This is all you want to know; there wasn't anything new today. With no show exclusive and a scaled down presence for Celebration VI, Hasbro was remarkably low key for Day 1. Yet Hasbro Star Wars brand reps were engaging inquiring fans in other ways such as demonstrating the various features of the new MTT and diplomatically answering questions about distribution, which quite frankly, has reached its saturation point from a reporting point of view.
Depending on where you sit as a fan, the merchandising at Star Tours is either the best thing ever or something giving you a little toy anxiety. (Hi, Ron!) This year at Celebration VI, Disney previewed Droid Factory, new Star Wars Muppets, Vinylmation, and-- get ready for this-- Star Wars Disney-Pixar Cars. Yes. Darth Mater.
Check out the latest pre-order and in stock items from our sponsors at BigBadToyStore.com including the new RAH Darth Vader 2.0 and Sideshow's 12" Mos Eisley Cantina Environment.
Do you have what it takes to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? See if you can track down this unique patch set available exclusively at Celebration VI! Six members of the Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) have joined forces to create its first ever puzzle patch set, which when assembled represents the shape of the Millennium Falcon. The set is approved by Lucasfilm as an exclusive for Celebration VI and is strictly limited to 300 sets.
It’s literally only a few days to Star Wars Celebration VI and everybody is either on their way or already enjoying the Florida sun (and occasional rain). This month, we catch up with Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com to talk about their sold out party with Star Wars Action News on Thursday night, we also check in again with Frank Diorio about the latest updates regarding the Diorama Workshop.
Even before the end of Star Wars Celebration V fans were starting to look forward to the next time they could get together with friends, Star Wars fans, from around the world. That's because no other event or convention offers the programming, the exclusives, the events, and the excitement Star Wars fans find at Star Wars Celebration. And this week it's finally here--Star Wars Celebration VI!
Every now and again, some of our favorite action figures have a patron saint. Nho'Apakk was one such figure, although the news of his patron isn't so rosy. Find out why this figure rocked, and some sad news when you read on.
While not quite a figure, but way cooler than just an accessory, this year's SDCC exclusive Jar Jar Binks in Carbonite is a real oddity. You can sort of see it in The Force Unleashed, it has a great sculpt, but it's a little small to fit Jar Jar. Yet it's one of the most compelling items of the year.

Or-Lando system here we come!

Join Adam and I for our own unique spin on things and we may even spring a surprise or two. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter as the Celebration VI coverage and fun begins tomorrow!
Our sponsors at Entertainment Earth posted two new Star Wars Monster Mash-Ups from Funko! If you haven't seen these before, and we haven't, you'll be delighted to see the Jawa Reaper and Tusken Mummy. Check 'em out after the jump!
Who says there’s no such thing as geek swag? It’s been five years since the Marc Ecko Cut & Sew brand first released its epic line of official Star Wars full-zip hoodies. And for the fifth time in a row, it’s no surprise that they are flying off the shelves like an X-wing out of the Death Star.
Q&A is off this week. That's the good news. And what's the bad news? More good news! We want you to submit your questions for Celebration VI. We'll do our best to research and answer them, if we can.
