Comic-Con 2009: The Empire Muggs Back

StarWars.com Team | July 29, 2009

If you were at San Diego Comic-Con International this year then you may have spotted our display cases featuring customized Star Wars Mighty Mugg art pieces for The Empire Muggs Back — a charity art show to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The cases showed off Mighty Muggs from toy designers, graffiti artists, tattoo artists, comic book artists, Star Wars artists, Robot Chicken model makers, puppeteers, and artists, and even a few celebrities like Clone Wars director Dave Filoni, Fanboys director Kyle Newman, actress Jaime King, and The Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin.

In addition to checking out the display, fans were able to pick up info cards and limited-edition pins (a different pin passed out each day of Comic-Con). All participating artists get pins and an Empire Muggs Back t-shirt.

Here’s some photos of The Empire Muggs Back at Comic-Con:
