Not sure WTF the site is doing with hotels thus far. This banner was in my email today from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim & is not showing on the site as with the countdown timer for tickets.  ::)



With past Celebrations in Orlando, the Rosen Centre was the host hotel. 2 major hotels are close by the Convention Center, the Marriott & the Hilton. Guessing the Hilton will be the host hotel as a tad closer. Still a few other hotels close by those those that are on the budget & no doubt will cram members in the rooms to keep the costs down.

Overhead view of the Convention area. Disneyland just across the street top.



A couple online brochure grabs of hotels in the area. Not the best & will add a link & list of hotels close by.

I am looking for someone in the LA area that can pick me up 2 Space shuttle Endeavour patches from the California Science Center store. I don't want to use eBay as they are going for more than what they are worth. There are two types of patches, woven patches are $4.99 a piece & the fully embroidered version are $7.99 a piece. Just need 1 of each.

Any help on acquiring these for my space collection will be very grateful. 

I am just a PayPal click away for these. Shoot me a PM if you can help out. Thanks.  :)

Celebration V: Orlando / Collector Panels
« on: May 30, 2010, 10:30 AM »
Once again at Celebration, Gus Lopez is bringing back the Collector Panels with new & exciting panels on vintage & modern collecting. Looking forward to these & whatever the exclusive collectibles will be for the randon give-aways.

Animation Collecting: The Holiday Special to The Clone Wars
From the Star Wars Holiday Special, to the Droids and Ewoks Adventure Hour, to The Clone Wars television series, animation has played a large part in expanding the stories of the Star Wars universe. Join collector Shane Turgeon as he explores the animated history of Star Wars, discusses the differences in traditional and modern animation, and covers the wide variety of animation art available to both the casual and experienced animation collectors of all eras.

Food Collectibles
Food collectibles represent one of the largest, oldest, and most diverse categories of Star Wars treasure hunting. There have been over 10,000 different food-related packages, premiums, and store displays from hundreds of promotions in over one hundred countries. Food collectibles can be challenging to track down due to their short lifespan and national, or even regional, differences. Most fans are familiar with recent promotions from soft drink and fast food companies, but who knew that there were Star Wars promotions for hot dogs, peanut butter, cheese, mustard, fish flakes, and even dog food? Come see examples of obscure food collectibles from all over the world in this fascinating panel presented by Jonathan McElwain.

The Empire Strikes Back in Trading Cards
Cathy Kendrick and Andy Dukes celebrate thirty years of collecting The Empire Strikes Back on cardboard, paper, and stickers. This presentation will explore the many trading card and sticker sets created around this film from 1980 through today. Tips on collecting and enjoying these unique collectibles will also be discussed.

The End of Star Wars Collecting?
Shrunken heads, baseball cards, trolls, stamps and coins, Beanie Babies, Star Wars... There are thousands of collecting hobbies. History has shown that all hobbies follow a predictable evolutionary path ending with their disappearance. The only difference is how quickly that inevitable end arrives. What does the future hold for Star Wars collecting? Is the end near? Or will Star Wars buck the historical trend and last forever? Collectors Martin Thurn, Charlie Marcus, Elling Haug, Isaac Lew, and Mark Salotti will draw on the wisdom and experience of three generations of Star Wars collectors to offer answers these questions and more.

More will be added as we get colser to Celebration.

The key is in awesome shape & has never been removed from the plastic sleeve, limited to 750. This one is not marked like other printer proofs, it is blank. When I picked it up awhile back, the person mentioned it was 17PP tho no markings of this number is on the key that I can see.





I am asking $100.00 US (which is par right now) plus shipping. I take Paypal & the gift option is the best.  ;)

Please note that I am from Canada & shipping will be what Canada Post asks.

If you have any questions, please drop me a PM.  :)

Thanks.
