A lot of focus for Celebration 5 is on what will be there, such as George Lucas, Jon Stewart, lots of cool artists, and Frank D'Iorio leading members in making a Hoth Diorama, but with all of this there are a few notable absences from the upcoming Celebration. On this week's Star Wars Action News, Marjorie and Arnie round up all the Celebration 5 news of the week, both of what has been announced will be at Celebration, and what (or who) will not.
Also this week, we bring you up to date on all the latest Star Wars collecting news, with new releases online from Sideshow, Funko, and Gentle Giant, and a rundown of where you can order the upcoming Hasbro Legacy collection Vintage-style figures NOW! As well as a look at a recently revealed vehicle exclusive, and more details on the upcoming giant AT-AT.
With a discussion of the digital Insider subscription model, more on Her Universe girls' tees, and more, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast!
And as of this writing there are only *10* tickets left to the Star Wars Action News/Yakface party at Celebration 5! Don't miss out, order your tickets now!
And if you're getting into Celebration on Wednesday, Arnie and Marjorie will be MCing a Star Wars Trivia night at Heroes Landing in Clermont at 7pm with all proceeds going to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society!
