Hi guys and gals. This will be my first celebration and I'm pretty stoked. Maybe someone can answer this for me for those that have been to a celebration before. How far in advance should I line up for The Last Jedi panel? what is the process for ensuring a seat? Thanks in advance!
All I remember is that the high interest events sell out very fast. The lines to meet the legacy characters like mark and Carrie were over 2 hours and the special events always maxed out.
Thanks for the reply. I was planning to leave early Friday but by that point I fear it might even be too late. I really only had two goals; meet the OT actors for autographs and be in the LJ panel. Looks like I might have to leave Thursday night!

I forget the price for the OT lines. I seem to recall mark and Carrie were around $250 or so to stand in line. You could even see them as they were inside a huge curtain cubicle. There's plenty of chance to meet actors like Peter Mayhew, Jeremy Bullock, mon mothma, etc. those lines were short and they were in plain site.
Don't miss the R2 races if they have them again. They were kind of fun.
So far I have purchased tix for Anthony Daniels, Peter Mathew, and Jeremy Bulloch. I'll probably purchase Billy Dee Williams as well. So far, no Mark Hamill on the Star Wars Authentics site. I have an original, vintage ESB 'B' poster Topps said they would authenticate on-site. This will probably be one of the few opportunities I have to get these signatures. I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks again for the info.
Rogue Five: Hi Bentley! Where y'all been?

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
