But on the bright side......Churros!!!!!
James Hance is the artist behind that design, "Wookie the Chew." Check it out, it's an absolutely adorable idea.
Would I be completely crazy to go to DHS tomorrow, or do you think it would be manageable? That R2 bucket sold me; I want to go to check it out but not if it's person to person everywhere you go!
i'm taking my familly down for the first time in a long time. parents, sister, her husband....i'm afraid they're never gonna come back after they see me nerd out at dhs next sunday....can't wait.
As for the R2 bucket and mug, they're both very cool. They are indeed the same as last year (and the R2 popcorn bucket, anyway, was available pretty much all year at Studios), but the offerings for the mug in particular are vastly better this year. To get it before, you had to buy either a chocolate mousse or the sugar-free strawberry shortcake, both of which are pretty lousy. I actually took about two spoonfuls of the mousse before just throwing it away; I only wanted the R2 mug, after all. This year, you can get the mug with an Icee-like drink and I think a smoothie or iced coffee.
Pics to come!
I've got my eyes on the donald maul ceramic mug! It looks friggin awesome...and its nice to see they have the yoda backpack back at sww. I wear mine whenever I go to the park and everybody goes nuts for it.
I know I'm sooo late to the conversations, but I absolutely adore the idea of building your own droid R2DS is my favorite star wars character!!! /envious ^^
me too! hopefully they will still have plenty of different pieces I would love to make at least 2.
Wow! Wish I could go to Star wars weekend. The merchandise looks great!
Collecting Vinylmation since August 2011
As promised, some merch pics!
First up, arguably the most adorable souvenir, Darth Maul Donald, next to the LE Donald as Savage Opress action figure:
Next, the logo pin:
The pin booster pack:
The Piece of the Death Star pin, and on the left, one of the two coolest souvenirs this year:
Yes, it's a Star Tours name badge. And yes, they're all custom engraved with your name as spelled in Aurebesh (the common written language of the galaxy far, far away ). You even get to pick your "home planet" from a list.
Note - most of those belong to our fellow members.
And finally, the item I am beyond in with:
I framed it today. What you are looking at is a hand-printed, individually numbered, LE 100, autographed Mimoco print. I was on the fence with buying a Mimobot flash drive, but I knew beforehand about the prints, and I am so glad I caved and bought an R2 drive. Scott Seraydarian of Mimoco was signing Mimobots, and if you got a Mimobot signed, he was also signing and giving out these. Honestly, the picture doesn't even do it justice. That's number 3. Of 100. And I am totally tempted to go get another Mimobot and hope Scott's still got some left.
We had a blast this weekend.. The crowds late yesterday were
Light at the merch tent as compared to the cluster on Friday morning.. The R2 stein and popcorn buckets are very cool.. Be sure to get one of each since they are 2 different items.. If you want the star wars series 1 vinyls, there are a few to be had
34.95 sure is pricey though for 4 gigs.
maybe i'll have to snatch them online.
I LOVE the pin of the two stormtroopers riding midway mania, lolol!
If I collected pins...I would totally have to have that one!
Thanks for all the pictures Phylers!
Wow, I wish SWW would come to DLR one year. Would make it so much easier for us West Coasters to go. Glad you are all having fun and picking up some amazing loot!
