Last weekend was ComicCon in stockholm where for the firsttime all 3 of my droids attended. R2, the oldest preformed as well as always. Wall*E, with all the upgrades was a champ. He was very popular. Bt more than BB-8 even. With all the latest upgrades it ready made a difference. He appeared very life like. I only wish I could have recorded a video but can’t drive and film at the same time. More upgrades are coming. BB-8, well performed OK but he’ll require a lot of tweaking before all the bugs are ironed out. I guess that’s why its called a hobby, lol. Ive be asked what will I do next and I actually have a project in mind but that I’ll save for a later post. In the mean time enjoy the snapshots for the weekend. As an added bonus I R2 Builders arranged to have Oliver Steeples ( R2 builder from the force awakens) and Matt Denton (BB-8 builder from the force awakens) there for the entire weekend as our guests, participate in panels and so forth. It was a real treat and got all the insider info about TFA and episode VIII 😉
This past weekend I was invited to attend the Sweden Games Conference and festival in Skövde, Sweden. I was very reluctant but when they offered to donate a large sum of money to my favorite charity I couldn’t resist. They also offered to transport all my droids to the event as well. So R2, Wall-e and BB-8 were shipped off early last week. IT WAS A BLAST! I’ve never felt so welcomed to any event as I was for this event. I’ll have to iron out a few glitches with BB-8 but will love to do this again next year 😊
Its been a long time coming but here’s the only video I’ve managed to make of my BB-8 before I had him and all my other droids shipped off for an event later this week. Its a video of him while sitting in his charging stand. I’m glad with the results so far. I will adjust the controls slightly and will do a proper video of him rolling around when I return from that event. I’m sure I’ll find thousands of bugs to fix but that’s why its called a hobby.
