Celebration IV: Los Angeles / Re: C4 Collecting Track

That's too bad.  It sounded like it could have been cool.
What happened at the MR party?

Where to begin?   Matt Fox and I (I was his guest) wandered out of the convention center and heading for what looked like a gathering crowd.   The email from MR basically said there would be a double decker bus leaving at 7:15 for Jim Henson studios at 15 minute intervals, ending at 8:15.  Well... we're just waiting and waiting and nothing came.  We saw a red bus pull out with a bunch of people on it and eventually heard it had left with the celebreties and VIPs.  Then a small black shuttle with Phil Wise drove up and took the first 14 people and he confirmed we were in the right spot.    That was about 7:45ish and I had a few friends from DC get on it.   By the time the next bus showed up it was close to 8:45.  We got to the party in about 40 minutes and had some nice BBQ and chose not to pay $5 for raffle tickets or a key to open a chest to win an MR Falcon.   The gift bag was a total joke and only the members (not their guests) got one.   There was some pretty ok lightsaber combat routines, crappy white and red wine, diluted light beer, and sodas.   After our friends who DID try for the MR Falcon had their turn at the lock and failed, we headed out looking for a ride back.   Got in line up the block and waited.   And waited.  Finally a bus came and there was a surge from inside the studio so those of us in line didn't actually make it (me being now first in line).   Again.. no more buses... we're now past the 10:30 contract time for the buses and three of the black shuttles came but were ONLY going to the Omni.  By then the place had totally cleared out except for a few MR folks.   They spent some time on our behalf talking to on of the shuttle drivers (only one left there) and finally convinced him to drop us off back at the convention center.   He ended up dropping Matt and I off at the Holiday Inn so that was cool but by then it was like 12:30.   Complete waste of an evening IMHO.  Would have much rather gone to one of the Con hotels with some of the DCSWCC folks.   Talk about hindsight.....

How's that for my first thread hijack?


No worries, as I agree... I drove there myself... but I must say... the party... a joke... really... the bag a waster... for such a high class outfit... and such an "exclusive" party... it was such a waste that I got there like 7:15 and left by 8:15...

Best feature... the bartender closest to the food... a California Hottie indeed.

Thanks. Have the first three, so I had to get this one.

Any word on how much they will be?

So did anyone get the coins? Which did you get? ;D

I managed to hit a couple of the panels and got an Obi, R2, 3P0, Jawa, Tusken, and Vader coin.   I WISH I'd been able to get more, but between things I wanted to see, a double OPX shift on Saturday (Matt Wood was awesome!) and another shift on Sunday, and just things I just had to see- Robot Chicken, Clone Wars Behind the Scenes etc.., there was no way.
  I had a great time and the only major downer was the Master Replicas Party... what a nightmare that was

What a Cluster F that was.  Got one of the Sunday tickets when there were  still 74 left.  By the time I got through Paypal - My item was cancelled.  That totally sucked.  Oh well.

Anybody have any luck?

One of each of the six 2-packs from Target.  Cost + tax and shipping - essentially $66 and shipping.

Only interested in selling as a set at this time.

Thanks for the help on the Unleashed Shadowtrooper.  That was going to bug me not having one of those.

Any locals have any advice on hotels.  I can get a pretty good deal staying in Montebello of of the Pomona freeway, but I am not sure about driving around the 10 miles.  Maybe I should just suck it up and stay downtown.

Any thoughts?

Just completed a nice trade with Mike.  He shipped them promptly and nicely.  Thanks for the exchange. 

Would not hesitate to do it again in the future.

I just got the go ahead to go; Now I am wondering about where to stay.  Was hoping to stay near a mass transit line, as to not deal with driving.  Any locals with some suggestions?

I am getting close to watching a SW film with my son.  He will be 4 in July.  I am fairly certain i want to show it to him in the order I saw the films, although I can see how TPM would be a good place to start for him.  any thoughts or experiences with this?

Also, how long did you wait between introducing another film in the Saga.

My likely order is IV, V, VI, I, II, III.
