CVI Updates: Collectors Showcase, Vader Car, and Tom Spina!

By: Dominic Jones

Over the last few days there have been several new updates on the highly anticapted upcoming Star Wars Celebration VI this August 23rd-26th in Orlando, Florida.

First it was announced that Tom Spina will be attending the event. Spina is an expert on all things mos Eisley Cantina. He has studied the history of the scene as well as the artist and designers who worked on it, and he designed the set and the costumes for this years Volkewagen Superbowl commercial. He will be taking part in a special panel will Pablo Hidalgo to reveal all kinds of new secrets to fans about the iconic scene.

Second, Inside West Coast Customs' Ryan Friedlinghaus, has designed an officially liscensed custom Darth Vader Volkswagen Passat that will be on display at the convention this summer. Check out the car below:

Lastly, a cool opportunity for Collectors was unveiled. The collectors showcase will offer Star Wars collectors to display their colections for 30 000+ fans. Here's what the offical Celebration website says about it:

Each Star Wars collection is as unique as the people who assembled it. Whether your collection fills a single shelf or a full house, the Celebration VI Collecting Track will show what sets your collection apart. Maybe you have the weirdest assortment of t-shirts, or posters from every country where Star Wars movies were shown. Maybe you just have a flair for displaying your stash in ways that even non-fans can appreciate. The Celebration VI Collector Showcase is your chance to provide fellow collectors with ideas on how to make their own collections shine. Select images from those submitted will be displayed in the Collectors' community area at Star Wars Celebration VI.

To have your collection considered for the Showcase (you may enter as an individual or a family), send no more than eight images to Todd Chamberlain no later than June 8.
Please include:
  • Full name(s)
  • City, state/province, and country
  • 400 words or less about what makes your collection unique in terms of content, focus, or presentation. Tell us how your collection developed.
  • High-resolution images will be needed (4256x2848 at 300 dpi or greater) for the final product, but lower resolution images may be submitted initially
We will be looking for a variety of content and display styles, so if you have a larger collection, be sure to include images that focus on smaller groupings of items (i.e., a particular shelf or display case), not just wide angle shots. Photo submissions may be posted on the official Star Wars Celebration Web site and affiliated promotional Web sites, publications, or on posters and slide presentations at Celebration VI.
