I'm going to try a new tact this year. I'm going to walk down the queue until I find one of these morons, and offer to give them the tot that they want once the panel is over if they give me the space in the queue so I get to see the panel, which is the bit I'm interested in.

I love the tots, but would much rather see the panels.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

I asked a couple in front of me to stop talking to each other through one panel a few years ago as I couldn't hear. They said they were only there for the tot and had no interest in the panel talks. They did shut up at that point though.

I see them more as a souvenir and memory for me going. These jokers think they are gold and want to flip them. Almost as bad as the celebration store pins. Anyways.. May follow what Ben has suggested.

Not sure it's gonna be possible to queue for every panel this time.....will just concentrate on the ones I'm interested in and the tot will be a bonus on top.

rob.. my rule of thumb last time in anaheim, was for the smaller panels (not the stadium ones) was to get there a couple of hours before. For saturday just choose panels and a queuing strategy and largely ignore the shop floor. It was insane there that day and you could barely move and I'm not exaggerating. Trying to look at stuff was pointless. Shop on the thursday. Hopefully get a few conversations going with the stall holders to see if they have anything in the car/van thats a bit tastier. Some bloke last time didnt think a box or 7 of vintage lower grade mocs would have much interest..

They are good quality, look neat and make a set. Unfortunately many are then sold at a premium on ebay.

Star Tots are cool, very much appreciated, but if you don't want to hear the panel then you shouldn't be there.

Because Star Tots are awesome, obviously. :) Honestly, they're entirely done by collectors. We're the ones designing them, working with the manufacturers to produce them, paying all production costs, arranging with LFL to license them, paying to ship them from place to place, spending dozens of hours assembling them before the convention, and even more to hand them out to collectors. Free of charge. I've literally spent the last 5 hours today working on spreading the word about them. That's just *today*. And my reward for that is literally 1 set of Tots. That's it. And there are jobs in the project which are much, much more labor intensive than mine. So, that's a LOT of work to put into them, with very little actual benefit to us other than making people smile. If nothing else, I like to think that people appreciate them for that. They're a very expensive to produce and very time consuming to design/distribute collectible which is absolutely free. That's a rare thing in the world of Star Wars. But, again, they're also awesome in their own right. I've always thought they were the coolest exclusive around. And I genuinely mean that. I'm still pushing the other Chairmen to okay a Droids Kea Moll Star Tot at the next Celebration. :)
