    That's true. I remember a quote saying that they would have people from in front of and behind the camera. So far, McCallum is the only behind the scenes person coming so far.

    And he will most likely be drunk.

    So who else can we count on from behind the scenes?

    A lot of the authors and artists will be at various tables and probably availabe for autographs (for free to I think). I know there was one artist listed that will actually be working in the kids area teaching them how to draw villians.

    Heard zero about behind the scenes people...just have to wait for the Official site to spill those beans.

    "Celebration II will present three separate stages featuring celebrities from all parts of the Star Wars galaxy. From the screen, to the back lot, to the effects shop, to the sketchpad, to the novel keyboard - the guests at Celebration II will represent all facets of Star Wars talent from all eras of the saga. Come see your favorite players, and the new faces of fresh talent. Attend interviews, Question & Answer sessions, and more with the people who make Star Wars, well...Star Wars."

    There it is. Maybe WotC is "waiting" to unveil the behind the scenes people at the convention....kind of like they are waiting to do a lot of other stuff until they get to Indy.

    Sorry.....just bitter at WotC right now. Still no response from them on ANY of my questions.

    MaximusVader: I would try calling Rob Bane or someone at WotC. I sent numerous emails to Mr. Bane regarding the weapons issue and never recieved a response. I called him today and I got an answer.

    What was the response on the weapons issue? Are toy blasters okay?

    Where are you getting the info on the unconfirmed people? Is that just a fan wishlist or something??

    No wishlist. From what I've been told it's from a planning schedule....there are some bigger names left on it, but negotiations are still in place. If I tell you any more, I'll have to ban you. ;)

    Crap, forgot to check the official site...Apologies to Nick Gillard...I'll get him up on Monday.

    Wow, the concert ticket looks pretty cool:

    Hey Sebulba-

    Will the official Site confirm people on your unconfirmed list soon?

    How many actors will autograph on your unconfirmed list?

    I would love to get Wedge, Sebulba, and Watoos autographs. The big names will probably be impossible to get.

    This convention is getting better and better as time draws near.

    Stay on Target! Stay on Target!!

    As you've most likely seen elsewhere, the C2 autograph list is final. Bonnie Piesse was the last person to be added.

    I think the only autograph I might get is Carrie Fisher. Well, I hope I can get hers.

    Is Anthony Daniels going to be signing autographs elsewhere in the convention center? For Both Dragoncon Conventions that I went to where he was a guest, he was signing in an area by himself. Can anyone confirm this for CB2. The reason why I'm asking is because I wanted to get his & Kenny Baker's autograph on an Episode II poster that we are going to giveaway for charity at our Episode II line. :D

    Thats totally cool that your doing that. A pat on your back. I wish he was signing, I hope. Him and carrie are the 2 I only want. I wish Ray was coming. Do you think the Carrie Fisher line is going to be impossible? if all else fails, I could go get Kenny's. I'm just trying to limit myself, you know $$$$$$ are limited. heck, If i can get a Toy Fair vader, I bet I can figure out a way to get her's. That and the exclusive fig are my two major hunts I want there. I know there will be other items, but right now those are the biggies.

    There will be representation from the Seattle Star Wars Society as well. Look for our recruiting poster at the Downtown Marriott.

    Based on past experience at comic shows featuring one guest everybody there would want to meet I originally estimated the Carrie Fisher line at about two hours. However since she is only going to appear Saturday and Sunday, I'm upping my estimate to between two-and-a-half to threee hours. First thing Saturday morning I'm in her line.

    Major, major schedule updating....something going on all hours on Friday...expect the same for Sat & Sun whenver the Official site announces it.

    Also added Nick Gillard to the non-actor celebs attending...probably should have added some of the people presenting the discussions, but they are listed in the schedule.

    Fun fun fun. :D

    I apologize if this was covered earlier & I missed it - with regards to the autographs:

    I've noticed that there are references to autograph 'coupons', which you then use at the celebrity tables to get the signatures. My question is: do we know exactly where we purchase the coupons upon arrival? I ask because I am going to be driving down from mid-Michigan Saturday morning (likely arrive 9-10 am) and so I'll probably end up way back in line from the get-go. I'd like to know where I will need to go to minimize lag time.

    Thanks :)

    My understanding of things is the C2Ventures is running the autographing completely on their own, so they will probably be selling coupons at the entrance to the C2V area/room. I don't think auto coupons will be sold anywhere else.

    From what I understand they won't even let you in the autograph area if you don't have a coupon, so I figure it's way off to one side, or in the back. Some people have the layout of the convention center, but it hasn't been posted online, as yet.

    The layout of the convention center floating around is of an empty layout...with all the stuff going on, that won't help anyone very much.

    I printed out the layout of the first & second floor of the center and I've been filling in spots as info is announced. It's beginning to fill in nicely. I know, I know...kinda anal retentive but I'm so excited. It helps me feel like I have some control.
