Star Wars Celebration III, Indianapolis

This HUGE Star Wars convention is the place to be for serious Star Wars fans. R2-D2 made the cross-country trip in our friend's SUV, while Michael flew back with friends. The R2 Builders have an exhibit room of their own. Michael had a crazy autograph room adventure with R2-D2 and movie stars Daniel Logan (young Boba Fett) and Bai Ling (a senator edited out of the film). Kenny Baker, the actor who was inside the original R2-D2 in some scenes of the film, was there, as well as numerous original trilogy actors who signed R2's inner panel. The guys even ran into one fighter pilot actor at a local bar and had drinks together.
