Topic: Star Wars: Celebration V

Well, I don't know if anyone here has heard or not, but C5 is coming to my neck of the woods at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, FL August 2010. It's supposed to be bigger than C4, so we'll see. Details in the link below.

For anyone going, tickets go on sale December 10th.

They need to be farther west. A LOT farther west.

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

CIV was in Los Angelos, wasn't it? And CI was in Denver. And then Cs II and III were both in Indianapolis. So I guess it is time for it to go somewhere different.

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

I only got to go to the first one, while I was stationed in Wyoming at the time.  It was pretty cool, but not near as much people that it draws now.  I just remember it came out around the same time Phantom Menace was around, so there was Darth Maul stuff for sale everywhere.

Too bad I'll be at Osan Air Base, South Korea during this one, or I'd try to hit it up.  Been wanting to go to one for a while, but just been too busy with work.  Oh well.

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

Looks like some very nice Fett artwork can be expected at the Celebration V this year.  I especially like the one of Fett overlooking the arrival of the Falcon on Cloud City (and he even got the armor and blaster rifle correct).

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

Also, there is a Boba Fett 4-day adult pass for those that are going this year.  Definitely a good year to be a Fett fan.

that is some really awesome artwork.

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

Here's something kind of different they're selling at the celebration.  Tired of the same old breakfast cereal?  Put a little pepp in your step with Fetties.

Or choose from lots of other Star Wars mini cereals.

I didn't know you're in the service Sadriel; Oya ner vod!

Also, looking at that top picture in your Round Two post *post #11,* that's a really awesome job, but I don't think it's Boba..  which may actually make it even more impressive to me.  That or it's a fan-fiction/Mando'ed out version of Boba.  Note the Jaing eyes on the helmet and the emblem on his left breast plate.  Anybody know the character or reference on that one?

I think the pic below it is funny... 

Han:
"Don't move... Just keep looking forward and they won't notice us..."

And I totally agree Sadriel, that first image you linked of Boba watching the Falcon and its crew is epic.  If only THAT was a part of the first Special Addition... that and his battle with IG-88

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

ralin is right, it looks like Jango's armor.

I think it's loosely based off of old Boba Fett concept art images.  In some of the concept art images, he had Jaig Eyes and other different symbols painted on his armor (some of which made their way onto Clone Trooper armor in the Clone Wars series).  I thought it was a Death Watch symbol on his chest, at first, but looking closer at it, it looks more like an upside down version of the Hawkbat symbol, like the one on the helmet of the ARC Trooper Gunship pilot in the original Clone Wars cartoon series. 

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Advanced … ando_pilot

Wish they'd show ARC Troopers in the new series, or even Republic Commandos.  They never have explained why Rex is wearing ARC Trooper armor.  I guess it's implied that he was one of the "ARC Trained" Clone Trooper officers, like Bly, Gree, etc.

Wow, round 5 is already out.  I dig the Fett and Vader back to back poster.

Also, a new Celebration V "Tribute" poster featuring the Fettster himself.  The artist even went so far as to contact The Dented Helmet and found out that even the Skull shoulder emblems were different between Fett's Empire and Jedi costumes, so the posters reflect that.

Some of the preliminaries weren't that bad, either.  Too bad they won't be posters themselves, but hey, we can hope.

The new C5 Commemorative Guide is also decked out with a Fett motif, featuring Slave 1 blasting out of Cape Canaveral.

The Slave 1 space shuttle made me laugh.

I sadly cannot go. It's not in my budget.

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

I will be there, along with many members of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club. Everyone from the forums here feel free to stop by the table, hopefully we'll have some BFFC stuff up as well.

It's so close, can't wait!

Re: Star Wars: Celebration V

So, any good news from the Celebration?  I posted a new thread over in the Collecting Section for new items that are coming out of the Celebration.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/t … rchandise/

I know some of the Mando Mercs who belong to the Club are going to be over there.  Was anyone else able to make it?  Anyone who's there actually have any news on things that are not merchandise related or some pics they'd like to share?
