Just to kind of give you guys an update it would seem that several things are already sold out as of 11 am Saturday. The Luke Jedi shirt is gone, the Rey Shirt is almost gone, the Chewie shirt is almost gone as is the Kylo Ren shirt. The Ackbar shirt chips is gone. The official show shirt is sold out. The 2xl and 3xl shirts were gone for most shirts. I didn't see a single show program left on the table. The Dickies mechanic button up shirt seemed to be gone. I also did not see any of the pens with x-wings. They could be restocking, but the shirt sections had signs that said sold out.I'm looking for assistance picking up a couple of t shirts from the show. Failing that, hopefully the store will have stock left afterwards to sell online luke with previous shows.
At the end of the show on Sunday hang around that area or ask one of the volunteers of the collector panels. Usually they have a system to hand out extras one at a time to people who want them. Its all very organised and you usually get at least the first one you are after, usually 3.Any word on how to track down the Celebration Europe 2016 exclusive Collector Track Medallions.
I thought they were being handed out after the Collector Track panels, but I spent so much time running between things yesterday (Friday) that I must have missed out on them? Is there any way of picking these up?
They were one of the things I really wanted and so far I haven't been able to score any.
Communication for this event has been crap from day one. Be another 10 years before we possibly see the next CE in this country.I thought the stock at the store was poor to runout of stuff by mid afternoon on the second was bad especially if you've queued for an hour to get something and it's not there, they should have told us on the screens what was gone and I'd have not wasted my time.
That is what happens when the NFL have their games are at Wembley. The store has the merchandise books, with pens handed out. Browse what you want before getting to the front, and bingo, all done.The Celebration Store could certainly have been handled better, I don't think entry should have been as limited as it was. The main reason for the 90 min queues was because nobody knew exactly what was inside or the prices, so upon finally getting in there you've just got a load of people deciding what to buy before going to checkout. I think people in the queue should have been given a store booklet with a list of everything for sale with prices, so once people got in they'd grab what they had decided on and get out quicker.
I completely agree with you DarthWaller. I've never had success with getting any shirts I wanted and the lines have been insane the last two Celebrations I've been to (3 total for me). I only remember CV in Orlando had an open store during the 4 days. I imagine there was a line at the beginning of day 1, but I never went there till later in the day.It seems like there are major complaints about the store every Celebration. I don't know why they can't seem to get it right. They always run out of t-shirts during the first couple days and the lines are always horrible. They really should allow people who bought tickets in advance to do online ordering before the show. Imagine how much more merchandise they could sell if you could preorder it and pick it up at the show.
They had a 'lightspeed' ticket that gave you access at a specified time slot. This service wasn't well advertised and I only got a ticket because someone just handed me there spare one! So I don't know how they got the ticket in the first place, but they saved me an hour or so in the queue.The Celebration merchandise was excessively expensive IMO. I just got a program and a mug. The program was £20 and the mug with printed logos was £12. In comparison I paid less than £20 for The Art of TFA book and the Disney store character mugs are £10. The 90 min queues could also have been handled better, maybe a ticket system with time slots to save queuing or something.
You know my friend said he thought he'd seen online they we're doing something like this but we asked several members of staff about it at the show and nobody knew anything about it.They had a 'lightspeed' ticket that gave you access at a specified time slot.

It was an early release "exclusive" (if that's even a thing). I've got mine preordered on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Star-Wars-Build-Adventure/dp/1465450459/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1469810896&sr=8-3&keywords=lego+star+wars+build+your+ownThere was a Lego exclusive available they teamed up with DK books and it was available at their stall opposite to the Lego area, I took a photo as a friend wanted to know if there was any Lego exclusive.
It was priced at £12 I think it was
Got the badge set today.. they came in a plastic bag with a bubble wrap envelope...wow, super commemorative...no holder... nothing to display them in... what a joke... £50 for that?I ordered the Passes but was told 6-8 weeks so I'm not panicing yet.
