Knowing there was a good chance that I would be the "lone Rebel" yesterday, I brought along my Artoo unit to assist in holding off the hoards of Imperials at Cantigny for an appearance we did for "Toys For Tots".




All I can say is WOW. The place was packed all day. I have done a LOT of events over the past 10 years and I can honestly say that this event stands out as having some of the most enthusiastic patrons of all. Me and Artoo were there for about 4 hours and I don't think more than a minute or two went by that someone was not taking a photo with the group.

The Toys for Tots boxes were filling up nicely as people got into the event free if they brought a toy.

We were in a room with a local Lego builders group that was all part of the weekends activities. The Lego Builders were also over the top enthusiastic and had us do some photos with their Lego guitars. My Artoo officially became a rock star.








Even the people from the kitchen came out for some photos...
very cool!







A really good time was had by all...I wish I could get out there again today, but we are sending some of our finest there today...whether in Rebel or Imperial costume...it matters not....
