    It takes place July 21-25 in San Diego. This is the biggest con in the country! They'll have the SW FanFilm Awards Thursday night, and Star Wars Day is Friday. I'm sure they'll have previews if the SW DVD set, as well as other surprises! Anyone DEFINITELY going, let me know ASAP, so we can figure a carppol, where to stay, etc. My cousin works for Holiday Inn, so I'll see if we can get a hook-up. Deadline for pre-registration is APRIL 16.

    Hey, if someone wouldn't mind getting me a Silver Sandtrooper I would appreciate it very much. I can trade for some Silver Clones, or pay you by check. :)

    Attack pattern Delta... The single file formation that allows the lead fighter to take hits while the other a screened behind to prepare to strike. Personally I like a classic pincer formation... ANYWAY!!!!! Hell yeah! Let's do this! :)

    Looks like tix for the Star Wars Breakfast will go on sale at starwarsshop.com on June 3 on a first come, first serve basis. Last year Dale and I were only two of three people in costume. Cool exclusives, and we got to have breakfast with BOTH Boba Fetts! This year, who knows?

    OK, they've started selling tix for the SW Celebrity Breakfast for Saturday, July 24 from 7-9 am at the Marriott next to the con. Tickets are *gulp* $57.32. (I think they were $30 last year) Besides having breakfst with some of the SW celebs that will be there, you get a con exclusive silver sandtrooper figure, a goody bag from Lucasfilm, and one fan will get a "deluxe gift package", whatever that means! I'm not sure if I'm going. I guess it depends who's going to be there, like Billy Dee or Carrie Fisher. Now if Natalie were there, I'd MAKE her breakfast, hand-feed her grapes, whatever! "I will do anything you ask."

    $57.32 for breakfast is quite ummm... a lot. Yeah, I think it would depend on who's going. It's alright I usually skip breakfast anyway. If Natalie was going every fan boy and their dads would be there. ;)
