Stewart Stormtrooper

Earlier this afternoon at STAR WARS Celebration V in Orlando, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart sat down for a one-hour interview with STAR WARS creator George Lucas in what was billed “The Main Event.” Hasbro is proud and honored to create a special gift for Stewart, which Lucas presented to him during the event – a one of a kind (NOT FOR SALE) 3.75-inch Jon Stewart Stormtrooper action figure! The figure, which is packaged on a unique blister card, includes a removable helmet and two interchangeable heads sculpted in Stewart’s likeness – one with a clean shaven face and the other styled with Stewart’s recent goatee.

Celebration V: The Wait is Over!

In a few short hours, I’ll be jumping on a plane and heading east to “O’lando” for my first Celebration event. There will be a lot to take in over the next four days, but without a doubt, the best part will be hanging out with fellow fans and collectors from all over the country and the world. For those that aren’t attending, we’ll be updating the site here as time allows (as well as posting often on Facebook and Twitter) with images and news gathered directly from the convention floor!
