Dallas Fan Expo 2017 Anyone else going? Mark Hamill.....

Post by StarWarsGeek1977 on Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:44 am

Hey, it was announced that Mark will be making a rare appearance at Fan Expo Dallas from March 31- April 2... I'm going to continue my mission to get photo ops and autographs from the original cast... I know Mark will be expensive, but you can't put a price on a memory.... Photo ops don't go on sale for about a month.. I will post here once i have purchased one.. Is anyone else planning on attending?

Hopefully you will be able to get his autograph, Matt. cheers

I would imagine that Mark will be heading to Orlando right after that, for C8.

I got him to sign a reprint ESB poster last year, $195 CAD at FanExpo in Toronto. Not cheap but I'm pretty happy with it though. The annoying thing is that I had to put my brother in line for me cuz I was shooting at the event lol he got to meet Mark on my dime.

Still worth it for the poster IMO, got Billy D. on there too.

Photo op would be pretty good too, it may be expensive but its a pretty short list of people who (I assume) you'd pay that much for a photo with.

Wow Chris I can't believe how much he's charging these days! Still I guess his sig is pretty special.

I paid 30 euros for Julian Glover's sig (General Veers) last weekend in Brussels. Really nice guy.

I bit the bullet yesterday morning and bought the Gold Jedi package for Mark.. It was $$$$$$$$$$$$$, but I get to a photo op and Friday night at a special limited event... I also get first seating to his Star Wars panel on Friday night...I know it was very expensive, but it will prob be be my only shot at meeting him...I been telling everyone that I'm going to take my lightsaber hilt and reinact the final scene of The Force awakens... I felt like a kid again after I purchased the package yesterday..... You can't put a price on a memory.....

I finally met Mark Hamill Friday night...

Post by StarWarsGeek1977 on Sun Apr 02, 2017 11:55 pm

Hey guys, it took me 30 + years, but I finally got to meet Mark Hamill last Friday... I got an awesome photo op, autograph, and got a front row seat to his panel....He was beyond nice....It was pretty quick, but I managed to talk to him for a couple of minutes, and snuck my lightsaber hilt to the phto op...Very few things will make you feel like a 5yr old again, but meeting luke Skywalker will do the trick...I was fine when I met him, but caught myself telling the volunteer and photographer " that's Luke Skywalker" right when i entered the room....I also met Alan Tudyk and got his K-2SO pic signed.....We got to talk for a good 4 minutes before they had to move on....Here are the pics of my photo op, autographs, and a few panel pics....

Nice work Matt! Love the photo!

Totally agree, when I met Mark Hamill I almost pissed myself I was so excited. And I generally am not too bothered when I see celebrities...
