I'm seriously considering attending this.  And Mr. Christensen isn't the only Hayden who will be there.  :)

Heard about this just before C4 and am looking into attending just for Hayden as it would be awesome to meet him. All the Vaders are going to be in attendence so it should be a hell of a time  ;D.

Any word about Bob Anderson?  He was the Vader dueling stunt double, and he's a legendary hollywood swordmaster.  I know that he worked on TESB at the least.  He also was the swordmaster for LOTR.

And I'm seriously thinking about driving up to Toronto for this one.

It's still a pretty impressive lineup, Bob Anderson or not.  I'll be making my way up across the border for this one.

Even in Canadian dollars that's a bit steep.

Especially when you consider how much the US dollar has fallen in the last four years.  The greenback has lost about one third of its value since late 2002.  Forecasts are for dollars, Canadian and US, to trade at par by year's end.  Most of you guys weren't even alive the last time the Canadian dollar had this much value.  It's been a long time coming.

OK, so I am reading over at RS that for an additional $95. you can get another autograph but wait it gets better... yeah right.

This from Ben Stevens in that thread:

Quote
Fyi scummers... I got a flyer from Aman (the promoter for Toronto) at San Diego at Comic-Con with Hayden cancelled from appearing at the Toronto event. Temeura has been booked as his replacement.

For those of you who have been in contact with me the past couple of weeks wanting Hayden photos and I have been cryptic in my response about you needing to wait... Now it has been formally announced. I only found out from Aman a few weeks ago that Hayden couldnt attend and didn't want those of you who wrote about quantity Hayden pricing to get stuck with lots of unusable inventory... Hopefully Hayden can make Aman's or another event soon.

Not so good.  :-\

Not sure WTF is going on with this Hayden Christensen thing, the Expo site has nada mentioned. Only that Hayden Panettiere has been postponed until 2008.

Hmmm.  Well Hayden Christensen was the whole reason for me to go to the Toronto Con.  If he's not showing then I'm not making the trip.  To me it sounds like he got a movie gig and cancelled the appearance.  That happens when you're dealing with actors who work.  The money of a movie or tv role is way better than what they'll make at a convention.
