Entry for December 07, 2005

[Originally published on Yahoo! 360°]

Last week I got in the mail a DVD one of the R2-D2 Builders Club (henceforth will be known as the Club) members made highlighting the Club at CIII (C3, or Celebration III). It is amazing. There are all kinds of pictures and video of the droids at work entertaining the CIII attendies. A big bonus is video of the one and only "Jedi Master George Lucas" visiting the Club's display room. He was very impressed with the craftmenship and asked "where were you guys when I started this whole thing?" Rick McCallum, the producer for the Star Wars prequals, commented on how cheap the droids were and that they now know where to go for droids for the T.V. series. He might have been joking about that last part, but it would be cool if he was being serious.
