Default Star Wars Celebration V Event....

Good friends at the R2 Builders site (in particular one Thomas Clark) sent me a DVD of images from the Star Wars Celebration V Event.

Let's just say that I am planning to go next year.

There are too many images for me to include them all so this is a highlighted version.

If like me you love the R2 Unit and it's construction then take a look at the very active site.

Enjoy

I will post more from these guys as time allows, what an event...!

Fantastic pictures - some really well framed compositions there, I love the 'field' of R2 units - many thanks for posting, commander.
That (perhaps) 1:1 T.I.E. Interceptor is incredible.

Great pics
I went to Celebration Europe, in London 2006, had a great time, met some really nice people from the R2-D2 builders group.

Yes, the photos are amazing, I feel like we are there. I love the full-scale TIE and Snowspeeder. That AT-AT is impressive. R2s, R2s everywhere!

I went with a gang of mates to CELEBRATION EUROPE at Excel in London. It was a spectacular event and one which I will never forget. Shook hands with Luke Skywalker himself, saw most of the cast of the original film and saw some amazing exhibits and more Storm Troopers than I think ever were assembled for the films themselves. These pictures bring back great memories.

Well it wouldn't have been so bad if there'd actually been a good looking one amongst them, but then again I'm just fussy

You mean the hairy dudes that's a different Con, "Bear fest"? Gosh did you see the one poor gal whose love pillows were spilling out of her top while the other attempted to fill theres?

What an amazing event with the full sized tie and snow speeder and countless R2 units and alot of skin? There will be a run on hotel hand lotion for all those lonely basement building R2 builders as the seeing the Princess Leia display???
