One of the highlights of every Star Wars Celebration fan convention are the collectors panels. If you were unable to attend, or simply want to see the panels again, you can now watch all of them on YouTube. One of our favorite panels is the "A Star Wars Collectors Journey" by Gus Lopez. You can watch all the panels here:
Here is a video which we live broadcasted from Disney's Hollywood Studios special event titled "Star Wars Galactic Nights". In the video you'll see Vanessa Marshall (the voice of Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels) interview John Knoll and Alan Tudyk.
Here are some pictures of booths selling Star Wars action figures during Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017. We spotted an original Early Bird Kit for $14k and several Kenner 12Backs in the $1k range. Overall there was a lot of cool stuff to be found at Celebration this year, some sellers even had a wide range of modern prototypes and pre-production pieces.
Hasbro's Star Wars panel during Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 was one of the better Hasbro Star Wars panels in recent history. The Hasbro team celebrated 40 years of Star Wars action figures by taking a look at many never-before-seen concept sketches from the mid 1980's and they revealed many design decisions and thought processes for up-coming Star Wars action figures. The panel ended with the reveal of the return of the 3.75" The Vintage Collection in Spring 2018 and the fan vote campaign.
Here are some photos which we took during The Last Jedi Panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando in 2017. Guests included Josh Gad, Kathleen Kennedy, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Rian Johnson and Kelly Marie Tran.
Here are some pictures from the 40th Anniversary Panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017. The people on stage included Warwick Davis, George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Billy Lourd, Peter Mayhew, John Williams with the Orlando Symphony and Kathleen Kennedy.
ReedPop has released information about how to get the exclusive Hasbro 40th Anniversary Collection 6" Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) figure, and it isn't pretty. In order to purchase a Hasbro Exclusive on Thursday and Friday, a limited number of tickets will be given out.
There will be a special morning queue for those who want to receive a Hasbro Exclusive ticket in the morning. Please look for Queue 10 and the sign that says “Tickets to Purchase items from HasbroToyshop”.
Tickets for the Hasbro Exclusive will begin to be given out at approximately 6:00 AM on Thursday and Friday. After receiving a ticket for the Hasbro Exclusive, fans can join the regular Celebration Experience Exhibition Hall Chutes.
You cannot get into the Hasbro line to purchase anything at their booth without a ticket on Thursday or Friday, regardless if what you’re purchasing is the Hasbro Exclusive or not. On Thursday and Friday the only fans that can shop in the Hasbro booth are those with tickets.
On Saturday and Sunday, tickets will not be required to shop at the Hasbro booth.
Not sure why Hasbro thought this is a fair way to distribute those figures, especially with two major panels happening on Thursday and Friday morning with thousands of people expected to camp out over night.
Also, what else will Hasbro offer for sale? Maybe the first wave of 6" 40th Anniversary Collection figures? Will we see wave 4 of 3.75" Rogue One figures? Stay tuned to JediBusiness.com for updates!
