Right on! I think I just convinced my wife to go to C3. She'll be accompanying me on the adventures, but I think you guys'll get a kick out of her. After all, she's the one that supports my collecting
I think she'll probably come out for a few hours each day, and then go shopping when she gets overwhelmed by the geekiness. So, knowing her, it may be a competition to see who can spend more money.
As for line-ups, I can be convinced to go anywhere. Obviously, the talking Vader is a necessity - I may actually pick up all 8 that I'll be entitled to (my wife is going to get a 4 day pass as well). I figure some of my Canadian brothers in arms will be interested. Of course, we'll be flying, so that will be a factor in what I can take home because my goodies will have to go in a suitcase to go home, and airlines aren't exactly known for being gentle on luggage.
Now I've never collected any of the MR pieces, but seeing one with my own eyes may convince me to pick up one of the exclusives.
Like you guys said, I'd be surprised if there wasn't an exclusive from GG, which I'd be interested in since I've got a couple Busts and Bust-Ups.
Oh, and sign me up for the drunken line-ups.
