To all our fellow fans in the Force, it is time to once again come together and celebrate our common love for Star Wars. That’s right, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2015 is finally here and right here is where we will be providing our coverage of the convention. Now before we begin we should cover what we already know going into this seventh Celebration.
What to expect from Hasbro this Celebration?
- Now just like Toy Fair this year, Hasbro has that they will not be showcasing or discussing any product scheduled for the fall (i.e. Episode VII: The Force Awakens merchandise) that has yet to be announced.
- Hasbro will not be having their typically panel focusing on new product. So far the last one where they actually discussed Star Wars action figures was in October at New York Comic-Con.
- This Celebration Hasbro’s booth has become home to “the famous Diorama Workshop Star Wars diorama”. They will be providing over 600 square feet for fans to build in over the course of the show.
- And finally, unless they are keeping one of their best kept secrets, at this time no figure exclusive will be had at this show.
Now despite Hasbro’s scaled-back involvement, Celebration has always had a huge action figure presence and we’ll be carrying all the action here on From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com so make sure to check back for updates as we follow all of the news, reveals and Q&As throughout the weekend’s event.
Now do know that during the four extremely packed days of the show, we’ll be updating our social media pages as fast as we can so make sure to also follow us on our official Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the convention for most up-to-date coverage.
Also Jake and the gents from the Galaxy of Toys Podcast will be bringing you live videos from the con via the app “Hang W/”. We’ll be posting under StarWarsCelebration in cooperation with Chris Fawcett and many others from the Collectors track so for those with the video app make sure to follow us there as well.

This convention is still a day and a half away and the Johnny on the Spots over at the Wolfpack Podcast posted the following image which seems to confirm that Toys ‘R’ Us will most likely be doing a Midnight Madness launch for The Force Awakens toy line.

We are receiving multiple reports that a new The Force Awakens trailer is indeed coming tomorrow during the Kennedy/Abrams panel and has already been played in sound check at the convention center!

Ryan Beise from Galaxy of Toys spotted what appears to be a packaging color change for The Black Series’ 2015 line. This may also work as a confirmation that The Black Series will continue.
