StarWars.com has announced that Disney Parks will offer a limited-edition Boba Fett Disney Racer for purchase at Celebration V. The collectible is nickel-plated and will be limited to just 500 pieces.
Disney Theme Parks merchandise has posted a page advertising many of the Disney collectibles that will be available exclusively to attendees at the Star Wars Celebration V event taking place in Orlando, August 12-15.
Among the items is a limited edition (10,000 pieces) ‘sneak preview’ collectible of the Star Tours StarSpeeder 1000. As many Star Tours enthusiasts know already, the Star Tours company currently operates the StarSpeeder 3000, a descendant of the 1000 model. As Star Tours II includes material inspired by Episodes 1-3, the vehicle itself will also regress to the earlier 1000 model, so this collectible gives those attending Celebration V a sneak peek at the ‘new’ ride vehicle. It will retail for $24.95.
Among the many other items that will be available at Celebration V is a Donald Duck as Shadow Stormtrooper action figure (limited to 5,000 pieces) for $11.95 and the t-shirt commemorating the ‘Last Tour to Endor’ event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 14.
Disney Theme Parks will be located at booth #441 at the Celebration V event. For more information on the products that will be available exclusively at the show, visit this page.
The Walt Disney World Resort and Celebration V (the premiere Star Wars fan event) have announced that in honor of the convention being held in Orlando this year along with the impending makeover of the Star Tours attraction to Star Tours 2 which will take the motion simulator film to a third dimension (and possible ‘multiple destinations’), there will be a special one-night-only event titled ‘Last Tour to Endor’ where Celebration V attendees are being invited to ‘be the first to be the last’ in an exclusive after-hours Star Wars party.
Admission to the party, which is $75 per guest on top of Celebration V credentials, includes: themed party zones, ‘Star Wars shows,’ a ‘Death Star Disco,’ special Star Wars-themed fireworks and more. Round trip transportation from the Orlando Convention Center is included with the ticket.
Those attending Celebration V who wish to attend the event that takes place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 14 from 8 pm – 1 am (park admission can be as early as 4 pm) can obtain more information and purchase tickets (available on a limited basis) here.
Please note that for those concerned, we do not have reason to believe that this means the Star Tours attraction will close for its lengthy changeover on or about August 14, only that this date was chosen because it falls within the Celebration V event dates and will no doubt be the last hurrah for many attendees. No official closing date for Star Tours has been announced yet by Disney Parks.
