The Star Wars Diorama Workshop, a fixture at Star Wars Celebration events since 2002, is celebrating its tenth anniversary by producing the largest ever diorama display featuring a Return to Tatooine. But rather than just building a Mos Eisley diorama like a decade ago, this year’s version will feature the entire planet spread out over 400 linear feet of tables, and covering both the original and prequel trilogies.
The Celebration VI Store is offering a Pre-Order T-Shirt featuring Yoda that will be shipped in advance prior to the event. Orders will be shipped in late July and this exclusive t-shirt will not be sold on site at CVI.
Sideshow has posted a slew of photos of their Celebration VI Commander Ganch. This highly limited Sixth Scale figure, based on the the Tom Hodges Clone Wars comic series from Dark Horse, will be sold at the Celebration store beginning August 23rd with limited quantities to be made available at SideshowCollectibles.com shortly after the show concludes.
Reedpop, the event organizer behind Celebration VI, has revealed the first exclusive for the show from Sideshow Collectibles! The Sixth Scale Commander Ganch is the first of over 70 items to be offered at the Star Wars Celebration Store.
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.
Star Wars Celebration VI, the ultimate fan experience and the biggest Star Wars party ever, will feature three stages of programming offering hours of exclusive entertainment and fascinating information focused on the past, present and future of Star Wars. The stage hosts for the four-day event, held August 23-26 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida are James Arnold Taylor, David Collins and Pablo Hidalgo.
StarWarsCelebration.com said it best:
