    Well, kind of.
    The state of Queensland (just a name to most of us Folks) is the last port of call for Yoda in Auatralia. We have a few good Theme Parks here in South-East Queensland, and one of them (Dreamworld) has a section called "Wiggles World". Essentially it is a part of the park that has 2 family Wiggles Themed rides, a restraunt, and a play area themed like Captain Feathersword's ship (where the staff in the Wiggles themed character suits usually are for photos).

    This said, the QldFF have not yet decided on a final schedule for Yoda's stay with us, as we, like many other future hosts, have no real idea when he'll actually arrive. ;) If we take him to Dreamworld, I'll be sure to get some pics of him in the Wiggles World area.

    Oh I know Yoda's taking his sweet time enjoying the sites along his route. But when he finally gets there if you are able to bring him to Wiggles World my kids would love it (OK...I'm a little enamoured with them as well...I admit it...)

    Hey guys, just dropping by to let you know that the little green dude will be leaving on Monday the 14th. Oh, btw, I should probably inform you that throughout his whole stay here in Athens, the tracking info on travelswithyoda.com has been obsolete. Hope you liked the pics.

    Yes, time, a commodity which is affordable by less and less people everyday... It's a bummer, I know...



    That was one funny badge... And it's so nice to hear that the news of Yoda's whereabouts spread so much joy in the world![face_laugh]

    Hey!:)

    I'm sure that you guys'd like to know that little master was shipped out to Malaysia this morning! I got a tracking ID for him, although I'm quite certain that we won't have to make use of it.

    @ Kim & Rach: It's been great to be part of this beautiful adventure guys, thanks.

    I hope Master Yoda hasn't fallen foul of any "crossing the Equator" initiations?

    Good news! Yoda has arrived in Malaysia! He's FINALLY OUT OF EUROPE!!!

    He's got a full weekend ahead of him, joinging the Malaysian myscififan group at the Movie Carnival 2007 this weekend to celebrate the Star Wars 30 Anniversary events. :D

    After this, he's off to Singapore, then will be heading to Oceania to join the New Zealand fan force then finally get to Australia. w00t!

    Not sure if you've been updated by his hosts, but has the scrapbook been updated along the way? How many pages will we get?
    Just curious.

    Yoda's been having fun in Malaysia. I've been having problems getting ahold of the Singapore and New Zealand contacts, but it looks like the MySciFi group who took Yoda in Malaysia will be awesome enough to take him on to Singapore, and fortunately our NZ contact popped up. So never fear! The tour goes on!

    Yoda even went to a SciFi convention in Malaysia!

    Yoda's still heading to Singapore. However, new pictures of him have surfaced from the Cinema Online convention he attended:

    That's Yoda with miss Veron Khoo and Chin Vin Sen, the head organizer of the convention.
