Chris, that's a fantastic amount of swag. cheers

Looks like you met up with Simon and got the Boba Fett Oldschool stick-on, and met up with the boys from "The Vintage Rebellion". I also see some of Javi's swag as well. clapping

Thanks Clint,
Yeah I met up with a lot of guys from SWFUK, Dave Tree, Jason Smith, Simon. Also Grant, Jez, Rich and all the guys from the vintage rebellion podcast.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Steve Sansweet, Brian Angel, Paul Armoury, Joe O' Brien, Gus Lopez, Kevin Lentz, Krille Soderland, Henrik Wulff Rasmussen and Mattias Rendahl, Stephane Faucourt, to name but a few.
As you know Javier could not make it due to ill health, but Jose Arosa, who was also involved in producing the PBP book with Javi, was in attendance and was promoting the book with lots of swag Very Happy
So I had an opportunity to look through the book, and its awesome!! All of Javi's hard work has really paid off.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys Very Happy

It was my first celebration and I had an absolute blast yay
The biggest highlights for me had to be meeting up with Christian and Alex again, as well as other fellow collectors from around the globe.
Collectors like Henrik, not only did he host one of the collectors panels, but he also sponsored one of the collector panel coins, the imperial shuttle coin cheers clapping bowwing

chris ......... sweet poch shirt

Thanks Bill, my wife had it made for me, so I thought It would be pretty unique, and subtle enough that only fellow collectors would spot it and understand Very Happy
In fact I only met one other guy wearing a Poch logo T shirt and that was Jose M Arosa, who was there promoting the Poch/PBP book produced by him and Javier Ruilopez.

I too got a lot of nice swag at CE3, but unfortunately I did not get the first two postcards from Vintage Rebellion (Bounty Hunters and Royal Guard ones), if you have more of these, I would like to buy those two.  Smile

My collection of swag from CE3.

Also bought Shane Turgeons newest book. Not that I'm much into tattoos, but like to support my friends, by buying their books.

As I already posted in my thread about foreign variations, I bought the Lili-Ledy brown eyes/nose Teebo from Luis Galvez at the room sales.

Yeah I got those two cards, but not the IG-88 or TFP cards. Sadly I only got one of each, but if you want them Henrik, I will gladly part with them, so that you have the complete set  Smile
Awesome swag by the way cheers clapping clapping
The Star destroyer coin display looks great, and I love that you have the original coin mould!! Is that one from this year's Celebration, of the Imperial shuttle?

Sounds great Chris. I have something to trade for them, won't say what it is yet, but it's not a vintage variation. Smile

And yes, the mold is for the Imperial Shuttle coin. Smile

Henrik (or Chris), who was giving away the pin with Star Wars in the Def Leppard font?

I saw it posted somewhere else once, and I would KILL for one. A marriage of two of my all time fave things in the entire world.

I think Alex may of had one of those Def Leopard/star wars mash up pins. I think there was a slayer and Metallica font pins too. I'm pretty sure it's one of the Swfukers.

Unfortunately I don't remember, who gave med the Def Leppard themed badge, there was also two Iron Madine trooper badges (tribute to Iron Maiden and General Madine of Cause), which can be seen next to the Def Leppard one on my photo.

Bugger. Thanks guys.

Maybe I'll ask over there. Hopefully someone over there is willing to sell me one.

The other fonts are cool too, but one look at my avatar and you can see which one holds special meaning to me. Smile
