Mayhew is good...wish he was a bit more social. Logan is awesome, no doubt. I hope that Daniels doesn't personalize everything put in front of him, or else Disney will get an earful from me. Its not that I sell everything I egt signed, but I dont care for things personalized to me. Its just my thing.

I cant wait to hear who the other guests will be...very excited.

Daniels will personalize, he has done it to me the last 3 times that i have seen him. and the last time was on my episode 2 movie poster that no one else had personalize. and could he look at it and see that everyone else had just signed it..even rick m when he was there did not personalize it... i was pissed that he did and i asked him not too... i hope that he doesnt do it this year...but im not gping to hold my breath...

Ive got a bad feeling about this...im already starting to think how i could fix that, if it happens...if he signed on the bubble on an action figure with your name, maybe some rubbing alcohol would quickly take off your name as soon as you got out of line...or you could just be rude and insist you have no name when you meet him...i guess ill just have to ask a CM on what his signing habits are before i get to him...i even emailed his site with this "problem" with no reply...

I've met Anthony Daniels at several Celebrations and several times at SWW. I've never had a problem with him signing any of my pics, but I've always had him sign professional photos of C3PO that I ordered from officialpix.com. I will admit that he was more picky and cranky at Celebration, because not only does he get paid for the autograph, but also to go stand in line afterwords and get paid for photos, so when people were snapping free photos it made him angry. Im my experiences, he has never insisted on personalizing any of my autographs (some are and some aren't), though as I said I've never asked for posters or figures to be signed. I've heard many horror stories about him through the years, but he always seems more relaxed at SWW signings, than at any conventions I've seen him at. As far as Mayhew goes, he is GREAT! but he is actually the only one that I've ever had issues with during a signing. I wanted to get my nephew an autograph and he refused to personalize it a for me a few years ago, he would only sign his name to keep the line moving. Maybe he was just having a bad day, IDK. Anyways, good luck to all of you.

We are not searching for autographs to sell them or anything like it. We have this 2006 Star Wars calendar and every year we take it to all the celebs to sign, all of them have even Mr. Mayhew and Mr. Prowse.It's basically a nice memento for my kids to be able to look back and see all the signatures we were able to collect. We would just like to add Mr. Daniels to it. I think I'll just talk to the CM handling his autographs to see in what type of mood he's in before waking up in the wee hours of the morning to get a FP.
Last year I had a Chewbacca picture that I was sending to a cousin who is a big fan and Mr. Mayhew didn't personalize it even when I asked, but he did this very politely. I wasn't offended or anything is just his personal choice.

In Peter Mayhews case I think it is easier for him to keep everyone happy if he keeps it simple and keeps the line moving. He does a very good job of trying to accomodate everyone. Daniels is a mystery to me since I have not had the pleasure, but it sounds here like we've heard similar things. My goal is to keep an open mind and hope he signs the poster I intend to bring. I'll keep my C3PO stress ball (head) in my pocket just to deal with anything unexpected. ;)

I'm just hoping that Mr Daniels is having a good day when I see him...Having had met a number of actors/actress over the years,I think that Mr Daniels is the most picky one that Ive met..But on a plus side I cant wait to see Ray Park again,he is such a sweet heart...

Cant wait for star wars weekend...

I am disappointed to see that Anthony Daniels will be back. He was there for our very first SWW visit. We got up really early, like so many others and waited and waited and waited. We were very excited about meeting him, but that excitment quickly vanished when our turn came. I found him very full of himself. Not friendly in any way at all. He would NOT sign my disney autograph book.

Last year, we had a lot of fun getting to meet Temuera Morrison, Daniel Logan and Jeremy Bulloch. Not that's a line up and they were so fun too. I would love to see any of them again. My son Lowell caught the Mickey hat that Temuera tossed into the audience at Stars of the Saga. We had already gotten his autograph earlier that day, but he seemed truly excited to sign it for Lowell and Daniel Logan was so funny, he had to put the hat on because it had belonged to Temuera and he had to sign it too. What a fun day.

I'm hoping that the line up I saw listed is just a rough draft. It's starting to look like they need to change the name to Clone Wars Weekend.

Oh Queenofthehouse...

That's scary...I figure, between myself and my fiance, we have a total of 10-12 times, IF I want, to get to hollywood studios and get Anthony Daniels autograph, just because I have that many things I could have signed by him. I have one thing I truely want signed, my animated clone wars poster. I realllly dont want my name on it. I swear Ill tell him I dont have a name.
Why on earth did he not sign your autograph book? What a loser move. I wonder why a castmember didnt step in and REMIND his highness that he is being paid by disney to be there and SIGN AUTOGRAPHS..

As far as Daniels "having a good day", I garen-darn-tee he will be inside in the air conditioned Sounds Dangerous studio where Billy Dee was last year, and the Wookie will be out in the blazing sun again...

I am very interested in getting an idea of what he HAS signed in the past and what he HAS NOT or refused to sign. A Disney autograph book is a big suprise to me. I have a poster signed by Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill that I would like his autograph on as well. I'm not concerned so much with personaliztions but rather want to understand what will and won't fly with him.

Perhaps some more meditation is required on this subject. Anyone who has been turned down for an item or has had success, please share.

Oh boy..."I have a bad feeling about this"..

But, it's like this...what is he really going to do? Refuse to sign a poster, on this huge day with the re-release of star tours, and with HOW many other folks behind you? I dont know why he wouldnt sign a trading card, but i cant imagine him refusing ANYTHING, for the most part, during his stay for SWW.

But, I guess these are questions for the castmembers that walk the line in the early morning.

I have a Star Wars Storybook from 1977 and Anthony Daniels didnít question signing it. Yes, he signed it to me, but several of the other autographs in the book are personalized, so in this case it wasn't an issue. And, he was charming. I seem to have inherited this gift from my mother. He told me a story about the original C-3PO shoes (they kept breaking and constantly had to be replaced) and to look for the ship (the Tantive IV) in Revenge of the Sith. I get the feeling that he likes to be appreciated.

Now, this was several years ago. The autograph stations were still located on Mickey Avenue, so it pre-dates Toy Story Midway Mania and it pre-dates the release of Revenge of the Sith.

This year, Iím planning to bring my Clone Wars Storybook and Iíll see if he will sign the page with C-3PO. And if not, then not. Iím not going to let things I cannot control get in the way of the fun. (I had to decide that, itís been sort of a long winter. :P

Dear everyone attending SWW

While you all go nuts over what should be an idea for its own theme park instead of having to invade DHS once a year, I will be in the area, but at the Orlando International Fringe Festival (I know, what a shock). But I would like to get a T-shirt from the park during SWW as my own was ruined by a pen leak in the wash. I'll pay whomever purchases an official SWW T-shirt from DHS. I have Paypal.

I don't think it's fair for CM's families who want to enjoy the reopening of ST2.0 It's only blocked out for that first weekend not for the second one (May 27-29) also the June block out dates haven't been posted.
This is not good news for me as my AP expires in April and my husband was going to use his main entrance pass to get us in...now I just need to make him understand of the importance of going to that first weekend and maybe I'll convince him of renewing our AP's. The Force works in mysterious ways
