    FACTS 2006 News

    Posted by Pete | August 07, 2006 at 08:31 PM EDT |

         We’re still dealing with our SDCC hangover and the next event is already coming up! FACTS, the biggest convention in the area of the Benelux is arranging its programme … the place to be will once more be the International Congress Centre in City Park of Ghent; we’ll give rendezvous during the weekend of October 14th and 15th.
         Fans will be happy to hear that the first Star Wars guest who was announced is none other than Anthony Daniels, probably known better under the name of his alter ego: the whining protocol droid C-3PO! We have it from a good source that he’ll still get some Star Wars company; more announcements will follow later. Autograph hunters will have a happy day … if you cannot make it to the event, note that Mark from www.BountyHunter.be is taking orders for any and all autographs that can be scored at the convention. If you want a tad more information already, follow the link sitting underneath the button here or surf to www.FACTS-convention.com for all details.
