    Nooooooooooooo... too far away!!!!

    I was really hoping for a closer venue, and the time of year makes it a toss up for me... either FanExpo in Toronto, or C5. Time to start saving I guess.

    Logo is also ironic in that they tout the 20 year anniversary of ESB with a logo featuring the ROTJ Fett.

    But I guess it takes a Fett head to notice that.

    Yeah, it's gonna be a pick-and-choose this year for some people this year.

    Other than that I'm excited! Art, wait till you see the fan group application. I hope you don't have an outstanding FBI record. =P

    Re: C5 in Orlando!!!! confirmed!

    I wish that I could bring my wife and kids as well Arturo, but my wife is pretty sure that her side of the family is planning to bring her and the kids out west some time this summer to visit... so I'll more than likely be going to C5 solo.

    I'm hoping that I can afford to bring my Jango, but as it sits right now, my tub is illegal as it's 1" or 2" square too big! I can onmly afford to go to one major con/event next year, and C5 fits the bill. I'd also love to finally meet the lot of you in person.

    Is shipping your gear out of the question?

    Re: C5 in Orlando!!!! confirmed!

    I've heard horror stories of shipping being as much as or more than airfare... I seem to recall hearing tales of shipping fees upwards towards $300 to $500 dollars on over-sized tubs!

    If I were to drive it, it would take me 2 to 3 days of all out driving to get to Orlando from Ottawa... airfare would be far cheaper considering todays gas prices.

    I'll just have to research the different airlines, and find out what the current limitations are for over-sized baggage. Hope they don't charge me into bankruptcy.

    Well, going and coming from SDCC costs me $400 extra just to transport my gear on the plane. So I would say depending on how big your tub is, and how much weight you have in it, then your going to pay around $200-$400 just for that part of the trip.

    How much do tickets usually cost for this?

    I shipped my costume the day before my arrival at Dragon Con in 2006. I sent it FED-Ex priority through my corporate account, it was about $400. I shipped back 5-Day Ground, at around $150. I personally prefer shipping than doing the TSA thing. I flew with my Bacara costume to Adcon for Jon and Rose's wedding in 2007 and I was charged a total of $350 and those TSA folks went through my entire bin, and dishelved the packing. I ended-up with a few busted parts.

    I will be there from Monday the 9th, leaving Monday the 16th. I like to get settled in, no rushing or stress, and check out Disney World also!

    About bloody time they made a decision!

    At this point I don't know if I'm going solo or with the family... finances are really tight right now - But I will be there! DC and SDCC were out of the picture anyway, I was hoping and praying they would make a decision on this, because CV was all I could afford this year.
