View Full Version : All wings report in! Who's gotten their CIII packs?

03-19-2005, 04:54 PM
I just got mine today and I am colossally geeking out!!!! The Darth Vader 3-in-1 topper is (surprisingly) beautifully rendered in foam!

The fan club lanyard, for those who haven't yet seen it, is a bright orange and has the "Star Wars Celebration III" logo and the "Hyperspace" logo printed around it.

Gaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! I can't wait!!!

I haven't seen mine yet. Orange? Why orange? That sucks, maybe I'll bring my Celebration II lanyard and wear it after I get in.

03-20-2005, 12:41 AM
Hmmm.....I ordered mine late and have to pick it up at will call. :(

03-20-2005, 03:29 AM
Mine shipped 3/15 & arrived 3/18. I ordered 1st day back in Sept. Has it been 6 mos.???

03-20-2005, 08:28 AM
Got mine!!

Seeing the 4-day badge, vader topper, lanyard, etc......makes me so anxious to go!

I think they wanted it to stand out-- or recall hot, molten lava. Swapping lanyards probably isn't the smartest thing to do as they won't permit you into the fan club events or multiple events without it.

Nothing yet for me . . . filled with jealous rage . . . must control . . .

Anyway, how do you know when yours has shipped?

03-21-2005, 12:17 AM
By what shipping service are they arriving (USPS, FedEx, UPS)?????

03-21-2005, 04:07 AM
Regular snail mail with about 83 cents of postage!

03-21-2005, 11:50 AM

Woohoo!! Got mine today. If only they would have given me the VIP badge instead . . .

03-25-2005, 05:53 PM
I got mine the other day and everything was correct, so now I'm just waiting for my mom's pass to arrive (they were ordered separately)

03-25-2005, 11:33 PM
Got mine yesterday. YAY!

03-26-2005, 08:55 AM
For those who are still waiting...

03-28-2005, 01:16 PM
My brother and I ordered ours on the same day, he got his on Saturday, mail came today it was not there for me.:(

03-30-2005, 09:44 AM
Has anyone recieved any kind of information on their tickets to the Celebration @ Celebration III? I didn't recieve anything with my packet, and I'm a little concerned. Is this event willcall only?

Also. . . does this show up under your registrations on the starwarscelebration page, along with the regular admission?

i think that the party is willcall only because the signup came so close to the mailout of the badges...i checked my signup and it says celebration as something i've purchased...

I got mine a few days ago. I really like that Vader head!

For those wondering, the non-Hyperspace passes are just blue cords with little silver things on the ends of them. I managed to break one off because I didn't know how to put them through the sides and thought they connected together somehow. :rolleyes: I got the Hyperspace pass, and my parents got regular. It will suck having to choose which Fan Club benefits to give them.

Or, they can wait outside while I do everything I want. :D

03-31-2005, 09:28 AM
I think the CIII Party passes are Will Call for everyone -so I'm not worried.

I still have not recieved my packet yet -I'm starting to get nervous about that*

(*watch, It'll show in the mail today because I said something)

03-31-2005, 11:35 AM
Got my pass a couple of weeks ago, but didnt receive the Vader topper. Since emailed GenCon about it and they have assured me they would ship me one out.

03-31-2005, 04:13 PM
Can someone post a photo of the non-Hyperspace stuff?


04-01-2005, 08:52 PM
I finally got my Pack today! A little worried there.

The non-Hyperspace stuff isnt that exciting. Its just an elastic cord. I'm gonna get a different lanyard to wear (if I can) -the cord wont be that comfortable to wear for hours on end.

I really like the Vader Topper. Dont think I'll put it on my car though. I can see somebody walking by and stealing it.

So, its the same pass but a different cord?

04-03-2005, 11:42 PM
Mine still hasn't arrived.:( They say that if they haven't come by April 6th that we have to e-mail the registrations office. Anyone have an idea of what they will do if that is the case. Send out another set priority mail?

04-08-2005, 12:15 PM

I got mine yesterday finally I am so relieved.:zzz:

Has been received! Looking forward to going and seeing all you like minded fans and collectors....

I have a question. I just became a fan club member after buying the early bird set, and I wondered how I can go about getting the guest passes? Also, did I have to be a member when I ordered my badge to be able to enter early with the fan club members, or is there some other way? Just curious.

04-09-2005, 02:55 PM
I think the only way to get the lanyard was to be fanclub member when they sent out the badges (and you had to say you were in the fanclub when you ordered the badges).

Could always email/call gencon to see if its possible to get a lanyard now.

04-10-2005, 07:55 AM
I am using a ZANTAC lanyard:D , those cheap cords that came with the badges are pathetic!!!

I have a friend that had a problem with GenCon in not getting his badges in the mail. I can't remember if he said he had to but a whole new badge, with an additional processing fee of $2.00 or it was just the processing fee. Is there a way to early bird order and then just pick them up at the convention, is that what the "Will Call" desk is for? Is the Celebration at Celebration 3 sold out? I tried ordering a ticket but it wasn' there for me to select on the web page. I know they said they can have a line standing by, so can u buy that there at the Will Call?

Got mine last week. I was starting to worry a bit, but now I just can't wait to leave!!!


04-10-2005, 06:10 PM
I still have my lanyard from Celebration I - I'm using that. I threw the cord away.

04-11-2005, 02:30 AM
scruffziller - You can buy badges for pickup. Thats what the "will call" option is for. As for Celebration at Celebration3, its sold out. I missed out on that one too.

04-11-2005, 10:25 AM
Thnx CoolJoe for the info. Really looking forward to seeing you all there !!!!!!!!:)

04-12-2005, 08:37 AM
I e-mailed GenCOn...and here was their helpful answer regarding my fan club lanyard question...

"You will have to go to the Fan Club booth onsite to pick up your benefits. Thanks!"

04-12-2005, 09:23 AM
GenCon could take a lesson or two in customer service. It's kinda lacking.

04-12-2005, 09:31 AM
I think getting CIII together on top of the regualr conventions they do must be a little overwhelming. But alas, its coming up!

04-12-2005, 09:37 AM
I agree it may be overwhelming but we've all read problems convention attendees have encountered, and the responses have been generic emails. They need to post a phone number on the web site, and if it takes two days for them to get back to you, that's cool. At least a real live person is better than an email.

04-14-2005, 09:35 PM
I also ordered mine aroun that time and Finnally the packet, to bad they didnt do my order right and didnt include my lanyard, since i have complained and hopefully its resolved ....... crossing fingers,,,,,,, hahahaha

04-14-2005, 09:44 PM
I think GenCon got a larger response then what they were anticipating. After being thru C2, I am hoping it is more organized.

For those that are doing will call.... Will calls can be picked up starting Wed. Check the C3 website for schedule info.
