    I can't go Friday or Saturday. I am tempted to try to get out there later on Sunday but can't say for sure yet. Will any other CF'ers be there on Sunday?

    Put me down for the dinner then also...I am a completist...I have literally 99% of all Star Wars books, comics and Role playing information and am willing to pay through the nose for the last 1%.

    I tried to buy the Wizard World VIP pass but they are sold out. I managed to snag a Presendential Pass. Did anyone else get this or the VIP pass??

    Darth Plastic, sorry that I missed your question, we posted at the same time! Weird. Giodana's is pretty close, and part of the reason that we want WW attendees to meet at the info booth will be so we can try to give everyone a ride over. We do have a lot of out of towners this year, which is Awesome. So I guess this has also become an appeal to those that will have wheels. Note to self, make sure back seat is clean for riders.
    Also, for those that want to hang out with us for dinner only, the Blue Line Rosemont stop is only a skip hop and a jump away.

    Passes, not me. I already spent to much money at Botcon last weekend, no extra.

    I keep on forgetting to say. Graham Crackers Comics Wheaton will be having a signing Thursday night. The crew from MV Studios will be there. Don't sound familiar? They produce the He-Man comic. That is cool enough, but one of the guys there is the writer of Invincible, one of my fav comics. It's an awesome little book.
    It starts at 6pm, I don't know how late it'll last. Wheaton is a good trip from the airport, but anyone arriving in the afternoon might catch it.

    I knew Daniel Logan and someone yesterday told me Prowse had cancelled but I'm surprised by Jeremy Bulloch not being there. There are going to be a lot of disappointed people who wanted to get a Silver Fett signed.

    Oh well there will be plenty of opportunities for his sig at other cons. :D

    Good luck w/ Sean Astin. GenCon was friggin' nuts for him...at least a couple hour wait and then some people still didn't get an autograph or even a photo. :(

    We got in line 2 hours early for Sean via the Decipher booth. I ended up going into the pay line for Sean's autograph after being passed the cut-off for Gimli's line (and being there a half-hour early).

    I know that the lines at CII were immense for getting autographs...

    I don't think I have posted since CII, wow I have been busy. I am really dissapointed about daniel Logan, I was looking forward to getting his autograph.

    AS far as General Madine being listed one day and then pulled fromt he guest list that is weird. Please check out the link below, there is a card show on the south side and it looks like he is scheduled to appear and sign, also Eric Walker from the Ewoks movie. I found out about this at the last Kane County toy show, they were handing out flyers to promote it. Oh, I am in no way affiliated with the show I just wanted to pass along the 411 if anyone else was interested in going. It is the middle of September.
