  • SWCVI: Why I Love Star Wars Fans

    If you were around in the ’70s, there’s no way you could not be aware of Star Wars, and in the summer of 1977, I saw A New Hope on the big screen at least sixteen times. I bought the novelization, I bought the comic books, I read the newspaper strips. I was a fan.

  • SWCVI: The Holocron Keeper at Celebration

    It has been five years since I last attended attended a Star Wars Celebration and I am more excited than ever to be making the trip to Orlando this year. With the big event just around the corner, here are some of the places you’ll definitely be able to find me.

  • Star Wars things you probably don’t remember

    Star Wars Celebration VI is approaching, and I’ll be there, doing panels and a number of signings for Dark Horse and Del Rey. I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of appearances immensely. Working in my office at Faraway Farms at the end of a dead-end road in Wisconsin traveled only by deer and other ungulates, I’m […]

  • SWCVI: Willow & Daley: Two of My Favorite Subjects on Day 2

    Now where was I? Ah yes, ticking down the list of panels I’ll be hosting at the Behind the Scenes stage at Celebration VI. Day One’s been chronicled, so let’s move onto the Friday at Celebration. Since there appear to be no rules against playing favorites,  I will do so. I mean it when I say […]

  • SWCVI: Where I Know Everybody’s Name

    Here’s my confession, and my no longer secret shame: I am a niche geek, a jack of very few trades. I love Comic-Con because there are about a billion things to see, and because even though it gets insanely crowded, the jammed-up throng is nearly always remarkably cheerful and patient about being stuck somewhere while […]

  • SWCVI: Is It Time For Your Checklist or Mine?

    Where’s the checklist? Do we have the patches, t-shirts, geek shirts, fedora, 501st badges, books, signage for The Peter Mayhew Foundation…..jeans or shorts, did we find Katy’s airbrushes…how’s the cat, the dog?? Is everything in order for Shoot A Trooper? Are you taking the wheelchair? Of course, too much walking otherwise…gotta pamper those knees…gotta wheelchair […]

  • The Celebration That Almost Wasn’t

    It’s hard for me to believe that we are almost upon the sixth Star Wars Celebration! Every few years, fans look forward to the mecca of Star Wars events and this year’s convention is shaping up to be the best ever.

  • SWCVI: My first step into a larger world…

    I attended my first Celebration in May of 2002, Celebration II in Indianapolis, IN (that was actually the first event of that type I ever attended). I had a blast! The attendees were all so enthusiastic about Star Wars and were very friendly to me. What a place to be… all Star Wars: fun activities […]

  • SWCVI: Family Room Fun

    I’m Kristen Hidalgo, and I’m planning the activities for the Family Room at Celebration VI. This is my second time doing it and I’m really excited about it. Celebration V was a blast and we have even more planned for this year. My idea for the Family Room is pretty simple–I want Celebration VI to […]

  • SWCVI: We Call Her Roxy

    As a member of the 501st Legion’s Florida Garrison since 1999, I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in dozens of trooping events throughout the Sunshine State. And out of all of those memorable dates, none has stood out so much in my mind as Star Wars Celebration V two years ago. When I found […]

  • SWCVI: Looking Ahead to Day 1 at the Behind the Scenes Stage

    With the release of the Star Wars Celebration VI programming schedule this week on the Celebration VI Mobile App, fans everywhere have begun sketching out their plan of attack for the biggest Star Wars party of the year. Planning my schedule is easy: I’m going to enjoy the show from the Behind the Scenes Stage, […]

  • SWCVI: The Art of Ralph McQuarrie

    It sounds like a cliché, but when it comes to The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, preparations for the next Star Wars Celebration pretty much begin on the flight home from the last one. Despite having exhibited at all seven prior Star Wars Celebrations, Celebration V was a particularly challenging undertaking for us. For the first […]

  • SWCVI: The As You Wish Helmet Project: Boba Fett

    I could talk for days about Boba Fett, his popularity in modern culture, his mystique and his infamy, but my true passion for Boba Fett, as with so many things in Star Wars, is not so much the character of Boba Fett (after all, he was little more than a minor background figure with only […]

  • SWCVI: Bounty Hunters, We DO need your scum!

    Hello! I’m James and I’m one half of the brains behind the Bounty Hunt atStar Wars Celebration VI. My friend Dan and I have been organizing photo scavenger hunts and puzzle races for several years now, and we’re bringing all our fiendish fun to Orlando. We think that the Bounty Hunt is great for Star […]

  • SWCVI: Star Wars Tattoos: A Celebration Retrospective

    My first exposure to the addicting world of Star Wars tattoos came from the same likely source as many other people’s first exposure – Jon Bradley Snyder’s short but eye-opening article entitled “Skin Deep” in Star Wars Insider #26, published in the summer of 1995. I was young, too young to get tattoos of my […]

  • SWCVI: The As You Wish Helmet Project

    Star Wars: Celebration V was an amazing experience for me as it was my first Celebration.  I have attended dozens of conventions but none have compared to the magnitude of a gathering that is 100% STAR WARS!  Years ago, I had seen the Vader Project, online, and was very impressed by it, but hadn’t thought […]
