The idea of brands like Star Wars and Marvel becoming marketable outside of the toys and t-shirt model is still fairly new to the convention scene. The idea of high end purses, kitchen utensils, luggage, and even a grill on the show room was impossible to imagine even a few years ago but is common […]
Star Wars: Celebration
The decision to have Star Wars Celebration Orlando over the Easter weekend presented a unique opportunity for the candy and toy makers Galerie Candy and Gifts. While they are a company that makes products year round, the lack of a kinder surprise eggs in the United States have left the market wide open for the company […]
“You’re not going to be sitting in a chair and watching the story happen, you’re going to be standing in it.”Amidst a heavy slate of Star Wars news on every front this weekend at Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Imagineering took the stage to reveal a few details on the eagerly-anticipated Star Wars […]
The panel showcasing the fourth, and as we found out toward the end of the panel, final season of Star Wars: Rebels was packed full of fans of the animated show on Disney XD. However, before they dived into the upcoming fourth season the cast and executive producer Dave Filoni was able to get into […]
The idea of the convention exclusive has become a bigger and bigger deal as the second hand market has grown. Vendors like Funko, Hasbro, and LEGO have learned their lesson over the many years, and have switched to lottery systems to sell their inventory safely at conventions. Some vendors have not realized how crazy these […]
Immediately after the panel for Star Wars: Rebels a press conference was held with a majority of the main cast. When asked about whether or not we would be exploring the Force in the final season of Rebels, executive producer Dave Filoni made an impassioned and beautiful speech about the core of Star Wars. “The […]
The day might be over in Orlando at Star Wars Celebration, but that doesn’t mean that news and updates have stopped emerging. Fandango’s managing editor Erik Davis managed to speak to Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Episode VIII) star Daisy Ridley about the film. Sounds like she hasn’t seen it yet, but that doesn’t mean […]
By the time the lights dimmed and the panel began, everyone was on the edge of their seats. Lucasfilm made a great choice in picking Josh Gad to host the panel. His videos of him harassing Daisy Ridley on the set of their last film went viral, and to get someone who is a master […]
The concept of camping out for something is a tried and true part of the convention experience. Those of us that have decided to try and brave Hall H at Comic-Con International have slept out on the grass for over a day to get into the various panels just see footage early.

By now, you’ve definitely seen the trailer for The Last Jedi, and one of the major reveals was the color of Rey’s lightsaber. Sure, we got a tease of it with the leaked Star Wars: Battlefront II art, but we now have official confirmation that her saber is blue. On the poster, her saber is blue where […]
It was this Craigslist listing from Orlando which has been forwarded to me many a time today, that started it… But there are plenty of others to browse through… though increasingly NSFW… Remember, have fun meet in a public place and always use protection. And no, the Force isn’t enough.
There are certain things that people expect when they are traveling to a major convention. They expect the food area to be insane and for it to be impossible to find a table. They expect people to disregard everything they know about walking to stop short in a way that creates a human six car […]
Jeremy Konrad is on the ground at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, and just happened to be leaving the Last Jedi panel when Disney/Lucasfilm merch was being broken out.
