We’re heading to Star Wars Celebration this weekend and for those that can track me down, I’ll be giving away a few goodies. There will be two new SWCC fan badges and like Yak Face himself, they’ll be tough to acquire, especially the chase variant. You can only obtain this version via following us on Twitter and watching for our tweet revealing its location. Each badge will also include our 2019 SWCC Yak Face Collector Coin button. Remember, we’ll also be doing a Collecting Track meet-and-greet on Sunday, April 14 at 4:30pm (Room W476) where you can get our SWCC exclusive patch wedge.
I hope to see some of you there!
Following up on my deciphering of the identities of Episode IX characters, I found a listing on Walmart for Hasbro’s new line* of Lightsaber Academy lightsabers: “LSA LVL 2 London Lightsaber“. I think this further supports my theory that “London” correlates to Rey in Lucasfilm’s mystery box surrounding the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Look for this item and more on Force Friday (October 4, 2019).
*Officially announced at Toy Fair 2019.
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is now underway in the forums! This theme entails characters from Tatooine, Jedha, Jakku, or any other desert setting. As usual, submissions can be from official canon, fan fic, etc. We look forward to seeing another round of great customs!
