Fedcon (now in it´s 20th year) has become Europe´s largest general SciFi convention. This year, the R2 Builders were invited for the first time. Due to jobs, etc. we had to go for a limited presence, so just three droids during the weekdays, and a few more on Saturday. Yet, it was big fun to meet new people from other fan communities. Lucky Daniel was even featured in a hour-long TV piece for the German kid´s channel. We were also featured in the Saturday evening show, where my C-3PO costume, and Daniel´s R2 played a pivotal role in the "Muppet show"-themed jury break showpiece. A very brave young lady named Sonja climbed into my old and battered 3PO suit, and performed perfectly. She even had the guts to stay in the suit for a photo session afterwards. My hat off to so much bravery, and thank you very much, Sonja !
