Rumors have been swirling for months in Transformers and G.I. Joe circles, and the event will be in September within walking distance of the Omni Hotel, at Dunkin Donuts Center. There's a decent mall nearby with a movie theater, food, pants, and all the things you'll usually want to kill time or hide accidents at a show.
Via Twitter - the anniversary gets missed by a month, but at least there's a party:

I'm a big fan of Diamond Select Toys' vinyl banks - they're pretty cheap, pretty nice, and pretty sizable in an era where things are getting more expensive and smaller. At C2E2 in Chicago this weekend, they'll be selling an Exclusive Star Wars 1:4 Scale Jawa Vinyl Bank. The regular version has a droid caller, the convention exclusive version has a blaster. As a roughly 11-inch tall vinyl bank, it's pretty hefty for the asking price of just $22, particularly considering the low edition size of 250! See the full picture after the jump.
StarWarsCelebration.com said it best:
"After the impressive (most impressive) success of last year’s Empire-themed Star Wars Celebration V, we are thrilled to announce that the biggest party this side of the galaxy, Star Wars Celebration VI is setting down August 23-26, 2012 back at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida!"
