Unfortunately, there was only 2 working droids that were able to attend this year. But fingers crossed that timings work out better next year!
A big draw for the crowds (besides us of course ;) ) was the reunion of Ewoks!! The actors, and
This is the second time I've met Warwick, and I can honestly say, I've gone from being a fan of his work to a fan of him. He is one of the hardest working and dedicated people I've ever met, and so down to earth and willing to talk to fans. He accosted us for about half an hour after the show just to ask us about out droids! He was a big fan of them! I thought he was going to ask us for autographs ;) But he was happy enough with us allowing him to take a few photos with them. So we of course got some too ;)
The UK R2 builders were asked to give a talk, and we were happy to oblige!
We kept it to who we are, what an astromech is and the basics of building one and where to find out more information, but we we got a lot of good feedback for it and hope to be asked again!
I was lucky enough to bump into Peter Brebner again (happy birthday dude!). He's a costumer in the UK with a great Threepio costume, so we were able to set up some photo ops for everyone that went down a treat :) Again, we couldn't resist a nice photo with our droids and us too ;)
We would like to give out a big THANK YOU! to all of the UK Garrison - you guys are all great and have a wonderful community. Also to Malika at the NSC for organising the event and make us so welcome, and to all of the actors that we met during the weekend. It was great to meet you all, drink with a few of you, and share your stories.
We can't wait for next time!
