I'd be on board with that... or maybe Frank Oz could show up and do photo ops for charity or something

On SW level I am probably passing on all. I wanted Fisher, Prowse, Mayhew, Hamil, etc, and I'd like Ford, but beyond him I think Antony Daniels would likely be the last name from the series I'd bother with. I like SW but nowhere near the level Asian Dave and other completionists do.

After what Oz said about Star Wars fans in comparison to Muppet Fans last Friday ( Star Wars fans are a bit much knowing that they sell their stuff on ebay after they erase the name he would personalize) , I'm in agreement with Greg, it would never ever happen.

And just yesterday I passed on having Wednesday Addams sign my dvd because, and I quote, "Eh...When will I ever get the chance for Felix Silla?"

Surely from a :asiandave: perspective he made the right call. He cares about autographs, and logically speaking Oz was not going to sign (which he didn't as far as Star Wars items went), whereas Mothma was a guarantee regardless of the item in question.

Now if he wanted photo ops then you could argue he blew it by going for Mothma instead of Oz.

He does, but not here in Canada. Also, hopefully he lives for many more years to come, but he's also 80, so took that into account as well.

Wintercon does it again with a very very cool reunion! This time it's Blade Runner!

I myself have Joanna, and Young/Sanderson have done cons or can be found. Never thought I'd get a crack at Rutger though!
