May the 4th be With You!

In honor of the unofficial Star Wars holiday, I decided to finally post some pictures from Star Wars Celebration V that my wife and I attended last August. It was the first time that we had ever attended an event like it and we had a really good time. It was also pretty cool to see all of the old toys I use to have. I was very shocked to see how much they were worth and kicked myself now and then for not taking better care of them. It was disappointing that we weren’t able to make it to any of the big speaking events, like George Lucas, but there was still plenty to do and see.

 Greeted by the darkside!

C3PO and R2D2 made out of Legos.

I got to meet R2.

My wife got to meet a pink R2.

A little run in with the Emperor.

I couldn’t believe how big this display was!

Posing with Han. He didn’t mind.

I love that my wife was into posing for these pics too!

Han wore a hat too, right?

Hoth EchoBase Ice Bar

EchoBase has good adult beverages.

May need Luke’s help on this one.

There are rumors and a Facebook page to have Orlando as the host city again for SWC VI. If not, we may even consider traveling if it’s in the States.

This month Disney’s Hollywood Studios is having their annual Star Wars weekend, so we will definitely be there for that and this time we’ll bring my son. He should enjoy the Ewoks.

May the 4th be with you!
