    I'm not sure of I'm going but someone can explain it too me.

    The Ahsoka one looks good. I'd want it.

    Do I have to preorder and collect it preshow?
    It won't be available there?
    What size and type is it?

    It says it's $66 but I'm in the UK so does that mean it's £44?

    Is there only 250 copies?

    How do I transport this thing?

    How does it work? As in what is it actually?

    Happy to help! I've but numbers in your quote to easier match my answers.
    1. No. But you are gurrented a copy and won't have to worry about the mony when you're there if you pre-order.
    2. All remanining copys will be there. + I think they are going to reserve 50 copys for the con.
    3. "Pieces of the past" is: 16" x 23" lithograph print.
    4. Yes.
    5. Yes
    6. Traditionally, a tube.
    7. The artist make an exclusive print of his/her art with the Celebration Logo, they sign each one and mark it 1/250, 2/250 and so on.

    Eh, well. I'd say "fancy/expensive paper" you can use a normal frame

    Will Blue tack or pins do?

    Will it sell out quick? So in a week?

    Blu-Tack or pins WOULD do the trick, but it's a limited edition thing; I wouldn't use methods like that. You can pick up a frame from most stationary stores for less than £5, and it'll just keep it nice.

    I missed the pre-orders :( I'd really like to buy one of Jeff Carlisle's "Londonium Calling" - since they are all limited edition, will there be some left to buy at the booth or did all 250 get purchased via pre-order?

    Last time in London they were selling print tubes, and in an effort to avoid the additional cost I went without, thinking that it wasn't needed for the Staggs print that I had bought. However, after several hours of walking around the print did end up getting dinged and dented. So I really would recommend buying a tube as well to keep any prints protected - and that's just for the show itself.

    Well considering the prices for the photos don't expect anything to be free at this Celebration!
    Wouldn't be suprised if you had to pay extra for a mug for your coffee! "What you didn't bring your own mug?" (I'm joking of course!) Haha!
    I don't know what the prices are guessing it won't be more than a few pounds.

    I honestly can't remember but it was enough to make a difference (maybe £5?). Of course, I had just spent 50 on the print, so wasn't liking the prospect of paying any more. Money's a lot more free and available now, so it's interesting how things have changed in the last (almost) 10 years.

    I messaged the SW Celebration Facebook account about prices for the key art and got this reply:

    "Hi Sean. Thank you for your message. We will not be selling this poster. Sorry!"

    However, the official site said they'd have it on sale as a poster in the original announcement! Can any Celebration veterans recall if previous key art has been available to buy?

    I already have Malcolm Tween's "Graveyard of Giants" preordered, but I'd like both!

    Could you ask them how the artwork comes? And if there's a protective tube available and how much it will be?

    Also would there be enough time to pick up the art and then go to the Ahsoka panel?

    I ordered the Ahsoka piece so that's a good chance to get it signed.

    Greatly appreciate it.

    Shame if they're not doing the key art as a poster, I wasn't really planning on buying models or figures, so had planned to pick up a poster of the key art! Hopefully they made a mistake though.

    Are you sure the response is
    I'm just throwing this out there as a possibility, but could they simply mean that they as the organizers aren't selling it, but that it will be sold on the premises by a third party?

    Maybe redxavier, but it would make sense if they had said yes, I would assume if it's the official artwork, it would be on sale in the celebration store, and therefore the organisers should be selling it.

    Considering it took them a week to respond to my last question, I doubt I'll heard back by Friday! I'd strongly advise bringing your own protective tube (like an artist's one).

    Yes always bring a tube. At some Celebrations they have sold really nice lightsaber-shaped tubes, but I didn't see those in Anaheim. You usually just get the print that you buy in a piece of plastic.
