    The people at Armageddon are in the works of organising a couple of Star Wars celebs to come to the big event next year. They would like to know who you (the people) would like to see. This is a great opportunity to meet our favourite stars in the flesh.

    If you had the choice of 2, who would you pick?

    1) Harrison Ford

    2) Mark Hamill

    3) David Prowse

    4) Anthony Daniels

    5) Peter Mayhew

    I would have to pick Mr Harrison (Indy) Ford
    and Anthony Daniels.

    Truthfully, i dont think it matters which of the stars come to Armageddon, Im sure any Kiwi fan would be keen to see any Star wars Celebrity in New Zealand.

    I think Harrison Ford would be the least likely to come but I'd envy you guys if he did.

    Don't like your chances for getting Harrison. So I'll pick 2 that might:

    Anthony Daniels
    Kenny Baker

    Of course if you could get Mark Hamill, I'd consider having a holiday in NZ at the same time.....

    I think your most likely chances would be with Prowse, Mayhew or Daniels (and Daniels doesn't visit many conventions, so that would be pretty hard, too).

    Ford definitely doesn't go to conventions, and I don't think Hamill does, either. Of the available options, I'd take Daniels and Mayhew.

    by the way does anyone know whether or not the Star Wars Magazines are still available in NZ or do we basically have to order it from overseas?

    good question Indy, not sure to be honest.

    your best bet would be to check with the store(s) that used to stock SW mags, to see if they'll still bring them in.

    I still have a subscription to the Star Wars insider thru the fanclub, so hopefully I'll still get my next few issues...

    Hi folks,
    First post here, so be gentle with me.
    I'd have to go with David Prowse (honourary leader of the 501st!) and Anthony Daniels (all-round nice guy)
    My two wupi-upi.

    Hey TK, welcome.

    Actually some bad news, last I heard the SW stars had pulled out. BUT there are still two celebs to be named (apprently) so maybe there will be a suprise. Who Knows.

    The last I read, David Prowse was back in hospital with some major problems, so he may not be available for anything (although this expo isn't until next year).

    I hope he gets better soon though.

    My picks would have to be Dave Prowse ('cause it could be the last time anyone sees him) and Anthony Daniels ('cause hes in all the movies


    P.S. I saw a get well card thing happening for Dave Prowse on a Star Wars site (can't remember which) but some bumhole had written a scathing letter with a swear word every second word, didn't find it funny at all, Prowse is really sick aparently. Some real losers in the big wide world aren't there?

    In a reply to a e-mail I sent Peter Mayhew, he said he would love to come to N.Z.! I wonder if the Armageddon guys contacted him?

    P.S. for all you Wookie fans, Peter's web site is www.petermayhew.com

    EDIT: does anyone know the contact details for Armageddon? and if you do please post it!

    Hey cool he replied again! I thought all The Star Wars Stars would get millions of e-mails a day from nutty fans (myself excluded)

    Now I wonder who else we could get...?

    EDIT: Notice its not just us that get double posts!
