Celebration should be great! Going with Derek will be an amazing trip. I honestly dont care who I see there, I think it will be great to just be apart of the magic that is star wars. Hope prices on most things will be reasonable but i can also expect that thigs could be quite pricey. T shirt is a deff must and maybe a few autograph sessions. " These are the celebs you are looking for."

hey jim,
I know derek and i are both really interested in the t shirts as we have talked about having them made before. I think it would be great for the members in the group to get them and even wear them for the general public at the convention. I might even buy 2!

That being the case I will work on the graphics - enlarging the header logo we use here so that it is sharp enough on a shirt front.

I am imagining white text on navy shirt. I will look into options and costings. Unless it is easier to complete the design work here, email it as a JPEG Stateside and you guys print in the US?

We really need to make a push on promoting the group in the coming weeks and months. I feel that the site has a lot of potential to offer and we all love chatting here!

derk and i talked and we could also help pay for the shirts as well. I think the promotion of the goup would be awesome. Have we thought about a banner or some type of text or link from a site like rebel scum or brians toys? other sites u could look at would be somthing like bigbadtoystore.com i believe in the group and site and have seen how far it has come since its wee days as a small group that derek could not stop talking about.
May the force be with all of us

Contacted the webmaster on that Aussie site Rebado was telling me about. I have not heard from him as of yet. It was about a week ago, so I would think I should have heard back by now. No idea how busy he is or anything. I'll keep you guys posted.

Maybe it is time to try again with Hasbro about the Q&A's.

I have approached Rebel Scum in Europe with no response and Geoffrey, who is organising an event in Texas - again with no response.

I am all up for promoting the site - and thank members that have done so already. If members are interested in promotin the site I have banner gifs and logos that you can forward to sites once contact is made.

I will be contacting a UK Sci-Fi magazine regarding the site next week.

Brian's Toys are in contact with Empress via the BCA and their prize donation.

I am planning on buying my tix as soon as my tax refund comes in. My Brother Jtaylor (who is also a member, albeit a scarce one) is supposed to come too.

From what I hear, Xaos plans on really trying to make at least a couple days ans Sypho made mention of going as well.

Really looking forward to this, and would love to figure out how and where to meet my fellow Watto's members!

CV is still up in the air for me. I don't know if I can get enough days off of work. I still have to ask.

I just saw that Carrie Fisher will be there signing autographs.

I was thinking about the Lucas Archives and I'm pretty sure they will have the Han in carbonite there since it's Empire's 30th. What else was in Empire that would be awesome to see? The Boba Fett suit will most likely be there. There's the Yoda puppet but I've seen that twice now. I've actually seen a lot of the Empire props at "Where Science Meets Imagination". I'm thinking if they would have ALL of the bounty hunter costumes lined up together that would make the whole trip worth while for me! I'd love to see the giant Dewback and Jabba that have been around at other celebrations. They weren't at C3 when I went.

Now if they could get a life size AT-ST or Tauntaun, that would be sweet! They did have an AT-ST in Jedi though when Chewie popped out of the top. Maybe someone will at least build a decent sized AT-AT or something.

Hi Xaos

I saw the Fett costume on exhibition here in London along with the carbonite block. I agree it would be good to see all the bounty hunters there - has IG-88 ever been displayed?

At Celebration Europe there was the large Jabba on display and a large AT-AT and snowspeeder, both fan built. They also had a life-size snow trooper and fan built X-wing. I will post photos here to show.

WOW James, those are great! I hope someone brings that AT-AT to CV. I would really love to see a large scale AT-ST also.

I just got the owner to approve my vacation time today. He signed the paper so I am on my way to Celebration! I plan to meet up with Derek and anyone from Watto's who goes. My wife and I have decided to buy 4 day passes so I will be there for the whole show, Derek. I may have to come and go because of the kids though. You know, since we have a few people going, we could take turns holding each others places in line and maybe get to see a few shows and panels. At CIII I thought I would just be there for a day so I didn't want to wait in a 3 or 4 hour line and waste all my time. After we get a schedule, which I hope they figure out soon (maybe it's out, I haven't checked lately) , we should get together and make a plan.

If anyone wants items or autographs, I'll do my best to help get them. I hope the CV store is run a lot better this time since a different company is running it. I really don't want to wait in line just to buy exclusives. My wife waited for 4 hours last time. I told her we'll just buy the junk on ebay! I'd rather pay a little more than waste my time at the show if I have to.

Excellent new Xaos! I am so jealous that I can't go - but more so that I am unable to meet up with all of you that side of the Atlantic. I would be interested in items if possible from the show if the offer is open.

Glad you like the photos

Cool

Has Liam Neeson ever been to ANY of the conventions?

I have seen one or two autographed items on eBay but though that he never did that sort of thing.

I don't think the big names really go to the shows. I mean, the ones who are actually acting still. They are probably way too busy. Mark Hamill is about the biggest name you'll get at those things from what I've seen. I heard Carrie Fisher isn't going to be circulating much after this. I think the only way to get the Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson type autos is ebay or official pix. I'm really going to go for Dave Prowse this time if he is there. He had surgery recently so he may not be there. I wanted his auto at CIII but didn't have enough money because I got Peter Mayhew and Jeremy Bulloch's already.

Just saw some of the actors who are confirmed for CV. Jake Lloyd will be there. I haven't seen him yet.

Here is a link to the CV facebook notes page where they post all of the info about the show. There is also some collectors panel info. They are finally starting to get things rolling a little bit. There are only about 10 weeks left! Just bought our airline tickets tonight.


https://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/notes.php?id=193981481786&style=2

You'll have to copy and paste it.

Here is the official pix line up so far.

I need to book my flight!! Also gotta figure out the hotel. I don't plan on getting a rental, so will need to depend on shuttle busses or cabs. I'd like to get a place real close, maybe even walking distance.

A lot of times hotels are attached right to the convention center. You might want to get that quick if possible. The nearest hotels might sell out of rooms. Here is a link to the CV official hotel page. They may have discounts.

Hey Derek, what day are you planning to get there?

We will be there earlier the week before and be leaving the Monday after the show. We're visiting relatives in Jacksonville the first part of the week.

Here are the cheapest ones first if the search thing stays the way I had it. Looks like $65 a night is the cheapest. There are a bunch of hotels everywhere close by and they all have shuttles. I mean, it IS the land of Disney.

We plan on getting there Weds, the day before the show. that should give us time to get settled in the room and such. I will check hotwire and priceline, I'm sure I will find something soon.

Hey if you do hotwire, put in that you want a 4 star hotel. We've been getting really expensive hotel rooms for cheap! $250 room for $80 in Chicago. All of the hotels pretty much have shuttles it looks like so it probably won't matter which hotel you end up with if hotwire sets you up. You never know which one they give you until after the transaction, that's what sucks. But at c2e2 they gave the same hotel that was at the con center.

I just saw that official pix has added Anthony Daniels to the line up for $50.

Here is a link to the collecting panels that will be going on at CV. There are quite a few.

I just saw that myself! I talked my wife into going to see Star wars in concert as well! There will be a show in July about 2 hrs from my house. Sucks that I have to watch some of those damn Twilight movies, but I guess it's a small price to pay in the long run.

I don't quite understand the collector panels..... according to the schedule they run for like 5 or 6 hrs? Or do they just repeat an hr long show or something? I would like to go to a couple, especially the vintage one, but again don't know if I really want to spend half a day in one panel. Oh well, I guess thats why the show runs for 4 days! LOL I really need to get my flight!

I looked into going to star wars in concert here as well, but it was about to be sold out. I decided not to do it since I'm planning this florida trip. I think they plan to keep it going for a while so maybe next time. I saw they had the plo koon and kit fisto costumes on the road with them. That's really cool. Make sure you take your camera!

Here are a few things happening at CV. Laser tag with Stormtroopers sounds fun.

Here's your chance Derek, you can send in questions for them to ask George on stage. Make it good and maybe Jon will ask him.

I just noticed Tem Morrison has been invited too.

I was hoping Dave Prowse would be there but he had surgery recently so probably not.
