|All aluminum, welded body construction - R2.0 Droid Build|
2011 was my first Comic Con. San Diego was everything I had hoped it would be. What makes it great isn't just the convention happenings; in fact, I saw nearly everything I wanted to see in the first 3 days (most Star Wars events were Thursday/Friday). What makes Comic Con great is the people; old friends from Celebration and many new ones.
Speaking of cons, DroidCon in Indianapolis was great! If a gathering of passionate fans getting together to celebrate and share a common interest for 2 days sounds like something you would like, DroidCon was exactly the right event for you. It should be back in 2013 after Celebration VI in 2012.
Another great fan organization event I loved in 2011 was TrooperFest in Detroit. It was great having out with folks from garrisons around the country and spending lots of (quality) time with Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas.
The new theme to this blog should be a major hint of something on the horizon. I have been working since November of 2010 on an idea that brings my two passions together in a big way; I hope to be able to share more news on that soon. It truly does bring together A Long Time Ago and a Galaxy Far, Far Away....
