Each day of Celebration Star Wars collectors can enjoy talks on a startling variety of topics at the Collecting Stage, currently planned for room 201AB in the Convention Center. The following four panels have been added to the official Celebration website.
Presented by Brian Stillman
Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys is a documentary about you guessed it Star Wars toys! Through interviews with former Kenner toy designers, experts, and collectors the film explores the history, cultural influence, and magic of our favorite collectibles. Dont miss this special 40-minute excerpt of Plastic Galaxy, edited especially for Celebration Anaheim. Then join director Brian Stillman and collector Gus Lopez as they discuss the making of the documentary and offer exclusive behind-the-scenes insights.
Star Wars Comic Art
Presented by David Mandel
This year marks the triumphant return of Star Wars to Marvel Comics. First published back in 1977 as a way to promote the film, Star Wars comics have been published almost continuously since, unitizing the skills of some of the best names in the comic industry to create a series of beloved tales. From Howard Chaykin to Al Williamson, from Travis Charest to Adam Hughes, every Star Wars comic starts with pen and ink on a piece of illustration board and these original drawings have become increasingly collectible. Come hear and learn all about collecting original Star Wars comic art with collector and Curb Your Enthusiasm writer/director David Mandel, with special guests.
Elite Character Focus Collecting
Presented by Bill McBride, Skye Paine and Bill Cable
Character focus collecting is a popular method by which enthusiasts assemble impressive runs of production and prototype action figures of a single character. We will discuss character focus collecting that reaches beyond the toys, delving into the realms of everything from cookware to original movie props. From the impressive to the eclectic, please join us as we share the sorts of items only an obsession will hunt.
Great Stories of Star Wars Collecting
Presented by Chris Fawcett, Mattias Rendahl and Tommy Garvey
Rocket Firing Boba Fetts, cases of vinyl-caped Jawas, fantastic eBay auctions, an abandoned Death Star, and collectibles owned by the Queen? Join Chris Fawcett, Mattias Rendahl, and Tommy Garvey as they tell some of the best and most interesting stories of the past 35 years of Star Wars collecting.
