    Personally, I don't think I am. My car died on me last week so money is going to be a bit tight from now until the end of the year (or until I get a new job w/a 6-figure income :) ). It should be a good time though. Billy Dee and Ray Park are both going to be signing. I already got BDW at C#, but would love to get Ray's sig sometime.

    BTW, welcome to the boards Bieren! If you want more info on this con, you can check out our dedicated thread to it here:

    thanks Darth Wormie. Cool name; I haven't read the book in a while and forgot about Luke's nickname. I usually post artwork over at the Fan Art thread, but thought I'ld check in with my nieghbors, to see who is going to Milford. I think I'll come back.

    Glad you got it! Alot of people ask where I got 'Wormie' from. :)

    So where do you hail from? There are a few of us both here and on the Foxboro boards from the MetroWest area (including myself).

    Hope to see you around.

    Actually. I live in CT, but I plan on going to the Milford convention.
    As for someone not knowing who Wormie is... what would Fixer and Tank think.

    Nice work! Did you go to school for art or are you self taught?

    I recently completed a Masters in Illustration, but before that I was primarily self taught.

    Wow, congrats. Where'd you get your masters, if you don't mind me asking?

    I believe the guys over on the Foxboro are going for their October meet. Unless some family commitment raises it's head, I plan on being thre as well.

    You mean the CR of the Boston Rebels isn't famous enough for you? ;) LOL.

    Other SW celebs scheduled to appear include Nalini Krishan(Barris Offee), Daniel Logan(young Boba) and Mary Oyaya (Luminara Unduli).

    In this month's SW Insider there is a half-page ad for the con with all the guests listed. Not sure why they haven't updated their site yet.

    A guy I work with is part of the 501st and from what he's told me, the company that is running the convention has decided to focus on the 1985 Patriots team. The NE 501st has cancelled their appearance due to the lack of Star Wars guests.

    I just called the contact number, from the MF website, and they said the "1985 Patriots have taken up the whole event," and there will be no Star Wars guest, but they will reschedule later. Well I'm ticked off, as many of you know I'm an artist (you can check my stuff at the Fan Art section of the main site) and have been preparing many a painting to be autograph at this event---now I have a house full of signless Darth Maul and Lando Calrissian paintings.

    Thanks for the info JKJOE_D. I was just talking about this event with DarthLucanas last night and we were wondering what the deal was. Too bad :( Maybe that will free up some SW guests for SMF in November.

    I was really looking forward to going to my first "convention". Plus my wife was going to be at her hairdresser in town for a couple hours, so I had the perfect excuse to escape. I still might stop by for Cam Neely, but his prices for autographs (especially jerseys) are a little bit too much.

    Now that he's able to add 'HOF' to his autographs, the price has doubled. :(

    My best sports autograph ever? Bobby Orr. He autographed 2 items for me for free and even shook my hand and commented on my B's throwback jersey. Nicest. Athlete. EVER!
