R2-D2 Builder’s Club member Victor Franco! He tells us about R2’s red carpet strolls, his starring commercials and the way he came to the rescue at our wedding; also what he thinks about the recent news of J.J. Abrams using a fan-made R2-D2 from the R2 Builders Club. Star Wars Episode VII continues the trend of fans being tapped to work on beloved franchises.
Several cosplayers and fans talk to us at Long Beach Comic-Con last weekend. Does the world need this many Loki’s? Answer: Apparently. And for the first time ever we get to hear a rapping C-3PO and a beat-boxing R2-D2 in our Vintage Video segment.
