    Good day to you all! My name is Rachel and I am from the San Diego and Inland Empire fanforces of California, USA.

    I am helping Master--Kenobi of Santa Cruz, California, plan a trip for her small fried Interactive Yoda to go around the world. As of right now, our little friend will be going all over the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and possibly to Japan and Mexico. We would like to make this a truly world-wide tour.

    We wish to know if Singapore would be interested in having Yoda come and visit. :)

    The original planning thread is located here. Please reply there before the end of next week if you are interested!

    What the tour consists of:

    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, and a website is being created.

    Thank you all for your time!

    Hey! Of course interested. I work near a few "touristy" place already. I'm game! Not sure about the rest of the guys, but I'm pretty sure there will be a few who would be interested too.

    So I hope I can speak on everyone's behalf in saying, We're interested!

    So, more details please. What do we need to do exactly? Where do we sign up for this? Etc.

    Cheers

    Basically, Yoda will be handed off or shipped from fanforce to fanforce. For example, Master--Kenobi will be mailing Yoda to me, my fanforce will go take his picture everywhere, then I am handing him off to a member of the United Kingdom fanforce (who will be visiting). He'll be taken back to England, have his picture taken everywhere (hopefully with Ewan McGregor: that's the main point of the trip! :p), then the UK fanforce will mail him on to France.

    So, Yoda gets shipped to you, you have 2 weeks to take him around the town, take pictures at "tourist spots" or other locations, then ship him off to the next fanforce. We will be sending a logbook along with him to recap the journey. :)

    This is an amazing idea!

    Any fixed schedule regarding the dates for the specific cities yet?

    :)

    Not yet. Yoda will be in England by the end of July, that's all we really have set so far. We will have a route planned out by next weekend. :)

    I'm agreeable to this. :p

    And to make his trip more special, may I recommand that Yoda be sent to one of our member during the period of time we are host the SW Exhibition (Nov 19th-April 3rd 2006)? I can help him visit the place and take pictures with those we are publically allowed to take photos with. 8-}

    Do keep us informed. ;)

    I'll see what I can do, though it looks like Yoda may be passing through your part of the world around September or so. :(

    Will definitely keep you guys informed. :)

    What I need from you now is a contact person. Someone who will take full responsibility for Yoda and ensure that he gets shipped off to the next fanforce in time.

    What I need:
    Name
    Home Address
    Email address.

    The address will be for shipping purposes and the email will be for warnings, changes in plan, etc. Never fear: only two people will be holding this list of names: myself, and Master--Kenobi. :)

    If one of you could PM me this information before next Friday, that would be great.

    Xie xie! :D

    I don't mind being the back up, since me and Crovus live near the tourist area, AKA, town.

    I feel Darth_Eagle should handle this, unless she doesn't want it.

    Sounds like a fun idea.

    I wonder if we should bring Yoda to Sungei Buloh. :D

    Plan now is, Crovus take Yoda to the spots where most tourists go, I bring him to Singapore's Shopping Paradise, Orchard Rd and to the temples, churches and mosques, as well as the MRT with his face carved on the wall as a decoration :eek: by a proffesional artist.

    Just fyi, Volcanoland at Sentosa looks like it's still there. It's on the island guide map and the structure is still standing but I didn't go in so I don't know what the inside looks like now. And there are big banners outside proclaiming some dinosaur museum inside.

    Don't forget Mustafa Centre. :p

    even when i go there alone, its a bitch as everyone blocks almost every available path or aisle. its irritating. esp when ur holding a basket. argh.

    Yes! MUST bring Master Yoda to Mustafa.....Mustafa Centre! [face_laugh]

    Well, at least let him have a little photos outside on a weekday.

    Ya, I think the receiving part will let Crovus do it as I may be booked fully with the SW Exhibition should I get that early job. :D

    As for visits to Temples, Churches, Mosques; I think better restrict it to famous landmarks outside like Sri Mariamma(sp?), St Andrew, Sultan Mosque etc etc, 1 per religion and Tourist-Friendly as some Place may have restriction on photography. ;) And I'll prefer someone more mature and have good understanding of other religion protocols to do the Places of Worship Visits.

    Don't forget the Jewish synagogue (I think it's on Waterloo Street) and maybe Kwan Yin Miao that's in the Albert Street pedestrian mall area, or another Buddhist Temple.

    I think it's appropriate to bring Yoda to all these places of worship, since people have seen religious-related themes running through the Star Wars movies... and Yoda just seems to come across as a rather spiritual and philosophical kind of character.

    Also, perhaps a pic of Yoda at the Istana??
    Or Yoda at the new Parliament House??
    After all, that's where all the politics takes place.
    Just be careful when you take pics there, don't get yourself into trouble with the guards and stuff... :p
