Woohooooooo~~ excited!!! It is going to be let off~~
The concept originated from 501st member Benoît Lambert (TK-2054), and it turned into a top-secret Lucasfilm-sanctioned project the making of which took nearly two years. In 2005, FanWars' commander TK-9999 spoke of the project with Steve Sansweet and Lucasfilm gave the green light for a Darth Vader's helmet-shaped balloon a few weeks later.
The balloon props measure 26 meters (86 feet) high with the basket included, 21 meters (69 feet) wide and with a depth of 24 meters (78 feet). The estimated hot air volume 3.000 m³ (106,000 cubic feet) and estimated weight 320 kilos (705 lbs). The balloon can carry two passengers and a pilot. First revealed to the general public on the officialStar Wars website, the Darth Vader balloon was present at the fan convention Celebration Europe in July 2007.The darth vader captured by David is ... ...DARK vader ...
Hehehe~ thanks for this memorable one~ looks fake?? It's real seriously. Another WOW factor of the night!! I feel like I'm dreaming... The whole area was hot like hell especially when they started the flames. The nearer you get to the balloons the more burning sensation you got.
I WANT THIS!!!! =(
The divine 2nd Putrajaya Hot Air Balloons is definitely going to be one of the main chapter in my 2010.
