Bring your items to sell or trade or add some new stuff to your collection. From new to vintage, rare prototypes and more, you never know what you'll find After Dark!

Celebration Europe: Showcase Your Unique Star Wars Collectibles

Posted by Paul | June 27, 2013 at 11:05 PM EDT |

Have an awesome vintage item? Maybe a really cool limited edition Star Wars collectible? We want to see it! Bring your treasure to the Collecting Track room (Halle Ruhr) and show it off before hundreds of other collectors during the three days of the show. Your collectible must be small enough to fit into a standard counter-height display case and it will be locked up while on display. While you’re at Celebration Europe, make sure to stop by and view what promises to be some truly amazing treasures. If you're interested in showcasing your Star Wars collectibles at Celebration Europe, please contact Marjorie Carvalho at marjorie@swactionnews.com. Please note that Celebration Europe will not be responsible for lost or stolen items.

Our friends at MintInBox.net are proud to reveal their Celebration II exclusive. They will be offering six Bounty Hunter sketch cards with images clearly inspired by Gentle Giant Ltd.'s Mini Busts! Check out this beautiful array of scum and villainy!

CVI: Star Wars: Detours (The Next New Star Wars Controversy)

Posted by Paul | August 26, 2012 at 03:38 PM EDT |

We went to the Super Secret Star Wars Panel with Seth Green and as you've heard, a new Star Wars animated comedy show is coming; Star Wars: Detours. While it was indeed funny (and the panel was even better with Special Guest George Lucas showing up), we bet the show will end up being more controversial than anything else. See what you think!
