I think this convention must have folded after 2006, I can't find any up-to-date info on it. Can anyone else help?

If you're talking about the convention - no, it was quite a good one, actually; they managed to get Dave Prowse and Kenny Baker to come to several of them.

Luke looked kinda cute in Jedi. I think it's the cybernetic hand and the angst that does it for me.

Hi BlakesSpirit,

I'm one of the founders of the Exewing group, who put the Star Wars Days on in Honiton.

Thank you for the kind words, we even got the Liberator and Orac to one of the events, courtesy of Mat Irvine!!

We were always lucky with our guests, I think due to the charitable nature of the conventions they always seemed very obliging, every single one of them was absolutely fantastic.

The event didn't fold, so much as come to a natural end!

Some of us had been doing it non stop for ten years, the events towards the end were taking the best part of six months to organise and promote!

Also, with the very sad passing of our Honourary President, the late great Michael Sheard and having raised over 40,000 for various charities, we thought we'd make Star Wars Day 10 our last.

Within our limited means there really was nowhere else to go with the event, Day 10 had over 1000 attendee's, about 12 guests, various original prop and costume displays from Dr Who, Blakes 7, Firefly and Aliens, etc, etc.

We thought we'd go out on a high and dedicated the event to Michael.

The group goes on and we are hoping to do something again, probably a Dr Who orientated event.

Sounds like you came to one or more of the events, thank you very much for your support and hopefully we'll see you again in the future!

Cheers,

Andy.

As for the poll, where the heck is Obi Wan Kenobi??

Ewan Macgregor, surely a hands down winner in the cute department!



Cheers,

Andy

I tried to put him on, but the poll wouldn't allow any more choices!
