Celebration 4

Everything is now set for Sarah and I to go to Star Wars Celebration 4. It is near the end of May in L.A. I bought our tickets and reserved our room. Thank goodness for the tax return to pay for most of this. It should be a blast. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. So far it has been announced that Carrie Fisher will be there to sign autographs. I am hoping Mark Hamill will show up as well, so I can get his autograph. For anyone interested here is the official site http://www.starwars.com/celebration/and if anyone would like to go with us and split the cost of gas they are more than welcome.

Star Wars Update

With the holiday weekend I finally updated my Star Wars site with some new items that I have added to my collection over the last 6 months or so. My last update was in June last year, so I figured I better do something. You can see what has been added by going to the what’s new page at http://kemple.servepics.com/starwars/new.html

Star Wars turns 29

Today is the 29th Birthday of my favorite movie. I plan to watch Episode IV tonight when I get to St. George in celebration. Here is the poster from the 1st Birthday. I want to get a reprint when I have the extra money. An original is worth around the $2000 which is a little out of my budget.

George Lucas To Be Inducted Into Toy Industry Hall Of Fame

As quoted from rebelscum.com

George Lucas will be inducted into the Toy Industry Hall Of Fame at the Toy Of The Year Awards event. The event takes place Saturday, February 10, 2007, in New York City.

Here’s a small snippet from Yahoo.com:

“From the time it premiered in 1977, George Lucas’ “Star Wars” saga took the world by storm and created a cultural phenomenon that has touched generations of kids with its epic battles and legendary characters. In addition to winning eight Academy Awards, the “Star Wars” movies set new standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound, and revolutionized the toy industry at the same time. The first “Star Wars” film inspired Kenner Products’ creation of the 3-3/4-inch action figure scale, which remains an industry standard today. Designed, manufactured and marketed by Hasbro, Inc. since its purchase of Kenner in 1991, “Star Wars” toys and games are one of the best-selling toy lines in the industry’s history.”
