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."
