  • Limited “Droid Hunt” badges will be distributed to convention patrons.
  • Badge recipients should wear their badge prominently and roam inside the convention area. The badge is designed with C-3P0 and R2-D2.
  • Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers, Biker Scouts and Clone Troopers of the 501st (accompanied by handlers) will hunt down all badge recipients.
  • Once a trooper flags down a contestant, he will be asked to turn over the “Droid” badge. Contestant may engage the trooper in a dialogue similar to the scene/s in Mos Eisley in Ep.4. ex.”How long have you had those droids?” and “Let’s see your identification” … and so on.
  • In exchange for the Droid Badge, trooper will give you a raffle ticket for a prize. Fill up the ticket and drop it off at the registration table. Those who do not surrender their droid badge will not get a raffle ticket.

A raffle will be held onstage at the Main Auditorium. Prizes will be announced, and winners get free gift bags courtesy of Fun-O, Nissin Yakisoba, Geekerie, and NexCon Manila.
