Star Wars Celebration IV – Los Angeles, CA
by Chuck Paskovics & Pete Hauerstein
May 24, 2007

May 24th quicklinks:

Celebration IV is upon us! CIV kicks off with the fan club day, dedicated to members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club. With the doors opening at 12 noon, the line wrapped as far as the eye could see! The hot item to get wasn't at the dreaded Celebration Store, nor at the Gentle Giant booth. Fans quickly made their way to the booth to try to secure the very limited animated cartoon deco Boba Fett Maquette. The line quickly balooned into a mess, causing frantic Gen Con folks to break up (and anger) some fans hoping to score this hot item. Handing out only 300 today, many fans left empty handed, while many exhibitors, who had access to the room before the doors opened, walked away all smiles. Rumor has it they will hand out 100 more each day for the remaining 4 days. Let's hope the exhibitors save some for the fans who line up at 4am this time.

Once the hour-and-a-half fiasco was out of the way, the lines were pretty much a thing of Celebrations past, with all of the other booths having offered pre-orders for their products. I even bit the bullet and walked to the dreaded Celebration Store, expecting a line like Star Wars fans are used to when going to the Celebrations Stores... but wait! Not only was there no line, I walked smoothly through the whole store, from entrance to checkout, without waiting a single extra minute! While there were a few sold out items, such as the highly limited McQuarrie print, I was able to find most everything just fine! Kudos to finally getting the Celebration Store right!

We capped off our evening with our sold out SWAN/JTA Dinner Party! Fans from all over the world got together to mingle and have fun!

Now, on to our galleries for day 1, and don't forget to check out the dedicated Gentle Giant, Hasbro, and Sideshow Collectibles gallery pages!

Kotobukiya was on hand to show off their latest products, including the very cool McQuarrie concept kit! They also had the Obi-Wan vs. Grievous set, an Utapau Clone Trooper, and some nice concept art work for what looks like a diorama display of an X-Wing Fighter! Check out the images below for all the details!

The LucasArts booth had a nice array of games on demo, including a contest pitting players against each other...on the retro Star Wars games from the 80s! While nothing new on the Force Unleashed game, they did have a nice promo poster to needlessly tease fans. And, fans of the LEGO Star Wars game will be happy to know that there will be an upcoming game that puts all 6 LEGO Star Wars chapters into one game!
