Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 is now just over fifty days away and in anticipation of the event, Lucasfilm and ReedPOP have announced the Star Wars Celebration Pin Trading Program. The pins will be available at Celebration from the official Celebration Store as well as various exhibitors throughout Celebration. Other pins will only be available through trades with the Celebration staff. The pins are based on the emojis in the official Star Wars app and feature characters from across the entire saga. There will be forty pins in total
Eight pins will be available ahead of the convention, as part of the Road to Celebration program. The first four (pictured above) are Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren, and will be available on May 25th. The second Road to Celebration pack, the "Droid Emoji" pack, will feature R2-D2, C-3PO, BB-8, and Chopper and will be available at a later date. The pins are only available to fans who have already purchased their tickets to Celebration. If you are interested in purchasing the first pack and have already bought your tickets to Celebration, check your email on Wednesday for details on how to buy.
