    Hello Los Angeles! Rachel from San Diego/Inland Empire here.

    After following Vader's World Tour a few years back, Master--Kenobi of the Santa Cruz Fanforce decided to do the same. She is sending her fried Interactive Yoda (who met his doom during a certain scene in Velvet Goldmine) on a US and World tour.

    I'm helping her plan the trip, and we are trying to see which Fanforce would like to be apart of this tour.

    Care to join us? ;)

    The original planning thread is Here, and a website is in the works. :D

    ~~Cheers
    Rachel

    Brief update.

    I spoke to Master--Kenobi yesterday at Disneyland and the website is still being constructed. She's very eager to send the little green guy on his way and is thrilled that so many people are interested. :D As soon as we get a definite list of groups involved (more keep joining!), then we will start planning out a route for him to travel. :)

    Thanks again! :D

    NEWS:

    1) We are putting a cap on joining the tour. The last day to join is next Friday, July 8th. (If any of the other Fanforces in your area wish to join, let them know quick!) ;)

    2) Each fanforce will have 2 weeks with Yoda. The 2 weeks will start the day Yoda arrives. We ask that in those 2 weeks you take photos of him in "touristy, famous, or just plain cool" locations, and that he is shipped to the next Fanforce before the 2 weeks are up. We will be sending a logbook around with Yoda. The layout of the book has not been completely decided, yet once we know, you'll know. ;)

    3) And lastly, I am going to need a contact person. Someone in the group who will take full responsibility of Yoda and ensure that he is properly shipped off (and will also send the shipping number to either myself or Master--Kenobi, so we can keep track of him.)

    IF I DO NOT HAVE A CONTACT PERSON BY THE TIME THE TOUR BEGINS, I AM SORRY TO SAY WE SHALL HAVE TO REMOVE YOU FROM THE TOUR. :(

    What I need from the contact person:
    Name, home adress, email, and phone number. No, I'm not going to sell it online. :p Only two people will have a list of contacts: myself and Master--Kenobi. We need your adresses for shipping, email address to say "Hey, he's on his way, hey he's stuck in a blizzard, etc..", and the phone number will be a "just in case."

    Please have your appointed contact person PM me with this information.

    Thank you all and we're very eager to begin the tour!! :D

    Assuming it gets here in early August, I will be out of town for two weeks. (out of country actually)

    I was thinking these sights:

    Downtown skyscrapers. (J-R, D-H)
    Hollywood Walk of Fame and Hollywood sign (maybe S-R??)
    Dodger Stadium (I work close by, if I am in town)
    Perhaps Santa Monica Pier

    OR Could be a fun day if we had a group all go to those sights, and have a beer at each location. Ooops, did I say that.

    Yoda will be back in CA this winter. He's off to Europe, Asia, and Australia first. :)

    Yoda road trip around town sounds fun. I think we should include Grauman's Chinese Theater as one of the stops, take a pic with the SW footprints. Walk of Fame would be cool, but George Lucas doesn't have a star.

    For those of you who will be at Comic Con, Yoda has a message...

    "See you there, I will!" :)

    sorry guys, Yoda WILL get his photo taken infront of the Blue Zebra or the Spearmint Rhino. Not open to discussion. ;) Well, maybe...

    Wow! I wanna be Yoda! I can't wait for him to get to us. We'll find some cool places to take him.

    Yoda is in England!!

    I am leaving for New Zealand tomorrow, so please direct ALL questions to Master--Kenobi until I get back.

    Also, on the issue of The logbook:

    A binder is being sent around with Yoda to help record his journeys. Each group will be allowed ONE PAGE to fill up/decorate to your hearts' desires. We ask that only one picture be put on it, as the rest can be uploaded to the website (which is going through SERIOUS technical difficulties at the moment and may not be up as soon as we'd like).

    A sample page can be seen HERE.

    You will have a place to put a picture, a small tag to indicate the date and other information, a small pocket to hold things, and a space at the bottom to describe his adventure.

    We ask that each group PLEASE only uses one page, as we only have enough for one page per group. Also, please do not include any plants or food on the page, since we don't want customs confiscating the book and breathing down our neck about it. :p

    Thanks again!

    So, in the past 6 months, Yoda has:

    * Been lost in London for 3 months.
    * Partied like a Brit in Midlands, England
    * Enjoyed the countryside of Wales
    * Had over 10 new fanforces added to his tour (mostly in Europe)
    * Spent the holidays in a French Post Office
    * Got "Returned to Sender" back to Wales

    So that takes us up to now. :p We're preparing to send Yoda to France for the 2nd time. Hopefully, he'll stay there this time. :p

    The website is almost finished. However, our webmisstress' computer crashed, so it will take a little bit before we can finish it. There are several text mistakes on the website (for instance, she listed Canada as being part of the USA [face_laugh] ), but other than that, it is nearly there! I will let you know when it is finished. :D


    Thank you for your patience! :D


    (updated mostly to save this from the auto-lock). :p

    Update: Yoda's been held hostage by the French Postal System. They accused him of being someone named the Scarlet Pimpernel and would not release him.


    In all seriousness, we've been having shipping problems. We've finally decided to skip France and continue on to Germany in hopes of getting this tour moving once more.

    Thanks for your patience!
