I just entered myself in the 3 exclusive merchandise lotteries. This is a much better and fair way of doing it, I see that several of the big panels are also set up for lotteries which go live on Friday.

Just entered the Hasbro and Funko lotteries. Is this the only way to score their exclusives at the convention? Or it is just a certain number set aside for the lotteries?

Also, has anyone received emails confirming their lottery entries?

Yeah, I'm wondering about those 7 extra entries that are shown (regardless of how many tickets are tied to an email). Hopefully they have a way to prevent people from getting 8 entries.

I just hope to get it this time, last Celebration I heard some applied their whole family and Won 4 times in the lottery. So hopefully this time they make it more fair to the rest of us so we can get exclusive items also.

All other exclusive stuff is the regular line up to get it. Usually with a limited number sold each day.

Hmmm... I got my badge from a friend who couldn't go and was able to register the badge with my own personal email address but it won't let me register for the lotteries with it. Is that normal?

Nevermind, I read through the FAQs and it said only the badges sold through Lyte would be able to enter.

The exclusive lottery is strange. I got 10 confirmation emails from each but I didn't sign up for that many.

LOL $45 for the "Exclusive edition" Master + Apprentice hardback. Ridiculous!
I think that's been the price for the last half dozen or so convention exclusives Del Rey has done. It's not so ridiculous when you consider they're signed, very limited, and include a collector's pin.

Finally got my confirmation emails. Like you guys, I got many multiple email confirmations, so I'm assuming it's an email notification glitch, not a multiple entry type of glitch.

Am I going to have to enter the lottery to have any chance at the Master & Apprentice exclusive?

The Collecting Track is proud to announce the next 6 Star Tots we will be giving away at Celebration! Han in Stormtrooper disguise! 2-1B! Chewbacca in Ceremonial outfit! Luke in Tatooine Poncho! Teebo! And Vader Unmasked!

As a reminder, each Tot is an enameled metal character-shaped medallion, done in the style of the vintage unproduced Kenner Star Tots preschool line. They are official, fully licensed Celebration exclusives and can only be found at our panels. And each comes with a special mini-coin, inspired by the vintage Kenner Power of the Force coins! We even got the same company to produce them for us!

Attend any Collecting Track panel in room W474 to receive yours! Free! Collect all 20!

Is anyone getting the attached link to work? I hit the above link, and that works fine. But when I go to take the next step “Enter the Exhibitor Exclusive Lottery”, that hangs up and goes nowhere?

Thanks for any help!
It works for me. Try clearing cookies and turning off pop up blockers for that site

Couple of questions.

Did anyone else who preordered the Souvenir guide, not get it? I know at the last Celebration, we had to pick it up at the store, but I can't find anything referencing that this time around.

Am I mistaken, I could have sworn that I read somewhere where we'd be able to preorder items from the Store before the show?

That's true, I saw the guide offered when we got my tickets, I did'nt order it because I've always seen info and pictures from the Cele. before. but it was offered this time.

Does anyone think you have a better chance to win, if you just enter one Exclusive lottery, rather than all x3 if you are primarily just interested in 1?

In Celebrations past, the guide needed to be picked up on-site, since it wouldn't be printed early enough to ship out. There have always been a lot of guides, so no need to worry about getting it. The hard part is to remember to pick it up. Also, Reed Pop has had a booth that was for pickup merchandise.

So far, I haven't seen any info about the pickup location.

Who really knows at this point. The lottery was a complete cluster from the get-go and now we won't know if we made it until mere hours before the event.

Just a thought, epsilon, but if you're so down on everything to do with Celebration.....why go??

To your question, Irish_Jedi: I assume that each lottery is treated independently. The actual odds of winning will depend on how many entries each one receives.

Because I’m a Star Wars fan. I go to have fun just like anyone. I’ve been to many a convention organized by many different groups and reedpop has by far the most issues. It’s not like it’s an isolated incident things are just snowballing it seems and with a week to go it just seems like things should’ve been ironed out by now not just made up on the fly. For being one of the biggest cons of the year and with as many people attending as they say, I have high expectations so when those are not met I have every right to voice my displeasure as a paying customer.

That is true,I agree, Reed has put on some good Cele.'s in the past and I'm wondering why there is a mess now? maybe if the location had been revealed at the end of the last Orlando, they could have ironed out the wrinkles for this one, in that they would've had more time to do it in. have you seen the new line up hours for the main dealers room? pretty early according to the entry rules posted.

I am thinking the fast pass will work like past celebrations, where there are only a limited amount of passes, so once they run out then you will need to line up. At this point I am planning to spend my entire day waiting in line for the store on Thursday.

I wish they'd hurry up and get the app updated. I'm curious about what they said on their website about the store. In addition to the LIGHTSPEED LANE, they mention being able to order merchandise through the app to pick up your order at te how or ship it to your home.

I like those tots , but i never get one at any of the Celebrations . Every time the panel lines are too long and I never get to go inside cause of cutoff. I love that patch my buddy is one of the of the guys giving the patch also.
