May The Fourth Be With You!

ThinkGeek pin

This seemed appropriate given the lack of updates over the past year. Turns out I’ve been working on my own lifesize R2-D2. You can check out my build log at http://r2build.lukejedi.info

I’m hoping to get back to my Luke Jedi focus in the coming year.

Celebration VI LukeJedi.info Patch

This patch will be available at Star Wars Celebration VI. To obtain the patch, you have to find me (Bob Martinazzi), introduce yourself, and ask for the patch. How can you find Bob? On a daily basis, a specific time and location will be posted by 9am on this site where you can obtain the patch. You will also find me occasionally at the Collecting Track panels, room W303 or DCSWCC Booth #548, plus I’ll be at the ‘Meet the DCSWCC’ event in the collectors lounge W304CD. I will likely wear either a Luke Jedi t-shirt or a DCSWCC t-shirt throughout Celebration. Please note that there is a limited number of patches available each day. First ask, first served, limit one per person. Happy collecting!

LukeJedi.info has joined forces with six other fine Star Wars related organizations, if you collect all seven patches you are going to create one big awesome patch. Look for more information at the DCSWCC booth.
