Fans attending Celebration Japan will have the opportunity to collect 12 two-inch pewter medallions commemorating classic Star Wars toys released in Japan in 1978.

Here's a small blurb from the Celebration Japan website.

"The collecting panels, scheduled to start each day at 2:00 pm Saturday through Monday, will feature great information and discussions for serious collectors, as well as entertainment and fun for those who love popular culture and Star Wars. Thanks to the help of dedicated sponsors, attendees at the panels could one or more of the extremely limited, exclusive give-aways.

The solid pewter medallions, designed by artist and Star Wars collector Jeff Correll, feature imagery based on actual Japanese toys, and were designed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars in Japan.

"This pewter medallion give-away is limited to 350 of each," says Lopez, himself an uber-collector of Star Wars treasures. "They will be distributed individually to audience members at the twelve different panels."

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
