    What did people think of it? I thought it was too small and crowded. Next time should be better for the layout hopefully

    The autograph cues were in a bad place, blocking traffic, but things of this size are always hard to get through crowds. MS and I had a great time! The panels were awesome, but the autograph cues were insane :( We spoke to a lot of people, but I'm not sure we caught anyone from here, but we did speak to some Starwalking people.

    We were surprised by how many people thought MS was gi-joe or action man. That was weird. lol See lightsaber = Luke Skywalker!!!

    Melbourne was a nice place to visit too, we went to the aquarium and loved it. Would love to come back!

    Wow, is that someone dressed as Zantana? :eek: Your costumes are awesome :D


    I tried looking for you, but I was roped into helping a mate do a tv show thing, so I didn't get to do anything exciting or line up or even dress up.

    I agree that it was pretty bad on the crowd management side! Other than that...disappointing that some of the main attractions pulled out :( but still goood!

    Yep! She was so glad that so many people recognised her costume!

    I'm disappointed that some of the main guests did pull out, however, those who were there were fantastic! I didn't find myself wanting, in fact, I got frustrated at times there was so much good stuff on, such as panels. I didn't get to go to everything I wanted as it was! lol

    Sorry to hear you didnt get to do anything exciting :(

    Awesome :D Hey Chan!

    The panels sounded great. I'm going to watch a lot of footage of them, so it will kinda be like I'm there. Sort of. :p

    Hey Chansplace, it was nice to briefly meet you! ;)

    I wish I had seen the Zam! I must have been in panels at the time. I would have loved to see it in person. I've seen a few pics on the WETA website, and it's just too cool!
