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.
