Shopping for Exclusive Items
This is WonderCon wrap-up post #2
With my first trip to WonderCon last year, I also had my first trip to Lucasfilm and ILM. Â We had a great lunch and look around the place, but I didn’t schedule my trip very good and didn’t have much time for a tour. Â So this year I contacted my friends and set up a nice leisurely tour around the place. Â I’ll have to double check and see what photos and videos that I’m allowed to post, but it was pretty fun! Â One of the highlights is to see some of the actual movie props like this Stormtrooper costume.
The other thing that I really enjoyed was being able to pick up some items from the Lucasfilm store. Â Along with the clearance copy of Lego Indiana Jones, I was able to by some crew gear. Â These are items that are made for, and available to the folks who are working on the different projects at Lucasfilm and ILM.
The last items I was able to pick up was not at the store at all. Â LastÂ yearÂ I customized a Mighty Muggs toy for a charity auction. Â StarWars.com made up some t-shirts for the participants and I finally got mine! Â Thanks Pete, Bonnie, and Matt for hanging out before the show!by
