This past weekend, I attended Fan Days IV both days and had a blast. I arrived at the new Irving Convention Center about a half hour early on Saturday. The structure is a dirty metal color, and strongly resembles a Sandcrawler. Clearly I’m in the right place. With my Priority pass, I’m quickly ushered inside, where I get to queue up. No sooner do I walk in the door when I run in to Karen and Wayne, friends from Louisiana’s Bast Alpha Garrison. Wayne is dressed as Episode III Anakin, and Karen as Juno Eclipse. We talked for a while waiting for our turn to enter the dealer hall (VIP passes got in a half hour before us). Upon entering the dealer room, I quickly loose sight of Karen and Wayne, and am swept up in the aisles of Star Wars swag. I made several purchases over the weekend, the first of which was a vintage Die-Cast Y-Wing Fighter, which completes my basic set of Vintage die-cast ships (not counting that TIE Bomber). I also found a bootleg vintage Royal Guard figure from Mexico….quite ugly, but cool at the same time. At one of the last booths I hit, I managed to snag a Star Tours Jedi Training Academy figure pack, something I’d been needing for a couple years now. Along the way I ran into Trent, a friend from Longview, who was also hunting bargains.
