We came, we saw, we blogged the heck out of WonderCon 2008 in San Francisco on Feb. 22-24!
The big bang for Star Wars fans this year was our Lucasfilm presentation complete with a Star Wars: The Clone Wars interview with Supervising Director Dave Filoni and Producer Catherine Winder, updates on the upcoming LucasArts game The Force Unleashed, and news about Celebration Japan! Check out the entire presentation here:
On Saturday, You Can Draw: Star Wars book author Bonnie Burton and illustrator Tom Hodges, along with Starwars.com artist Katie Cook, entertained fans and beginner artists with tutorials on how to draw banthas, stormtroopers, Yoda, Anakin and Darth Maul. Elvis Trooper stopped by for a few tips as well!
Later, we stopped by the R2-D2 Builders panel on how you can make your own astromech. But mostly we were thrilled that a few R2-D2 units wanted to say hello to one fan interested in sending a rather important message.
The Starwars.com team also wandered around looking for the coolest Star Wars stuff spotted in comic bins and toy shleves, while spotting not only our friends in the 501st Legion, San Francisco Fan Force and the Rebel Legion, but also fans decked out in costumes from the Star Wars galaxy and beyond.
