Star Wars Celebration 2022: Event Wrap-Up

Sideshow attended Star Wars™ Celebration from May May 26-29, 2022, broadcasting LIVE from Anaheim, California, in a custom-built exhibition. During booth tours we showcased some of our latest Star Wars™ collectibles, plus products from Hot Toys, Iron Studios, New Zealand Mint, and more.

But that’s not all! Over the course of the weekend, Sideshow conducted interviews, led viewers through the convention floor, and kept our virtual audience feeling just as involved from home. And although the celebration may be over, we’re never done celebrating a galaxy far, far away. Dive into our event wrap-up below to relive all the fun.


Booth Highlights

Sideshow

We brought a whole range of showstopping collectibles to Star Wars Celebration. And in addition to our booth display, fans could also enjoy a photo op with the Grogu™ Life-Size Figure. Displayed in a tranquil forest scene, everyone’s favorite Child made for an adorable “celebrity” meet and greet moment.

The General Obi-Wan Kenobi™ and Darth Vader™ Mythos Statues reminded everyone of the new Obi-Wan Kenobi™ television series — even Deborah Chow!

The Rey™ and Kylo Ren™ Premium Format™ Figures retold the story of an epic battle from Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker™.

Evoking our nostalgia for The Clone Wars™ animated series, the Ahsoka Tano™ vs Darth Maul™ Diorama and the Anakin Skywalker™, Yoda™, and Obi-Wan Kenobi Sixth Scale Figures were a huge draw during the convention.

Hot Toys

With the recent Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones™ anniversary, it’s no wonder Hot Toys pulled out all the stops. Among the fantastic lineup of Star Wars sixth scale figures displayed at Sideshow’s Celebration booth, there were the Chrome Clone Trooper™ and the Battle Droid™ (Geonosis™) Sixth Scale Figures.

To those who prefer the dark side, Hot Toys came prepared. Feast your eyes on the Moff Gideon™ and Darth Vader Sixth Scale Figures.

Finally, the Bad Batch™ brothers amazed and impressed. Featured here are the Wrecker™ and Echo™ Sixth Scale Figures.

Many of Hot Toys’ newest reveals will be hitting our website soon! RSVP on our Coming Soon page to be the first to know when these figures become available for pre-order.

Unruly Industries

Unruly Industries™ brought the Boba Fett™ Silver Variant Bust — a stylish Star Wars Convention-exclusive collectible by artist Jesse Hernandez, AKA Urban Aztec.

New Zealand Mint

The Grogu Silver Coin shone brightly all weekend. Much to collectors’ satisfaction, this precious silver Star Wars collectible by New Zealand Mint features the likeness of the most endearing asset in the galaxy!

Iron Studios

Iron Studios’ 1:10 scale statues were surely crowd pleasers! While we displayed Iron Studios pieces ranging from the prequels to the original trilogy, collectibles from The Mandalorian™ and The Book of Boba Fett™ got the most love.

Pictured above are The Mandalorian on Speederbike™, Ahsoka Tano, and The Mandalorian and Grogu Statues.


Human Cyborg Relations: The C-3PO Custom Bust Art Show

Sideshow brought a brand new exhibition of Star Wars-inspired art by a range of designers, artists, and creators from all over the world. The Human Cyborg Relations display showcased new and unique interpretations of the beloved protocol droid C-3PO™. Sideshow also made a donation to the nonprofit FIRSTŽ in honor of each bust completed for the show.

Featured at Star Wars Celebration were three busts: The Common Thread by Ben Butcher, Protocol of the Wild by Norman Chan and Kayte Sabicer, and See-Threepio by Hot Toys.
