WonderCon 2014: Day 3

Today was the last day of WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center.There were about 7 droids today plus Pauls tread robot from "Empire". I was joined by Dan Johnson, Victor Franco, Chris Romine, Will Miyamoto and his family, Gene Arena, Russell R, and a few others. Victor Franco was bringing out his newly finished R4D5 when the U-bolt's nuts would not tighten. This meant the legs could not stay in place and R2 could only stand with support, no driving for him. At least we all got to see it in person.

Chris Romine flipped off Wall-E, why not baby predator (Kayla Miyaoto). This was all organized by her mom, Nikki Miyamoto,and Chris showered her with wafer cookies later.

WonderCon 2014: Day 2

Today was the second day of WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center. We had a few less droids but still had fun. Tomorrow is Easter for some so the crowds may die down. I was joined again by Victor Franco, Dan Johnson, Roy Powers, Russell. Chris Romine, Will Miyamoto (and his family), Gene Arena, and many more builders.

Fighting for equality for short stormtroopers!

Droids like Selfies too.

WonderCon 2014: DAY 1

Today was the first day of WonderCon where I had something close to a droid. I had the frame and dome out for display as the legs are needing work/replacing.
It was very crowded and lots of fun. I was joined by Victor Franco, Will Miyamoto, Chris Romine, Dan Johnson, Roy  Powers, Russell, Paul, and many more builders. I stayed from noon to 5:30 (not 7pm when the event ended) in the R2 Builders Club booth.

Almost all of the 12-14 droids we had today
