Star Wars fever is in full swing as today sees the official launch of the blind box series – Star Wars 2 in Walt Disney World, Flordia. To kick off the official release day, Artists Maria Clapsis and Casey Jones will be at D-Street today for signings between 11am and 1pm. Casey Jones was in D-Street at the Disneyland Resort in Los Angeles yesterday for the release there. The blind boxes are priced at a incredible $14.95 each.
Also this weekend in Orlando, the Star Wars Celebration VI kicked off yesterday at the Orange County Convention Center and will run through the weekend. The big news from yesterday was that Star Wars Series 3 will be out next year and is based on Return of the Jedi along with a 9″ Jabba the Hut.
But that’s next year, the Celebration Exclusive Hologram Leia went on sale at the event yesterday with a LE2500 and a price tag of $18.95. Judging by some of the comments on Twitter/Facebook/Forums etc, they didn’t sell out on the first day (but with a limit of 2 per person and 2500 to sell, I didn’t expect it to sell out in minutes). They are also now starting to float around on the secondary market such as ebay for around $40 each.
Also available at the stand are the Star Wars 2 Blind Boxes and apparently anyone who is a Annual Passholder can still get their discount at the booth.
If your at the event you can find them at booth #331 and #341, and if your at the event, we would love to see your pictures of the vinylmation stand and your purchases.
