    Nov 26, 2012, 6:42 PM - My Landspeeder in the Hollywood Christmas Parade #1

    Hi Everyone,
    Thought I would share our experience last night,
    A friend got us in contact with Star Cars and we where asked to be in the Hollywood Christmas Parade "Toys for Tots". it was amazing it will be televised on Christmas Day, what a Blast our Landspeeder on the Red Carpet on Hollywood Boulevard couldn't fit R2 (bummer) but I was the Tusken Raider, my wife is Boushh Bounty hunter and our Kids, HannaH and Stone as Jawas. 3.5 miles of complete joy!!!! Here are a couple of links:

    Nice!

    Seeing a landspeeder juxtaposed onto real-world streets reminds me of that "we're moving" postcard that Ralph McQuarrie did for ILM.



    So the Tusken/Jawa motif fits perfectly.

    Awesome detail!

    You'd think they'd proof read before posting.

    More than 16 million toys were collected last year and handed out to 7.2 children, said Retired Lt.
    16M toys? Lucky 7 of the kids. Not sure about the other 0.2 though
