I'll just keep adding my pictures to this post over the next couple of days.

Waiting in line, to get into the building.  Christian & I where probably only 1/2 - 3/4 hr in line at this point.  Still at least another 1 1/2 hrs to go, before getting in.

The after Room Sales party on the patio.  Christian & I finally left at 3 am & the party was still going strong.
The guy with Christian is Jorge, one of our newest members from Mexico, that makes some great custom figures.

My gad, carded last 17 on the floor. That place really was the holy of holies.

I haven't been able or find anything from the collecting track panels on YouTube but I'm sure it will eventually get out there.

Great pictures bowwing

So, in the Collectors Panel: Star Wars at the Movies - Vintage theatrical Advertising and Collectible Ephemera, Skye was hiding in the crowd and was heckling the presenters Steve D, Ron S. & Todd C.
Finally he made his way to the stage, but stayed in character.  This was the funniest panel I've ever seen.  I've added a small video clip as well.

Great photos Clint!

I'll post some up in the next couple of days.

Not sure if you guys can see, but Javi is in a few of the photos as well. Was great meeting him in person. He's a really modest and genuine guy.

James, I new you'd like those.  I was debating whether to post them directly in that thread.

Christian has some really good photo's as well.  He was taking more pictures that me.  So I'm looking forward to seeing more of them.  It was a real pleasure to meet Javi in person and all our fellow collectors that made the trip.

Headman and that bald slave Leia somehow impress me far more than an intricate custom Mandelorian lol such great shots.

I haven't found a single video from the collecting track panels on YouTube. I'm sure the chive cast will post the ones that Steve & Skye were directly involved in, but it's a shame they weren't officially streamed.

Tommy Garvey just dropped a gang of panels form Orlando and London on YouTube lol too much at once on a work night. I'll have to wait till later next week to clear all the good ones lol here's a few:







He has a bunch more on his channel but that's my initial hit list lol

I've been though a few, the trip through vintage factories was pretty amazing. I'm going to skip the one "Star Wars at the movies" that Skye and Steve are on because I've got a hunch that it will be released with much better audio on their podcast lol I wish someone would have recorded these with a patch into the sound board lol If I ever go I will step the game up. That said, much respect to Mr. Garvey, if not for him, these would be lost in time and space lol

After Christian said that was Skye, I was trying to get a picture of him in disguise, but he wouldn't sit still. Razz

Awesome! Skye's costumed escapades were well documented in the latest chive cast, and a story from the archive party which almost defies belief rofl

I've watched most of the collecting track panels at this point, I have no right to complain lol as I should have gone myself but jeeez is the audio rough on most of those.

I might not notice as much if I didn't patch into event/conference sound boards atleast once a month including every day this week lol

But yeah, no one else posted all the good panels so all the respect and 1UP's to be he honourable Tommy Garvey bowwing
