    So they've started to announce guests, so I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of them around here somewhere. I'll update it when more guests are confirmed.

    So far we have:

    Actors
    Daniel Logan (young Boba Fett)
    Barrie Holland (Lt. Renz, ROTJ)
    Christian Simpson (Lt. Gavyn Sykes "Bravo 6", TPM)
    Derek Lyon (rebel honour guard, ANH [also in Indiana Jones and the last Crusade])
    Tim Dry (Mon Calamari officer, ROTJ]
    Orli Shoshan (Shaak Ti, AOTC/ROTS)
    Erik Walker (Mace Towani, Ewoks - Caravan of Courage/ Ewoks - Battle for Endor]
    Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett, ESB/ROTJ, Captain Colton, ROTS)
    Mike Edmonds (ugnaught, ESB, Logray, ROTJ, Jabba's tail, ROTJ)

    Others
    Steve Sansweet
    Oliver Döhring (director German SW radio dramas)
    Robert Watts (production supervisor ANH, assistant producer ESB, producer ROTJ/Indiana Jones and the temple of doom/Indiana Jones and the last Crusade)

    Yay! I missed both of Boba Fetts during Celebration Europe, now I have the chance to see at least one of them. :)

    And I think you won't be even able to miss it, since he Jedi-Con will be better organised - at least if they keep up their good organisation from the last time, which they told me that they will. :D

    I got his autograph already, but I would like to see him again. :) He seems like a really nice person.

    Updated with new guest, unlike the Jedi-Con site I don't call it star guests though. ;)

    Gleich mal ein paar Vorschläge losgeschickt.
    Zu schade, dass Mr. Morrison schon keine Zeit hat. Soll wohl nicht sein.:(

    I'll send in some suggestions as well, Mel. There are still some good SW people like some authors. ;)

    :oops:
    So that happens when you can't tell English and German apart in your head anymore.8-}

    And I asked for authors, too. There's some I'd realy love to see.
    So now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will work out.[face_praying]

    Is it just me who is a bit worried that it's less than a month to go, and now they are asking for guest suggestions. I would imagine that it would be quite hard to get a gues to come if they are asked such a short time in advance. Well I'm hoping that at least one author will be there.

    I'm worried as well and I wonder what happened, because I think they had a first and second plan for everything. :confused:

    Hopefully they can get an author like Stackpole or Zahn. That would be cool.

    So... Hope dies last. ;)

    So the last guest seems to be Mike Edmonds. I must say that I'm a bit disappointed, especially since Jedi-Con 04 had such fenomenal guest, Jay Laga'aia and first time Amy Allen for example.

    I'm a bit dissapointed as well.
    Only ones I'm a little excited about is Orli Shoshan and perhaps Steve Sansweet.

    Met Jeremy Bulloch in London and the rest I don't have a great need to meet...

    But then again, the guests aren't the most important thing for me - meeting you guys is ;)

    Proping up a table (or a bar for that matter), an honourable job in many countries.
    See you all soon! Have safe journeys. I fly at 10am tomorrow, watch the sky! :p

    Have a safe trip, Tim :D And everyone else who's traveling.

    I hope the table goes well too. You did a nice job adapting my flyer MsLanna :)

    The table is the guest I'm most excited about, I guess, given who's propping it up. :p

    You're right. Best star ever! And a very good coordinator for this special star will be there as well. Maybe we can get some autographs from Ms Lanna and the table for free? [face_praying]

    Thanks Matt.[:D]
    I wanted to send you the finished files, but I was in over my head lately. I ma glad I still have my head. 8-}

    I will now spend the rest of the day making the cookies for the table and then getting the flyers copied.
    You make me curious, DLM, who do you expect?:confused:




    *sees new post*
    o_O
    I hope this madness is not contagious.:p

    Oh, it is, Mel. Otherwise you wouldn't have agreed to organise the table. :p
