Got to meet him at Celebration 5 with my kids.  It was the year they released the Jumbo figure for him at the convention and every day I went, they ran out because they were letting the convention people purchase them before we got there.  So I paid the mark up rate and bought it so I could get him to sign the card.  He was a nice guy.

Let's not forget, he also played the imperial who used Leia as a meat shield when Luke first gets to Bespin - 2 roles in 1 scene. Not sure if any other actor can claim the same for the entire OT. RIP.

I met him at Niagara Falls Comic Convention a few years ago. I was getting some autographs for friends - wish I'd gotten one for myself now too! He was such a warm and friendly guy, with a great wit and sense of humour. He took the time to chat for a couple minutes, making loving jokes about his wife. It was great to meet both of them.

RIP Mr. Bulloch - the Original Mandalorian!

It would be neat if Disney was able to edit a note in to tonight's episode in his honour.

I met him a couple of times over the years, super nice guy. The last time I met him, I was too late to his table and he had sold out of his book. He commented that unlike Americans, Canadians like to actually read. When he would bring his book to the US conventions they didn't sell. In Canada, he would always sell out.
