    Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

    Hey everyone,
    I'm stuck at work latenight, and figured no better time than now to post a few pics from the Philadelphia event Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. I was priviledged to be able to troop with Garrison Carida for this as my first event(i'll start a different thread for that), and I can't speak higjhy enough of everyone I met. Special thanks to Darryl and Jason for making it an amazing time!! I know that many will not be able to attend, so I figured I'd share some cool pics of the exhibit:

    Of course i'd throw a Fett shot in, c'mon it IS TDH. And see, Chicks really DO dig Boba Fett:

    Great event! Was there also a replica of the Millenium Falcon's pilot's seats?

    I've never noticed your sig before. Give me a month, or so, and we'll all be fighting over who troops which event... lol... How many Boba's does Carida have? You, Darryl, Harry (???), and soon to be ME!!

    Shoot me a PM to say hi then.

    BTW, the exhibit looks great, gonna try to get my family down there before it closes.

    Congrats on your first troop as Fett. You and I now have something in common, we have both done our first Fett troops with garrison Carida. They are a GREAT group of folks.

    I could not agree more. These guys made me feel like part of the family, and there's no better Fett mentor than Darryl!!

    I had the opportunity to see Lucky's Fett up close at the Franklin Institute, and though he wasnt so talkative, the suit looked amazing.
    Well done!

    Loved it when I trooped the WSMI exhibit when it was at Chicago, but you got lucky. Our museum wouldn't let us carry blasters..... Good thing I went in Jedi

    edit:
    Here's a pic, I'm on the far left, opposite Vader:

    Re: Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

    Hey, I trooped that event too yesterday (as a Stormtrooper)! I say a ROTJ Fett, but didn't get a chance to speak to you. There were so many folks there from so many Garrisons. It was a blast!


    Did you see the ROTJ Fett blaster in the case? It was marked as an ESB blaster...

    Re: Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

    I'll be going with my family on Sunday. Will people be trooping then? I haven't trooped yet myself.

    I'm in the 501st as a Stormtrooper. Maybe by next year as an ESB Boba. I'd love to see some costumers there!

    Take care!

    The last I saw, it was going to be running until May 4th.

    I shot up from Maryland. I hope it was not a one time deal with the 501st being there because it was fun. At diner they mentioned us coming back, but I have not seen any dates for the 501st's return.

    Cool! Is there anyone else planning a visit before it leaves on May 4th? Right now I don't have a weekend planned. Would like to plan a weekend where I might meet some folks from the boards.

    Re: Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

    If you get a chance to go see it I would definately recommend going. I went twice when it was in Columbus, Ohio and I had a blast both times. I took around 250 pics between the two visits.

    Great video. Awesome trooping event, and first time I'd pulled out the zam costume since D'con. Carida did a superb job, I must say.

    Thank you! It was cool to see your fett. I wish we could've gotten more poses together! Mebbe some other event.
