Trading swag has become incredibly popular at these Celebrations. Collectors and fans produce their own pins, patches, stickers, etc. and set out to trade for as many cool little collectibles as they can get their hands on. What do you have planned for Chicago? Post yours here to let everyone know where to find you and what you'll be offering.

SWC SWAG CREW are already staring to see finalized swag from attendees. I will once again be tracking all the known swag on our FB page. Hoping we can get over the 1000 items tracked this year :O There are some lovely combo patches coming together. I can wait for the clubs and groups to reveal them.

Looking forward to the puzzle patches once again. Hoping there is something Vintage Kenner inspired once again. Love those figure cases from the past, but I fear they exhausted both Vader and C-3PO so...
As for fan swag, I am more than ready this go around! I have my various patches from the "I Backed the Barge" to Vintage toy logos and hope to have a few more run before April!

My swag is a badge dedicated to Shannon McRandle ( Mara Jade ) and I will be giving so many out each day of the show . I'm doing this so I can give everyone a chance to get this cool badge at the show. Like DarthBaldylox I'm a member of the SWC Swag Crew made of great people giving away free swag. I will also have some different Star Wars patches to trade with, especially since I love patches lol. but check us out at www.facebook.com/groups/swcswagcrew

From what I’ve seen and heard so far, vintage and barge related items are going to be a focus, as well as things tied to Chicago in general

Any word on the rebelscum tags?
That will come much closer to the event. Posting a sign-up now would mean a bunch of members signing up and then some changing their plans as we get closer which results in wasted badges being produced.

There’s also big stack of badges that no one ever picked up from Orlando which means none of those members are eligible for future badges.

Ouch...I might be one. I couldn't attend due to I had just retired from the Army that March and had a new job to start.

I'm the opposite. I've been to both UK ones but this will be my first US event.

I know its early but I really wanted to share my swag for Celebration Chicago!! I'm really blown away with how they turned out. Im sure most people here recognize that this is the image from the special charity screening for The Empire Strikes Back back in the 80s.

I have decided to get in on the action, and just got my order of swag to give away (this will be my first time giving instead of just collecting). I'll have 200 to give out (40/day).

I won't be able to attend the Celebrations even, Hutt. But if you have any of the Falcon chips left over, let me know.
