The J.A.W.A. Convention: Day 2

This is the day of the convention I think I might enjoy the most. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to win my award tomorrow but I’ll have to sit through the seminar first. Almost a whole day of jawa’s talking and patting each other on the back. They just need to pat me on the back and get done with it.

But today was the day when all the new jawa-made gadgets got rolled out for all to see. It was a regular what’s new in the field of transports and droids. Unfortunately the main convention room was still being cleaned up from last nights festivities so they had to show the stuff outside in the parking lot. Oh well.









The place was packed and everyone clamored to get a glimpse of the new crap.

When it came to droids, there was this nifty bird droid. It always stayed on its perch and it never pooped. It could also sing in 3000 different bird song.









But on closer inspection I saw that the bird itself was stuffed and nailed to the perch. The jawa hawking it said it had to be nailed or else it would take off…voom! I had my doubts.

One of the more interesting droids I saw was this TOK-32 Tauntaun belly scratching droid. Man, that tauntaun looks like he’s in haven.









Next were the new vehicles of tomorrow. Like this compact sandcrawler. Jeez, these things are getting smaller each year.










Or this dog-cycle-thingy that actually walks itself.










Some of the gadgets made even less sense. Like this cell phone for Rancors. I mean, come on? Who do Rancors have to call anyway? Room service? They get their food brought to em.










And this giant space nipple….um….I’m not even going to speculate what it’s for. (or why so many earth people hovered around it . ...Earthmen are kinda creepy anyway... )









But all in all it was a very interesting day. Hell, even the local officials handed out free goodies to the kids at the end.

Well, that was certainly nice of the clone overlords to give you all chocolate, 'cause choclate bars in the Tatooine heat are just wonderfully nice things.

As for the bird, pick it up and bang it on the counter to see if it's dead

snickers bars and liquid crack. How says the Republic can't win the hearts and minds of the Tatootine people.

Aw now you're saying us humans are all crazy for liking the giant nipples? Hey, I resemble that remark.

And those taun taun scratchers are kind of nice, except I got one and now I have to go get a taun taun now.

I love those conventions. I allways come back with two pounds of stuff to put in my office desk that I never use. But, hey it's all free! By the way, anyone need a pen?

Uh... where could one possibly expect to find a nipple warmer that size?

Vegeta said...

I'm not sure who's creepier, Earthmen or Jawas. Let me get back to you on that

Qui-Gon Jinn said...

A massive rubber nipple...
Did they have any rubber walrus protectors, man?

Master Yoda said...

Probably just a "concept" nipple, that is. Probably half that size, the final show room version will be.

Master John said...

Did you see Tiny lil jawa at the convention? I think he said something about leaving for a couple o' days to go there.

Jango Fett said...

Get the Mandalorian Rubber Nipple. It last long and feels great!
Uh, Dont ask how I know about this... :)

Professor Xavier said...

Man, I need a belly scratching droid.
