CVI Coverage: Rancho Obi-Wan Experience

One of my personal highlights from Celebration VI was the walkthrough of the Rancho Obi-Wan Experience booth prior to the exhibit floor opening for the day. There were so many rare, unique and one of a kind items on display (one of which being handcrafted Yak Face figure) it required multiple viewings to take them all in. Check out this 80 image gallery to experience Rancho Obi-Wan for yourself.

Thanks to Steve Sansweet for not only bringing the exhibit but also for the taking the time for a brief chat and acceptance of one of our CVI Badge and Coin Pin sets.

Star Wars in 3D Updates

Star Wars fans will be looking at a busy fall in 2013 with both AOTC and ROTS receiving the 3D treatment, as both films will released in theaters again, this time just a few weeks apart!  Attack of the Clones will be released on September 20th, 2013, and Revenge of the Sith on October 11th, 2013. 

For all the fans of Hasbro’s toy line, could squeezing these two films so close together spell disaster?  Share your thoughts on how this could impact the hobby after the jump!
