Photo TR: Adam goes to Star Wars Celebration V


Recommended Posts

Adam,

I see you found some of my 501st buddies. Great Report! So wanted to see this, so big thanks for the coverage.

 

Quick background on R2-KT:

Katey was the 501st Legion founder's daughter who died of cancer. The pink Astromech is a rolling memorial to her. I got to meet R2-KT this summer along with some of the folks from the same garrisons you saw. I'm a member of Alabama Garrison and hope to working with Central Florida after the Orlando move in a few weeks. And yes, the guys from Belgium are awesome...and insane! They did a great job on all the props and sets. Just wow!

 

We need to get together and talk shop sometime, but back to point, again, very cool report.

Have I made it clear how much I love Wampas?

IMGP4485.JPG.0113ba73e1e088da837a8f5eae8e4c55.JPG

Its a Starstroller 2000!

IMGP4488.JPG.bbbe3c4738e5ff0e0700ecc40926a3e0.JPG

Something, something, something... Darkside....

 

Something, something, something... Complete.

If I ever go the way of Shmi Skywalker, know that I wasn't the catalyst for a Jedi purge and the mass murder of younglings.

IMGP4496.JPG.193a451022e3da5f08a28100e2f865a2.JPG

In Mos Eisley, all affairs must be done covertly.

IMGP4498.JPG.044c7aab87bf4964757c99e1fcdf3c24.JPG

I found her on Tuskenwifefinder.com.

 

Don't judge me.

IMGP4503.JPG.7c9908d8a406ec84b36e24490f5b0334.JPG

None of these were any good to play as in Star Wars Battlefront II... Just so you know.

IMGP4504.JPG.e01cd02396c1a726e83060f0a5831d84.JPG

You'd be surprised to see how much of a presence Lego had at the event.

IMGP4505.JPG.273354d84102cb2b1414e2db1d3a5736.JPG

As mentioned before, the 501st Legion has a strong presence in the canon of Star Wars.

IMGP4524.JPG.51e67534ea4a5893ce6d82b3f5c95470.JPG

Hiya Brent!

IMGP4525.JPG.e6c953fa3b3d09f01471f426d1c7b14c.JPG

For those that do the things I can only dream of doing...

 

Followed by quickly abandoning that dream in favor of something more productive.

IMGP4527.JPG.c4400af6428c22af3ffb532543e56517.JPG

I'm pretty sure Bryan has a robot joke from some obscure movie (no, not Pootie Tang). Ask him for me.

 

Kay? Thanks.

IMGP4539.JPG.044ead6cce63f2306453573ab4822048.JPG

I am haunted by this image every night at the bombad hour of 3:00 am.

IMGP4541.JPG.a533f33a356d2a9a3b48720a2fa934fc.JPG

See? Star Wars and Disney? Mickey Ears?

 

It fits.

IMGP4542.JPG.bc83343902c165ef3e02cab87d74adb8.JPG

It fits so much that it needs two photos to prove its fitting.

IMGP4551.JPG.9da7e6343c037c28cf9908c6ffbda71f.JPG

We have fun.

IMGP4552.JPG.d5d0d449b3092edb288cd0be93a572f4.JPG

Royalty present and accounted for.

IMGP4553.JPG.78210abaa01a537427f45926ba9273e2.JPG

His attitude matched his outfit.

IMGP4554.JPG.ace4822aa6d4be67346bcfc167beb00a.JPG

Caption contest alert!

 

Get working on it!

IMGP4556.JPG.409c0f0f0d595e931c449ea8a7bdd0a0.JPG

Meet my role model.

IMGP4557.JPG.aaccd35aa327842c6bf5410ab9250b09.JPG

I WILL OWN YOU!!!

IMGP4561.JPG.c3f091b86da4d114cc98e7bcf2b66e0a.JPG

A most fitting end for a most annoying creature.

IMGP4562.JPG.d233707b532899d83aabfa981c797088.JPG

"The universe is an elephant!"

 

Robot Chicken Star Wars fans unite.

IMGP4568.JPG.b9aa4681d2a35d4794d0bdcf37122e39.JPG

Even though it took me nearly five minutes to get the ball to the second bar on the tube, my cousin instantly got it to hover at the top, only having difficulty calming her beta waves to allow the ball to lower.

IMGP4577.JPG.c6e3d0ee85fe7615c66a79d784d52c39.JPG

NO!!!!

IMGP4579.JPG.3de2a2794484c7ebc45516019a3f90e2.JPG

One of my favorite costumes of the entire event.

 

Robb, can I buy you one of these for Christmas?

IMGP4580.JPG.fbe851e20f3d8ea7db05c47db9193749.JPG

When Star Wars Episode 1 first came out, Pepsi produced these coolers as part of their promotion for the film. My dad ended up purchasing three for me, one of which is in my room at home, another in our bonus room and one more on our patio.

 

I found one more!

IMGP4581.JPG.4a01a78a4ae13db0be277fc2507f855c.JPG

I haven't been able to complete many of the remaining Star Wars books in my collection, but I may pick this one up soon because of the unique content behind it.

 

I mean, zombies in the Star Wars canon? That just screams to me as my dream Halloween Horror Nights house!

IMGP4584.JPG.09a36bdf330c5aa9ea703187c677376e.JPG

Youngling Fett.

IMGP4586.JPG.3ced22b74985a79aa20bd1fcc45a2944.JPG

The Lego mural was completed by the middle of the fourth and final day of the convention, and I'd say it was pretty impressive.

IMGP4589.JPG.49f07ae71e5ce63d830e895f713ddbeb.JPG

The chalk art was also done by the last day.

 

As revealed in the Main Event with Lucas, the guy on the left is actually Darth Maul's brother.

IMGP4593.JPG.4ff5ce1f1a1263abffede8683b50675f.JPG

Fans of the old FAO Schwartz location at Pointe Orlando may remember this little beauty, returning the city beautiful once more.

IMGP4598.JPG.54eb02bafcb930c38c951157f6794df1.JPG

This is how it should be done.

IMGP4600.JPG.72ac434e233fd969cc6387882d90ac11.JPG

The Hoth scene recreation was a popular part of the show floor.

IMGP4602.JPG.9480a9f9dffba66b29749fed7f2eee70.JPG

I love Family Guy!

IMGP4604.JPG.fec1fb6bde77fba5187afdad95845602.JPG

Get ready for Wampa Mania!

IMGP4605.JPG.607be18c99bb795cdbdcd85cd1892f29.JPG

Cookie Wampa!

IMGP4613.JPG.acd962c5249eedcfdeaea5ef3e8ca459.JPG

A Boy and His Wampa.

IMGP4615.JPG.79c318044595a930d97c7a61a66272a7.JPG

In the tundra, the frozen tundra,

The Wampa sleeps tonight.

IMGP4619.JPG.ead4a8cf493e6ca95880775caa126101.JPG

He found me soaking up the Florida sun and wanted some for himself.

IMGP4624.JPG.1736620b2cdb90a6659474b691290346.JPG

You tell me.

IMGP4626.JPG.7146f330c81faeb866766682c61ad10a.JPG

A look at the complete set of badges for the event...

IMGP4628.JPG.86c07d302cc33a98939652cecb697693.JPG

The surprise hit in terms of merchandise for the event was the retro Yoda ears cap.

IMGP4630.JPG.9d6c0fa4b14bf6cebfc2e45af5b46804.JPG

Clever details like this, I wasn't able to notice until the last day.

IMGP4635.JPG.310bba8ddf513224654398302d156b61.JPG

If this were me, I'd of been in heaven for life.

IMGP4636.JPG.069c681318590f34257eecc4f0232b4d.JPG

Those online battles really roughed him up!

IMGP4637.JPG.f3d8f1f8b4c071128e3fa7c9d184edee.JPG

Now this... This is cool!

I took this photo for the kilt. Not the female scout.

 

Just kidding!

IMGP4640.JPG.71d3543b54c82e8a0de735817613d207.JPG

We ran into Jay Laga'aia on the show floor!

IMGP4643.JPG.55df408a4b58399b7d1be3b16da2f00b.JPG

Its the dune frog from the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi!

IMGP4666.JPG.04cebea9981d962d1cdc6f85819e16c6.JPG

Hello... Ladies!

IMGP4668.JPG.45d1b0d22e7bfb24ba62f88e97023e58.JPG

Just saying, it will never get this bad for me.

IMGP4672.JPG.3e36bac8de9af54b5691435a02dcb2c9.JPG

For scaling purposes.

IMGP4675.JPG.c94e6ff590aa62098de35329aa7f260f.JPG

Lego Boba also had a pretty cool costume.

IMGP4677.JPG.6ca7d016e8256f4fed4f2b8118c860e1.JPG

I've never seen a Dengar costume before!

IMGP4678.JPG.3690f71fc18d0a6bfe50a5e7e0b4210b.JPG

Then he decided to hold me hostage, which (as you can see in the photo) actually took me by surprise!

IMGP4679.JPG.34aeeb9b5928b37d0c6c5095bf10c9d2.JPG

I took like 20 of these for my room!

IMGP4681.JPG.66cabdbd81fc0c5759567a6d06ef9809.JPG

Green=Star Trek

Pink=Star Wars

IMGP4682.JPG.39919654f5225330d12adc47ea03af0f.JPG

I'm about to be sniped!

IMGP4688.JPG.f8295f5a0c7e993d7e3a3a58baa306da.JPG

This is all kinds of awesome!

IMGP4690.JPG.0b28bdce96e2fd4070a5dd27fa91d10a.JPG

I didn't really know how to escape this situation...

IMGP4691.JPG.7ef7221ee57871648772b09d1f1c30fe.JPG

Kill shot!

IMGP4694.JPG.108da63cde7df80c24325ca7d06b19c7.JPG

A favorite photo from the convention...

IMGP4695.JPG.6ce9b82208d3022d093c75f6b0feb289.JPG

Not exactly sure how this fits, but here she is...

IMGP4697.JPG.02f5af21787ec6f99a6aa2193f288838.JPG

Jealous? You should be... I'm a Twi'ilek pimp!

IMGP4699.JPG.e6e0e038b51e27e9f943c188e1c89575.JPG

"Mhmm! Turkey leg! Turkey leg, turkey leg, turkey leg!"

IMGP4701.JPG.55ca24a00d725108afb6cd0a0871f0ad.JPG

Watch out... The pencil is mighty as the sword.

 

Or something like that.

IMGP4704.JPG.6ec9fc8b92c9812c766f9bf1d99e58f5.JPG

WANT.

IMGP4705.JPG.3dba019751c0c623d0010b97b355eac1.JPG

I agree.

IMGP4706.JPG.7ad8553f7fdb419507b4cf87f1e54113.JPG

If I had to be immortalized in my dying moments, I'd be content with this.

IMGP4709.JPG.7194608758926c66dc41e55bc894a93c.JPG

This booth was just far too tempting!

IMGP4710.JPG.3fd563ecf45f531d9bdca7c5fa8b73de.JPG

Far more entertaining than The Last Samurai was...

IMGP4712.JPG.b9ec0dea6d775de4cb25df1efca79601.JPG

Better than the Star Wars Holiday Special.

IMGP4714.JPG.5866b87ea9b99259a27ec5f76c6601f2.JPG

No comment needed.

IMGP4719.JPG.7a2158f2fabdc58542b1e43e4a706b6c.JPG

Despite the nerdiness of the legos, I'm quite proud of this photo.

IMGP4724.JPG.4cf631a37d82431731e6ccf5cc2b6664.JPG

Jacen and Jaina dueling in the halls...

 

I see a future Sword of the Jedi and Darth Caedus in their futures.

IMGP4725.JPG.c9a55f59142ae0f118cec7968bf3d712.JPG

A few more impressive costumes could be found before we hit the road.

IMGP4726.JPG.854588fbb699de1baff1d54454103cdd.JPG

Seriously, FedEx's item storage deal was a life saver during the event!

IMGP4727.JPG.909861377dfe86a2ecb456abd263cc0c.JPG

The only Wampa I didn't like at the event... He wouldn't even stop to take a photo with me.

IMGP4728.JPG.bca4f218cd1a3b228fe28246bcc76813.JPG

This guy was extremely friendly despite such a wicked appearance!

IMGP4730.JPG.e2d23d2220ae9318c75ca63f0a513011.JPG

They did a parade of droids to wrap up the event, which was sortof neat.

IMGP4737.JPG.0a30d69726c6b10b69a226c29a62bebc.JPG

Something about this image is just off...

IMGP4738.JPG.ba2746ec6e07b81e9409c213f435ac8f.JPG

Chewie came home with me following the event...

 

Overall, Celebration V has been hailed as a great success, not only for Lucas but for Orlando. With record numbers in attendance and a great response from attendees to the venue and the layout of the event, whispers of a return in three years have quickly begun to circulate.

 

I know I had an incredible time at the event and will be crossing my fingers in hopes that it does return to Orlando in three years for Celebration VI.
