It really depends on who the special guest is and what they have for a signing schedule. Just like at the SW Celebrations or SDCC you'll have guests you could pretty much just walk right up to, or others that have a lengthy line.
I don't personally collect autographs so I can't tell you about the process first-hand, but I think that you basically purchase an autograph ticket which can be redeemed at any point that a celebrity is scheduled to sign.
In part it may also depend on if the celebrity has made other appearances in Denver before.
I saw that Tim Rose was going to be there, that would be something to have. I don't really collect autographs either, but I wouldn't mind having an Ackbar figure autographed. Much like my Kirby Puckett autographed cards. Just kind of a neat thing to have.
Anytime there is 501st I stop by and say hi. I love their work with the community and wish I could get into it, I just don't have the funding to start costuming right now. Plus I am a bit on the heavy side and a fat stormie is not what people what to see. But I will deffinatly make the effor to see the costumed famed 501st... the 501st are sort of my hero's in a way!!! See you there!
Don't know what the RMFF is, but it looks like I have a busy day that saturday the 17th of April. But it will be good fun. I talked one of my friends into going with me, he likes "nerd" fests like this. Like I said before, this is my first one and I am pretty excited. Still undecided about the purchasing of autographs though, I always was under the impression that they should be free. But that goes back to my baseball card collecting days. I understand why they do it, and I will still buy a ticket for Tim Rose so it is still going to happen. I just hope I can get him to sign my Ackbar figure "It's a TRAP!" That will make my day.
havent decided which star wars shirt I will be wearing, but I will post later once I have decided. Maybe my force unleashed as it is my favorite game.
Still gotta get my tickets. Gotta wait till pay day then I can get them, and get my camaro thats up in denver. All in a great saturday. I just wish they would post times for the autograph signings. I really want to plan my day around that so I can get the autograph, and have time for everything else.
What time do the doors open on Saturday. I was all over that website and found no times for ANYTHING. Honestly, a very frustrating website to navigate. But if anyone could help, I would appreciate it. That way I can plan my day around getting there early enough to get the autograph I was watching, going to RMFF display, the 501st and then whatever my friends want to do. Thanks in advance.
Your Awesome!! And you know the story of Flat Stanley... Seriously, this is the first I have heard of it when I got the letter in the mail... ha ha. Thanks for being so cool with everthing and all the info! Mad props to the 501st.
I'll post my pics later tonight, I had a blast at the convention and Tim Rose is one of the nicest guys. The 501st and the RMFF are just great people and I love the commuity involvment that they do. Top Notch.
Got Flat Stanley's picture taken ALL over the convention, on Ecto 1 and the other zombie killer car... My nephew will have a great project. And the ENTIRE autograph line signed Flat Stanley even though I didn't have but 1 autograph ticket just for Tim Rose. It was pretty cool.
