Thread: Celebration IV Collecting Track

  1. #1

    Celebration IV Collecting Track

    I'm organizing the program for the Celebration IV collecting track. I'm very interested in hearing ideas for talks, panels, and activities for the C4 collecting program, especially new topics that haven't been covered before, interactive events, and suggestions that span the diversity of interests & demographics in Star Wars collecting.

    Also, if you have feedback on things that worked well or could stand to improve from previous Celebration collecting events/talks, please let me know. Just shoot me an email with your suggestions. Thanks.

    How about how recent licensees have changed the current culture of collecting and what we could expect in the future?

    In the past there's been a Future of the Hobby Rountable Discussion and I think this fits into that category. I've always found this to be an interesting discussion.

    I for one was a big fan of the Collector Meet and Greet Social Hour so I hope this happens again.

    I know the Unproduced Toys had one of the largest turnouts for a toy related panel.

    Micro Collection and Coins seem to be hot right now so panels on the availabilty, scarcity, the production process, and unproduced may be neat to see.

    and time will be, the catalyst to weed out the weak and beget strength-of character

    I think that a "Don't Forget Us -- Female Star Wars Collectors" would be a pretty interesting panel. I'd be there, definitely .

    And always -- anything to do with conservationism and protecting your collection for posterity.
    Always on the lookout for unusual Padme Amidala items. PM for info about my collection!

    I'd be interested in a "High-end Collectibles" topic, covering everything from Gentle Giant to Master Replicas. Can't remember if that was done at C3, but it would be fun.

    Re: Celebration IV Collecting Track

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. Some of them were even on our list already (e.g. female Star Wars collectors, coins, etc.) so it's good to see some common interests. Keep the ideas coming...

    If possible could someone post the topics that were presented at C3. I was only able to attend a couple of them and I can't recall any of the presentations that I missed, not that they weren't good, I just didn't get the time.

    R2-D2 Character Focus Collector
    Unproduced Droids & Ewoks Collector
    WTB:R2-D2 & UDE Prototypes, photo & card art, coin pre- & production peices

    Star Wars posters
    Displaying collectibles
    The future of Star Wars collecting
    Collecting etiquette (maybe a topic within Collecting 101)
    Wacky collectibles
    International collectibles
    Keeping track of a collectiong (again, maybe a topic within Collecting 101)
    "I'm a big bounty hunter like Boba Fett"

    The only thing I know and collect are autographs, so thats what I would like to see.
    Any talks etc could cover from common to rare signers, who does not sign for love nor money, looking after your colection and TTM stuff. There are loads of different topics to cover in this (at one point I even started writing a book about collecting!).
    Please PM me if you are attending a show that has any Goonies guests or Cirroc Lofton. I will pay extra per autograph.
