Sneak Peek at the Auction Treasure Trove

Bonnie Burton | May 24, 2007

Collecting with a conscience just got a lot cooler thanks to the Celebration IV: Silent Auction of vintage goods to benefit Make-A-Wish. Everything from the beloved Ewok Village to rare items that even I didn’t know existed can be bid on at CIV. Lucas Licensing Archives donated boxes and boxes of rare, classic items — in fact, a few of us gasped when we spotted mint to near-mint condition treasures. Whether it was Jabba the Hutt Playdoh kits, Darth Vader Underoos, or plush Ewoks in both brown and pink varieties, there seems to be something kitschy and rare for every kind of collector.

Hitting the Ground Running: R2-C4 Print

Pablo Hidalgo | May 23, 2007

We’re now in Los Angeles, and sitting in our inbox is a missive from Don Bies, Droid Supervisor for the prequel trilogy and generally recognized as the guy who keeps R2-D2 ticking. He sends us a rather cool looking print that should look familiar to those of who have DK’s Star Wars: Complete Visual Dictionary. Here’s the description:

“Another C-IV exclusive! Don Bies and CG Artist Mike Verta have teamed together to produce this digital high quality print of an expanded view of R2-D2. Limited to only three, it is printed on canvas and measures 27″ X 42″ and is signed by the artists. It will be on display in the R2 Builders room and will be auctioned off for charity via silent auction on Sunday. For more details, stop by the R2 builders room.”
