Was hoping for Mark Hamill, since he did CJ and CE -- but I guess he's not coming. So no autographs for me.

Do you know for sure he's not coming? Never say never!

I think I heard Ben say on the Official Pix forums that Hamill is 95% sure he's coming. Those are pretty good odds, unless something has changed.

When I waited for Mark Hamill at Celebration Europe, I was only in the queue for an hour and a half!


Had a timed ticket given and told to come back later, so hopefully that's how it will work at CV!

He will want to promote his Black Pearl film, I would be surprised if he passed on all the free promotion he would get at this con.

I smell a Black Pearl panel or something..Probably will be set up like a Q and A about Hamill's career that would work into a Black Pearl promo

Maybe but then again there was nothing for Indy 4 at C4.

Well, Crystal Skull hadn't even begun filming at the time of CIV, but there were some general Indy panels nonetheless.

I doubt C5 would allow promoting anything not linked to LFL.

If anything Hamill may be at SDCC to promote his projects like he has in the past.

I agree, he might have some comics at his table he will sign or something but there's not gunna be an entire panel devoted to it. That's IF he comes. 95% is not 100%.

Yeah I don't understand the urgency to meet Mark- I've met him three times already. At Comic-con in 2004 he signed a copy of his DVD "Comic-Book the Movie" for me for free- all I had to do was buy the DVD. Waited like 10 minutes and ended up chatting him up for a few minutes since there was no one behind me.

He's been at several conventions in 2008 and 2009 so it's no like his appearances are rare unlike some guys named Ford.

Wish I had your luck. I've never met him.


I'm sure his line will be BIG and he'll charge a good amount at CV.

Like Ben has said before. Some guests may be very common for us, but for others, it'll be their first time meeting the guest.

Yeah there some really big cons on the west coast each year. Here in Florida we get star wars weekends, but not really alot of big names come for it.

Lucky for us we can avoid those lines since we already have him. Unless his price is super-reasonable and the line is less than 30 minutes (unlikely for both scenarios) I will be passing since I got him last year at Wondercon. Its probably not possible for most people, but its best if you can get him at a non-SW con. If I hadn't met him last year, I'd be in that line at CV too. If he does indeed show up then I will give him props for that since he seemed to avoid the SW crowd altogether at C4.

Met Mark Hamill at SDCC in 09' and there were four (4) people abreast and almost the length of the convention center to get his autograph at $100.00 a pop for both Friday and Saturday!
Throughout the day, Mark was in great spirits, taken every photo request with fans, shared stories and didn't appear to complain about the long hours in signing.
I wish that he would make an appearance at CV!

Mark's autograph was £85 at Celebration Europe, but that was the only autograph I went for, so got it!

85 quid's pretty steep! That translates to about $125...wow...

The floorplans are up on starwarscelebration.com as well as where most of the booths will be. You can print it out.

Cool!!! The exhibit hall layout is what I look forward to the most every Celebration. It's what starts to get my imagination going about what the Celebration will be like.

The UK is really expensive, especially London!
So if Mark attends and his autograph is $125 it would be worth the same!


The hope is that it would be lower than that, which I would expect as he doesn't have to travel as far!

That's available here, FYI.
and a list to match is here:

http://swcv10.mapyourshow.com/3_0/search.cfm?let=@

They've also updated the Guests page to be more streamlined-looks nice.
Thanks guys. Finally some news that we care about!

Sadly, it can't be totally perfect of course. The numbers are practically unreadable online unless you zoom pretty far in but then you can't see the rest of the floor layout. I haven't tried to print it out so maybe its better in paper format but the website they are using sucks. Not to mention they have nothing filled in for the 3rd and 4th floors so that doesn't help us.

One thing I did notice is that the Celebration Store is inside the main Exhibit area. Does this mean it won't be a 24 hour store? Please say it aint so!

Hey, I just got an email today that said that read "thanks for volunteering to help at C5, but no thanks". Basically, they have over 2000 applications for people to volunteer, but not that many jobs. So they didn't need my help.

Don't know how many volunteer jobs they have, but not enough apparently! I just got fired from a volunteer job. Guess I need to take a hint!

Actually, it concerns me that LFL decided to pull in GL because they couldn't confirm any other household name on-screen talent. That seemed to be the case at C3.

Such as.... Harrison Ford? Samuel L. Jackson? Ewan?

Chances are pretty slim that an actor with a currently successful career will make an appearance at a Celebration. I don't feel Lucasfilm is trying to make up for anything at all. It'll just be an honor to have him there.

Yep.
And while some actors are more elusive such as Harrison Ford, others such as Samuel L. Jackson have attended SDCC on multiple occassions. Even Natalie Portman has been to SDCC. The SW Celebrations can't even get Mark Hamill in his home state.

I received the same email.
WTF?? I guess all my time will now be devoted to the collecting panels and a few other projects in the works.

Hey just throwing this out there in advance....if the Fan Club Breakfast can only be purchased via paypal, can someone please help me with 2 tickets. I'll reimburse you immediately (plus a little for your help). I'm keeping my mornings open, so any breakfast will be fine
