I think it will be a blast, but it's going to absolutely suck if I can't get my hands on that Blue Clone Trooper bust.  I will be so pissed off if I don't get my hands on one of those.  I will just have to get there first thing Friday morning I guess.

 :( Well, I will not be attending Wizards World now.  >:(

Something came up where I can't attend. #*@#(%(#@)#(  >:(
So I will be missing all the fun of seeing people dressed up, seeing the Hasbro area, getting some autographs that I wanted, maybe missing out on the Blue Clone Bust and more.

*I already talked with Philip Wise (RebelScum / C2 Ventures) and he will be hooking me up with some autographs through the store at TFN. The Autos will not be on my custom made collages that I make but at least I will be getting the autos I want.

*I also know two people who are going for the Anime stuff. They are both going to try to acquire the Blue Clone Bust for me. I hope they get them. They will be there the whole weekend. I think they probably already left today since they have a room at one of the hotels.

I was looking forward to this trip.  >:(

Have fun all and maybe next time we can meet in person.

David, why can't you go anymore?  If it's kinda personal shoot me a PM.  I was looking forward to meeting you and all the other Star Wars fans that I've made friends with.

Oh no it is nothing personal.
I just do not have the funds right now to get up there. This week it seems that I got most of my bills which usually come at the middle of the week and I need to pay them off. You know priority before luxury.

Plus I was going to be going up with a freind who now has backed out just this morning.

I could still go if I left about 3am tonight then head straight home after doing a few things there. But that is just too much of a strain for me to do. It takes between 5 - 6 hours of driving from Indy to Chicago. I am bummed about not attending. Next year I will be there for sure. I have attended Wizards for the past two years. I hope to make it a yearly trip.

Well, it was definitely a pleasure to meet fellow JD forumite Dustrho at Chicago.  You're a gentleman and a scholar, my friend!

Thanks for the compliments Nick!  I forgot to mention how I met you there.  My bad!  It was also a pleasure meeting up with you there.

No problem!  I understand just how busy you must be after returning home from Chicago.  I know I've been busy as a bee!

For me?  Being among the last 5 people to win the drawing for the blue Clone Trooper bust.  I usually never win ANYTHING in raffles!  I guess this changes that, huh?

 I guess no one's checked Rebelscum or WizardUniverse, but Hasbro won't be at Chicago...

Actually, I've known Hasbro wouldn't be attending for a while.  This thread is OLD!  It's about the show from last year.

So, anyone here going to be attending this show?  I met Dustrho at this show last year, and it's always cool to meet other forum members.

I met Dustrho too last year.  I have a lot of fun but am unable to go this year.  It's too bad Hasbro isn't going as the display they had last year of the Battle of Geonosis was awesome and the main reason I made a similar display myself.
