Yesterday, Cullyn and I were having a fantastic day at the Baltimore Twilight Convention when it was time to gather for the much-anticipated auction session. During the auction, Creation Entertainment offers Twilight Saga items ranging from action figures to the coveted convention banners for fans to bid on and take home. At the last LA TwiCon in March we scored a great deal on a Volturi banner ($70!) , so we were primed for bidding battle!
After about 15 minutes, the host/auctioneer decided it was time for a Robert Pattinson banner to go up for auction. For the prior banners, he threw in an autograph ticket so the celebrity guests at the Baltimore event could sign them...making the items even more valuable! When talking about the RPatz banner, the auctioneer casually said, "Unfortunately, Rob is not here to sign it, but he will be at our Century City event." The Breaking Dawn Convention on 11/4 - 11/6 is being held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in the Century City area of Los Angeles!
Surprisingly, there wasn't a huge reaction from the crowd, which made Cullyn and I look at each other and ask, "Did we just hear that?" Then someone from the back of the room yelled, "Would he sign it there?" At that point, we knew we heard him right. (BTW - the auctioneer did not respond to that person's question, and no autograph ticket was provided.)
Earlier in the day, the host/auctioneer asked if anyone was attending the LA event, and we were only part of a handful of people to raise ours hands (and cheer). Plus, there weren't a ton of people in the auction session. So, we attributed the lack of reaction to the Rob news to those two things.
Also, there was no mention of Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner attending the Breaking Dawn Convention, but that doesn't mean they aren't gong to be there...just that the auctioneer didn't say anything about them.
So, we are super psyched! Of course, this comes with the caveat that Summit has not confirmed this news!
