A Quick update here...
the trials will be at the party, which means at night and so the Costumes won't get so hot to wear ;)
here is the message over on MR's forum
Dear Force FX Combat Trials Combatant-
Thank you once again for entering the Force FX Combat Trials
competition and for your patience as we compile a comprehensive
schedule of events for Celebration IV. After much deliberation and
discussion, we have some good news and we some bad news regarding the
Force FX Combat Trials.
First, the bad news ? due to unforeseen complications and events
beyond our control, the Force FX Combat Trials will not be taking
place at the Los Angeles Convention Center during Celebration IV.
And now, the good news ? the Force FX Combat Trials will be taking
place at the Master Replicas Collectors Society/VIP Party on the
evening of Sunday, May 27th at the Jim Henson Studios. This means
that all entrants (plus one guest) are now invited to attend the
exclusive Master Replicas party, where they will be able to perform
their routines for their Padawan peers!! And, as originally planned,
celebrity judges ? provided by our friends at Official Pix ? will be
on hand at the party to score your performance!!
The Party will take place from 7:30 - 10:30 pm on Sunday, May 27th at
The Jim Henson Studios
1416 North La Brea Avenue
Hollywood, CA 90028
We sincerely apologize for this scheduling change ? as noted before,
the switch is due to events beyond our control. However, we are
pleased to be able to invite all contestants (and their guests) into
our very exclusive party, for this unique opportunity!!
Please bear in mind, the Master Replicas Celebration IV party is SOLD
OUT, and so we cannot accomodate any additional guests beyond each
contestant and their plus one!!
Of course, if you are not able to attend the party, we regret that you
will not be able to participate in the Combat Trials. As a special
thanks for entering ? and as a consolation for not being able to
perform ? Master Replicas will be sending you a special gift in the
next few weeks. Please notify Master Replicas (at
firstname.lastname@example.org) as to whether you will be able to
attend on or before 12 noon PST on Friday, May 18th. If we do not hear
from you by this time, we will assume that you will not be attending
Thanks again for your interest the Force FX Combat Trials, and we look
forward to seeing you in Los Angeles!!
The Master Replicas Force FX Combat Trials Council
