I wonder if they need a stand-up comedian who does a 10-minute Star Wars set?

They have one, but as I understand it Lucas is not in attendance.
Seriously, I attended one of these events a few years ago. Very expensive - basically a huge SW shop with guests. Mark Hamill was charging 70 for an autographed photo, and there was an hour and a half wait.
I did consider queueing, but as I already had his autograph from 1980 (which was free back then) I decided not to in the end.

I don't like it when they charge for autographs. I can kind of understand it if they are are not making movies anymore and need the dough...but come on. It's a bit of a rip off to the fans. I mean 5 or 10 dollars I could accept but not 70.

Love those apes as tie fighter pilots - very clever.

Yeah, Slate. Considering the cash I've spent between 77 and around 89 on merchandise I feel a little angry at such high prices for autographs. Some of the actors are really great to talk to, others, just want the line to move along as fast as possible to maximize their take.

After the prequel movies I took a step back from SW. Now Disney's involved along with JJ, I'm not holding out much hope for a return to the magic that dominated cinema with the like of SW and Empire.
