    And, along with Mark Hamill being added to the list, don't forget Dee Bradley Baker (the voice of Captain Rex, among others)has been added to OPX as well.

    OPX has a great selection of 8x10's for CV this year. Better than they had for C3 and C4 IMO.

    Sadly no. The most we could get from Mr. Ford would possibly be a via sattelite welcome on opening day. He did that from the set of Indy 4 at Comic Con with the cast. Mr. Ford is probably one of the busiest actors around. After one movie, he starts another. He definately doesn't have the time to go to conventions right now. Remember, twenty years had to pass between Indy 3, and 4 part of because of that reason! The only time you could get an autograph from him is if you happened to see him between filming, walking around LA. I've heard he's very nice to fans, though. As long as you don't only mention Star Wars all the time! lol Mentioon his work in movies like, Witness, Clear and Present Danger, Air Force One (If I'd meet him, I'd call him Mr. President!) Indy. Heck, to impress him, say you watched Dead Head on a Merry go Round just to see his first performance. Only mention Star Wars as an after thought.

    This is meeting Harrison Ford 101. lol Im just psyched I get to meet my child hood hero, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill!

    Autograph FAQ's:

    OPix has had private signings with Harrison, but they were around $400/500. I think they had an option to be personalized too. Maybe they'll do it again. But other than that, yes, you'd have to know where he would be filming, or maybe doing a talk show, like David Letterman or something. I know people have gotten Natalie Portman at shows like that.

    The ones I'm most interested in seeing are for the most part crew members, as opposed to cast members, actually. I'm kind of disappointed they don't have a print of Matthew Wood in his role as sound editor, but instead opt for only the more glamorous role of Grievous. I honestly think his behind-the-scenes work was more important for the saga than his voice portrayal of said villain.

    Disappointed to hear Ken Colley had to cancel. Was really looking forward to adding him to my Imperial Officer autograph collection.

    Depends on the guest. Some don't do pictures at all, some charge, some will take a picture for free if you get an autograph and others will take pictures for free even if you don't buy anything.

    If you're talking about Mark Hamill (or some of the other headliners), there's a good chance you won't even be let in line without an autograph ticket. Not everyone is willing to pay for Hamill's autograph, but just about everyone at CV would want a picture with him if it was free. Could you image the problems if 10,000 people were in line just for a picture?

    Most of the smaller names are much more accessible, since they either have a very small line or no line at all.

    If the guest is charging for a picture, they usually do have a sign at the table listing the price.

    I've sat with a few guests before and the ones I was with had no problem taking pictures with fans. But, they did seem to get a little annoyed with the people who didn't say please and thank you. Be polite.

    When standing in line to get their autographs, could I pull out the 'ole camera and take a picture or two from a distance? Or would security come over and beat the snot out of me?

    YES.
    At CIII , I tried to take Billy Dee's and Amy Alan's picture from the start of the auto line and a guy pointed at me and told me to stop it.

    Add Anthony Daniels to the no photos from a distance list. If he continues with his normal procedure, he will pose for a picture with you after you get a autograph. He's very nice to the fans, you can usually go behind the table and stand next to him to get a photo.

    But do not try to snap a candid shot while you are on line. For whatever reason he goes nuts.

    Most of the guests are fine with photos though. Just act normal, if you start acting weird stalker like, you will freak out the guests. Go up say hi and politely ask for a pic, a lot of them will say yes.

    I've actually seen "support staff" hold up a piece of cardboard in front of trigger-happy fans to block the shot.
    However, as stated before, being patient, well-mannered and ask politely goes a long way.

    Does anyone know, or can speculate on if David Prowse "might" set up shop in a nearby hotel for us fans? Or will LFL take some kind of legal action against him now if he does any of this?

    Thanks! I took a blank Arizona Cardinals Reebok jersey and had my wife sew on the tackle-twill letters & numbers, and the patches. We made it before CIV and I wore it there.

    Framing will definitely be in the works.
