    Jun 7, 2013, 11:46 AM - Salt Lake City Comic Con 2013 -1st year Con for Utah #1

    Wondering if any RPF members are going?

    It is a 1st year Con for Utah, but since I haven't ever made it to a Con I have nothing to compare it to. The guest list is small so far, but not bad (and will hopefully grow) and it sounds like it should be fun for a small place like SLC.

    Here is the url:

    The guest list is growing every day -very cool. William Shatner and Ray Park (Darth Maul) are now coming. I am still crossing my fingers for Stan Lee

    I plan on going. I finally decided on a cosplay to attempt yesterday, so hopefully I'll be able to manage getting it all together.

    I'm always down for another road trip to Utah, to support the state that supports my right to carry...
    However being one week after DragonCon, I don't see how I could possibly make it.

    34 days to go! Probably a few more big guests to be announced, Jessica Nigri was just barely announced.

    Pretty sweet line-up for a first year con:
    William Shatner (Captain Kirk), Adam West & Burt Ward (original Batman & Robin), Adrian Paul (Highlander TV series), Dirk Benedict & Richard Hatch (Starbuck & Apollo from original Battlestar Galactica), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Lou Ferrigno (Original Hulk TV Series), Manu Bennett (Spartacus, Arrow, Azog from the Hobbit), and Ray Park (Darth Maul).

    I noticed that Stan Lee is booked for Baltimore Con (Saturday and Sunday).. maybe there is still a small bit of hope that he could show up for Thursday but I'm not going to get my hopes up too high.

    Announced today that Weta (Lord of the Rings, Hobbit etc.) will be visiting the Salt Lake Comic Con. This is their first time in the U.S. besides the San Diego Con.. Very cool news Weta brings Middle-earth to Salt Lake Comic Con 5-7 September!

    Also, David Prowse (Darth Vader) is officially coming now too..

    Big News!

    I would love to build an R2 someday as finances allow.. Hope to see you at the con. Would be really cool if you can get some photos of yourself and R2 with the 3 Star Wars guests coming.

    My wife and I will be there. I'll be spending a lot of time at the Rebel Legion booth, they're sharing their booth space with me and some other R2 builders (aelfinn you've got a PM). My wife is organizing the 501st Droid Hunt. Be sure to stop by the 501st booth on Thu or Fri and pick up your Droid Hunt badge, then play in the Droid Hunt on Saturday!

    I just noticed that the Vendor List is up on their website -didn't realize the 501st was on the list until I saw your post. Looks like its the Alpine Garrison, but will there be some Timberline mixed in? I will definitely be dropping by the booth (#1125 according to the Vendor List). I didn't see the Rebel Legion booth listed, is it part of the 501st booth space?

    Yep, a few Timberline members will be making the trip down and helping the Alpine Garrison out. As I mentioned there will be a droid hunt as well as a blast-a-trooper. The RL and Mando Mercs are organizing a jail-and-bail as well.

    Not sure why the RL isn't listed, I'll have to check with their person and find out.

    Awesome! And looks like "Krayt Clan Mandalorian Mercs" is next to them in booth 1121. I'm getting very stoked. I hope the Con announces that the 501st will be there via Facebook and/or their website -I only found out from this thread and that is a piece of information that needs to be shared.

    I hope you don't mind, I shared this with my wife to pass on to the Alpine Garrison's SLCC planning committee.

    Yep, the Mandos and RL are organizing a jail-and-bail together.

    Can't wait to see y'all there!

    Don't mind at all -I'm very excited. This is my first Con, and I've always wanted to meet and learn more about the 501st, rebel legion etc. It seems like such a cool thing that you guys are able to spread the awesomeness of Star Wars and be able to provide help for great causes and charities. Nothing but respect for you guys.

    I came across another group that does similar work but is Salt Lake City based called H.E.R.O.I.C. They are in booth #1021 (They costume for charities etc but do more super hero stuff, although I think they branch out into Star Wars and other sci-fi stuff). Just passing along info that you may find helpful/interesting.

    Thanks! I've been 501st for 9 years now, and it's been a very rewarding experience!

    I'm familiar with H.E.R.O.I.C., I know a guy who dresses as Batman with them. Haven't met any of the other members of the group (I don't think) but they seem like an awesome group as well. I also think there's a Ghostbusters group in Utah that does charity work as well.

    So far we have 5 astromech droids on tap to be displayed at the Rebel Legion booth! Be sure to come by and introduce yourself!

    Be sure to visit the 501st Booth on Friday and get your droid hunt badge, then play along on Saturday!
