Tantive XI at Celebration Chicago 2019

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you know that Star Wars Celebration Chicago is happening from April 11th to 15th. Representatives from the TantiveXI.com team will be at Celebration Chicago, and they will be giving away some of the finest vintage style droid figures you’ve ever seen!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Just like our London & Orlando give aways, these figures are made with new parts in the style of the original Kenner astromechs, but this time they represent several on-screen droids from the original trilogy that were never made in the vintage line.

MEET THE DROIDS

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

To get your hands on some of these droid figures, you’ll have to track down one of the Tantive XI team members at the convention. Team members will be periodically posting their location within the convention center here on this thread, so keep checking back once the event begins. These droids will be limited in supply, so if you really want one, don't waste any time locating a Tantive XI team member at the convention. Also, for those who are especially serious about collecting Star Wars Celebration swag, the Tantive XI team members will also be giving away this new, event exclusive button.


EVENT EXCLUSIVE BUTTON

For those of you who can't make it to Chicago, we're going to raffle off two complete sets of these custom vintage style droid figures! Check back here after the convention for more details on that raffle.

Just like the last 2 Celebrations.  If there are any single droids that don't get handed out, they will be given away on the forum to members.  I don't know how it will be done yet.  The last time, it was for the most active members. popcorn

Make sure if you see Chris P. or myself, to say hi. I don't think Chris has a bio up yet. But look for the Tantive shirts.
I'll be at the Archive party and room sales, wandering the halls, and at some of the collecting track panels.

We’re on site and we’ve got droids! If you want one, find Commander Clint (he’s got a TantiveXI shirt today) and I’ll be there too (I’ve got a “La Guerre des étoiles“ shirt). I might come back on with more specific locations but the floor doesn’t open until 1pm.

Nice try on the first picture, but nope. I don't do line ups. Smile You got me on the 2nd picture talking to Jason Smith. Andy, I shave the Santa beard just after New Years. It was too ironic, that I was making toys and looked like the jolly old elf. Let alone, handing out toys at the con with that beard. lol

I'm going to try and take more pictures today, of all the people that I know. Yesterday was just to much of a sensory overload for me.

I'll be up in the collector track panels this afternoon, start at 2.30 ish, for the 3 pm panel on Weird & Wild SW Collectables.

Chis will be at the Collector Track panels all day, as he'll be filming all the panels.

I'll post some more pictures later, as I'm having technical difficulties with my phone and computer. Razz

So while waiting to head back for the room sales, I fell asleep on the couch and missed them.

I'll be heading to the collecting track panels shortly & will be there most of the day. Ending with the swap meet & social at 7 pm.

Andy. I'm starting to feel my age. lol

I sat thru a bunch of great panels today. After the "Kenner: Concept Model to Collectible" panel with Chris Georgoulias & Jim Swearingen, I got to meet Jim Swearingen. He was one of the main concept developers at Kenner, when they started creating the Star Wars toys.
I'll post some pictures when I get home, and have access to my good computer.
