For C3 he was there on the Saturday. Which means for those of us planning to get there early and going to Last Tour of Endor that night, it will be a VERY long day.

It'll also be a late night for me Friday at the 501st party. I anticipate that on Saturday afternoon I'll be standing in the main atrium wearing my armor, but you'll be hearing the sound of snoring come from inside my helmet.

Two late nights in a row, 501st Bash and Disney! Certainly not used to it, but I'm on holiday so should be ok!

Most fans are going to have late nights!
Something I didn't have at Celebration Europe, I just went home after each day!

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.
While you and Mark may be the bestest of friends, a lot of us don't get to go to a lot of these events and haven't met him....me included. It would make my day if I hear that he's going!

Anyone else get that stupid email telling us what they've already announced at CV? When I looked at the subject line in my email I thought they would be announcing new stuff but alas its just basically a "news in review" email.

C'mon announce some artists and art, what some of the collecting panels are going to be, fan events or something! We are almost at the 2 month mark and we barely have any news other than guests!

Edit: I do see that they did announce some panels today but why not include that in the email? Thankfully Scummers are on top of everything, which is why I check these boards, because Reed sure isn't.

Hamill was said to come to C4, OP even had photos printed up for autos and he pulled out. You never know until you get there.

Hey, stupid question but aren't opening ceremonies held on the evening of the first day of the show?

If the past Celebrations are any indication, then yes, Opening ceremonies are held on the first public day of the show.

On the Official Pix website they have a tab on the side for the Fanclub breakfast that says coming soon. Did they have anything to do with it last time? I can't remember if we had to go to the OP website to go to ebay to buy the tickets.

As I recall (although I didn't attend), OfficialPix did the breakfast at CIV. For the record, they also did it at Fan Days III last October.

Re: Celebration V - 08/12-08/15, 2010 in Orlando #

I'm trying to order my Celebration tickets (2) through the CV website, and I want to add the trace-able UPS shipping for $9.95. It says that anyone can choose to upgrade to UPS shipping for $9.95. However, I -CANNOT- find any option, anywhere, that will allow me to select UPS shipping anywhere from the start of the check-out process to Paypal's screens and beyond.

How can I upgrade to the secure UPS shipping? I CANNOT figure it out!

I might be wrong on that, but if I remember correctly UPS shipping
for the badges was only available for the (sold-out) VIP tickets.
(So basically you bring your receipt and pick up the badge on site)

No, it was available for regular tickets periodically. When I ordered mine, it wasn't available but when the VIP tickets became available it was. Maybe wait until tomorrow and click on the live chat image to ask.

Re: Celebration V - 08/12-08/15, 2010 in Orlando #

I don't think so. According to the CV site:

Ticket Mailing

"All fans who order their tickets by July 11 at 11:59 PM EST will have their tickets mailed to them by USPS beginning mid-July 2010. There's no additional cost for postage, and once you get your ticket, just bring it with you and walk right into Celebration. If you'd like to upgrade your tickets to traceable UPS delivery, you can for $9.95. If you order five or more tickets, please note that UPS shipping will be automatically added to your order. Tickets ordered after July 11th will not be mailed. Instead, if you order after July 11th, simply bring your confirmation email with you to Star Wars Celebration and we'll provide you with your physical ticket at one of our registration desks in the main lobby. No international or interstellar orders will be mailed. All international and interstellar orders will be held for pick up on-site. There are no refunds or exchanges."


The only problem is, there doesn't seem to be anywhere on the CV site to request UPS shipping. Or if there is, I can't find it.

I see, I was wrong on that. Sorry.

I work at UPS, and a bunch of the mail gets delivered to the cities through us. I actually oversee mail going to Miami and Montreal.

Might be the information we should have gotten months ago- anyway I can't wait to see what they have in store.

They seem to be steering away from having Kevin and Olivia do Star Wars programming. Today's TOR coverage will be hosted by Adam Sessler, and the "Star Wars Strikes Back" show on June 17th will be hosted by Blair Herter and Blair Butler. It seems like the two Blairs are Star Wars savvy and understand how to respect the franchise, so perhaps they'll do CV coverage if G4 is there. Either way, I would guess that G4 heard our feedback and is shying away from using Kevin and Olivia to do Star Wars presentations.

Yeah, the SDCC special last year was not good. I thought they did a good job at CIV though, IMO.

I thought G4's coverage of CIV was decent, I DVR'd the live show and put it on DVD to be part of my CIV memories. Their coverage of Celebration Japan was pretty weak though. It ended up being a big commercial for the Clone Wars animated movie, with very little on the actual Celebration.

Saw something interesting on the CV tickets page.

The day passes for Thursday, Friday, and Sunday are $48 each, but a day pass for Saturday is $54. I think I've figured out when the Lucas-Stewart conversation will take place.

You're probably right; Saturday's bound to be the day with the highest attendance, anyway.

It's going to be a LONG day Saturday. Waking up super early for Lucas and the Tour of Endor doesn't end till 1AM!

I just hope that the 'event' will be earlier in the day. I had wanted to get to Hollywood Studios before the event started in hopes of getting a few rides out of the way.

I'm in the same boat. But there's no way I'm missing out on either of those events. As far as I'm concerned, sleep can wait when it's a Celebration we're talking about.

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Why charge more for tickets on the day of the con that a max of 2600 out of 30,000 attendees will get in to see Lucas? How can they charge more based on a talk that the VAST majority of ticket-buyers won't be able to get in to see, period?
