Pittsburgh Steel City Con - August 8th - 10th, 2014
« on: June 27, 2014, 09:07:35 PM »
Yet again for the 2nd time this year, another SCC is around the corner. Either though Billy Dee Williams is the only Starwars star going to be there, but guest list are always changing. Hard to see the future, always in motion it is!
But the troopers and I have gone the last few times, each time the costume contest is getting better and better. Too bad somebodies couldn't see my pictures from it and the show. Also I have seen more people show this past spring, which on Saturday that they had to turn people away or have them wait to get inside. The best crowd I have ever seen in the last 5 years. Lots and lots of different toys and collectables and more people dressed up in some sort of costume all 3 days there, great fans they are.

So who is all going to this great convention near the east coast, well sort of?

I'm gonna be there Saturday. Just remember the cash line is a lot shorter than the other lines.

Hey Jim, what's the benefit of joining the Pittsburgh Star Wars collecting club? I'm from PGH by the way, so I guess I qualify...

I signed up. I'm guessing a mass email will get sent out when there's a get together. But anyway, I'm going to go to the SCCon on Sunday. I'll be the guy wearing the Star Wars shirt.

Due to some weekend plans, I'm hitting the show early Saturday morning. So Mcor, if you want, send me a message when the place opens on Saturday. Not the best day for getting deals I know, but oh well. I'm not even sure what I can afford this year.

$12 is probably what you'd pay with shipping or depending what state you live in, taxes.

I'm not going to be able to make it tomorrow (Saturday), as I scored a free wooden backyard playset for my kid and I have a friend who's available to help me tomorrow. Gonna try like heck to make it Sunday morning. What time does it open? I'd like to be there at open.

There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

You all should see the lines this morning, some people been waiting since 830am. I thought yesterday was large, today's is huge compared with April show. It's going to be another busy day, with wall to wall fans.
Stay tune for some early pictures and late pictures for today.

Levar Burton and Billy Dee Williams had long lines of fans for this early afternoon signature. Billy Dee Williams Question & Answer was packed and standing room only too. I video tapped it too, hopefully you all might see the video at a later time.

Dean Cain is a cool guy at the question and answer show. Was able to talk to him afterward and then took pictures of him in the time machine. Also I have video of his show, you all might see that at a later time.   ;D
A lot more people this time around for a Saturday at SCC.
I can say there is more Starwars toys for sale too than past shows.
