With the number we do have coming out it will be a blast, and I am sorry you feel there are no plans being made. JediXXL pointed out last page that teh group shots happen at the same time usually so when the times for the 501st photo are given we can plan to have them at the same time, just after or just before.


Confused Why does it have to be the same time? Why can we gather differently from the 501st at a different time?

You'll get a larger group shot if you don't plan it at the same time.

MANY are dual membership RL/501st. 6 From Rochester alone. If forced to choose, well since 501st is getting me in for free then 501st it'll be. I'm fairly sure the others feel the same.


Or how about a compromise lets say an hour before the 501st one so we have time to change for the shoot and or change back for the 501st photo for those of us who will need to? wink2

I doubt 1 hour is enough... getting the pictures taken probably takes that long... wink2 ... and getting in to 501st gear generally takes a bit of time (some more then others)... Personally I'd think after the 501st is best... or WAY before...

It'd be best to plan it on the Friday (not take it on the friday)... This way we all get the schedule in our hands... it can be planned more clearly and get the most people out as possible... The Time and Place can be posted for everyone to come and see at the 501st Table (since the RL does not have a table)...

I've not been to a con yet where RL & 501st pictures take place at the same time. Usually the groups work together to make sure they are on different days to accomodate costume changes needed for those with dual memberships. To my knowledge, the 501st photo is Saturday evening around 5:30pm-ish.

I don't care about time, BUT I'd REALLY like to do photos on Saturday as that is the only day I could get off work to come.
I don't get to many cons so I am really looking forward to meeting some of you! I just wish I had know we were needing someone to organize things, I guess I just assumed from the first post that it was being done already. BUT keep me in mind for next year!

The best times I'm seeing on Saturday to have a RL photo (at least on my schedule) are:

3:15pm-ish
That would be right after the David Prowse/Jake Lloyd talk which is from 2pm-3pm. Then dual members would have to make a quick change to make it in time for the 501st photo.

or
11am-ish
We'd need to get the photo finished before 11:45am so that anyone working/participating in the SW Kid's Hour at 12pm can still get to that on time.

Yeah, I'm good like that. Cool

Seriously, we're in your neighborhood Justin...whatever makes life less complicated for your guys is fine with us.

That might work. Since 501st has a dressing room closer to the con...all you guys who want to be in the 501st pic can pull a "Clark Kent" and get changed into RL gear and meet us there. Hopefully, we can have everyone lined up and then just fill in the remaining people from the 501st/RL change over. Should help us be able to accomodate everyone's desire to be in both pics. :idea:

"Of course that's just my opinion...I could be wrong"

That's a great idea, the Ohio contingent is scheduled to arrive sometime Friday (we're staying at InterContinental) so if anyone wants to meetup Friday night...look us up at the front desk. Otherwise, we'll check in at the 501st table.

Don't worry guys, we'll get a group shot in somehow. They usually just fall together when everyone is around.

At least I know we'll have one of the roving band of X-wing pilots. wink2

If you're wearing white plastic at SFX, I have a dart with your name on it!

I realize I am not Justin... but... Wow... what a HUGE lineup! I'm not sure there would have been enough space in the room!! Sadly, because of the area, sound did not travel well... but it still was quite the success I'd say!...

I'll admit... I was not expecting much from the weekend... for what ever reason I'd been quite down lately... but it was SO much better then I expected... I have a one thing I missed that I would have LOVED to be a part of... The Rebel Photo... I dressed as Han Solo for Friday and Sunday... but Armour all Saturday... once in Armour, you really don't want to get out, then back in again... nothing worse then getting back into cold wet tights and smelly plastic!

Thanks to everyone from Canadian Base who made us Ohio RLers feel welcome!


I really wanted to meet Justin (good times), and thanks to Randy "avalanche" for trading me one of the Canadian Base patches for one of my OG challenge coins.

Danel Logan (boy had a "rough" time Sunday morning Laughing ) and Temuera Morrison were fun as always, but Jake Lloyd was the one that surprised me most. I met him at C3 (I was there when he nearly got trampled by a mob of "fans" in the C3 Lounge and they had to pull him out of there (Beatles-style)...what an introduction. Rolling Eyes So it didn't surprise me when rumors got around that he'd become a bit "nervous" us...only the kid was nice and friendly to us (we stopped by twice for autographs and pictures) just like he was at C3. Good for him!


Trisha Helfer ("Six" from BSG)... Shocked marry me! :idea:

While I missed the "official" Rebel group photo, there were several moments during the convention where there was alot-O-Orange in the room!

Gil - Welcome to the 501st! wink2


Krash (aka: the orange that made it into the 501st group picture :twisted: )

...I was directing traffic away, so I was being helpful; even if I told one guest that this is what us Rebel Scum call "Rebel Alliance Bowling Night" Cool

Should have all the rest of our group's pictures posted soon...there's ALOT of them!

Great event! Thanks to everyone who made the trip out from Ohio and out further!
Nice seeing Kim, Kieron, Krash, Jay, Spooner and Emily again!

Everyone from Canada, it's always a pleasure! I'll troop with you guys anytime!

Caption for this picture:

"I got them all together, can I borrow a thermal detonator from someone?"



Waiting for the upload, but more pictures are coming...
