TK .5, the Travelling Trooper, admires the view of Makahari/Tokyo Bay from our hotel room window.
Welcome to Japan! TK .5 greets my roomate Kathy Van B. (CO of the Midwest Garrison) and me at our hotel room in the APA Hotel, Tokyo Bay
The view from our hotel room.
On our way out, Kathy and I run into several members of the Belgian Props Crew, with whom I was assigned to work over the weekend. Little did I know what awaited me! ;)
An amazing life-size Dewback model, built by Goro of the Japanese Garrison. It's even more impressive in person!
Kathy sets TK .5 up for a ride.
My turn on the Dewback!
I know those droids are around here somewhere...
A close-up of the Dewback. Amazing!
Two, the CO of the 501st Japanese Garrison, explains the symbols on Kathy's head scarf.
Another of Goro's amazing props--George Lucas in carbonite.
TK .5 surveys a map of the Legion's presence throughout the world.
OK, we had to ask--just WHAT is a Petbottle? All sorts of images came to mind...
TK .5 finds the 501st muster area.
Steve Sansweet and Kathy at the Vader project.
One of my favorite helmets at the Vader project. It's very appropriate for Celebration Japan!
A life-size Jabba, built by the Prospector's Squad of the Belgian Props Crew. Another amazing prop!
Kathy and TK .5 at Jabba's palace.
TK .5 must have offended Jabba in some way...
One view of a life-size speeder bike built by Stefan Cembolista of the Belgian Props Crew. Yet another amazing prop!
TK .5 goes for a joy ride. Or tries to, anyway.
Another view of the bike.
The Belgian Props Crew hard at work putting together the Outrider/Millenium Falcon set, built by the Flanders Dragon Squad.
Stefan takes a moment for a photo op!
