    Checking the website, it says Ostrander is there both Saturday and Sunday, though doesn't specify which Wheatley will be.

    I'm going Saturday, so if there's anything in particular anyone wants me to see if I get the chance to ask, just say.

    No guarantee I'll get to see anyone specific, but can do my best.

    Well, since we were talking about Ostrander and Wheatley and since I'm such a big fan of theirs that I don't care about asking someone else something else, could you ask if they'd be interested to work on SW again, or maybe if they already work on something?

    To be honest though, I hope that they'll announce the Ostrander&Wheatley SW comic before you get the chance to ask :p

    @spicer If the queue to see them isn't nuts, sure thing. Like I just said in the Zahn thread, I admit they'd probably just have to come out with the polite "If they asked me, sure I'd be interested" reply, but... who knows. I'm still pondering whether to just get my Legacy #1 signed, or something more personal...

    If anybody has any suitably comical ideas that I could get a bunch of the Legend authors to all sign, please let me know, as I've kind of thought it'd be funny to do something equivalent to when a sports team all sign a football, but this be the Legends Team. :p

    (And sadly, I lack a stormtrooper helmet, and only have a Vader one, which is harder to write on.)

    Some piece of fundamental Legends lore ala Heir to the Empire or Dark Empire. Sure, they didn't WRITE for it but it's like a big building block of the EU which people worked off of.

    No pressure Zor, don't feel obliged to ask them on my behalf. And yes, even if you managed to get to ask, I suspect that their answer would be something along those lines. I wish I could attend the event, but oh well [face_sigh]Have a great time!

    I pondered that, though my HTTE copy wasn't a first edition, which is a shame, but alas... still probably the best be at the moment yeah.

    But I do have a first edition of Crucible though-- it's even still mint condition!!! :cool: (as I never read it :p)-- but that'd be asking them to sign on their tombstone. :p

    Go for something really out of left field. Like a copy of Star Trek: The Motion Picture on VHS. It's only $2.50 on eBay!

    hahha, that's kind of genius, should totally do that. Hell, it'd make the book actually worth something.

    All right, all right. I'm all for appeasement.

    Er... how about snail slime, then?

    Yeah but JJA is a terrible film maker in general so it was okay to criticize him :p

    Yeah, but RJ doesn't have JJ's obsession with the mystery box. :p

    Already more creative looking than The Force Awakens.

    You could ask Tim Zahn to sign Sacrifice. ;)

    For some reason that was the only SW book to survive my teen purge, incidentally. Still have the hardcover.

    I had Shannon sign my copy of Sacrifice, literally a day or two after it came out and Mara died.

    She was pretty politely annoyed with Mara's demise, to be fair.

    Isn't it dangerous enough that I'll be exposing myself to the Legend-Disney war, I don't want to put myself in the firing line between Innies and Outies at the same time. [face_worried]

    And yes, I have just reduced the EU Referendum to a battle between bellybuttons. Deal with it, people. :p

    Actually you lost me at "exposing myself".
