I am a long-time star wars fan and collector, going all the way back to the 70s. But I have never been to a Star Wars convention of any kind before. I am thinking of going to the above convention in NJ during the second weekend in July, but I was wondering if anyone here could share a little bit about what these conventions are like. Obviously there will be some cool Star Wars celelbrities there who would be fun to meet. I would mostly be interested in buying some star wars merchandise, especially stuff that might otherwise be difficult to find. Are there a lot of dealers at these things? Also, this SEEMS like one of the bigger and better ones on the east coast, but am I wrong? Should I wait for something else? Obviously i would have liked to have gone to Celebrtation, but family responsibilites ruled that out. Thanks for answering what is so obviously a newbie question.
