After seeing Anthony Daniels at the Stars of the Saga show, I agree with others who say he is a jerk. He's self absorbed and just came off like a real jerk with his jokes that weren't funny and frankly mean spirited. When he has the attention to himself, he's okay but I hate to give him any attention than he really needs.


Really? That's surprising. I saw Stars of the Saga the first day and he seemed relatively normal. I thought his solo show was actually the best of the schedule that day.

that's because he was talking about himself...no but really, I have from people who have met him during the autograph session that he is really nice and chatty. That's nice of him to take time to talk to people I just wish he would sign anything

I think Glenn said it best. When it's just Anthony as the focus, he's nice enough. But when he has to compete with other SWW celebs, the jerk comes out.

Daniels was exactly what the worst case scenarios suggested he would be. Hi personal show was entertaining, but highly self absorbed. I'm sure he would suggest that the show was about him, so of course he acted that way but it was even more than that. He was irritated by anyone video taping or photographing the session. What, someone is going to buy that video?

The autograph issue was over the top for me. I did get a fast pass to meet with him and I let it expire once I learned I would just be getting his mug on a standard black & white pass out photo. Of all my experiences at SWW, his was the biggest dissapointment, not that I wasn't warned. It would have been nice though for Disney and Daniels to have worked out this issue prior so people would have known about it. He apparently didn't tell them what he wouldn't sign until that day. With his reputation, you would have thought that would have been settled long ago.

The figures are available for ordering. They're $100 each. I ordered mine and she said I was the first to call. There's also some neat artwork on the link below. I'm debating on Mickey Won Kenobi

Disneyland had the Darth Goofy, Donald Maul, and Jedi Mickey X-Wing sculptures. Mickey was a no brainer especially because I hadn't started collecting Star Wars Mickey big figs yet when the original X-wing was released. I decided to get Donald and Goofy because the only reason I didn't get the original Donald Maul big fig was size, and since I like Goofy better than Donald, I had to get him as well since the sculpture was really cool. I think I'm glad I did't know about Minnie and Stromtrooper Donald until now so I didn't have to agonize over not completing the set.

Here's a note regarding the shows at the Premiere Theater. Forgive me if someone has already posted it.

On weekend 4, I wanted to be sure and see most of the shows at the theater. I got to the queue for the afternoon Stars of the Saga show a bit later than I wanted, and found that the Muppets queue was completely full and the line extended about two-thirds of the way up the block from the San Francisco backdrop. The CM working that area said that they hadn't had crowds that large yet, so they didn't know if we would even make it into the theater. (The capacity, I believe, is just over 1000.) As it turned out, there were plenty of seats available when I entered the theater. It was about 3/4 full. So in the future, if you see a very long line, don't worry, you'll probably make it in.

The show was great, with host James Arnold Taylor joined by Ray Park and Peter Mayhew. Peter was in a wheelchair due to knee surgery to repair damage cause by a fall in Detroit. When he was introduced, Chewbacca appeared with light wands (like at an airport) directing the person pushing Mayhew's wheelchair into position. It was a riot!

Later in the Q&A portion of the show, Chewie came by to ask a question. He then sat in the aisle just a few feet away from me, giving me the opportunity to take this awesome photo.
