    We didn't really have one here so I thought I would put one up.

    Here is what the Clebration III badges will look like.

    Celebration III badges

    Celebration III Badges - Collectibles with a Punch January 28, 2005

    Every fan who attends Star Wars Celebration III this April 21-24, 2005 at the Indiana Convention Center will be required to wear an admission badge. Far from just a requirement, however, these admission badges are colorful, coveted collectibles unique to the show.
    Badges for attendees will feature iconic Star Wars characters, a different character for each day of the show plus a Darth Vader image for the 4-Day badge. The kids' badges* may be the most fun of all, with Clone Wars cartoon images that correspond to the characters on the adult badges.

    Imperial symbols on each badge will serve as hole punch markers for the Celebration III action figure, a Darth Vader who speaks phrases recorded by actor James Earl Jones exclusively for the toy. The figures are available in limited quantities, and the Celebration Store staff will punch badges, one punch for each figure purchased. Those with 4-day badges may purchase a total of 4 action figures, while supplies last. Those with 1-day badges may purchase 1 action figure, while supplies last.

    Fans and collectors who are wondering how they can possibly get their hands on a full set of these badges will be happy to know that complete sets can be ordered during the event at the Celebration Store. The sets, which will also include exhibitor, VIP, volunteer badges and more, will be shipped after the show. Watch for coming details on Celebration III collectible badge sets on starwars.com and starwarscelebration.com.

    Those who want to save valuable time at Celebration III can order their admission badge online and have it shipped to them before the show. The deadline for ordering shipped badges is March 4, 2005. Those ordering after that date can pick up their badges at Will Call or buy them at the show doors. Register online at starwarscelebration.com.

    *Kids' badges are for kids 12 years and younger. Kids under 6 are admitted to Celebration III free, but are still required to wear a badge. Parents should take their kids under 6 to the registration or Will Call area at the show to receive their free badges.

    George Lucas at CIII[

    George Lucas to Attend Celebration III!
    April 05, 2005

    Star Wars creator/writer/director George Lucas will make an extraordinary guest appearance at Celebration III. His appearance at the Indiana Convention Center during the huge Star Wars fan festival will mark the first time that Lucas has attended a fan convention since the gathering that marked the 10-year anniversary of A New Hope in 1987.
    "George has been very busy finishing Episode III, getting the last shots from ILM, and doing the final mix," said Steve Sansweet, Lucasfilm's head of Fan Relations. "So we were delighted that he was able to carve some time out from a heavily-booked schedule to share some of his thoughts with fans in person as he completes this amazing 30-year screen saga."

    The filmmaker will be appearing on the Sagamore Ballroom stage with host Jay Laga'aia, where he will answer questions about his experiences creating the Star Wars saga, the surprises along the way, and his thoughts about what might come next both for him as a filmmaker and for Star Wars after Revenge of the Sith leaves the big screen.

    Rhode Squadron, the NJO is planning a dinner gathering for Thursday night. We've also invited Boston, Pittsburgh & Dallas. Is anyone interested in a little gathering that evening?

    Also, who's up for hanging out Wednesday evening?

    I'm going to give it a shot. In theory, they should have it figured out by the first seating who will be getting in and who won't. Then those that aren't don't have to stand there for hours only to find out they can't get in.
    In reality, I doubt it will happen that way ;)

    Lil Wook, I think we should just capitalize on the shorter lines. You and I can cause mayhem that way ;)

    Sounds like a battle plan =P

    As far as letting people in, they will probably let people come in till everyone is standing at the back walls and just tell people there is no more room.

    I'm not going to bother with the GL presenation either. I am definitely not a fan of long lines, and there are so many other things I'd rather do. I imagine there will be transcripts of the sessions available later, and since I wouldn't have asked a question anyway and probably wouldn't have been sitting close enough to get a thrill out of it, it's just not worth it.

    So, in other words, I want to join your mayhem team. ;)

    Chris and I bought a couple of 5? mile radios. So if you can reach one of us, we'll be able to relay the message to the other and who in turn will be able to relay it to someone else.

    Complete! hahaha *raspberry*
