I'm the Media Chair for the Celebration VI Collecting Track, and we have some news we'd like to get out to the community. In fact, we have a bunch of announcements to make, so any help you could give us by posting it on your site would be appreciated.
Firstly, we would like to release pictures of more of the Star Tots we will be giving away at our presentations. They are 2" tall, flat die cast enameled characters, based on the unproduced Star Tots toy line from 1979. We will have 20 different characters, one at each of our presentations. I have sent pics to your email.
We would also like to announce that we are seeking submissions for our display area:
"Here's your chance to share an unusual item from your collection at Celebration VI. The Collecting Track social area will feature a locked professional display case to highlight items that collectors do not often get to see. The focus is not about value per se, but oddities that exhibit the rich diversity of items that people can collect. Whether it's a toy exclusive to Spain, a cereal box from South Africa, or a hat made for cast and crew members, the goal is to feature items that will spark attendees to say, "Wow, I've never seen that before!"
Because of space constraints, single items should not be much larger than 1-2 large shoe boxes. Small collections of items will be considered if they can fit into a similar size space, but groupings of items should be based on some unifying theme (e.g., food collectibles, watches, Australian items, etc.) and visual presentation will important.
To be considered, please contact Todd Chamberlain at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 10."
As well as announce the Social Area:"The Star Wars Collecting Track is better than ever at Star Wars Celebration VI with the addition of the Collector's Social Area!
Organized by Marjorie and Arnie of the Star Wars Action News podcast, the Social Area gives Star Wars collectors the opportunity to network with other Star Wars collectors, learn more about the collecting hobby, and get autographs from authors of books on collecting.
The Social Area will feature collectible roundtable discussions led by collecting experts from across the globe. You can meet other collectors from your area and join a collecting club! Listen to live podcasts about Star Wars collecting from Star Wars Action News, the 'Chive Cast, and This Week in Star Wars! Meet the owners of some of the most popular collecting websites, and more!
Plus, on Friday night in the Social Area, the underground hotel sales come to you with the Star Wars Collectible Swap Meet! Held in the Social Area, bring some of your Star Wars items to trade! Find the one figure needed to complete your collection, or that one-of-a-kind item you can't live without.
Stay tuned for a full schedule of events, and be sure to stop by the Collector's Social Area, room W304."
