    Hello fellow WNUbies!! :D

    You've heard of the Celebration Europe II (CE II) placed in Essen in the end of this month for sure, right?

    I'll be there on Saturday and it'll be cool to get to know some of you! Usually one gets to know a lot of new people at a celebration or convention. So, this is nothing official or so - there are parties and meet up planned already (see the CE board). It's just about who will be there and with whom we might end up talking.

    So, who joins us at Essen and enjoy the SW-craziness?

    And how would we WNUbies get to recognise each other?

    Hope to see a lot of you there!! :D

    I had full intentions of being there this year, but am obligated to be in the US at that time. Won't be home in Eire until late August, now.

    Had full intention of going with some friends but have a baby due in a couple of weeks which scupered them plans.

    Teach me for saying "the only thing that would stop me going is <xxxx> " . . . ;)

    Boy, would I ever love to go...I love Germany and of course I love SW, so combining the two would be fabulous! Unfortunately, a trip to Europe is out of reach of my budget right now:(. But hopefully Skiara and others around here can give us a full report, complete with photos!

    And Hando: congrats on the new baby coming...now "Commander Gree" will have a little sidekick! :)

    I'll go the next time, I promise.
    Not that that is of much help now. Or relevant to this threads purpose.

    But I hope that everyone who goes has a great time.

    Not coming you all?! :(

    If I haven't said it earlier, good luck for you three, Hando! :)

    My life is starting to spin again. Now, Darth RL wants to challenge me on that said Saturday. It'll be a tough fight, you can imagine.

    Hope you have a blast. CE I was one of my favourite weekends ever. :)

    Sorry, I should have explained more - thats just what my son is calling her she won't actually be called Leia! ;)

    Although he IS called Lucas - and often gets called Luke - for some reason he wants to be known as Commander Gree. [face_laugh]

    So she's having a nicname already! Great!:D
    How is it going? Any news from the baby wanting to say 'hi' to the world or prefers to keep up the tension? Hando? :)

    So, it's just Regor and me who are going to CE II? No one else? :eek:

    :) Almost there. . . almost there . . . .
    Think my wife is TOTALLY fed up now but feels things are moving on. Under 2 weeks to go now hence I couldn't risk Celebration. :_|
    Had to be something pretty epic to keep me away. :)

    CaptainRegor, how did you like it? Was it your first one?

    Hando, did the baby say 'hi' to the world already? :)


    For everyone who wasn't at the CE II, there'll be another chance next year: Jedi-Con ForCever (since it's in German, here's the basic information: 3rd-5th of Oktober 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany). I'm sure, there'll be a thread about it in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/forums/fanforce-conventions.10290/]FanForce Conventions board[/link] very soon. :)

    Pensivia, A Chorus of Disapproval and Zapdos, now, there's no chance to avoid it! You have to come! :D

    I am planning to be home in Eire for awhile at that time. Those dates may actually work.

    Thanks for the update, Skiara! That does sound tempting...especially if Oktoberfest will still be going on then :D

    (IIRC, in Germany, the Oktoberfest period actually starts in September?...but not only in Bavarian towns, right.(?)..does Dusseldorf observe Oktoberfest too?)

    Nah, she's waiting. Just anticipating, for things that she'll. . . .

    Sorry broke into song there, but not no can't be far off now though. [face_nail_biting]

    Thanks for asking. :)

    Great, Pensivia and Chorus! :D Would be pretty cool! :D

    The traditional Oktoberfest is in Bavaria, but I think there are other places that copy the original one. If you like to go to the Oktoberfest, then go to Bavaria. Everything else might be disappointing in comparision. But why not going there and afterwards to the Jedi-Con or how about a small travel through Germany. There's more to discover then just Bavarian Oktoberfest and Jedi-Con. ;) :p

    Keep us up to date, Hando. :)

    Will do for sure. :)

    Jedi Con looks great and one show I'd like to attend one year. I have the T-Shirts, have the limited figure packs etc. (But never been the show [face_blush] )

    One of my favourite SW T-shirts from the 04 Con i think has Red + white Clones and Super Battle Droids on which is also one of my favourite Exclusive figure packs done in red and white again and has a Clone and Super Battle Droid within.

    Other figure exclusives that I have from JC are the 2000/2001 blue packaged C-3PO, the TVC Zuckuss + 4-LOM (same pack as Celebration) and the Shadow Trooper set. There is probably more but they are the ones I have. :)

    I see, Hando. I've got the coffee cups of the last three Jedi-Cons. My most favorites. :D But the figures are cool as well. At the CE II I saw them for 60€ IIRC.

    Would be cool, Zapdos. Do you know which cities you'll visit or what you plan to do? Lots of sightseeing or partying or relaxing?

    60 € wow, was that for the Han / Boba combo. . . . that looks amazing but its going on Ebay for STUPID money. Don't think I'll own one of them anytime soon. :(
