On this final day of Celebration V I have a huge recommendation for fans. Take the time to visit with author Todd DeMartino regarding his soon to be released “The Saga Museum: A Complete Photographic Guide to Star Wars Toys 1977-2008. This definitive two-volume set, weighs in at 15 lbs and 1100 pages and features amazing photography from Steve Bruno and a gorgeous layout by Jeff Correll. This is one book that every collector will need for their library of reference material. The Saga Museum is located in the main exhibit hall located at Booth #107 so be sure to stop by and pick up a high quality 8-page brochure while supplies last.

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.
