Six Groups Celebrate CVI with an Exclusive Patch Set
Five Star Wars collecting clubs along with the Celebration VI Collecting Track will mark Celebration VI by giving away sections of an exclusive 6-piece patch set. When assembled, the pieces form a Clone Wars themed movie poster. The poster features characters from all six movies of the Star Wars saga along with characters from The Clone Wars TV series. The clubs participating in this project are the Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC), the Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club (OSWCC), the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS), the Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance (SWGFA), the Seattle ARea Lucasfilm Artifact Collectors Club (SARLACC) and the Celebration VI Collecting Track. Lead designer Bill Cable of PSWCS conceived the idea for the patch, and completed the design with substantial assistance from leaders of the participating groups.
We have set up a time to meet with Hasbro for a one-on-one interview/QnA session immediately following the Celebration VI presentation on Friday, Aug. 24. Beside the obvious, where are the figures? and distribution questions, what would you like us to ask them? We only have 10 min with them so not every question submitted can and/or will be asked, but you can post your question(s) here in comments section, on facebook or in our forums for consideration.
Our friends and party co-host Star Wars Action News have revealed their exclusive CVI badge(s) today via Facebook!
