Check out the main page for the convention. There are some nice quotes from various actors and artists that attended this years event.

Def. and I already have my recruit too! I am sure next years will be just as much of a blast, it'll be like a Star Wars and "family" reunion all in one. You know.. people have asked me how the weekend was and did I have a good time and the first thing I think to say is "I was there and I still dont believe it, thats how good a time I had."

I just realized... this will be the tenth anniversary of Phantom Menace. Hopefully it will be a TPM-centric con.

That would be just fine with me!


Maybe Ben could get Ahmed to come out and sign for it.

I don't know if I am in the minority by saying this, but I would love to have Ahmed's autograph added to my collection.

Make it happen, Ben!

Yes, that was awesome of Wattographs to get him to sign. I've got a lovely 11x14 now because of it.

I've never bought an autograph (and never will) from an actor/actress that I did not physically meet in person and see them sign my pic with my own eyes.

Regardless of how "authentic" a site might be, the thrill of actually meeting the person who is signing the autograph is what's worth it to me - a lot more than placing an order online and having a signed pic sent to me.

Re: Star Wars Fan Days III - Oct. 24th-25th

Yup, I used to feel the same way, but I realized that I'll never be able to meet some of these people that I would really like for my collection, so I started buying from trusted people.

Well, once he can't find work anymore, he just might.

I am going to wait until the guests are announced and then decide. This year I was on pins and needles the entire time about the guest list because I had booked my flight so far in advance. If it's a great list I'll be there again.

Not sure really. Got to wait and see how personal finances and economy are at that time.

I really would love to go if I can.

Re: Star Wars Fan Days III - Oct. 24th-25th

I'd really like everyone who did attend to please tell a friend about the show. I'd love to make this our family reunion for next year! As time passes and hopefully more decide to make the trip I think we will have to create a scheduled meet and greet of sorts at the show one day in a dedicated room perhaps.

I can't wait to see Eric running around with a camera on his head ;-)

But hopefully we'll be able to get the entire podcast team there for a panel and live show. I think that'd be great!

Oh man sooo many ideas and its sooo long away! LOL!

I totally agree! Let's keep the momentum going throughout the year and get as many people as possible to attend. I bet we can double the size of the convention next year.

That would be awesome. The more folks in attendance, the easier it is for Ben and Mark to try to land more and better guests.

Next time I am going to take Monday off from work so that I am not running around like a mad man and can actually enjoy it a bit more.

I missed 1 because family was in town visiting, then I missed 2 because I blew out a tire which put my truck in the shop the day I was supposed to leave. There is no way I'm missing 3! I just hope Amy Allen comes again.

I'll be there! I am totally cracking up that the quotes on the page are from Steve Sansweet, Dave Prowse, Tom Hodges, and then um, Spence Brinkerhoff. Who is that guy? Where did he come from? ;P

This is for Oct 24 and 25th of 2009, correct? I manage a warehouse about 50 miles away from Plano, TX so I might just be able to make this one
but I don't know just yet. Its a long time from now.
