Do that many Star Wars and LEGO fans show up to Comic Con? Also, are there many vendors there that sell collectibles?

I was planning (again) on going this year. Last year I was going to just go and pay at the door, but it sold out so no door entries. I thought I'd play it smart and order tickets online to beat the crowd. I had money and went to buy the tickets, but they were already sold out for Saturday. This was back in March. When do you folks, that are going, start buying tickets online for the next show?

My imagination is going wild at the thought of all the possibilities of the Prince of Persia line... :lol:

Do you suppose they will be flesh, dark flesh or yellow? (probably/definitely not yellow)

Not very excited by the Tantive IV - seems to me just an overpriced, shoddy rehashing of 7665.
We're gonna need a lot of Mescaline for this...

Yes, and yes.


I buy my tickets in January, or immediately after the online registration opens, which ever one comes first.

I was on Star Wars.com and looking at the schedule for the Star Wars events and the mentioned that they will be having an event in which they will show off the new Star Wars LEGO Visual Dictionary. I'm not going this year, but out of curiosity, does this mean LEGOscum is going to be there?

There was an image of it, but it was removed at the request of LEGO. Rest assured as soon as we can post better images, we will.

If it Tantive IV ) has any minifigs, I bet Captain Antilles will be one. Here are my guesses on the minifigs.

Captain Antilles
Leia
2 Rebel Troopers
2 Stormtroopers
Vader
R2 D2 & C3PO ?
Just my opinion though.
