    Chance to meet JB at a con: what would you do?

    I'm driving up to SuperMegaFest near Boston this week with my wife and son from Connecticut. Normally, my 501st garrison (CTG) really doesn't troop it -- we just hang out and maybe do other costumes and leave coverage to the New England Garrison. But Jeremy Bulloch is going to be there, and though I've been a Boba fan for a long time and a TDHer for a while, I've never had a chance to meet him in person. Would you:

    A) Tote the full on Boba Fett suit up there, suit up and try to get a pic with him in costume? Could probably do that on Day 2.
    B) Just take the helmet up there and see if you can get him to sign the inside and take a casual photo?

    Kind of a pain to bring the full tote up with all the other stuff in the car and I already have plans for Day 1. Just curious. I probably will cross paths again with him some other time....

    I would and have done both...in a sense . However, if it's easier for you and you don't mind waiting to get a shot with him while in your armor then just with option two. Get a photo with him after the signing as well.

    I've been lucky enough to get to talk to Jeremy several times. He's hands down the nicest SW actor I've met.

    I got him to sign my FPH helmet painted as ESB at Cactus Con in Phoenix in 2008. He looked it over quite closely and said, "Lovely."
    It was a good day.
    That FPH will never leave my collection.





    You should definitely get him to sign your helmet!

    Well...considering its provenance and that it is almost a duplicate of yours, I definitely will!

    At Celebration III in Indianapolis, my buddy and I were across the street from the convention center and saw him sitting at the bar with a friend. I had my waiter send him a beer on my tab. I think he got a Sam Adams. He stopped by our table to thank me as he was leaving. Very nice fellow.

    So Chris, how was the show? Did you get an autograph?

    The show itself is kinda "meh", but it's more of a social event than anything else for us. And JB was great! He adored my son and sat making him giggle with Daffy Duck voices for a good 5 minutes. Got him to sign the helmet the second day -- between he and his wife, you could not ask for nicer people! And he recognized the TDH shirt immediately and started talking...

    I'd fanboy so hard.... in my case, that just means grinning a lot and stuttering, haha.
