Looks like I am going too. Bring the clan with me again.  :) But why August? Its hot. Why not late June???
Prepare the Battle Station for some large battles.  >:D

I'm really torn because I know setting up a Battle Station will sacrifice sooo much time for me personally.  IF it's even approved, but you can bet it's being discussed.

August was muggggggy. But I'm sure I'll be heading out and may bring the clan this time around.

You know2 2012 seems so far away.To me its a little to early to make plans.I didn't have any trouble with the Autographs last year.I am curious as to what the guest list will look like.I don't know if they can top last year.

I have my room booked, just in case. But its really too far away for me to say for sure. Of course I WANT to be there.... it depends on money and Nerf's health
Title: Re: Who's Going?
Post by: scalperhunter1 on June 04, 2011, 05:25:45 PM
My room is booked. This time I'm staying across the street from the convention center. Last time I was a mile away and that was a pain in the ass. Now if I need a break I can go back to my room and rest like I did at CIII. You never know when lady Boba Fett may need to study how to escape from a Sarlac.

Take it from someone who was tied down to a table 90% of the time... I missed so much I really wanted to see. I didn't get to any panels, I only saw one show and barely got to talk to anyone I wanted to.

Yet, TJA will probably still have a table... I am just a sadist

It seems like it's just too soon, and have they even said why it's going to be a whole year early?   Celebration needs to be special, it's not a once a year thing, and I hope Reed will continue to step up.  IV wasn't as good as V but none were as good as III, if that makes any sense.  I'm hoping this one will be the best yet, but we'll see!

You hit the nail on the head Spice. CIII was so much better than CV but then III was my first. I too hope Reed has evolved since CV. The theme for this one may be a determining factor as to how exciting it will be. It's gonna be fun to see how this progresses. Last year Reed put out a questionaire after CV asking for input to make the next one better. I hope they took all of the suggestions to heart.

I agree C6 is over 1 yr away & I can't plan 1 wk ahead much less a yr.
Orlando is close enough to drive, I don't fly. If I goto a Con, I want cash & TSA is to nosy?

Post by: Jedimom on August 20, 2011, 01:26:31 PM
Could this be the one? It sounds like it has undergone a name change adn probably an ownership change as well

I see the Jedi VIP packages are available but I can't see spending that kind of money just to sit down.  Unless it gives you open bar at the Hoth Ice bar, COUNT me out!  ;D :D :o   AHHHH  I've just rekindled a memory that makes me feel like I really want to go!  8)

I can't wait to see all of you down here it's really exciting for me for a few reasons, 1) it's my 1st Celebration event that I'm going to, 2nd I'll be able to meet all of you guys & I'm happy to say that I'm apart of you guys & the staff so it's such a huge honor to be amongst all of you :)  3rd I'll be meeting tons of Youtubers who know me as well as I know them & lastly i'll hopefully get LOTS of autographs depending the budget from here to there. I have a seperate back account just for CVI so money is stacking up in there :) it'll definitely be an exciting event.

I plan to go only if there are some big names in the autograph hall

I've seen just about everyone who regularly does all the big and small shows

I would love to see either Harrison, Ian McEmperor, Liam, Ewan, Natalie, Hayden

if one of them shows up I will go
if the list is the same as last time, I will sit this one out

I can't afford the trip just to get a few more noname ewoks or ugnaughts
last time all of the exclusive merch was online within a few days, so why fly when you can have it sent right to you

my flight lands that Thursday afternoon, but we're going straight to Disney

I got my Ian McEmperor autograph tix shortly after they went up for sale and I will be proud to have him in my autograph collection

we are leaving about 2pm on Sunday so I'm not sure if we can even make it to the convention center for the last day

well I guess 2 days of Celebration and a 1/2 day at Disney will have to suffice

I just got Ian McDiarmid autograph ticket about 2 nights ago now I'm saving up and working long hrs at work so I can get Mark Hamill's autograph,Kenny Bakers (hopefully),Tem Morrison's and then a couple 20 dollar ones like the beautiful Amy Allen (Aayla Secura) is a freakin hot Jedi!!

For a long considerable thought this past week, I regret I have to cancel my trip to CVI. No fun in the sun.  :'(  My troopers understand so we will wait for CVII in 2 years. Have a few beers for me.  :beer:

Dude sorry to hear that, I hope that for whatever reason you can't make it you can have something beneficial out of the situation. If there's anything I can help you with feel free to ask. If there's something that you want from CVI and I have spare cash I'll do my best to help. :)
