It was a pleasure to meet Stef and Gorneesh.... anyone else from TIG?  Man, I met so many people it started to blur into one at times.  Truly wonderful time.

We're you there as an individual or did the podcast get some representation there?  I heard you guys may have had some swag also (but haven't seen any pics).  

Sat I manned the podcast table for most of the day. Sunday Stu, Pete and I had the pleasure of hosting a podcast stage with Gus Lopez. The rest of the time I was solo. It was a great time.

Here is our swag....

A poster



6 postcards













and 5 badges

Thanks for sharing the pics Jimmy and Rich.

Rich - the Vintage Rebellion Podcast swag is really cool.
Love all the artwork - and the Ewoks with blasters badges rocks Razz

Cool DST-1 box design by Sublevel Studios too.

On the day the queues weren't that bad to be fair...



However upon entering Tiggy didn't like the look of this sign Sad

As with previous Celebrations this years "Helmet Project" was based on the Biker Scout, all these where auctioned off during the event on ebay for charity.

I'd heard rumors that AJ liked the hairy, and I wasn't going to argue with Chewie!

Was there any vintage, oh yes there was. He's a few pics of David Tree aka "The Guy That Runs The Further From" events in the UK.

The next pic is just staggering, what an opportunist flogging those pieces of shite for £1 a pop!  affraid
A fitting place to store them in a plastic coffin?

Nice pics. So many things to say:

Helmets all look awesome and that one of the ship is funny

Very neat to see those droids. Did most of them work and have electronics?

What is the first pic of everyone lying down and sitting? a waiting line to get in or what.

As a non carded collector and someone who knows next to nothing of trilogos what is the large frame of trilogo cardbacks about? are those rarer cardbacks or something?

All of those weapons were reproduction? Assuming there are no rules against that sort of thing there then?

How many times did the lady ewok and Chewbacca have to point out the cosplay is not consent sign to you? lol!

I see you have some swag too, what all badges did you manage to snag?

Not knowing how these type of things are, was it crowded or not really that bad?
