The 501st Droid Hunt (sponsored by Del Rey Books): Pick up your complimentary "Droid Badge" at the 501st Experience room (while supplies last) and prepare to be caught and interrogated by Imperial troops as they compete against one another to recover as many "stolen droids" as possible. Some fans will receive a Jedi Mind Trick card to extend their gameplay, but everyone gets a prize just for playing! Complete rules available at 501st.com/droidhunt and at the 501st information booth.
Locations: Badge pick-up at 501st Experience room. Gameplay throughout convention center.

Troop-Athlon: In the tradition of the historic games that make heroes out of some and humiliate others, the 501st puts an Imperial spin on competition between its own costumed members as we ask the question "What can't you do in armor?" Returning for Celebration V is the 501st Legion Troop-Athlon! The Troop-Athlon pits fully armored troops from around the world against each other in a head to head test of their athleticism, accuracy, and mental acuity. Bring your cameras to this family friendly event: there will be plenty of blaster fire, flying ewoks, and Stormtroopers on Segways!

CV Celebrity Host and 501st Member: Actor Jay Laga'aia will serve as Celebration V's Celebrity Host, entertaining fans and fellow celebrities alike with his charm, wit and musical talent. Jay officially joined the ranks of the 501st in 2009 with his own Stormtrooper costume. As he prefers to remain anonymous in his white armor, you may be unwittingly taking your photo with Captain Typho in the convention halls so listen for the trooper with the Kiwi accent!

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
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).
