Dewback Patrol: Sunday Photo Gallery Live!
Thank you to all!While I've attended every Celebration but the very first, this was indeed an amazing journey. I would like to thank every single person who made it such a great time for both me and my son. The staff at ReedPop and all of the volunteers really went all out to make sure each and every person had a quality experience. We would also like to thank the five outstanding partners that are featured on the "Death Star" patch set, and Arnie & Marjorie Carvalho for inviting us to be a small piece in something that was so special. The Celebration store was pretty bare, the chalk mural was jaw dropping and the Return to Tatooine Diorama was the best yet! For more check out the Sunday photos that includes all of the cool swag I brought home. Stay tuned to more coverage from Celebration VI!

Team bring it!It took a bit of time in the bacta tank to handle day number two of Star Wars Celebration VI, but with a little help from my friends I was able to recover.

Mos Eisley News Brief: The Force Has United!
For the first time at a major Star Wars event, a group of fan sites will be working alongside each other to help share the fun and excitement of Celebration VI with their worldwide audiences.

The Force United, which features eight fan sites, will be at Booth #450. The founding sites are,,,,,, and

Because of the prohibitive cost of having individual sites staff their own tables full time during the show, the sites came up with the idea of forming an umbrella organization that would share time at one booth as they currently share some Star Wars news among sites. Lucasfilm agreed to the concept, and The Force United was born.

Each day during the show each site will staff the booth for roughly an hour. During that time fans will be able to pick up one of nine limited edition trading cards, one for each site, that make up the image below. The 9th card features the logo of The Force United along with the names of all eight founding sites. Signs at the booth will post hours for each site’s presence. There also will be limited edition badges and buttons for Celebration VI as well as a very limited supply of patches.

Any Star Wars fan site owner who is interested in becoming one with the Force—The Force United, that is—can send an e-mail to or talk to us at Booth #450 during the show.

Fan Sites Unite at Celebration VI in the Star Wars Collectors Social Area
"When Star Wars collectors want to find out about the latest and greatest toys, statues, and prop replicas hitting retail the primary sources of news and reviews are not corporate owned web sites, but sites run by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans.

While one might expect competition among the various sites, each trying to scoop the other, the truth is the owners and reporters from many sites are friends who see each other annually at conventions, Toy Fair International, and of course Star Wars Celebrations. Now at Star Wars Celebration VI, six of these fan-created web sites have joined together to bring an exciting new collectible available in the Star Wars Collecting Track Social Area!

In the Social Area six Star Wars fan sites, Jedi News, Jedi Temple Archives, Sandtroopers, Star Wars Action News, The Star Wars Collectors’ Archive, and Yakface will be hosting “meet the fan site” sessions where site visitors can meet the men behind the web sites--and get an exclusive patch from each site.

Each site will have an exclusive patch given away only during the meet-and-greet, and if you collect all 6 patches they join together to make a larger patch--much like how the sites are united in their fandom of Star Wars and their love of collecting! Each patch is limited to 500 pieces and will be given out on a first-come-first serve basis during the meet-and-greets. Additionally, a small number of full sets will be given away in the Social Area during the convention! Follow @C6CollectTrack on Twitter during the con.

The meet-and-greets will be held in the Collectors’ Social Area, a new addition to the popular Collecting Track for Celebration VI. In addition to this exclusive patch giveaway, attendees can sit on roundtable discussions, get collecting books autographed, meet other collectors as well as other great activities. Come on out and meet a fan site and get an exclusive patch - only in the Star Wars Collectors Social Area! The times for each site will be posted soon."

Bring some collectibles that you are willing to part with and see items from other Star Wars collections! Make a trade, work a deal, and find that item that has eluded you for so long! The Star Wars Collectors' Social Area is in room W304. Set-up begins at 5pm for those bringing collectibles to sell or trade. Selling is limited to just a handful of items per person though (what you can carry), so collectors should plan accordingly."
