Then on to the main event..........

An early start for the real troopers. 8.30 on a Sunday morning?! You have got to be either crazy or keen. I'm sure the Troops that attended were both!

Lined up at the entrance, a spectator would be able to see three types of kids (and some adults) coming in the main doors. 
1. Sheer terror as these big Star wars statues coming to life and asking to see there I.D.s or at least nervous HI-5's
2 Shock and disbelief with gaping jaws and bugging eyes.
3. Utter excitement as their favorite charterers from Star wars waiting to greet them and grab a photo that their school friends wouldn't believe.

The rest of the troop was spent mingling with the Con attendees grabbing numerous selfies, posing like buffoons, photobombing and recruiting like there was no tomorrow.

To those who missed out. They missed one amazing event.
