Hi everyone!
In August, I will be moving from San Francisco to London. Is there much activity in this area? I would love to get involved. I currently have an X-wing pilot and I am working on a C-3PO.
Looking forward to meeting everyone,
Andrew

Hi Andrew
Good luck with your costume builds and with the move.
There are about 10 of us in the London area, plus a few 501st members. We tend to work together as much as possible. Once you are a full member, you can access the events forum and sign up for troops. We have them about once a month or so, including London Comicon which is in October. We are also within driving distance of Toronto, so events there are within reach too.
It will be nice to meet you. Perhaps we can arrange to get together on a patio or at someone's home. Keep us posted on your moving date.
Doug

Thanks! I plan to check out the 501st too, I have an anovos stormtrooper kit that's been on the back burner for a while.
I've read on the RPF that it can be difficult to get blasters through customs, but after reading the customs web site, it doesn't sound like it should be an issue. Do you have any experience with this?

Welcome Andrew.
From what I've read customs shouldn't be a big issue. I would suggest you clearly label or tag any questionable items with "movie costume prop replica". I've driven into Canada and mentioned that I had SW prop weapons, and the officer didn't even ask to see them. Airports may be a different experience. As someone that works in law-enforcement, I think it helps a lot if you're polite, honest and respectful to customs officers. And most are SW fans also so that helps foster friendly communication.
