Ok, gang, it's that time again. I thought I'd start a thread for all of the Collecting Track announcements, just to keep things more orderly.

Gus wanted me to send this out:
We are pleased to announce the Collecting Track for Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 in London, England on July 15-17, 2015. Similar to past Star Wars Celebration events, the collecting program is the place where Star Wars collectors spanning all levels and interests come together to participate in talks, panels, and activities around the Star Wars collecting hobby.

The Star Wars Collecting Track is a completely fan-run event. All of the panelists and presenters for the collecting program are fans like you from the Star Wars collecting community. Panels consist of discussion topics with 1-4 presenters leading a detailed discussion about some area or aspect of Star Wars collecting. If you are interested in being a Star Wars Celebration Collecting Track presenter, please submit the following panel information to me at gus@toysrgus.com by March 31, 2016:

Panel Information
Panel Title:
Program Description (3-4 sentences):
Have you present this Panel at another Celebration before?
If so when?
Have you presented this Panel at other conventions or conferences before?
Do you plan to offer giveaways? If so, what?
Moderator: Name, Email, and Phone Number
Panelist(s) (up to 3 more in addition to moderator): Name, Email, and Phone Number

We will reply to everyone submitting a panel proposal by April 30, 2016 with a decision about panel selection.


I also started a brand new Celebration Collecting Track Facebook group, which will cover all Celebrations from now on. That should make things easier for everyone. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1676158792655915/

So, stayed tuned for all the Collecting Track news!

Leaf it out! Surely we're not going to branch off into the old tree puns again? I think the root of problems is that they sap the will to live of the reader and before you know it they've all logged off.

Anyone who hasn't been to a celebration before you must get to one of these panels. Sure you can go and see Hamill, Fisher etc (who give the same panel pretty much everytime) and I would encourage you to do so if it's your first, but get to at least one of these too.

It's a shame Dave was too busy to play himself in the film they made about his life, I always thought Chuck's performance was a bit..wooden..

Announcing the Celebration Europe 2016 Collector Track Medallions! Continuing with the tradition of awesome giveaways, the Collecting Track will be handing out enameled medallions at the panels! Absolutely free! Each pewter medallion shows a detailed view of a vintage Kenner Star Wars toy! They will make awesome companion pieces to both our popular Star Tot and Celebration Medallion giveaways of the past, and are something that you can appreciate for years to come! Collect all 12!

Nice!

Hope they aren't all snapped up by people who attend panels just to resell on eBay.

I have a few star tots and they are cool but I sort of wish they would give them out at the beginning of the panel. That way those people who are only in there for a tot they can sell online will fuck off and let me have a seat so I can see the panel.

Really nice pins, I hope to get a few, one of the things I'm most looking forward to is all the collecting talks!

At Ce2 I was sat behind a couple who started talking to each other as soon as the panel started. When I asked them to be quiet so I could hear what was being said, the bloke said he was only there for the tot and couldn't care less. Blows where avoided narrowly.
