    Fantastic!

    Yeah. OPX didn't want to do Celebration Europe because of the expense of flying their crew and resources over to England. Since they are no longer the exclusive photo/autograph representative for Lucasfilm, they had the option to opt-out.

    Star Wars Show just came out - no news there. Seems to be about Rogue One reveals and Freemaker Adventures

    They are not. ReedPop are doing this Con by themselves.

    9. How busy will it be and will I be out of my comfort zone?
    10. Do I need to dress up?
    11. What day is the Rogue One panel?
    12. Will Habro be there? And will I be able to ask questions and buy stuff?

    Photo Op for Mark Hamill is £145, is this too pricey for anyone or is this normal?

    Knowing Mark Hamill is there signing autographs is amazing but at £145, it's too rich for me. I love these films with all my heart but Mark is the only person I would want to meet from the films so I was rather disappointed it was so expensive. I might have gone crazy and booked at something like £100 but even that is so much money. I have a feeling the weekend is going cost an absolute fortune - I have saved up but I still think it's going to be tight!

    Awesome! Plenty of good stuff there! Surprised there's no Episide VIII panel but RO wasn't on the main stage last year either so still hope.

    They really are going to spread this out thought aren't they! Like a drip feed of info rather than a full release!

    Thought so! As soon as I saw it I was disappointed.

    Just seen the price of the Mark Hamill photo op. That's very very expensive.

    Photo Ops are seriously pricey. Very tempted by a Carrie Fisher one but... That would be a huge percentage of my overall budget.

    Yeah that's pricey. Looking online Mark's photo last year was $100 so taking exchange rate into account they've basically doubled the price.

    I've tried and also tried to reset but haven't had an email yet.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one disappointed at the photo price. If they've doubled it then that's harsh.
    £100 was my limit tbh.

    Agreed, anymore than £100 just seems absolutely extortionate.

    If Photo-Ops cost, for example, £80 or £145, how much will an autograph cost? I'm worrying now! Ha

    I guess Mark will have an easy time of it, then!

    Well we might be able to find out, if the site would let any of us log-in! I'm still hovering over a Carrie Fisher op, but feel like my missus wouldn't be best pleased

    I'm still waiting on a password reset email.

    Gonna take a few days to consider the photo op prices. Hopefully they won't have sold out by then.
