Star Wars Geekiness

As you know, Star Wars Celebration IV took place last month on LA, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. Being an assumed Star Wars fan, I followed the event though several websites, unfortunately LA is too expensive for me to go right now and Celebration Europe is schedule from July 13th to the 15th… a bad choice of dates for me because I have another BIG event on those days 😛 But I digress. I noticed that on Celebration IV (an on most SW events) they released some figures based on Ralf McQuarrie’s concept artwork for Star Wars, specially on one of my favorite McQuarrie’s art pieces: The Droids – the concept of R2-D2 and C3PO.

So, I jumped the party wagon and got the figures from a seller on EBay, there’re still plenty of sellers for this figures. Being an exclusive it’s normal that people try to cash in the following days. Still this figures will be sold as an exclusive (again) on Celebration Europe, the main difference will be the celebration logo on the plastic blister. As for me, I’m delighted with the figures, not being perfect matches of the drawing, they capture the essence of what McQuarrie had in mind and they come with a commemorative coin/medallion. I don’t think I’m opening the box on this one…
