KP speaks with Guy Vardaman of the R2 Builders Council at the Droid Races on the con floor at Star Wars Celebration V. In this adventure in pop culture, 80 member-built Star Wars droids (robots) in multiple categories (by motor type) race for the finish line in front of hundreds of excited fans. Builders invest thousands of dollars, and hundreds of man hours to build their version of the Star Wars robots that made key and supporting characters in the series. Bots race (by remote control) through pre-determined courses on the con floor and are scored by time accuracy – it isn’t as easy as you may think!
