Today I trekked with my friend to the Star Wars Invasion at Dublin. It turned out to be a fantastic weekend. Star Wars Fans from all over the globe took time out to join in the Unbelievable Fun in that "Galaxy far far away"....... The senators of the Emerald Garrison seen in the photo came out in force to entertain "the fans" and it wasn't long before everyone was smiling. Can you name the actors in the photo? The funny thing is I'm a trekker who found himself surrounded by thousands of sci-fi fans probably "StarWarsians" so I kept stump about my "trekkie" allegiance for good reason. Thousands packed into the enclosed stadium which was organised brilliantly and ran like clockwork. On my way in I bought some Sci-Fi merchandise and took lots of photographs with my digital camera for later. It was smile or be arrested! During the show Colm and I got the chance to mix with several costumed characters. The place was packed with them and fans waving light sabers through the air!
"I demand the uniform code of justice before my trial." Yes, its me Spacerguy!
Darth Vader, Commander Bly, Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Shock trooper, Sand trooper, Scout trooper, R2D2, Clone Captain and Clone Commander were all there walking around taking photo turns with the fans.The biggest moment for my friend Colm was meeting Julian Glover aka General Veers and then it happened, I met and spoke with Kenny Baker aka R2-D2. For a brief moment in time and space, the galaxy stood very still and I was unbelievably happy, beaming all over the place. Its funny but smiles work wonders on everyone. It was great to get a chance to chat with real Stars Wars actors which I'll remember forevermore. I was momentarily star struck by these wonderful actors and friends of the Star Wars universe. Julian Glover kindly agreed to stand beside me and Colm took our photo! ....Imagine! Forever immortalized with General Veers himself in living color! Questions and Answer's followed later with Tarfful, Admiral Piett, R2D2, Greedo, Boba Fett and General Veers saying their favourite movie lines. Well, does anyone have any ideas what lines they said?
Live Long and erm end transmission.
