To be honest for Adam and myself (Andrea), Star Wars week started for us Tuesday night at the Dodgers Baseball game. The stadium was invaded with Jedi, Storm Troopers and Darth Vader. They even gave out free T-shirts to commemorate the night.

So, now, onward to the first day of Star Wars Celebration and our further adventures into geekdom!

First things first;

This place was in chaos this morning!  There were lines for panels, lines for registration and more lines to get to the exhibit hall.

People, aliens, Storm Troopers and “Slave Leias” were every where.

As you can see, it would have been hard for anyone to miss “the droids they were looking for”.

Once we got inside to the exhibit hall, it was sensory overload. There were booths for taking pictures in your favorite Star Wars Scene to buying your favorite toys, so much to see and so much to do it was hard to decide where to truly begin.

I will be posting updates and photos here throughout the four day experience as we wander, explore, see all we can see and do all we can do.  It will be an exhausting amazing adventure and we will bring it all to you from our point of view!

More to come later…

CALLING ALL STAR WARS FANS!!! There is an awesome opportunity to be part of the creation of a new toy experience that I am SURE every geek I know will want to get in on!

“STAR WARS FANS BEING ASKED TO TEST JEDI KNOWLEDGE AGAINST THE FORMIDABLE 20Q ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE! GO TO  http://starwars.20q.net/play  AND PLAY!!!

unnamed

Uncle Milton, creator of the innovative Star Wars™ Science brand of toys, is getting ready to challenge aspiring Jedi in a different way. This time, Uncle Milton will be bringing the popular artificial intelligence game of knowledge, 20Q®, into the world of Star Wars with the Jedi Holocron. Holocrons are artifacts that hold an indeterminable amount of knowledge, so what better way to bring the Holocron into our world, than with 20Q®. Even better, Star Wars™ fans can be part of the creation of this new Star Wars™ Science Jedi Holocron! Star Wars fans are encouraged to visithttp://starwars.20q.net/play  and start playing the game! Think of any being, location, or technology based on all 6 Star Wars movies and TV series and 20Q® will try and guess what you’re thinking. See if you can outsmart the Jedi Holocron! The more times you play, the smarter the artificial intelligence of the Jedi Holocron will become. Look for the Star Wars Science Jedi Holocron on store shelves beginning in Fall, 2015.”

I will also be stopping by their booth during Star Wars Celebration 2015 to talk to them about this exciting new product.  I will post updates, interviews and photos, too!

If you have questions about this toy or any of their products, please post them here so I can ask them, but if you are going, don’t forget to stop by and check them out in person!!
