Poor Phil. He is such a nice guy.


OK. I have heard some news but I cannot confirm it yet. I have heard that at Wizard World Hasbro is going to be showing the entire 2003 Clone Wars line of toys (Vehicles and Figures) and a few new figures from the Saga Line. Also, I heard a preview of the Clone Wars Cartoon!!!

I know that Hasbro always has a nice display at Wizards World but they usually show what is already out there and what is to come in like the next month. But not this year if the rumor is true that the Clone Wars Line is going to have a major showing at Wizards World.

If they are going to show the Clone Wars line, I hope they show more of the figures that were not at ToyFair, ect. I really want to see how the Sith Witch and others are coming along.

Well, I plan to be there for one day at least. Hopefully Friday so I can get my Clone Bust.

Alrighty... I'm about to order these tickets for the show, and there's a spot where you can enter in a coupon code.  Does ANYONE here know what would be a good code to insert to save myself some money?

LMK... thanks!!!   ;D

No problem.  I really appreciate you looking into this for all of us (and especially myself).  If you end up going I think we all should get together there.  That would be very cool.

So who all is going to this?  I'll be going to primarily report on it for JD, but of course I'm also going to get the Silver Boba Fett & Blue Clone Trooper bust.  I can't wait to go to it!

I'm heading up with some people on Thursday 'cause I get to work at the Con.  I might stay through Sunday, but I haven't decided yet.  Kinda depends on how much they have going on!!!

I'm thinking about going, I'd really like to get some autographed figures.  Anyone know how much the Star Wars signers charge?

I believe they are contracted through C2 Ventures and they should be there all three days.  Normally, they charge $20 per autograph, which includes the picture if the is what you want them to sign.  Their new widescreen pictures are sweet.

If you want them to just sign an item for you, I think it is still $20.

Hope this helps!
