    Oh! Hey! I remeber running into you! Yep, I was hoping you could make it last year.

    I can't wait for the Kevin Smith talk. Reminder for everyone, Kevin Smith's talk WILL require a ticket, it's mucho popular. No idea where the tickets will be picked up but they will be required, much like Celebration events at Indy.

    Dinner, Giordano's! Information Booth! Everyone Welcome. Write it down backwards on your forhead so you can read it in the mirror.

    Aaaaaaaaahhhh! Everyone knows I love the Ewoks, right?

    Members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club are invited to register for an exclusive breakfast with actor Warwick Davis. The breakfast will take place during Wizard World Chicago, on Saturday morning August 9 at the Hyatt Regency O?Hare.

    YES!

    There is no charge for the tickets. It's just that the Grand Ballroom sits xx amount of people, and xxxxxxxxxxxxx what to see Kevin Smith. There will be a certain booth where the tickets can be picked up, but like I said before, no idea where this will be. So if you want to see Kevn Smith, be aware that you have to find this ticket booth first.

    That ticket idea was a good one. I remember the near riot they had when people tried cutting in line to see the Saturday Attack of the Clones preview two years ago.

    And the last time Smith was there people were waiting to get in to his panel 2 hours early.

    Got my weekly Hyperspace "what's new"...and they had a link to the Warwick Davis Breakfast....I signed up....now let's see if I have beat the clock and will get a ticket....

    Hopefully we will get tickets Carrie....

    fingers crossed!

    and yes...the Silver Fetts are on e-bay in mass numbers.....If I get the ticket to the breakfast...they are supposed to give you a Silver Boba Fett....and I will be buying my other two....so, if I get the Breakfast with Warwick Davis ticket...there will be a Silver Boba for one of the Black Suns....

    They've just added:

    David Prowse (Darth Vader)
    Leeanna Walsman (Zam Wessel)
    Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett)


    Dermot Crowley (General Madine) HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE GUEST LIST.

    Bummed about Mr. Crowley - he was on my list of definite autographs.

    My revised list of must-haves: Daniel Logan, Leanna Walsman, and Warwick Davis.

    I'm not going to say this is 100% definite but Daniel Logan told me he would NOT be attending Wizard World at the end of GenCon.

    Let's talk WIZARD WORLD DINNER @ Giordono's on Saturday.

    Who's down with that? We need to start generating numbers so we can reserve spots.


    EDIT::: OH, and I don't mean generate RANDOM numbers like in the "How Many People Post Here" thread.

    Even though I most likely won't be there, I can assure you that 32 is not old!

    Yeah, I think you are going to be pretty safe.

    I'm 30 and I'm a long, long way from being the oldest person there.

    Hey, General Kenobi, did you get that new adhesive strip installed in your bath? I'd hate to hear that you slipped and broke your hip or something. Oh, I also thought I'd bring the Ensure to the BBQ this weekend. I remember how much you love that stuff.

    Sounds great. What are most of you into in relation to Star Wars.

    What I mean is, does everyone just like the movies, anyone read the books or comics???

    Hello,

    I am from the Louisville Fan Force, a couple of us are going to be up at Wizard World. This one is my first one. I would like to meet a few people from the other fan forces around the country. Is the restuarant in walking distance from the Convention Center. I am asking because I will be flying in.

    Hope to see a few of you all there!

    Checked out Wizard's site today (wizarduniverse) and they have put up the listing of Dealers, Small Press and Artist Alley. While I haven't had time to check the list properly, I checked real quick for one name, Jan Duursema. For those that like SW comics, she has been the artist on many Quinlin Vos storylines and the Ep II artist. She's been to WW in the past and is way nice. If I spot anyone else cool, I'll let you guys know.
