Scum Report:

It was a grand day out Saturday at Victoria Gardens! The Droid Builders were most pleased to attend with extended invite through the Rebel Legion Sunrider Base! We had 3 droids from the lovely Bakersfield Droid Builders (Will, Brian & Jackie) show along with 2 Scum droids and B1-H1 and his lil MSE buddy! We were able to be ready in time for the procession this year ! Event kicks off with the character procession through the gardens and into the library to get everyone excited for the day! Droid Builders brought up the rear and closed the procession in style.

The event was lively and full of activities for the kiddies a live cover band and plenty of photo opportunities with all of the many awesome characters that came out to play. The Rebel Legion & 501st Legion had an awesome Endor backdrop complete with Endor bunker and full size speeder bike ! Was a warm lovely Southern California day and the snow cones hit the spot! The Droid Builders got to meet and take a quick picture with Daniel Logan who played young Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones! among many other things.

A day full of Star Wars smiles !

Hope to see you next year!

R2LA 15 [T27]

Droid Builder Party


Hosted by Mr. Senna each year, R2LA is a gathering of droid builders in the Southern California area (mostly) although we have build visitors from out of state as well.

Super fun event collaborating with builders who we haven’t met in person and are basically celebrities in our opinion!

Ardy Jo’s Monster Wampa MSE rolled in with the recently finished Echo Base Beer Transport! Wampa MSE was surprisingly capable of toting a 6 pack ! Krankmeister brought his awesome BB-8E & MSE. He powered on the SNES Classic when it started getting a little dark out and played some Mario World, Donkey Kong and Super Star Wars right off BB-8E.

Great to see a couple choppers and so many MSEs this year! We were especially privileged to have Johnny 5, L3-37, K2-SO, C3-PO and Boba Fett ! They made for some great pix!

As usual, we had some MSE fun out in the street. Couple of race offs and the Mousezillas had a race with dudes riding on top of them! Racing quickly turns into crashes (some intentional !). Monster Inferno MSE had some battle damage. Ardy Jo had the bright idea of initiating a Diddy Kong Racing/Mario Kart balloon pop challenge. She secured a balloon to the back of Inferno MSE and zoomed around. The MSE sharks quickly caught on and attempted to pop the balloon. Only last about 30 seconds haha 2nd balloon popped off and bounced around unwilling to pop.

Fun time with crafty smart peeps!
