Rebelscum celebrated five years of publishing Star Wars collecting news on November 20, 2001. While the page was around before the first news was posted, it's really the news that filled, and continues to fill collectors' needs. On November 20, 2001 we had one heck of a Rebelscum giveaway drawing!

Back then the site was a solo operation run by Philip Wise and was known as "Philip's Star Wars Pictures, Toys and Thoughts". Quite a bit has changed since those early days - the site has been redesigned, renamed, and now has a staff of seven dedicated Star Wars enthusiasts.

Between Adam Pawlus and Mark Hurray, they answered over 1,500 collector questions in our Q&A column and our polls have had over 175,000 votes tallied on 101 topics since the beginning. Rebelscum's support of the customizing community continues with the Customs Listserver in operation even since before this anniversary, October of 1996. It spawned the popular customs website FFURG.com and we are nearly to 150 weekly Custom Figure Critiques, never missing a week since we started almost three years ago. And finally, the collector's Collect To Collect Code Of Honor is proudly displayed and linked on countless collecting websites, helping to educate people on exactly what a scalper is.

Besides all this, one thing has remained fairly constant, however, and that would be our giveaways, of which there have been well over 200 winners since our first on January 31, 1999.

Who remembers the live webcast of the Theater Edition Jedi Luke contest? How about the "Win It Before You Can Buy It" Episode One Battle Droid giveaway? Over the course of the years Rebelscum has handed out tons of Star Wars loot, some of it nearly impossible to get, including complete sets of Special Edition movie passes, limited-edition LEGO Star Wars bricks, countless Bo'Marr Monks and Muftak/Kabe two-packs, Wal-Mart POTF figure posters, and more recently the popular Ultarama Display Systems.

In honor (honour) of our anniversary we decided to hold a Anniversary Giveaway Bonanza! Thanks to our Anniversary Celebration Sponsors, and Rebelscum Staff, we got more cool prizes than you can shake a gaffi stick at - and rather than simply handing them out at random, we drew names to determine a picking order. That's right, the first name drawn got to pick first from a veritable treasure chest of loot! You can always count on us to do something a little different... The name drawn second got second pick, third got third pick, and so on until we reached the bottom of the cargo hold!

So, what is included in this Anniversary Giveaway Bonanza? Check it out:

Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
