    I took my 5 year old daughter to Adventurecon in Knoxville yesterday. It was our first time going to a convention and i have to say how friendly everyone was there, I didnt know a single person there, yet we were treated like family. We didnt want to leave. My little girl fell in love with R2-D2, she cried when we were leaving so we went back in so she could say goodbye to R2. The gentlman operating him was terrific, R2 chased her around and she loved it. We will definately be going back next year.

    You know I may still have the files to do a 1:1 scale paper R2 if you are interested. Basically do like the guys do with pepekura and she could have an R2 of her own.

    Thanks man. You should have HEARD the Terminator. He had a real Austrian accent. Sounded just like Arnold, played the part REALLY well.
