R2-KT's Adventures in 2013


December 1, 2013: R2-KT trooped with the 501st Legion Old Line Garrison and Garrison Tyranus to help promote a new Museum of Science Fiction! It was a glorious day spent touring the nation's capital and shooting some great footage for the museum's PR department. As you can see, we're doing our part to make it an "Imperial Senate"!

October 2013: Carolina Garrison members Tom Gardner and Ken Jordan are deployed by Lord Vader on a rescue mission to pick up R2-KT from her drop-off point from CE2 in Orlando, Florida. The troopers get a little confused along the way, trying to establish which one is the droid they are looking for!



July 26-28, 2013:

R2-KT makes her first appearance in Europe! Celebration Europe II was held in Essen, Germany over the weekend of July 26-28 and thousands of Star Wars fans came to celebrate the magic that is that galaxy far, far away. And a certain pink droid was placed on her very own throne at the center of the R2 Builders area - how cool is that? There will be no living with her now...



May 18, 2013:

After marching in the Disney Star Wars Weekends parade it was time for KT to get a bubble-bath droid-style (bubble wrap in her crate) and into her escape pod to be shipped to Germany for Celebration Europe II! Freeman shipping took good care of her and the boys were happy to sport a KT Fan Club patch to show they were on team pink. Next stop: Essen, Germany! Bon voyage, KT!



May 18, 2013:

R2-KT marched with The 501st Legion in the Star Wars Weekends parade opening weekend. Disney was moved by KT's story and agreed she is a tribute to the love and power of Star Wars fans. It was an arduous journey and nothing was confirmed til the last minute, but she was a big hit and everyone was proud of our girl making her debut in the house of mouse!


April 14, 2013:

Richard is a special little boy in Congaree, SC who suffers from the same tumor Katie had. R2-KT and the Carolina Garrison paid him a visit and presented gifts to cheer him up. His mom assured us that his 'thumbs up' was his way of saying he loved it. Courage like Richard and his family have are inspirational and we're just glad we could be there for them.
