    Oct 13, 2009, 12:36 PM - Jeremy Bulloch at Romics (special gift for him) #1

    Hi everybody,
    as some of you know, we had a big event with the 501st here in Rome last weekend.
    Our Special Guest this year was Mr Jeremy Bulloch himself!!!!

    No need to say we were thrilled to have him around: awesome guy, really nice and fun!
    Once we found out he was the guest, we wanted to show our appreciation so we started to think what could be given to the man as a gift...
    something representative, but unique at the same time.

    So we set on one of my alluminum rockets... but it had to be special, so I made one in a special alloy, and polished it to chrome-like finish.
    With the support of other 501st members we created a special box for it, with a plaque to celebrate the event.

    So with no delay, here's a pic of Mr Bulloch when given the Award.

















    Here's the guys who worked on it:
    from left to right:
    Saverio (Snowflake), he designed and built the box
    the V-twins (doubleSpropS) behind Jeremy, did the detailing
    me (Dark-side), I built the rocket and stand
    Angela (ultraviolet) with Riccardo -not shown- did the main painting
    Lorenzo -not shown- did the plaque

    We actually finished building it at the Spaghetti Prop booth, right next to the 501st booth during the show!

    The V-twins (doubleSpropS) also presented him a caricature they did of Jeremy which was signed by the 501st members at the event.



    Last but not least we had the chance to provide Mr Bulloch with some Mandalorian backup! I'm Jango and Boba is one of the V-twins.








    I'd also like to point out that he did mention what a great bunch of people TDH is, and how cool it was that he was given a complete ESB suit!

    Here others random pics of the con.





























    Ciao ciao

    You know....I bet sometimes he wishes we'd just help pay for his car or something.


    P.S. - Padme looks realy good!
