Discovery Science Center Robotics Event

Today R2 joined several other droids and many members of the 501st and Rebel Legion, for the Discovery Science Center's Robotics exhibition that is taking place in Santa Ana, CA.

Along with my R2-D2, Chris Romines brought R2-A1, and Vince Sanchez brought R5-D4. Later, Max Cervantes brought RT-R2 and Mike Senna joined as a Stormtrooper.

As usual, the droids drew kids like flies to gasoline.

Michael McMaster came down for the day from Central California to tape the goings-on.

Watch out for those Jawas!

We had quite an impressive array of characters!

The Orange County Sheriff's Department also came with one of their bomb squad robots. These babies cost $200,000 apiece. Naturally, we studied the motors and batteries. Note Senna studying the underbelly. Boy or girl?

Mike put his armor and weaponry to good use.

It's been a while since R2 has had a chance to pose for pictures with his friends, he had a fun day.
