This past weekend was Planet Comicon!! One of the premier conventions in the midwest. This was a very special occasion for me as it marked the FIRST time R2 has ever driven on his own!! I'm going to show some pictures and pretty much leave it at that!
Here was the setup of our booth on Friday.
Here is Brian's R2-66 (A tribute to his 66' Mustang convertible)
Here's a picture of the rear of my R2. Notice how he's using scooter motors? The motors (Even at 12V) were plenty strong enough to move my all aluminum droid.
Here's my R2 displayed in front of the table.
A picture of R2 and Vader.
Here's a picture of our point of view!
Here is a very short (6 second) clip of my R2 driving!
Next on the list is to install my battery boxes and harnesses and hoses! If you're in the St. Louis Area, Wizard World (www.wizardworld.com) is coming up April 4-5-6, please stop by and see us there!!
