First Panel Descriptions:
Each day of Celebration Star Wars collectors can enjoy talks on a startling variety of topics at the Collecting Stage, currently planned for room 201AB in the Convention Center.

Ewok Collectibles Beyond Return of the Jedi
Presented by Amy Sjoberg and Jarrod Clark

Celebrate the love as we discuss domestic and international Ewok collectibles that were released after Return of the Jedi. Surprisingly, while 1984-1990 had little to offer to Star Wars collectors in general, Ewok collectors had plenty of reasons to rejoice. With examples from Ice Capades, Disney parks, cartoons and Ewok movies, this merchandise might surprise you.

Collecting 501st, Rebel Legion, and Other Fan Club Collectibles
Presented by Ken Tarleton

Learn about collecting and trading fan club creations, including patches, coins, trading cards, pins, t-shirts and lots of other odd and fun club-related treasures. We will focus on the 501st and Rebel Legion with a mix of a few other clubs who create unique items for their members. Learn how to obtain these sought-after collectibles and how to join one of the clubs as well. We will show some of the lesser-known items and share some surprises, as well as recommend what you should be hunting for at Celebration Anaheim!

Ever wonder how to make an ounce of aluminum worth is weight in gold? Put a Star Wars logo on it! Join Gus, Will, Mark and James as they review the basics of Star Wars coin collecting, discuss recent market trends and shed light on the inner workings of how the Power of the Force coins were developed and produced.
