Star Wars Actors Hit Dallas Comic Con Fan Days with Official Pix

What originally started out as strictly a Star Wars event, Fan Days has become something of a pop culture show held each October at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas. This is one of three different shows we put on in the Lone Star state each year. Our media guests range from Star Wars to Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica to The Walking Dead, Back to the Future to Lord of the Rings and everything in between from both film and television.

This past October 4-6, we had a great lineup of Star Wars talent for attendees to meet. As usual, I had each guest into the Official Pix autograph office during the show to sign for us on a variety of items in varying numbers. Personally, this is my favorite time with our guests. It’s quiet, the A/C is cranked down, there’s an ice-cold water station and comfortable chairs making it one of the more pleasant locations.

Each Star Wars Celebration is different for a variety of reasons. This rings true in everything from the guests and panels to the exclusives and special events. These differences are why fans keep coming back again and again, to experience a new and exciting time every few years all while celebrating something we all hold so dear to our hearts…Star Wars.

At Official Pix, we have the unique and challenging task of bringing cast and crew from the live-action films and The Clone Wars animated series to each Celebration. It’s a job, yes, but one that has some very rewarding moments mixed throughout the weekend. For example: Escorting Ian McDiarmid across the Exhibit Hall floor to browse the vendors, Artists’ Alley, and the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience, or spending 45 minutes to an hour with each autograph guest to do massive signings for our customers on a variety of items. Though in Germany, there was one instance that stood out above the rest and it has everything to do with a princess from Alderaan.
