The Stormtrooper pictured above is only one of many figures being given away to fans attending the Celebration in Indianapolis this May. Essentially the line will see re-released versions of the original twelve Kenner figures (Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, R2 D2, C 3PO, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Obi Wan, Sandperson, Jawa, and Death Squad Commander).

The Creator?s Series sees these figures remade and packaged on cards even more retro than the Toy Fair Vader. The only true difference is the addition of George Lucas? autograph printed over the logo.

The figures, while supplies last, will be randomly handed out to everyone entering into the Celebration. The line is in a limited production of 1977 of each figure and, unlike the Toy Fare Vader, there is no current plan to release any left over stock to the Fan Club. Making them a perfect collectible for everyone attending.

To prevent scalping and hoarding, the Celebration organizers have set up a secret registration that will prevent attendants from aquiring more than one single figure. Though they won't say what they have planned, they promise everyone who shows up early will get a Creator?s Series figure.
