C3 Tickets Available September 27th

Posted by Mike | September 23, 2004 at 01:01 PM ET | has posted more info on ticket sales for Celebration 3. Info on pre-registering for tickets, and prices, as well as info on a special gift when you pre-register for the 4 day pass. That gift being a special "topper" with the Vaders helmet on it. There will also be 3 other toppers available at the convention.
     It also seems that this year they worked out some of the flaws of C2. One being that family members, at C2, could not partake in some of the special fan club events. This was because you only got one fan club lanyard for each subscription, and many people went with their families, thus their family members were left out in the cold when it came to events that needed the lanyard for entry.

    500th Figure to be Ultimate Vader?

    Posted by Pete | September 01, 2004 at 01:20 PM ET |

         You have heard the rumors in the past, and here is one more to hang your hat on, this time from the French language site
         The basic jist of the article states that they believe that this version of the Dark Lord of the Sith will be a deluxe figure that includes his personal meditation chamber. They think that Hasbro will be making a decision soon as we are surely near that incredible #500 mark. Who knows, maybe it will be a little teaser early next year in preparation for Vader to return to the big screen!
