    Yay, the celebration pins have just been announced,
    and

    (drum roll)

    they're the cute emojis from the Star Wars App :-O
    Have any of you guys collected these before? Are they worth getting and any idea about what the price normally is for the early bird set?
    :-D

    I think they look pretty cool and will certainly be trying to get them all as a reminder of the event!!

    I was thinking about getting them as a souvenir, possibly to trade if I saw better pins there, but $45 (£30) for the set & a shirt I don't really want has put me off.

    Took a look at them and my reaction is "hm, nice, it could be a fun souvenir", but I guess since they are marketed as collectibles and for trading they will sell out quickly, and I'm not going to fight or stand in along cues for them

    Oh wow, they are too expensive! I'd be more interested in a Celebration pin with one of the images from the poster.

    Soon as I saw the price I was like hell no.

    This is the problem, they want to do this swapping collecting business which sounds fun, but if you have kids for example that's a lot of money to pump into something that is meant to be "fun".

    Disney should give these out IMO or make the set say £10 available there and maybe limit them per day. Give something to the fans hell it's already cost £120 just to get in so far! (inc t-shirt and laynard).

    Didn't get the first set, I might pick up the second set as my wife is a big BB-8 & Chopper fan so I think she'd like those pins and that would give me 2 to trade at the convention (tbh the only one I'd really be interested in is TFA Luke if they do him).

    Mostly though I'm just dreading what they'll do to the store queue after reading the horror stories from last year.

    If I remember they sold different pins in the store each day so it was always mobbed by pin collectors. Basically is just increased the issues with the store being insanely busy because the put different pins out each day so pin collectors had to go every day

    Anyone know if there is going to be a special souvenir trophy hunt type thing like the previous Celebrations had?

    I have my Galactic Passport & stamps from CE1 & my Jabba's Most Wanted medal coin from CE2.
    I hope they'll do something similar for this event
