We'll have to start formulating some plans on get togethers down there pretty soon here.  Granted, we've got everyone's phone numbers, so I'm sure it won't be too hard to schedule something on the fly.  Who all is staying overnight down there, besides me, Jared, Jamie, and Jason (and Roger)?

I'm sure we'll be hanging out each night somewhere though, so stay tuned for more detailed plans to come...  Anyone recall how late Preview Night usually runs?

Preview night is open until 9.

I'll be staying overnight on Wednesday night but have to leave Thursday evening. I don't know if Robb might still have my number but give me a ring if we don't get something planned before Wednesday.

If anyone grabs the Shock Trooper set and doesn't need the Bust-Up, give me a shout.  I don't collect the busts but would love to get the Bust-Up to keep my collection complete.

Oh yeah, since I'm kissing butt, I'd love the Vader Bust-Up as well.

I know at least one former So Cal guy that's going too Ray. I fly in Tuesday night and will be there the whole time.

There might be some extra room on our hotel room floor if anyone is looking for a spot. It would really help knock the cost of the room down a bit.

When is the JD get together going to get planned?

So since Roger and I are out for Preview Night, and Jared and I are out for Thursday night, that makes our Official Hooters party finally set in stone for Friday night!  Not sure if we'll be heading straight over there after the Star Wars Spectacular gets out, or if we'll be trekking back to the hotel to dump our crap first.  But either way, I think we can finally confirm that get-together at least.  So hopefully we'll see everyone there!  Holler if anyone needs some cell phone #s to keep in touch for that...

Anyone know if StarWarsShop.com is gonna be there?  I'm guessing they will be, in some capacity...  I'd love to upgrade my thrashed Lucas Family figure set to a nice MIMB one if they have some on hand...

And anyone who can grab me any extras of the following freebies, I'd be MUCH obliged (and could pick them up from you on Friday and give you a big hug in return):

** Wizards of the Coast  promo mini figures (three different ones, as many as possible of each)
** Free "Stikfas" cuboyd figure at the Saizon booth (for a package I'm sending to Hemish next week)

Thank you!!  See everyone Friday morning at the Q & A...  ;)

This is a 1 in a million shot, I know, but if ANYONE manages to grab an extra Shocktrooper  Bust, please keep me in mind...

Thanks!

That's the first picture of the Gonk droid I've seen online, I'm so glad you guys snapped that.

Man....from everything I've seen, this is the best year for Star Wars figures at Comic Con in ....well....as long as I can remember. 

The Gentle Giant and Sideshow booths are just amazing and Hasbro seems to have some really cool stuff coming out alongside those repacks.

I'm jealous of all of you guys in attendance and will be eagerly awaiting the JD coverage.

I was just thinking Hasbro was kind of sucking big fat eggs at the moment...   :-\  A whole lotta repacks, some asinine at best, really not much else.  Their vehicles actually are more interesting than their figures at the moment, and the vehicles are all repaints.  Yikes.

This may be a desperate fanboy in me, but did anyone at comic con get a better look at what this said?



 The first part (I'm hoping) looks like it says "Mandalorian". Could we be getting an EU mando in the near future? Probably not.

 Actually, upon further observation, it looks more like "Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes" Is this a multipack?
