    It says that on the front. The little inset says Tee Back and has about 3 lines of text. Are you sure it repeats CIII again?

    I'm sorry, I think we were all looking at the hooded sweater. :p

    the shirt on pg 1 says "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villiany"

    Thanks. For some reason I can't get it clear enough to read the print in that section although I'm not having problems with any of the others.

    EDIT: I see SebX started a new topic. Sorry for the duplicate post!

    From the Homing Beacon newsletter:

    FANS SHARE THE SPOTLIGHT AT CELEBRATION III
    Celebration III is just around the corner. The Star Wars party of a
    lifetime is coming to Indianapolis, Indiana on April 21 through April
    24, 2005 for four days of star-packed excitement and Force-filled fun.
    Just announced, Star Wars creator George Lucas himself will be in
    attendance. See this story here for more details:

    http://www.starwars.com/community/news/2005/04/news20050405c.html

    The Fan Fair Exhibit Hall at Celebration III will be the place to be
    each day for events, demonstrations, entertainment, and for a good
    dose of Star Wars fun served straight up. Star Wars fans from all
    over the world will gather to share their best, meet new people, and
    get ready for Revenge of the Sith. The Fan Fair Hall (Hall C) is huge,
    so fans attending Celebration III should be sure to set aside a good
    block of time to see what everyone there has to offer.

    Death Star Diorama Builders:
    After doing an amazing job organizing the Diorama Builders' Room during
    Celebration II, Frank D'Iorio (http://www.niubniubsuniverse.com) is
    back for Celebration III and will set up shop in the Fan Fair Exhibit
    Hall. Beginning and expert builders alike can come to the Diorama
    Building area and get involved in the action, making their own portions
    of the Emperor's dreaded Death Star. D'Iorio and his team of builders
    supply the know-how, instructions, and all the materials necessary,
    and fans can supply just a little elbow grease. On Sunday builders can
    take their piece of the Death Star home with them. D'Iorio also will
    have special give-aways each day for builders, too.

    Star Wars Cars:
    An entire squadron -- Road Squadron that is -- will dock at Celebration
    III in the Fan Fair Hall. In addition to the customized Star Wars cars
    that will be driven to Indianapolis from all over the United States,
    it's rumored that a Star Wars bus will come from San Diego. Road
    Squadron members will be in the Hall to answer questions about the
    methods -- sometimes surprisingly simple -- that they use to get their
    cars to look as cool as they do.

    Tattoo Art Show and Star Wars Tattoo Show:
    Ink artists have known it for years -- there's a lot of amazing Star
    Wars tattoo art out there. Shane Turgeon, a tattoo aficionado and Star
    Wars fan, has gathered a most impressive collection of Star Wars tattoo
    art that will displayed throughout the weekend. Not only will the art
    be on display, but there will be a live Tattoo Show and Competition
    scheduled for Sunday, April 24. Those with Star Wars tattoos that they
    are proud of, in places that can be shown to the rest of the world,
    should stop by Turgeon's tattoo display area in the Fan Fair Hall and
    sign up for the show!

    Life-Sized Origami:
    Each day of the show Chris Alexander and a team of folders -- some of
    them pulled from the audience -- will fold one BIG Star Wars origami.
    Picture a life-sized Naboo starfighter. A Jedi starfighter. How about
    a life-sized Jabba the Hutt? Alexander plans to hold a silent auction
    for the origami pieces, with all proceeds going to the Koret Family
    House charity. Please stop by the origami area in the Fan Fair Hall
    for more details. Life-sized Origami Schedule: Thursday 5:30 - 6:30pm
    Naboo Starfighter; Friday 2:30 - 3:30pm Jedi Starfighter; Saturday
    2:30 - 3:30pm Jabba the Hutt; Sunday 2:30 - 3:30pm Anakin's Starfighter

    Droidyard 500:
    Every day of Celebration III the race is on in the Fan Fair Exhibit
    Hall. What will move faster than a speeding rancor over the weekend?
    Droids! The R2-D2 Builders will put their remote-controlled droids
    through their paces in heats that take place each day. The Droidyard
    500 Championship Finals are scheduled for Sunday. Races take place
    right in the center of the Hall. Droidyard 500 Schedule: Thursday
    6:30 - 7:30pm; Friday 1 - 2pm; Saturday 1 - 2pm; Sunday 1 - 2pm
    Droidyard 500 Championship Finals!

    I'm a little worried!!

    No need to worry. Occasionally I just can't get folks to let me be. They actually expect me to work for my salary! Imagine that. They just don't understand that my focus is elsewhere. In other words, minor crisis. :)

    Thanks for the update. My favorite exhibit at C2 was the archive room. I'm really looking forward to this one.

    As an aspiring artist I was glad to hear the news about Tsuneo Sanada and the EpIII concept artists behind "SW: Visionaries" artbook all available for signing at the starwarsshop.com booth. As if the Art Show wasn't already going to be cool :)

    I just saw a headline on the OS that says-"Virtual Celebration 3. Can't be there? Be here!"


    That pretty much confirms they'll have the webcam set up. :)

    bCould it be????????


    At least 25,000 "Star Wars" fans are expected, along with about 50 film-related guests including Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader) and Jake Lloyd, who played the child Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace."

    I asked this in another area but I'm wondering where this news about Hayden came from. I'm only asking because according to an article in the USA Today about a week ago it said he left for Italy to start work on a new film. It would be great if he does show but I can't see him coming if he is just starting to work on a new film.

    For those buying autograph coupons in advance, official pix added this text to their website recently. It allows you to pick up your coupons Wednesday during pre-registration.

    ----------

    Note: We have received permission from Gen Con to allow pickup of advanced coupon purchases on Wednesday at registration starting at 2:00 PM and until about 6:00 PM, possibly later. We'll have all of them, so drop by if you can. Doing so will save you line-time Thursday morning.


    -----------

    You'll find this test on the page where you make advanced purchases.

    Got a confirmation email from the costume contest coordinator today. It has this info in it:

    A great photo opportunity is available in the Fan Fair Hall (Hall C) during all convention hours, where you?ll find enormous photo backdrops and a full-scale X-Wing fighter.

    If it's the same X-Wing from C1 in Denver all the promotional tours, it's actually about 3/4 to 2/3 scale. Just a little shy of actual size. I hope it's one from the OT though.

    Maybe this is a NEW full scale one. I doubt it but you can always hope. It would rock if they had something from the new movie. I know they had a jedi starfighter at CII, and they had a Naboo starfighter at the childrens museum during CII as well.
