    Tour was awesome. Wasn't permitted to take any pictures. I respect that. Saw Gary Stern drive in.
    Got to see many Black Knights on the assembly line. Didn't / wouldn't hint of next title but I would keep that to myself even if they did. It's an honor to be allowed in there and I personally dont want to be on thier poop list. Got to play some pins in thier arcade including The Beatles.

    We did get to see the R2D2 topper. The tour was free and that was enough for me. At the Star Wars convention, Stern have 3 Star Wars pins set up for play.

    Did there appear to be any changes made to the Star Wars topper or same as initial photos?
