The UK R2 Builders at Celebration Europe 2016!

R2 Builders had an amazing time at Celebration Europe 3 at London's Excel centre on the 15th -17th of July this year. 

Not Only were there many UK builders, most of which, this was their first Celebration. Many of our friends from Europe and further afield made the trip, some their droids to exhibit!
We also shared our stand with other droids and builder groups for the first time we had Imperial mouse droids and the amazing BB-8 Builders Club.

The stand had an impressive showing of more than 50 droids with information describing each one in detail around the perimeter of the stand. Several photo opportunities were available with our standard club Sandcrawler and exclusive Rebellion Control Room and Jakku backdrops so everyone could catch a photo with their favorite droid in different settings.

Also a big thank to Bladez Toyz who donated a large quantity of inflatable RC Star Wars characters for the public to play with, which the kids loved and stopped them asking us if they could drive our droids!

We hoped that you enjoyed visiting the stand and a big thank you to all who participated in staffing the stand to our members.

Look forward to see you next time in  Orlando!

What's the Best thing About Our Club?

Everybody is welcome to join and build their childhood dream of owning a "real" R2 unit! However there are more than R2's in the club a large array of droids with different colours and designs can be found. The technical abilities of members and the droids vary from novice to experienced builders of many years.
