    After recieving the first CE news email yesterday, It is now confirmed that showmasters (the people behind collectormania) have been put in charge of the guests at CE.

    This is pretty good news, as they have been able to get almost all the major cast members (Hamil,Ford and Daniels excluded) to attend their events at one time or another.

    Also, Dave Prowes has said to have confirmed that he is attending this event.

    So, speculations, wish lists, prior experiences with guests (good and bad) all in here.

    Although, I'd seriously doubt he'd ever do it, Ian McDiarmid would be on my wish-list. Harrison Ford would probably NEVER do autographs, but if paid enough, he might do a Q&A session. Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher; I can see them being up for it.

    I'm pretty sure Jeremy Bulloch would do it if asked since he lives in the UK. However I'd also love to see Tem Morrison attend as well. He did Collectormania in Milton Keynes in 2005. I've met both actors and had great experiences with them - both were happy to chat for a bit and pose for a photo with me. Of course I also made it a point to seek them both out early in the day before they had huge lines. (Bulloch was at Memorabilia in 2004).

    I'd stand in line for Ian McDiarmid as well.

    Yeah, I got Jeremy Bulloch's autograph in 2005 and he was really nice and friendly, it would be great if he was there.

    I'm looking forward to see whos attending celebration. I think there will be a lot of guests up for it, as its a pretty big event, and they'd want to be part of it.
    Also, it would be good to see Dave Prowse with a smile on his face for once, and not charging an arm and a leg for his autographs. =]

    I'd love to have Jay Lag'aia there, it's hard to find a funnier, more proffessional and friendlier guy around there.

    I emailed Jeremy Bulloch, asking if he was going, and he replied saying that he would go if everythings o.k.

    I think we can count on Dave Prowse, Kenny Baker, Jeremy Bulloch and Peter Mayhew to come. Be at conventions seem to be all they do ... no offence intended.

    Apart from the main/hero actors, the ones I most like to get auto's from are Denis Lawson (Wedge), Kenneth Colley (Piett) and Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine).

    W00t?:eek:
    I met him and he was all nice and friendly. And I got myself a bunch of autographs for free.:confused:
    Cannot have been my charms, because right then I had about none of that.:p

    If they could get Ian McDiarmid, then that would be sensationally but I very much doubt he'll do it, but I'm sure Showmasters will have a go.

    The bonus of it being in London is that a lot of the cast and crew are London based, so it makes things a bit easier, cheaper and allows for more variety. Sounds like the art department will be attending too, which is great news (well, for me anyway :p ).

    Last I heard, the only way to get HF's autograph was to find him after the after show party. Seems he's far less reluctant with a drink or three inside him .

    This info came from the UK's biggest star wars autograph collector. ( or so he said).:)

    Shame Mike Sheard is no longer with us as this would have been right up his street.:_|

    I just hope christopher lee attends cause apart from star wars I just love horror movies so have always found his appearances in those movies amazing. Just a shame that peter cushing is still not around but I would like the chance to ask christopher what he was like as a person as they worked together in alot of movies.

    We certainly can dream, but just a dream it'll always be **sigh**
    Plus we may have to push Gael García Bernal out of the way first, the swine! :p

    Lighning Bear played a Scout trooper in RotJ. He's very distinctive looking and will certainly stand-out in a crowd, in a very good way :D

    I think Jeremy Bulloch is more or less confirmed too.
