From StarWars.com: Gus Lopez and his team are planning a long list of reasons for collectors to take in every moment they can of the Star Wars Celebration VI collecting program. Similar to past Celebrations, the collecting panels and events will have something for collectors spanning all levels and interests. Of special note will be the unique and highly-prized items, created just for Celebration, that the group hands out at their panel presentations. From special medallions to Star Wars mini-cereal boxes, the group has created new items for each convention, and what they have in store for this year promises to be even more exciting than before.
