PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE SAME DAY AS THE LEGO BOOK RELEASE EVENT We actually had more members sign up for the Lego book release than we had positions open, so maybe some of you can switch to this event since the Lego book release only wants ONE Rebel Legion character per location?

Also note - if the 501st fails to get volunteers for a particular location then there is a chance the location's event may be called off.

WHAT: Pottery Barn Kids Empire Strikes Back Bedding Launch
WHERE: Two locations -

Walnut Creek - The Corners
1139 SOUTH MAIN STREET, WALNUT CREEK 94596
925-932-5022


Palo Alto - Stanford Center
88 STANFORD SHOPPING CENTER
PALO ALTO. 94304
650-321-2563


DATE: Saturday October 10th
EVENT TIME: 10:00AM - NOON On site arrival time before store opening at 9:00am They would prefer for us to arrive in street clothes and change in their back room. (I believe this is because the kids are often lined up outside and they don't want to ruin the surprise for the kids or have them start asking us for photos). Please enter at the front door.
WHAT WE ARE DOING: Photo ops, and autographs for the kids.
COSTUMES DESIRED: Formal movie costumes. One Generic Jedi, one trooper or Pilot type character (X-wing Pilot, Rebel Fleet trooper, Endor Trooper - etc). No face characters, if you have a Generic costume please sign up with that. They will only take face characters in rare cases as a last resort. The individual will have to be approved by Legion Command as well has have a fairly strong likeness to the character they portray.
DONATION TO CHARITY: A singular donation on behalf of the Rebel Legion and 501st will be made on the national level for all events.
RSVP DEADLINE: We need to have volunteer names in to Legion Command by the evening of September 10th. If we don't have volunteers by this time the event will be canceled.
AMENITIES: A private changing area, water, and a secure location to store belongings will be provided.
PHOTOGRAPHER: We've been told: "Please no photographers selling shots to our customers – a photographer/handler to record the event for you guys is just fine." We were never 'selling' photos, but perhaps it was misinterpreted to be this way (all our photos are free to dowload). So I suppose unless someone asks you where the photos will be, please don't offer to hand out business cards (but keep a few handy in case a desperate parent asks).
Trading Cards: If you have Rebel Legion costume trading cards we have been given the OK to give these to kids at the store.

I'm currently listed as back-up for the Lego Event (for either San Mateo or Santa Clara). I consider that my primary obligation... but having said that, if we confirm that the volunteers ahead of me on those lists will cover the event, then I will volunteer for this one at the Palo Alto location in my generic Jedi costume.

Are you for sure available in the morning Tom? As I recall with the Lego event you were only going to be able to go after you got off of work at 5:00 pm. Please confirm you are available 9-12:30 in the morning on Saturday Smile

There's no Corte Madera location for this year? Shocked

Tom, since PB is promoting their Empire Strikes Back line, you sure you don't want to wear your Bespin/Dagobah Luke instead?

Depending on the time of the Lego event, and whether I'll be accepted for it, I can put myself down for this (either location), as Luke or Anakin, again if I'm accepted.

I can bring my Yoda statue if they wish and SW music CD's for them to play, like I did last year as well.

Matt - they don't want face characters. Tom is better off in his X-wing costume from what I understand - as that was the #1 choice for Rebel Legion (in addition to Generic Jedi) last time. If I hear differently, I'll post it. But we are operating under the same guidelines as the last event which actually said no face charaters. We got them to bend the rules on Tina last time as Princess Leia because we had so few people available in Sacramento and they already had a Jedi. (She could have either been a second Generic Jedi, or Leia...)

As for your Anakin costume Matt, they first want Generic Jedi (not "Anakin" as he is a face character). Did you wear full Anakin Ep II attire last time, or modify it to be a bit more generic? I think Ep III is more of a stretch because of the glove that is so associated specifically with Anakin - so if no generic Jedi are available then I'd say your Ep II "Anakin" (they don't need to know you are Anakin, just say you are a Jedi) could work for PBK.

OK, we need to get this list finalized an in to Legion Command tomorrow.

I've looked at the sign-ups for the Lego event and there are definitely spots that can be given up for that event to swing over to this event.

The one I'm confused on is JedHead. Are you signed up for anything through the GGG for Lego? I didn't see you on the Lego list for Rebel Legion. Basically, I need to know your event preference since we don't know the time of the events. Do you feel OK potentially dropping out of the Lego event to do Pottery Barn? Then we'll put you as confirmed on Pottery Barn as Generic Jedi/Anakin Ep II.

Just to reiterate it, here is the list for Lego:



    Lola of North Beach San Francisco
    Runamuk - Scott. Generic Jedi (is willing to defer to back-up if a RFT or Pilot wants the spot.)
    Darkskywalker (Roberto C. Moran) - Can do this location or San Mateo but prefers San Francisco. (Has ROTS Anakin - would need face character approval if no generic characters are available for this location)
    LEGO Store San Mateo, CA
    Trooper Dad - RFT - (Could do this location or Santa Clara if need be)
    Kay Dee - X-wing (tentative - could be San Mateo or San Francisco if need be)
    Taeriel () - Generic Jedi (could be back-up or at Santa Clara)
    Darkskywalker (Roberto C. Moran) - Can do this location but prefers San Francisco. (Has ROTS Anakin - would need face character approval if no generic characters are available for this location)



    LEGO Store Santa Clara, CA
    Kay Dee - x-Wing (tentative - could be San Mateo or SF if need be)
    Trooper Dad - RFT - (Could do this location or San Mateo if need be)
    Taeriel () - Jedi (could be back-up or at San Mateo)


So we could have Lego coverage be:

Lola of North Beach San Francisco
Runamuk - Scott. Generic Jedi (is willing to defer to back-up if a RFT or Pilot wants the spot.)

LEGO Store San Mateo, CA

Darkskywalker (Roberto C. Moran) - Can do this location or San Mateo but prefers San Francisco. (Has ROTS Anakin - would need face character approval if no generic characters are available for this location)
Kay-Dee - X-wing back up if Roberto isn't approved. If Roberto is approved I'll do a PBK location.


LEGO Store Santa Clara, CA
Trooper Dad - RFT - (Could do this location or San Mateo if need be)

This leaves open for PBK (assuming Matt is OK giving up his 501st volunteer work for Lego through the 501st)

VOLUNTEERS:

Walnut Creek:
1) nebelwerfer - X-Wing pilot
2) Jedhead - generic Jedi (tentative, pending participation in Lego event; alternatively, may be photographer)
3) (BACK-UP)

Palo Alto
1) Taeriel - generic Jedi
2) Kay Dee - Tentative pending Roberto being approved for the LEGO event as a Jedi (iffy because he is Ep III Anakin)
3) (BACK-UP)

Kathy,

On GGG's list, I got confirmed as doing the Lego event in SF as TIE Pilot, even though I signed up as either TI or SL (Anakin). It looks like Roberto got approved for his SL for San Mateo. The time was listed as 2-4 pm. I can still do both events (PB in costume or not). If that's the case, I can do the Pottery Barn in Palo Alto, then Lego in SF, since the commute would be easier for me.

Ah, last I heard there was not a time listed for PBK (that was before I left for D*Con. I asked Hofmann and there was no word). So Roberto signed up with both the RL and GGG for LEGO. D'oh! People need to let us know in the future if they are double dipping on the sign ups - hehe! I'll put that in my pocket I guess to preface on all future RL event sign ups as you can't really be signing up for a two spots Wink

Oh gosh, let me look at these lists again. The rest of us need reasonable commutes too.

OK I am finally getting caught up on all of this....whew, what moving and a week without internet can do to ya.

You can count me in for the Walnut Creek Event. Matt, if you really want to drive out here that's cool, but I am totally up for it as Generic Jedi. I am sure Jessica can show up to take pictures too.
