My Day With R2-D2
Posted by Dustin on April 21, 2011 at 12:01 PM CST:

The weekend of September 21st 2001, I was able to visit the Skywalker Ranch in California, and stay at Steve Sansweet's house for the weekend with my fellow Rebelscum staffers.

The highlight however for me was on Saturday when Don Bies showed up with an original 1975 R2-D2 unit he was using to take some stills for an upcoming project he couldn't talk to us about. We now know that this project was the web documentary R2-D2 : Beneath The Dome that you can view over at Starwars.com.

We all were pretty stoked just to be able to be a witness to this all and to be able to talk to Don about his droid wrangling duties. Then he asked one of us to jump in the shot with R2-D2 and Dave beat me to the punch only to give in cause he knew what a fan I was. ( Thanks Dave! ) While I was the
only one who got pictures taken by Don Bies, everyone did get their turn for photo ops with R2-D2!

Unfortunately none of the pictures taken with me in them were used. My agent really screwed me on this one! :-) Check out the pictures below!
