    I had to do an eyeroll and a bit of a groan for the cheese factor, but they are cool shirts.

    I'm sure they will be a hot seller. I predict many wives/girlfriends will see these and be like "honey, we need those!"

    This may be a little off topic, but what exclusives should we expect? This is my first C, and I wondered what all I should expect to be offered.

    There is going to be at least two action figures, then there are usually different t-shirts, pins, other small things. I think usually companies like Gentle Giant also have their own exclusives.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the official shirt being available only by pre-order, but oh well.

    It doesn't actually say that this is the official shirt though (unless I missed something). This is just a shirt with the logos on it. I'm sure they'll have plenty of options available once you get there.

    Interesting though that it doesn't ship until at least July 25 and can take 7-10 business days. That means it could be cutting it close for people who want to actually have the shirt when they go to the show.

    If this is an indication of how much things will be a CV, I think I will be passing on a great many things.

    Times have changed. It's rare to find a decent t-shirt for less than $20 anywhere, especially at an exclusive event like this. You could almost compare it to a concert t-shirt, and those are usually even more than $25.

    I'm sure there will be items for all price ranges though.

    Agreed. Given the overall lackluster quality & design (and extremely small sizing) of the apparel at CIV, I'd have no problem with a higher price point for the apparel at CV if improvements are made across the board.

    A lot of people are already complaining about the Shirts in either price or qlty. I mean come on guys what do you expect?
    I think the shirts that we have seen are good and as for the price, $25.00 is not bad. Its not like its a Walmart qty shirt.
    And if you went to a sporting event or to a concert you most likely would pay more for a shirt there. I paid $25.00 for the official CII shirt in ,what 02 and It still wares good today some eight years later. If you are already complaining about the cost ,I can bet your not going to enjoy the Celebration experience at all. Just take it as it comes.Just my two cents.

    Shirts are available to order online now. Using previous email confirm, you can click on change order and add the shirts.
    I think the prices are too high compared to the cost of making them, but as everyone has said, concerts and events overprice the merchandise. I like the logo t-shirt and probably would have paid $25.00 at the convention for it.

    The price of the shirt is fine. Just yesterday I paid 32$ for a ESB t-shirt. But, all I was saying was, if this shirt is 25$, then other things are going to be unobtainable for some. And, I'm pretty sure you can have a good time without having spend a lot of money while you are there (I've never been: I could be wrong). But, after spending 6k just in preparation of going, I can bet I will be passing on many things.

    If nothing else, this is a good business strategy on their part to boost ticket sales for the con, since you have to buy one in order to purchase the goods.

    The other Four have gone up on Starwars.com to VIEW. Much better pictures then was available from C2E2.
    The Hoth one is ok but Im passing on it as well as the other ones. I like the cartoon concept of the "I love you" and "I know" shirt ,but that also would get me heckled to no end if I wore them to work.

    Pass on these four designs for me as well.

    But I did preorder the official CV logo and Fett Jet Ski shirts though for my wife and I. We like those designs quite a bit.
