    I would like to attend this one, but we're leaving on a road trip the following friday, so, not sure if I'll be able to swing it with work. I may have you snag some sigs for me AmShak. I'll be there if I can make it happen.

    Wish I could go. Pretty good event a couple of years back when I 'ventured forth' to the great State of Texas! Great memories of a superb visit with VERY cool people!

    Welcome to the Spy, LT! Lucious Talvloinne is a friend of mine from Force Pike, the Royal Guard website. :)

    AmSHak, LT,

    I requested to have Sat Oct 25 off from work. If my rotation stays the same, I would normally have that weekend off anyway. However, I'm taking the following weekend off for a 5 day vacation, so things might change. Anyway, there's a decent chance I could make this one happen. :cool:

    Now I just need to squeeze a little more money out of the budget, and it could work.

    Well, I just got home from Dallas. For a small convention, this of was a lot of fun. I met up with fellow Bothans AmShak, IG-PPO, and Luscious Talvlionne. I also bumped into some friends of Darth Boru's that we ahd dinner with at CIV in Los Angeles last year.

    Autograph lines were relatively short. Lots of artists present as well. I picked up autos frm Al Lampert and Robert Watts. Robert Watts brought along his Crew Jacket from ESB, along with one of the ESB clap-boards. AmShak took a picture of me holding the clapboard and wearing the jacket! :)

    Hasbro was present, but all they had was the Big Millenium Flacon display from San DIego Comic Con.

    Steve Sansweet showed some clips from Celebration Japan and SDCC, and we got a sneak preview of Nov 7th's Clone Wars episode (just the first half). This was followd by a Q&A session with some of the Clone Wars voice talent (David Acord, Matt Wood, Tom Kane, and Ashley Eckstein).

    The Dealer Hall was loaded with lots of good buys, most of the steals went quickly, but numerous good buys were still to be found all day.

    Overall, a fun day. I'll post a few pictures soon. IG-PPO and AmShak have some pics on their cameras we'll have to wait for.

    I was lucky to be in the area this weekend and had the change to attend. It was a fun convention. I expected to see more from Hasbro, but as DS said they only have the BMF.

    Got autographs from:

    Jewel Staite from Firefly - She was nice but couldn't pose with her in the autograph hall. But got a photo with her in the Photo Ops room. It was extra but I got a nice photo with her.

    Leeanna Walsman
    Erin Gray from Buck Rogers.
    Ashley Eckstein
    Matthew Wood
    Al Lampert
    Jack McKenzie

    Bruce Campbell - It was nice to meet Bruce in person. Unfortunately, like Carrie Fisher in CIV, the time was limited so I couldn't take a photo with him. :(. But I got a cool photo of him which I post next week (I forgot my cables in my home.) The Q&A was fun, he even make a prank call to a friend of one of the attendees.

    I was glad to meet Warren again and get to know AmShak and LT. Hope to meet again in CV!!!
