Pictures from London are appearing on the TOSblog Flickr account. Outdoor screenings and Opening Ceremony? So jealous! (Burning question: Was there cake?) We’re expecting reports on the TOSblog proper, too.
Mark over at Lightsabre wrote in to share the news that Gerald Home, who played two characters in ROTJ (Tessek aka Squidhead and a Mon Calamari officer) will be signing at the fansite’s table (D-74) in the dealers room on Saturday.

Meanwhile, over at the TOS, we learn of a few more guests (including Kenny Baker, Caroline Blakiston and Michael Culver) and that the Tattoo Competition and Illustrated Trooper are making another appearence at CE,
Well, advance tickets, anyway. So if you haven’t got your tickets yet, best order them now, or make plans to camp out at ExCeL…
Fans at CE will get a first look at the rough cut of Fanboys, along with a Q&A with director Kyle Newman.
