Star Wars Celebration VI, Day One

Today at Star Wars Celebration VI:

  • I saw two Mara Jades as Arica, at least five Mara Jades in the catsuit, around eight Padmes, and two ladies dressed like Boushh. I didn't see a ton of Slave Leias. 
  • I got Luke in Bacta Tank pens.
  • I saw more toys than my brain could process.
  • I looked at cozy Boba Fett, Chewbacca, and R2-D2 robes.
  • I drooled over a Maul motorcycle jacket from UD replicas.
  • I saw a life-size rancor.
  • I ran into friends and met some lovely folks from Twitter.
  • I saw a person walking around in a Gonk costume.
  • I went to a Dark Horse Comics panel and learned there will be a new Jedi Dark Times series and maybe something new in the Star Wars Legacy department (Randy Stradley said to keep eyes open).
  • I got a customized Star Tours name tag (that's Amy in Aurebesh and I decided to be from Hoth):
  • I attended the conversation with Ian McDiarmid and listened to him talk in depth about Palpatine and his many facets. My write-up will be up at soon. At the end of the panel he pretended to lay on the Force lightning to James Arnold Taylor:
  • There was also this little mouse droid:

My photos are being uploaded throughout each day of the convention over at Nerd Approved!
