Reminder (to me too) the Wattographs signing with Rohan Nichol and Mike Quinn end on the 30th. I'm still deciding on what to send in so I need to hurry too.

Was thinking about some trading cards for both signers and a photo for Nichol.

How are you guys getting this stuff personally signed? I thought you have to go through LFL authorized services like Official Pics or something? I didn't know you could just mail them directly to them and have them sign it. Do you have a list of addresses?

Jayspawn
02-27-2008, 07:17 PM
You can go through OfficialPix anytime.

But Wattographs has the world's largest, FREE database of Star Wars Actors. You simply register, send your fan mail and wait for a reply. Most/some of the time you get a reply. And sometimes you dont. Its a hit or miss game of patience.

But its been far more rewarding for me as a collector and I enjoy the hell out of it. Wattographs is awesome for it -most sites with that service charge you for its information.

decadentdave
02-27-2008, 07:20 PM
That sounds awesome, but do you know if they are really signing or their publicist? What are the chances of Harrison Ford or Ewan McGregor? Next to nil I'd imagine.

Jayspawn
02-27-2008, 07:32 PM
Most of the actors have been around lone enough or done enough appearances/conventions for people to know what their autograph looks like. People like Jeremy Bulloch or Dave Prowse are pretty easy to tell.

Theres always a posibility of getting a secretarial. I know 1 that I have is, which I got from Temuera Morrison (or rather his secretary) because I've met him several times and have numerous autographs all of which are identical except for the mail version.

Most of the actors have a pretty good attitude toward SW, and as long as you pay for return postage -they'll sign an item for you. But its a favor they're doing for you and they really dont get anything out of it.

Now, Harrison Ford WONT sign through the mail. He has no reason to. I have a few Ewan McGregors, one I got through the mail on a small b&w photo. The signature is believed to be real, but there is no pattern to how Ewan signs so its hard to authenticate. But theres no reason that his agency wouldnt have him sit down and scribble a bunch of photos to send back with fan mail. Everynow and then somebody gets a personal item back actually signed by him as well.

Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen, Liam Neeson and such are NOT going to sign for the same reason Ford doesnt. The dont need the money and have no incentive. Thats not to say they've never signed a SW (or other) item. But SW items from them are extremely rare and warrent a high market value. Unfortunatly most of them out there are fake.

decadentdave
02-27-2008, 07:51 PM
That's the reason why the only signed items I have are Signature Editions of Master Replicas props because I know they are genuine. I did meet Carrie Fisher at Comic Con and had her sign a personalized photo but that is a rare exception for me. I'm generally not big on signings unless there's a chance that I have an opportunity to actually meet them in person. Not only that but it irritates me to pay an exhorbant amount to a celebrity for their autograph. No way am I going to pay Billy Dee Williams forty bucks to sign something.

And I will never get over my Lou Ferrigno experience at Comic Con. I had just bought the Incredible Hulk Season 1 DVD set and my friend and I walked past him and he said, "Hey, you should have Lou Ferrigno sign your DVD set." So I went back and took off my backpack to pull out my DVD, Lou sees me coming with it, and before I can say anything he points and says "That's new. That's forty." I was confused. He gestures to his photos and says, "If you want one of my pictures, they're twenty but if you want me to sign that, it's forty." Now what I should have said was "Forget it, " but I felt intimidated (Lou is still a big mother) so I reluctantly handed him two twenties and he signed, rather sloppily I might add, the front of the lenticular box which his signature is really illegible. It was a terrible experience and my friend always teases me saying "That's new, that's forty." I felt so bad about it that I have NEVER watched my Incredible Hulk DVDs and probably never will. I was so disgusted that a childhood hero takes advantage of his fans for money just because he's an unemployed actor who has to do conventions for a living now.

Now I'm depressed. I need some Prozac.

02-27-2008, 10:18 PM
Oh that sucks dave. Dont let yor bad experience ruin it all for ya.

Wattographs, OfficialPix and In Person are the only autographs -you cant go wrong with. If they wernt real -I would recommend them so strongly.

Autograph Michael Culver Captain Needa (TTM) - glad it arrived before I'm going to Tunisia tonight:

Jayspawn
03-06-2008, 11:48 AM
Congrats on Michael Culver. I got a success from him 2 years ago. I'm not sure what he signs with, it looks like a paint pen as the flow looks inconsistant. He hasnt been signing too much latley -maybe its hit or miss.

HEY! Wattographs announced their March signers as Matt Doran from AOTC and John Dicks from ESB. Sweet! Doran is really hard to get.

Jayspawn

Jayspawn
04-27-2008, 11:21 AM
Lightning Bear is a great TTM signer.

However. Theres too much a debate as to wether he was actually in Return of the Jedi or not. Most obvious, he's TOO TALL! I saw him in person at CIV and hes about a foot taller that any Stormtrooper I've ever seen in the movies. He's never been able to produce any evidence that hes been in a SW movie at all. 3rd, none of the confirmed SW troopers remember him at either. Its possible that he was just an extra somewhere. Until something comes up showing him in the movies -I dont want his signature on anything.

Thank you for the kind words! Focusing my collecting in a particular area has made SW collecting more meaningful to me as a fan. The way I see it, each signature gives me a part of SW itself. Glad to hear we have some readers!

Wattographs has announced today that they will be taking send-in items from Fan's for London Film and Comic Con. They have a great lineup of autograph signers listed -not to be missed.

Thank you for the kind words! Focusing my collecting in a particular area has made SW collecting more meaningful to me as a fan. The way I see it, each signature gives me a part of SW itself. Glad to hear we have some readers!



Thanks TeeEye7! :) I enjoy collecting a few things and Imperial SW autographs are among them.

You're both quite welcome! I must continue and say that I especially appreciate the pictures you post of your acquisitions. It's really exciting to see your collections grow!

My autographed items are few: a couple of carded R2-D2 figures when I took my son to meet Kenny Baker years ago, and I had a friend get María de Aragón's when I gave him my POFT2 Greedo carded figure when he was going to a convention.

Jayspawn
06-23-2008, 01:56 AM
Thats cool! I have 1 sig from María de Aragón myself on a Topps card. I've hear shes very nice but she's not much for appearances anymore. She did several in the 90's. Shes one of the more uncommon signers these days.

I've got a question regarding the Kenner/Hasbro action figure posters, the ones that show an entire line...POTF, ROTS, etc.

Without resorting to a 5 year ebay quest to find them all, does anyone know if these exist digitally or some other source to get them?

Also, have they done them for every figure line? I know for sure that there was the Kenner A-Z one, the ROTS and current Legacy...I think there was a POTJ one.

The plaque is MR style (http://stage.rebelscum.com/estore/proddetail.asp?prod=PS-MR-SET&cat=170), maybe not by looks but by size and shape (the wide signature model).

Haha, I actually don't have any on display. They're all in binders -I have 1 for each movie, another for Indiana Jones, another for signed cards, and another for Clone Wars/EU. When I move in the spring I plan on having room to display some cool stuff though.

Although, I do have the SW "Circus Style D" one sheet poster which is signed by artist Drew Struzan and I have the Richard Amsel "Raiders of the Lost Ark" one sheet signed by 5 of the cast members -both posters are nicely framed on various walls.

I have Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee, Kenny Baker, John Williams & James Earl Jones, & Peter Mayhew. So, I was glad the OP signing with Mark Hamill( I already had Mark from an old QVC plaque) included some B&W stills(some I'd never seen).

I'm split on autopens. Technically its a success because you got an autograph of Charlize -just that it didnt come FROM Charlize. I think if I was famous I'd sign some stuff occasionally rather than have somebody sign things on my behalf. Even if my mail became backlogged.

Indeed. That's why everyone loves James Earl Jones, old generation actor, he respects his fan base and signs everything. No autopen, no secretarials.

Another question for Sergiurusu and Jayspawn:

What is the largest single item in your collections (as in size), and how do you or will you display it?

sergiurusu
03-25-2009, 03:52 AM
If you mean autographs, I only have 8x10 pictures. Never got interested in trading cards or larger posters. The 8x10 are easy to store and also easy to frame and don't take too much space on the wall.

I think the largest would be my cast signed posters. I have the Episode I Teaser and a black & silver trilogy poster. The Episode I is signed by most of the cast (minus McGregor, Portman, Neeson, Lucas, etc). And I started the Trilogy poster 2 years ago I think. Its signed in silver on the black side and signed in blue on the silver side. Each poster is 27x40. I plan to have them professionally framed someday after I 'retire' them. I actually havnt seen them in a few years -they're always off at a signing somewhere. :thumbsup:

If I didnt have so much of my collection itself in storage -my place would be an impassible labyrinth of SW collectibles. But I reasonably balance SW and the real world pretty good. I'm in the process of buying a house so ALL my collectibles are boxed up till a later time.

I got a slew of awesome autographs from Wattographs today. Reveiced photos from Goran Kleut, Carrie Fisher, Frank Henson, Michael Carter, and Toby Longworth.

Wattographs' new autograph signings are with Anthony Daniels and Zuraya Hamilton (Arena Jedi). Been holding onto some photos for Daniels to sign -and I need him on my Trilogy cast poster anyways.

While I like getting autographs from Star Wars celebrities like Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew and them, I really enjoy getting autographs from the B and C cast as well. Adds more variety to my collection and adds a real sense to how diverse filming Star Wars really is.

Not SW related, but I'm getting 2 Star Trek posters signed at my local convention this weekend. While the guest list leaves much to be desired, I'm adding Brent Spiner (Data) to my Generations poster and Robert Picardo (EMH Doctor) to my First Contact poster.

Wattographs is meeting up with Anythony Daniels this next week for his autograph signings. Sent in a few photos I've been needing his sig on along with my Trilogy poster.

Yesterday was Day 1 of my local sci-fi conention. Aside from the massive snow storm (which doesnt help) it was pretty dismal due to the Dealers Room selling nothing new and the less than stellar guest list. I did get to talk to Brent Spiner for a few minuets and he siged my Generations poster.

Wattographs this month is hosting a private signing with Lewis McLeod -the voice of Sebulba in TPM. I've been holding onto some items for just a signing so I'm pumped for this!

They're also doing another multi-signed piece, this time Salacious Crumb. Its available in 11x14 and 16x20 and will be signed by the creatuve team behind the character ie: Tim Rose (puppeteer), Mark Dodson (Crumb's voice) and Tony McVey (sculptor).

The multi-signed pieces they do are really cool so I always recommend these truely unique collectibles.

Wattographs is doing their June autograph signings with FX Master Phil Tippett!

Very reasonable price too. I just got a TTM success from Phil but his responses are so random. Gonna get him on my Trilogy poster for sure. They're offering some good images of characters Phil played.

They're also signing with Colin Ware. Who played Rute Gunnay and Lushros Dofine in Episode III. Ware isnt a common signer and I dont have his sig yet so I'm in on this one.

I found an ESB Anniversary poster a few weeks ago. Its an original folded poster so I decided to send it around through the mail to get signed. Had a success from Jason Wingreen this last week so theres #1. Trying to decide on the 2nd place to send it -I think Richard Bonehill will be next.

Sent a request off to Richard Bonehill this last week. Sent the folded ESB poster.

This last month has been pretty good to me for successes. Received: James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan), Drew Henley, and Stuart Freeborn.

Still havn't moved into my house yet so all my TTM supplies are still in storage. Its always a chore to get them out then put them away after use.

The 2 plaques are staying much better right now, than in the picture above (I should take a new picture soon). But I'm thinking of getting a few more plaques signed by Snowtroopers and then they won't fit inside the display case. So I'll take these 2 out too and maybe make a smaller display case just for the plaques (2-5 plaques case)

I forgot to list the people I got in person at Chicago Comic-Con this year (back in August):

Tom Kane (CW Yoda)
Billy Dee Williams (Lando, I got 2 = an ESB pic and a ROTJ pic)
Maria de Argon (Greedo in the ANH reshoots)
Dave Barclay (Jabba's right hand and a Yoda puppeteering asst.)

Richard Le Parmentier (Motti) cancelled, so that's the 2nd time I missed that guy at a show.

And then there was the usual suspects of Mayhew, Bulluch, Ray Park, Jerome Blake, etc whom I've seen at previous shows.

You know, I'm still surprised I actually got Billy Dee ! I know he's been doing more shows lately, but he's still one of the bigger names I've gotten in person...I was bummed when he cancelled a few years ago, so this was cool.

Wattographs is having their May autograph signings with Kenny Baker and Darren Robinson. Kenny of course played R2-D2 and Ewok Paploo in Return of the Jedi. Robinson played various senators in The Phantom Menace. Pretty good offering, considering that Baker only does a few conventions in London now, and doesnt sign his fanmail anymore. Robinson has never done a signing, period. So I think I can dig up something for both signers!

Celebration 5 is a few months away! Carrie Fisher has been named as the 1st guest. More to come tomorrow aparently.
