I thought I'd restart the old Thread to celebrate my recent throught the mail success.

I recieved an 8x10 photo I sent to Kenneth Colley. It came back to me signed "Ken Colley, Adm Piett". It only took a few weeks to get to the UK and back to the States.

In the last few months I recieved through the mail (TTM in Fanspeak) photos signed by James Earl Jones and Jason Wingreen (orginal voice of Boba Fett).

In poster news, I recieved a Revenge of the Jedi one sheet and appatrently I have the famous Birthday poster on the way to me now. Needless to say I'm pretty excited! :D

Well done Jay, I don't have any recent SW TTM (through the mail) success to report but then again I haven't sent any in a long time, either. :) I should go through my list and pull out the SW names...

You know, I just realized I did send a few in the last 4 months or so but none have come back, yet: ILM guys like Don Bies and Rob Coleman, I sent the pics from Vanity Fair. I'm crossing my fingers on those!

The crown jewel of my TTM collection is still definitely Rick McCallum, though. :D

I recieved the SWS.com exclusive Yoda Fireworks/4th of July Revenge of the Sith One Sheet. I thought it was unique so I picked one up -its a great poster too!

Jayspawn

Placed another order w/ Official Pix today for some more photos. Gotta get those TTMs ready. Picked up a few random photos of Captain Needa and Governor Tarkin to hopefully get signed later.

I'm sending out to Terence Stamp (Chancellor Valorum) and Clive Revill (original Emperor from ESB) today.

Clive Revill is a lock ! :) I got Stamp too, but I question its authenticity. :confused:

Good luck ! :)

Clive Revill is a lock ! :) I got Stamp too, but I question its authenticity. :confused:

Stamp is not known for signing Star Wars items, but sending his own instead. But I've seen some real items signed so he must do it sometimes. I have my fingers tightly crossed on that one.

My Valorum pic came back signed but I can't tell if it's authentic or not. :confused:

I'll have to pull up a scan...

I recieved my photo back signed by Julian Glover (General Veers) today. It came nicely inscribed and everything!

As a HUGE shock to everyone yesterday, SWS.com sold a VERY limited George Lucas SIGNED Cinema Legends photo. It was $199.99 and limited to just 25!!!

Apparently the picture was of the Flanneled One standing in the Lucasfilm Archives. I didnt get one and havnt seen it yet, ohhhhhh but I can picture it.

I would have bought one in a heartbeat had I now arrived too late. :cross-eye

Note: apparently this was just a hoax. it was started by a cruel member on Rebelscum (it figures).

08-11-2006, 10:39 AM
That would be cool but I don't think I could drop two hundy on it.

The other day I received my Watto photo back from Scotland signed by Andy Secombe ! :grin: And get this, in my envelope he put a signed AOTC Widevision card ! :eek: Even cooler, it's not signed in blue like the pack inserted cards but rather in black so it's the authentic card but signed uniquely. Very generous! :)

I'll get a scan up eventually.

I have had two Star Wars posters for about 10 years now. I purchased them from Spencer Gifts. They are the Special Edition posters for A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back with the "coming soon" type release dates on them. The difference? They are LED posters that plug in and light up. (I never found Jedi) I have never seen them on eBay. Does anyone have any idea if they are worth anything?

Thanks

Jayspawn
08-17-2006, 01:50 PM
How big are they? Are the credits on the poster? I've been looking for them for a refrence and found an A New Hope LED poster. Not sure if it goes with the series for not.

Jayspawn
08-17-2006, 02:15 PM
I sent off a photo of Moff Jejerrod to a fellow I know in England whos going to get it signed for me by Michael Pennington at Empire Day this September.

I picked up a few packs of Topps NEW Evolution cards hoping to get lucky with a Christensen or Hamill -not to mention Lucas, Guiness or Cushing.

Jayspawn
08-24-2006, 08:02 PM
This last week I purchased a box and a few random packs of the new Evolution cards. I was able to pull Kit Fisto and Biggs Darklighter autograph cards. So I'm happy but will still collect these for the auto cards until the famous 3 have been found.

*edit: Mark Hamill did not sign in this series.

Jayspawn
08-30-2006, 04:18 PM
Stopped by the comic book shop today and randomly bought 2 packs of cards. And wouldnt you know it, I pulled a 2nd Kit Fisto Auto card! HA! I was really hoping for one I didnt have but it sure is better than nothing.

Jayspawn
08-30-2006, 07:12 PM
I was able to score a GREAT ANH cast photo in the mail today...

http://www.ybfree.com/40AMAZING1.jpg

Here's a picture of it (only without the text). One of my favorite pictures! I especially like Leia wearing the ceremonial gown w/ the buns hairstyle. it reminds me of the theatrical posters. I'm saving it to be signed by (I hope) at least Mayhew, Fisher or Hamill.

Hey, these lenticular 3D posters are up for sale at Star Wars Shop. They look really nice. limited to just 1000 pieces each! I just purchased all three. The Empire Stikes Back is my favorite. Scroll down to see all of them. http://shop.starwars.com/catalog/product.xml?product_id=405503

Jayspawn
09-06-2006, 10:14 AM
They're really cool looking!

I actually passed because they're not that big, and I can get better SW posters for less $. I'm short on space so I have to be particular about wich posters I get now.

Jayspawn
09-07-2006, 08:13 PM
I'm placing another OP order and getting envelopes ready to be sent out for autograph requests. :pleased:

Jayspawn
09-13-2006, 12:23 PM
They're all ready! Im sending out to Michael Culver (Captain Needa), Oliver Ford Davies (Sio Bibble), Michael Carter (Bib Fortuna), Tem Morrison (Jango Fett & Cody), and Ralph McQuarrie. The IRCs are gonna be expensive!

I should have a couple of sealed SW Evolution cards on the way to me now. Looking for more Auto cards.

Jayspawn
09-19-2006, 11:13 AM
Looks like sending off the the UK will have to wait. Looks like IRCs are going up 10 cents within the week. But Tem Morrison and Ralph McQuarrie did get sent off too.

Also opened 3 sealed boxes of Evolution cards and pulled my 3rd Biggs Darklighter (Garrick Haggon), Plo Koon (Matt Sloan), and Barriss Offee (Nalini Krishnan) Auto cards. Not bad pulls, but would still rather pull Pygram, Christensen or a 1/1 Signature card.

2-1B
09-19-2006, 07:35 PM
I've never used IRCs in all of my overseas attempts...I just tossed in a few American dollars and I have a pretty good success rate. :) Alan Harris even returned my money, I thought that was EXTREMELY kind of him. :)

Jayspawn
09-20-2006, 01:04 PM
I still need to send out to him. I think he'll be in the next batch.

Jayspawn
09-26-2006, 06:14 PM
Got back my 1st through the mail failure. I recieved my photo from Terence Stamp back today with an enclosed note that said I'm afraid Terence doesnt sign Star Wars merchandise or pictures.

I figured I'd get it back but worth the try. He's not known for signing Star Wars items. But at least I got my picture back!

2-1B
09-26-2006, 06:36 PM
I didn't think my Stamp was authentic...your results lead me to believe it even more. :(

Jayspawn
09-27-2006, 11:36 AM
I may try sending a General Zod photo from Superman II.

I did send out to Michael Carter (Bib Fortuna) today. I've heard of good successes with him.

Jayspawn

Made an early trip to the post office, sent out to Nalini Krishan, Michael Culver and Oliver Ford Davies.

So who all do you have so far Jayspawn? I like to get autographs but only if I can actually meet them. My favorites are the people who are into meeting their fans and interacting with them like Ray Park and the Jabba puppeteers.

Jayspawn
09-29-2006, 05:41 PM
My favorites are from the people I've met in person.

Who all do I have? Lets see, I'll do my best to recall....

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Ewan McGregor, Anthony Daniels, Christopher Lee, Ray Park, James Earl Jones, Dave Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis, Ahmed Best, Pernilla August, Christine Hewitt, Temuera Morrison, Daniel Logan, Zach Jensen, Jesse Jensen, Garrick Haggon, Nalini Krishan, Leeanna Walsman, Jay Laga'aia, Bonnie Piesse, Phil Brown, Alan Ruscoe, Jerome Blake, Matt Sloan, Bodie Taylor, Amy Allen, Sandi Finlay, Paul Blake, Femi Taylor, Mary Oyaya, Orli Shoshan, Julian Glover, Kenneth Colley, Ralph Brown, Michonne Bourraigue, Richard LeParmentier, Paul Blake, Michael Sheard, Ian Liston, Jason Wingreen, Caroline Blankiston, and Barrie Holland.

dindae
09-29-2006, 09:56 PM
yeah I have a lot of the same names since they are common con signers although I would like to get Mark Hamill, Ewan McGregor, Anthony Daniels, Christopher Lee, and James Earl Jones. I found out that Anthony Daniels was going to be at Dragon Con in Atlanta the week of the con. I thought breifly of driving down but they had a disclaimer that the guests were not required to sign and didn't have any information on whether he would. Most of mine came from Celebration 2 and 3. It was close and I was able to pick up a good amount for the trip. I was hoping to pick up some more at Celebration 4 but LA is a long haul for one or two autgraphs (which was probably the highlight of both cons for me).

Recieved a nice b&w promotional photo in the mail today signed by Dave Prowse. It has Dave on one side, Vader on the other. Measures about 4x8.

I have two photos like that from when I was a kid. One is C-3PO/Daniels and one is Chewbacca/Mayhew. The head shot of the actors were from the 70's and histerical to look at now. Mayhew has short hair and a big bushy mustache. Neither are signed but they are probably the most unique items I have in my collection.

Oh cool! And there s a blank space in between the pictures for signing isnt there? I wouldnt mind having the Mayhew or Daniels either. Might have to track those down.

Signing Opportunity
Gary and Scott over at Wattographs.com are hosting a private signing with Michael Pennington, Moff Jejerrod from Return of the Jedi. Michael does not make many appearances, nor signs that often. I'm definatly in! Follow the link for more info....

2 more TTM successes today! (sort of)

- recieved my 8x10 photo back signed from Michael Culver (Captain Needa). It came inscribed and as an added bonus, the return envelope's custom's sticker is signed by him as well! Ha!

- and in the mail also was my 8x10 of Jango Fett and Evolution card. Both came back signed however each is a secretarial. Still a success but totally not the real-deal. I'm keeping it as a token.

- I ordered a sealed case of SW Evolution cards a few days ago. Should have worlds of better luck getting a big pull. :twisted:

Jayspawn
10-18-2006, 02:51 PM
And 2 MORE successes as well as some so/so Topps sucesess...

- recieved my photo back from Oliver Ford Davies (Sio Bibble). It came signed in silver and personalized.

- recieved my artwork cards signed by Ralph McQuarrie. These were the 5x7cards included with Theatrical version DVDs bought at Target. All 3 came back signed R.M.Q.

But as a disapointment, I recieved a sealed case of Topps SW Evolution cards. And mainly pulled autograph cards of ones I already had....

x3 Biggs Darklighter (already had 4 of them)
x2 Tarrful (didnt have his yet)
x1 Sly Moore
x1 Asaee Tiin (already had)
x1 Barriss Offee (already had)

I figured with a sealed case I couldnt go wrong and pull a somewhat/major auto cards. Very dissapointing.

dindae
10-19-2006, 02:12 PM
Yeah I found that with the CCGs if I wanted a complete set it was easier to buy a few boxes to get the basic set and a few lucky draws. Then pick up the ones I missed off ebay. Nothing worse than blowing a whole lot of money on some boxes of cards to get nothing. Of course the 1/1 cards in this series mean that only one person will ever have a complete set. Talk about crappy. I'm so glad I don't collect CCG now. I spend so much money on a game I never played. :crazed:

Jayspawn
10-23-2006, 11:19 PM
Here's a heck of a deal. OfficialPix has secured a private signing with none other than Samuel L. Jackson! The preorder is only live for a few more days so act quickly!

The signing involves free personalization and they have a selection of 4 photos to choose from. Each signature runs $129.99. A little steep but it IS a legitimate autograph from a major Star Wars and movie actor.

Check out http://OfficialPix.com

Jayspawn
10-31-2006, 11:14 AM
Looks like the signing with Jackson is now CLOSED! But...

They are doing 2 Clone Wars signings with -

Grey DeLisle (voice of Padme, Shakk Ti, Adi Gallia and Ventress) and
Tom Kane (voice of Yoda)

They have several photos available to choose from and free personalization!

In other news, Wattographs.com will be doing a signing with Chris Parsons, 4-LOM from The Empire Strikes Back. But not yet! Its coming up.

11-01-2006, 11:36 AM
That poster signing that Harrison Ford did with coolwaterprods.com (who set up the Master Replicas signature) is up now and they are being sold. Going fast too. I was lucky to get the original signed Raiders poster before they sold out of that one (they only had three to begin with) - still some SW posters left.

Jayspawn
11-01-2006, 01:02 PM
Aahhh... you got in on that ey C5Jedi?

I'm tempted. There's a few SW posters left and I want one badly! BUT, I'm trying to hold out for OfficialPix to do a Ford signing. I'll most likely be cheaper and on a good photo (I'd rather have a signed photo than poster).

Jayspawn
11-03-2006, 07:21 PM
Placed an order with OfficialPix today for some photos. Getting some TTMs ready to be sent out. Should have everything ready when the package arrives in a few days.

Who's up this round?

2-1B
11-04-2006, 09:37 AM
I would also opt for a signed 8x10 over anything else...some people love getting DVDs signed but that's not really my thing. I certainly do have some though, and they are cool, but 8x10s are my favorite.

Jayspawn
11-05-2006, 11:06 PM
Up this round..... Alan Harris (Bossk), Kenny Baker (R2) and Peter Geddis (Captain Antillies).

dindae
11-06-2006, 08:53 AM
Don't know about the other two but I would imagine that Kenny will send you one back. The Baker's are good people. While I was getting autographs at CII my girlfriend was walking around. Mrs. Baker waved her over and asked her if she could tell if one of the other Con attendees was a "bloke or a lady". Afterwards she had her sit down with them and they talked for a few hours while Kenny signed autographs. Ironically they capped his line before I could get in it so I didn't get his autograph until I went to Gencon the next year.

2-1B
11-06-2006, 08:21 PM
Alan Harris is one of the coolest TTM successes I ever had ! ! ! The man is truly, truly generous! I had this great 8x10 but didn't want to risk losing it since I didn't know what my odds of success were...so I sent my won crappy copy of it. Well, he kept that one and sent me a nice glossy version of his own, the exact same pic but high quality, plus this really big 9x12 (?) panaramic shot of the bounty hunters on the Executor.

Class act all the way ! ! !

Jayspawn
11-07-2006, 11:23 AM
Thanks Caesar! I have a great photo of the Bounty Hunters from ESB I'm sending but I'm sending it off to Chris Parsons (4-LOM) first through Wattographs to get signed first. After Parsons and Harris I plan on sending it to Jeremy Bulloch for the final signature. Nobody played IG-88 and sadly the fellow who played Dengar passed away. Nobdy has heard from Cathy Monroe who played Zuckuss either.

Jayspawn
11-08-2006, 09:47 PM
I ended up sending out to Shannon McRandle (Mara Jade) today. Should be a quick TTM. So we'll see. Never got around to getting her signature though I've had several chances.

2-1B
11-11-2006, 01:07 PM
I don't remember if I posted these in the other thread but here are the Bossk pics I was sent by the very generous Mr. Harris. First is an 8x10 and the second is bigger than that, I couldn't even fit it all in my scanner so the ends got cut off of the pic. Cool stuff !

Jayspawn
11-12-2006, 09:54 PM
Those are great Caesar! I cant wait to send out to him too.

Jayspawn
11-17-2006, 12:26 PM
Finally got my photos from OfficialPix. They actually sent me the wrong Slave Leia photo, but thats ok. They sent me a good one just not the one I ordered. Oh well, this gives me an excuse to place another order and use the discount code they just gave out.

Jayspawn
11-17-2006, 06:41 PM
Woohoo! Got my autograph request back from Shannon McRandle (Mara Jade) today. I sent her a letter, $15 check and SASE to her (via her website) and recieved the requested photo signed to me as well as a 2nd photo of herself signed "Jay Thanks- Best wishes! XO Shannon" Very pleased. It took just over a week too!

Recieved my latest photos from OfficialPix today. They sent me the wrong photo of Slave Leia. Its still a great photo so I decided to hold onto it. I'm gonna place another photo order anyways so I'll just get another.

I sent a photo and tradig card to Kenny Baker today. Since he frequents the USA, I sent $ instead of IRCs for return postage.

Jayspawn
11-19-2006, 08:45 PM
Big news! Autograph and Star Wars related!

As it turns out, Catherine (Cathy) Monroe who played Zuckuss in The Empire Strikes Back -is ALIVE!

I had read both that she was dead (it was common knowledge that she was) or that she was one of the many Star Wars actors to dissapear, never to be seen or heard from again.

Go figure. Anyways, she appearing at Empire Day in the UK. Not sure where she came from. I'm curious to find out. Huh.

Jayspawn
11-27-2006, 03:46 PM
Today is a landmark day in the Universe of Star Wars news!

OfficialPix has been able to secure a signing with non other than Ian McDiarmid, The Emperor himself!

There are (or were) 3 pieces available. 2 from ROTJ and 1 from ROTS. They are (or were) priced at $229.99 and $169.99.

I am actually passing on this signing for 2 reasons. 1, the price. A little steep and just a little more than I'm willing to spend at this point. 2, I'm already involved in 7 private signings now, not counting TTMs and my wallet is about to catch on fire.

But, he is a VERY RARE signer and this is truely a remarkable feat getting him to do a signing. If OfficialPix offered a 2nd signing with McDiarmid I'd take it!

2-1B
11-27-2006, 06:41 PM
That's true, he is a very rare signer of SW merch because from what I've read, he'll sign your playbill in London after a show but he doesn't like to sign Star Wars.

Jayspawn
12-04-2006, 12:22 PM
Glad you got in on the signing too jonthejedi! Which photo did you get?

I recieved another order of photos from OfficialPix. One of Slave Leia to be signed later, another of C-3PO to be signed later and another of Boba Fett to be sent to Jeremy Bulloch. I think I'm gonna send him a trading card also. I'm torn between the Evolution and Evolution Update cards. They both look great!

I also decided to try sending out to Terence Stamp again. This time I'm gonna send a General Zod photo from Superman II.

Jayspawn
12-08-2006, 11:15 AM
Got a very nice email directly from Mercedes Nogh (Rystall, Jabba's Dancer). I ordered a signed photo from her site (only $15 shipped). Anyway she chatted and also asked if I wanted the photo personalized. Very sweet girl. I sent her a nice email back.

Jayspawn...I picked the posed studio shot of Sam Jackson wielding the lightsaber(I forget the #). I really wanted Ian McD...but that's too rich for my blood right now with Holiday shopping & bills. I might go that high for Ewan or Natalie. Most of the Offical Pix photos I select are the studio publicity shots(8x10). I love them for the costume detail, etc. Ironically...my autographs of Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee, James Earl Jones & John Williams are on black & white presskit stills I collected in the 70's & 80's.

Jayspawn
12-11-2006, 04:18 PM
I got the same Studio photo of Jackson. I also collect (mostly) studio photos to get signed. The timing wasnt right for the McDiarmid signing so I passed as well. If they offer another signing I'll probably get into it.

Today I recieved my autograph package from Alan Harris! He signed my OfficialPix photo and Evolution trading card I sent him. Very, very happy.

Jayspawn
12-17-2006, 10:55 AM
Yesterday I recieved my Tom Kane signed photo from OfficialPix! Tom does the voice of Yoda in Clone Wars. He signed "To Jay, Yes! Stong are you in the Force! -Tom Kane" It looks great! I hope OP does more signings with the lead voice talent. I'd love to get matching pieces of Anakin, Grievous, Dooku, Obi-Wan and Mace.

Jayspawn
12-18-2006, 08:04 PM
Just a heads up, Wattographs is going to have a signing with Ben Cooke, Kit Fisto in Revenge of the Sith!!!

Ben is an uncommon signer, and Gary and Scott will have a good deal for the signing. I'll post a link to the signing when its available.

I'm definatly getting in on this one!

I got my wish! Offical Pix(thank you, Ben) got Ian McD. to sign two more 8x10 shots(they're up for purchase, NOW). I missed out the first time around, so I made sure to grab one this time. The previous plaques & ROTJ 8x10 are sold out. Both these new shots are from ROTS(1 is studio shot w/lightsaber; the other image blowup from actual frame). Just an F.Y.I.

Jayspawn
01-03-2007, 03:44 PM
I got myself an Ian McDiarmid as well. I immediatly bought the ROTS Studio photo. I saw that and caved immediatly. After that, I realized they were $$ more for a signed photo then they were the last time! I have a little remourse now, but I'm sure I'll feel better after I get it.

OfficialPix has updated their website for upcoming conventions including Celebration IV: Guests TBA soon!

They started announcing guests about his time before CIII, so we should be hearing something.

01-08-2007, 09:18 AM
I'm kinda mixed on how I want that to turn out. Part of me wants a lot of people I have never seen so I can go out and get them in one swoop. The other side of mean hopes no one is out there since I really don't need to spend that kind of money.

jonthejedi
01-09-2007, 03:52 AM
Received my Ian McD. autograph from OfficalPix yesterday. Overall, I am not that pleased. Granted, the man's signature is what it is...but they could have given him a finer point sharpie to sign with. It looks more smeared than anything...and for $200 plus dollars...it just wasn't worth it(I even had to cancel some Sideshow goodies to afford it. That, mixed with the fact they raised his 8x10 price from $169 leaves me a little dismayed. I wish other A-list SW actors had the penmenship of Samuel L. Jackson. I sprung for it primarily because he doesn't do shows & lives in England, making his a hard autograph to attain.

Thats a lot of my reasons too jonthejedi. They should have given him a finer point pen to sign with. I went for it because I wouldnt get around to it if I didnt. I'm not wild about the price either -shouldnt have been that high BUT its a very hard signature to get so for that reason I'm happy.

Right there with you! I hope they get Harrison, who's loosened up quite a bit about autographs. I think the only way we're going to see Ewan or Natalie is if OfficialPix charges an astro. amount, and part of the proceeds go to the actor's favorite charity. That was the only way Halcyon Models got Sigourny Weaver's approval to use her likeness on the power loader model. Part of each sale went to her gorilla fund.

Jayspawn
01-12-2007, 03:56 PM
I already have Ewan's but if OP was able to pulloff a signing I'd probably still get in. Dont have Natalie's yet but I'd get in on that too if OP were able to get it.

Another update from OfficialPix. They will be announcing details on their CIV Autograph Program. They had a pretty good one for CIII, which I didnt get in on, but I will this time since my autobudget is going up some.

Jayspawn

OfficialPix is doing a signing with James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Clone Wars. They have 3 images to choose from running $29.99.

http://www.officialpix.com/estore/products.asp?cat=56

I'm getting in of course. I like the 3rd photo the best. Hope they are able to get some more signings with these guys this year.

Got back my TTM from Warwick Davis yesterday. He signed the photo and Evolutions card I sent him. He also included a typed letter informing me of his website. The letter was also personally signed. 3 for 2! Not bad at all!

In other news, some Celebration IV news! While OfficialPix has not officially confirmed their appearance it looks like Dave Prowse (Darth Vader), Amy Allen (Aayla Secura), and Nalini Krishan (Barriss Offee) have confirmed via their websites they they will be attending. Woohoo!!!

Awesome thread Jayspawn!

I'd like to start doing this with my 2 sons- We just sent off a VOTC figure to Peter Mayhew to get autographed. Everyday they sprint to the mailbox to see if it has arrived back yet! (it was sent three days ago!!)

Is there a main address list for the SW actors to send to?

Thanks!

Jayspawn
02-14-2007, 07:05 PM
Thank you SithM3! Welcome to the boards! SW Autographs is one of my specialties so I post whatever I'm up to right here -easy and accessible.

I recommend a GREAT website called Wattographs.com. Its run by a great bunch of guys. They have a store, forums, and a Database of a LOT of mailing address for Star Wars actors, artists, crew etc. I get my addresses from them. The Forums and Database are down at the moment for upgrading but should be back up hopefully within the next week. If you subscribe to the database for addresses -it is kindly expected that you submit your successes/failures (they both happen).

If you have any questions, news, or anything please post em or email me anytime. I drop any current signing opportunities here.

Jayspawn
02-17-2007, 01:12 AM

Jayspawn
02-21-2007, 07:17 PM
Today I recieved my TTM from Jeremy Bulloch! He signed the photo and trading card and even wrote a nice letter. The return envelope was also signed so that 4 for 2!

More C4 Guest announcements coming in the next week or so.

02-22-2007, 03:19 AM
So far I'm not blown away by the 1st list. As a non-attendee who already has autographs from the best from that list...I'm not missing anything & saving alot of $$$ by not going. I'll wait for these shows to return to Indy.

Jayspawn
02-23-2007, 12:25 PM
Sorry to hear that jonthejedi. They probably wont return to Indy.

Some people seem to think that this is about as good as its going to get. Sorry, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The list is gonna be twice as long!

I'd be a fool to miss it for sure. Already more than glad I'm going.

Jayspawn

Sean Crawford and Tim Dry didn't have 8x10 photos when I saw them a few years back, just FYI...they had these weird 9x11 or 9x12 deals going on.

That was at a small show though, so I'm sure that for C4 there will be official 8x10s there for the purchase. :)

Jayspawn
03-01-2007, 08:02 PM
Of course there will be. Here's a link to what the official pictures will look something like....

Alright, its been a while since I've posted. I've picked up several dozen autographs since the last post.

1st, pulled Richard LeParmienter (Adm. Motti) Garrick Haggon (Biggs) and Zach Jensen (Kit Fistco) autograph cards from SW Evolution sealed boxes. Didnt have the Motti card yet so thats nice.

Also: recieved some great autographs in the mail from Keira Knightly and Ewan McGregor.

And last but not least Celebration IV! WOW! Met tons of stars and got most everyone's autographs. Here what I ended up with....Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Jake Lloyd, Richard Bonehill, Jeremy Bulloch, Michael Carter, Kenneth Colley, John Coppinger, Dermot Crowley, Grey DeLisle, Nina Fallon, Anthony Forrest, Julian Glover, Garrick Haggon, Colin Higgins, Gerald Home, Zach Jensen, Tom Kane, Nalini Krishan, Ian Liston, Mat Lucas, Shannon McRandle, Tem Morrison, Rena Owen, Mary Oyaya, Ray Park, Bonnie Piesse, Tim Rose, Alan Ruscoe, George Roubicek, Andy Secombe, Orli Shoshan, Bruce Spence, Howie Weed, Matthew Wood, Dan Madsen, Steve Sansweet and Drew Struzan*

*I got Drew to sign my SW Style D poster. I later got a FREE ANH Speical Editon poster signed.

Jayspawn
07-10-2007, 12:11 PM
Today I sent out to Garrick Hagon and Corey Burton.

I sent Hagon a few Deleted Scene photos which I'm hoping to do multi signs of him, Anthony Forrest, Koo Stark and Mark Hamill.

And to Corey Burton I sent a photo of multiple Clone Wars characters, hoping tho get this one multi-signed too and a sketch of Count Dooku I did. Fingers crossed on this one.

Jayspawn
07-22-2007, 10:49 PM
Woah! Wattographs was able to pull off an incredible deal by securing a signing with composer John Williams! The openings they had are closed now but its very unpresidented to have the Academy Award Winning composer sign ANYTHING!

I dont have his signature yet but I got in on it. And the actual signing is supposed to take place in September. So I'm pretty stoked.

DTMAN
07-26-2007, 01:56 PM
Well, Official Pix will offer more Behind the Scenes sets as mentioned on the blog on July 20.

The CIV set for AHN was great! They plan to do sets for each classic film.
Can't wait to see what else they have.
Thank you.

07-26-2007, 02:21 PM
Agreed, its a very nice set with some great images An ESB or ROTJ set would be cool too. I wouldnt mind seeing Prequel sets either.

Who is Bonehill ?

Just a heads up: OfficialPix has landed a signing with Mr. Mark Hamill! Details over at http://OfficialPix.com Next week they are putting up an option to send in personal items for signing. NOW, the rub is the cost o $149.99 per signature.

BUT, he IS Luke Skywalker. Personally I think its a little high but I have this theory that he will only get MORE expensive. He is making less appearances and signings.

Unfortunatly for me, I have a few multi-signed items that DO need his autograph so I'm stuck with no choice.

Since this is apparently a poster thread . . . has anyone else seen the sweet-lookin' Sith Circus poster in the latest Insider? It's done in the style of the original 1978 Style D "Circus" poster, but of course with ROTS graphics. StarWarsShop will apparently be selling them in a set together (though it's not currently on there), and I've wanted the ANH one for a while, so I'll definitely be getting both!

Jayspawn

Hey guys . . . glad you're digging the new Sith Circus poster . . . I am lucky enough to have been commissioned to do all the type design on it . . . to say it was a dream come true is a massive understatement!

I've worked with Matt Busch for over 10 years as his web designer and have even created all the lightsaber effects for his "You Can Draw Star Wars" web tutorials.

What is pictured in the Insider is an earlier version . . . the final artwork has some tweaks here and there . . . keep an eye out for more on this collectable . . . it's going to be great!!!!

Enjoy!

Heads up! Theres gonna be another NEW signer for Wattographs! The name not revealed yet but it'll be a 1st time signer and it'll be from the Prequels. Who will it be? The popular vote is that its gonna be Joel Edgerton (Owen Lars) but knowing Gary and Scott, it'll be good Joel or not.

Make sure you are signed up for the Wattographs newsletter -where they will reveal the name!

If Oz uses secretarials TTM, then either they did it on the Topps cards as well or they're DAMN good because I can't tell the difference between my TTMs or the AOTC auto card I pulled. :)

Jayspawn
12-05-2007, 08:36 PM
No, the Topps cards are the real deal. The Oz secretarials are very good. He's signed real ones TTM in the past -but very rarely. So its possible he got a real one.

2-1B
12-05-2007, 08:38 PM
Do you have any idea on the timeframe for that, Jay? I got mine back in 2003, I believe. I'm really wary about secretarials (I have some obvious ones from A List celebs) but I'm really cautious about Star Wars related items...and the ones I have look identical to the Topps stuff. :)

I would honestly compare their similarity to that of my Jenna Fischer in person stuff vs. her TTM, which is definitely authentic. That will likely dry up down the road now that she's doing more and more movies and getting bigger status but that's not relevant to this thread.

Jayspawn
12-05-2007, 08:52 PM
If it was 2003, wanst too far away so its possible you got a good one. Oz is pretty good about signing in person but you wont see him at a sit-down signing anytime soon.

Just received a set of Imperial autographs from a scummer and they were all at a really great price ($5/autograph), plus he included 6 extra Celebration 4 pictures (not signed).

The autographs are: Autograph Cmdr. Praji (George Roubicek), Autograph General Motti (Richard LeParmentier), Autograph General Veers (Julian Glover), Autograph Lt. Renz (Barrie Holland - "You rebel scum" officer) and 3 Imperials photos: Tarkin with Motti, Vader and Admiral Piett. The other 3 photos are PT ones so not really interested in them: Watto and 2 Neimoidians

I will send the Admiral Piett picture to Kenneth Colley the actor to get it signed next week maybe. But have to get $5 somewhere for postal taxes to include in my envelope...

Jayspawn
02-01-2008, 09:04 PM
To their defense -they dont need to sign much.

The success with Ewan is hit or miss. The small signed photo of Ewan usually set out in response to requests are probably real. Theres no reason why he cant sit down and sign several at a time when hes at his office. However the jury is still out as its hard to authenticate his signiture -being that its just a scribble. The guaranteed Ewan in a signed book that he just published -which looks a lot like his occasional TTM responses.

OfficialPix is having an announcement, probably tomorrow. No hint on what it is.

And in other news, Wattographs is having 2 signings this month! Mike Quinn (Sy Snootles, Jabba, Ackbar, and of course, Nein Nunb) and Rohan Nichol (Capt. Antilles). They have several images available for each as well as the option for send-ins. Check out my link below for site and details....

Talk about exploiting the fans. I know Harrison rarely signs anything period but the price they are asking is just ludicrous. If I wanted to pay that much for his signature, I'd just break down and buy the SE Millenium Falcon studio scale. Now, if they had included roundtrip air fare to the signing and you got to meet him in person, have him shake your hand and snap a photo of the meeting/signing then it would be worth skipping the mortgage payment for.
