuming groups.

I arrived with Mike Senna around 11:00am. (Mike left his droid at home for this one.) Chris Romines was already there with R2-A1.

As usual, it didn't take long for the kids to start swarming.

Bonnie Piesse (Aunt Beru from Episodes II and III) was kind enough to take a picture with me and R2, and sign the back panel.

Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett from Episode II) also took a picture with me and R2, and signed the back panel.

In between celebrity visits, more kids took pictures with R2.

Ray Park (Darth Maul from Episode I) also posed and signed the back panel.

And the folks just kept coming.

A very enjoyable day.

Right now there aren't any events on R2's calendar, so it may be quiet for a while again. We'll see.

Nice Blog...I got the link to your blog from another R2 Builder. I see you got a picture of my kids with R2 at Frank and Sons. It looks great...I can't wait to start my own.

Hi Paul,

How funny, I had no idea you were there with your kids.

R2's mission is to make people happy, so hopefully he was able to do that this past weekend. :)

Let me know if you have any questions about the blog.
