    That was going on during C2. I think they gave them some huge room that never seemed to have anyone in it.

    Oh yeah, I think I remember that. Wasn't it right by the Jedi Starfighter?

    Denver = Not good. Cannot drive there.

    I would rather not carry all the stuff I want to buy or will be bringing and such on a plane.

    I'd prefer Indy again, even though Denver is closer..

    Either way I'd be going by plane.

    Just split the differecne and have it in Omaha. The new convention center here is under construction and should be complete this fall. Hard to find a more centrally located city.

    I am fine with Denver or Indy though.

    I'll be driving no matter where it is and I live in Southern California. I was angry at C2 because I wanted the life size Yoda they had with a lightsaber. I couldn't even imagine how to get it back home so I made the decision at that time that I would drive to the next one NO MATTER WHAT.

    In regards to trying to limit people on items, it's going to be very difficult to do. Sure, you might think punching their badge will work. Well, not if you're selling sets of said badges and allowing people with advanced passes to buy per day badges as well. They'll just pickup a set or a per day badge and get that punched too. And marking or stamping on someone's hand isn't going to work either, they'll just wipe it off.

    No, I'm afraid the only way it will work is instead of having the huge rush of people that you had at C2, you have a line and allow people to go up to 1 of several cash registers at a time. That way, people can't just grab 2 figures (or whatever), turn around, and get back in line. They'd have to get in the back of the line behind thousands of other fans at that point. Of course, that one stop the determined scalper from getting 5 or 6 friends together and having each of them by 2 figures each and just giving them a small cut of the sales. In any case, you're not going to be able to stop them no matter what you do.

    Myself, I've learned to stop trying to fight them and just deal with them. If you know there are some people that CAN'T get something and are really gonna WANT it, why not capitalize on it? Yes, it sucks. But, we should get over it and just realize that that's how capitalism works. Supply and demand folks, that's all there is to it.

    Works for me :D I think the convention center here is a little small for it though :p But hey, I'll save money on a hotel since I can just sleep at home :)

    MGibson:

    Great post about preordering SW merchandise. The store was pretty rough and actually, the merchandise was not that great. Having the ability to preorder should theoretically allow the vendors to calculate what they will need so there is enough for everyone. It mightbe hard to organize a pick up if you really think about it, but it could be a fantastic idea.

    C3 is going to be great as it will be the last one!!!

    Thanks, Chewie. Preordering stuff can NOT be that tough. I'm not saying they have to bag packages and have them ready for you when you get to the store. When you order the stuff via mail or the Net, you receive a sheet that spells out what you ordered. The guy/girl behind the counter goes and gets it and you're done. For a fee, you can wait until after C3 and have it all mailed to you.

    And you're right: the store WAS rough. I was extremely disappointed with the ball caps. VERY cheap with a goofy fabric patch ironed on to the front. C'mon! Let's see some quality stuff!

    Maybe we could go together. I think most SAS flights to the States go from Copenhagen anyway.

    If you've never been to the States before, you will *definately* want it to be in San Diego.

    there's a new story on theforce.net with some tidbits on cIII:

    The location of Celebration 3 will be chosen in August and will be announced at the end of August. Lisa Stevens from the Fan Club also stated that they expected to do more Celebrations in the future after Episode III.
