R2D2 Goes to MegaCon 2009

Our bud, Jim Quinlan, just got back from MegaCon 2009 that ran through March 1, and has pronounced it and his R2D2 successes. He did note that some of the lights weren't working on Robby and the ears on B9 stopped, but we figure it is amazing that he even builds them.

You can see about a gazillion shots from the event on his website as well as some of R5-PQ, a droid built by Jim's friend Brad in honor of his son Paul. What a wonderful thing it would be if we all had someone build a bot in our honor when we leave our physical forms.
