The Celebration Anaheim Collecting Track is proud to announce: The Vader Case Project
New this year to the Celebration Track is the Vader Case Project. At Celebration IV in 2007, the original Vader Project showcased artist’s talents by having them decorate and alter full sized Darth Vader helmet replicas. The results were stunning with artist’s rendering Vader into everything from a clown to the Statue of Liberty to Vader with a fruit hat. More can be seen about this project at thevaderproject.com.
In a similar style, the Celebration Track has invited over twenty-five Star Wars artists and collectors to decorate a vintage Darth Vader carrying case with their own take on the Dark Lord. The artists include collectors like Gus Lopez, prolific Star Wars artists like Chris Trevas, and even Nathan Hamill has joined in. The cases will be shown throughout Celebration in the Collector’s Track Social Room. So, stop by and see these wonderful pieces of unique artwork.

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2 the most rare items won’t be on the show floor, they’ll only be available AFTER DARK. The CE2 Collecting Track is excited to announce Collecting After Dark, a Star Wars Collector’s Swap Meet where fans from across the globe can come to trade their Star Wars goods. Bring your items to sell or trade or add some new stuff to your collection. From new to vintage, rare prototypes and more, you never know what you’ll find After Dark! So join us Saturday, July 27, 11:00 PM at the Atlantic Congress Hotel, just half a mile from the convention center.
The Swap Meet at Star Wars Celebration VI was the spot for collectors to obtain new gems, so don’t miss out in Collecting After Dark at CE2!
Have an awesome vintage item? Maybe a really cool limited edition item? We want to see it! Bring your Star Wars collectible to the Collecting Track room and show it off! Items need to be small enough to fit into a standard counter height display case and they will be locked up while on display. And while you’re at CE2, make sure to stop by and view these truly amazing items.
