BIGGER, BETTER…AND ALL ABOUT YOU

Like the Empire’s second Death Star, Celebration VI is shaping up to be even BIGGER than all previous
iterations – and also like the second Death Star, it’s all still under construction. That means that we’re still planning the programming, the panels, guests, special events and activities, and we want to hear from YOU to help make this the best Celebration yet! What do YOU want to see?

Be sure to follow us on  Facebook and Twitter to let us know what you think.

Celebrations are for YOU, the fans, whether you saw Star Wars when it first premiered or you’re just now exploring that galaxy far, far away for the very first time. So send us a tweet or write on our wall. We’ve got more than a year until Celebration VI, and we’re going to build it together! When completed, this ultimate Celebration will spell certain fun for Star Wars fans across the galaxy.

We thank you for all your support and passion. It’s the fans who have sustained the Saga for all these years, and – come August 2012 – we’re excited to welcome you back to our galaxy. 

May the Force be with you!

SDCC 2011 Exclusive #5: Hasbro Star Wars Revenge of the Jedi 14 Figure Death Star Set

San Diego Comic Con, which unsurprisingly sold out in a single day this year, traditionally has many exclusive items that fans can only purchase at the show. As part of New York Toy Fair, Hasbro has revealed that their Star Wars exclusive item will be a big one: a 14-figure set in Death Star themed collector’s packaging.

The figures will be a selection from this years vintage line, printed on rare Revenge of the Jedi card backs. While these individual figures will be available elsewhere, the variant card backs will be hard to find in the wild.  For those not familiar with the story, Return of the Jedi was originally slated to be titled Revenge of the Jedi. Late in production, George Lucas decided to make the change to a more lighthearted name given the family friendly nature of the film, but initial runs of merchandise were already printed with the Revenge name. This pieces have always been a favorite of collectors, so the alternate card backings are a tip of the hat to these fans.

This complete set give collectors an opportunity to save themselves a lot of work chasing these down on store shelves, but it also comes with an added bonus. In addition to the twelve publicly-released figures, there will be two mini-figures available only in this boxed set: Jabba’s pet henchman Salacious Crumb, and the tiny buzzing Mouse Droid shown in Death Star scenes. To further solidify this set’s awesomeness, the large cardboard Death Star packaging looks beautiful.

 

The full contents of this set will include:

•  Luke Skywalker
•  Han Solo
•  Darth Vader
•  Princess Leia
•  R2-D2
•  Boba Fett
•  Admiral Ackbar
•  Stormtrooper
•  Wicket the Ewok
•  B-Wing Pilot
•  Tie Fighter Pilot
•  Rebel Commando
•  Salacious Crumb
•  Mouse Droid

 And lastly we have the Ewok moon of Endor for Return of the Jedi.
