Synopsis: Dealer's Rooms and Star Wars EU Panel
Conclusions of Star Wars Extended Universe (EU) panel
All Star Wars books are now not canon and are being put under a "legends" category. Exceptions include those that appear in the cartoon series and the series itself. One new book of the new canon has been published, coming out Tuesday, called A New Dawn.
Chatting with Rebel Legion
Afterward, I got a chance to talk to Karyn, of The Rebel Legion and she gave me a Bespin Base badge. We chatted with a few other members, and later met Jake a second time in the Dealer's rooms - joint member of Rebels and 501st.
Raiding the dealer's rooms
I was dead after the panel, but I woke up a little after talking to Karyn and drinking a soda. John and I today split up several times while in the dealers rooms, to look things over more carefully. I purchased several nerd science shirts in the morning. In the afternoon, John and I found a cache of Wheel of Time shirts we hadn't seen and purchased many of those. Now, I have enough nerdom for a while to wear in the lab. I am most pleased.
James came by with Kenny, another friend of his, today, and I led them to Ally's booth in the dealer rooms, one of James's old friends from college. That was a fun meeting - she loved his tricorder - which he got on Amazon, he informed her. It looks quite legit and I love it too.
John and I left early - around 5 pm - and got food at the Sports Bar near the hotel and have packed our stuff. Tomorrow, we will be watching Robot Wars! I will not be in costume. Instead, I'll be wearing a nerd shirt. My feet need a break. And I'd like not to be sweaty for one day. More pics tomorrow!
