Whoa, am I the only one that went to both?

Well no need to recap C2, I basically share the same highlights as everyone else! Had a fantastic time! Although, I did lose my credit card, and spent a good part of the day tracking it down (one of the WOTC store workers had accidentally held on to it, so much to my relief, it never got into the wrong hands). I got to meet Anthony Daniels for a second time, and amazingly, he recognized me after I told him where we met the first time.

C1 was fun as well, but if you think C2 was disorganized, or had long lines, then you would not have been very happy. I still absolutely loved it and would go again if I had the chance to redo it, but parts of it weren't exactly pleasant. First of all, it was held in an old military hanger, the main facility was about the size of the two main exhibition halls at C2 (the dealer/autograph/book giveaway/computer/card game area), and was about twice as cramped. The other part, the dealer area, was held in a tent out in a dirt parking lot. Every day it rained, and it rained HARD. The first day I was there, I waited 3 hours outside in a complete downpour. I managed to get under a tent (another queing area) and that was where I met Anthony Daniels for the first time. He came up to me, and shook my hand, and said "Youve got really warm hands, let me warm mine (god that sounds bad)". Well he stood there and continued to shake my hand, and carried on about a 10 minute discussion! :) It was cool, and he is most definately a stand up guy!

The dealer area was a disaster, and I felt very sorry for them, as the entire tent had flooded, and many people had stuff on the ground (including vintage stuff). It was a huge mess.

We ended up waiting six hours in the line for the Fan Club store, to get all of the "exclusives" that would later show up online at half the price ;) But no, Im not mad about that or anything :)

Overall, it was like Woodstock (well, more Woodstock 94), meets Star Wars. I had a fantastic time though!

I will definately go to C3. Everyone knows Im very adamant in my opinion that it will be in Indy (I worked at the Convention Center and Visitors Association for a short period, and it has been going through there for quite some time that C3 will come back to Indy), but wherever it is, Ill go!

I skipped my college graduation for C2, and instead of going to a graduation, my parents also decided to come! It was a fantastic time, I wouldnt miss another for anything

So, has anyone reached "Yoda" status, or has GNT not arrived yet  ;D

Thanks for the welcome! Looks like I'll have fun here!

If you're ever at Rebelscum or Galactic Hunter, you're probably sick of seeing it! :)

I think I've posted this everywhere I go ;) I got bored a couple of days ago and tossed together a custom Kermit Skywalker from the Muppet Star Wars spoofs. It's my first custom, and I plan on trying to make a better one.

Gotta go with Binks and say get these if you can! They are fun, the look cool, don't take up much room, and they come in chocolate eggs! :)

I've also managed to collect them all so far, and am quite excited about these! Although, I would have preferred a more "true" bust and not had the arms...

Hey everyone! If you go to Rebelscum or Galactic Hunter, hopefully you know who I am  ;D Got an invitation to join forces (no pun intended) over here and thought I'd come on over and check it out!
