Duncan Jenkins' presentation on Humorous Star Wars Items is back! And with so many new items added to Duncan's updated repertoire, Star Wars fans will both laugh and groan at some of these humorous collectibles released over the years. For many, the concept of a humorous collectible is not readily obvious. But some of the best attention-grabbing collectibles are the ones that make collectors smile, laugh, or think "I can't believe they made that!" From Jabba the Hutt on a Peach Melba Yogurt Cup to six-foot Ewoks On Ice Skates, the Star Wars collectibles universe has had some very funny licensed items. For a look at some of the best Star Wars inspired, humorous collectibles, check out this panel, and don't forget to wear your Boba Fett Underoos. Star Wars Collectibles Author Panel
Star Wars collectibles books have covered a wide range of material including posters, prototypes, tattoos, action figures, rarities, and price guides. For the first time ever, this panel gathers some of the leading authors of Star Wars collecting books to discuss their work, give a glimpse of what goes into researching and creating a Star Wars collectibles guide, and field questions from the audience. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from some of the best: Shane Turgeon, Anne Neumann, Pete Vilmur, Duncan Jenkins, Gus Lopez, Steve Sansweet, John Kellerman, and Todd DeMartino.
As a very special bonus, those who attend the Collecting Panels at Celebration V can look forward to receiving exclusive collectibles dreamed up by Lopez and his team. The Collectors' Panel give-aways have become one of the hottest "must have" items at recent Celebrations, and this time around it will be no different.
