Star Wars Fan Groups: Making Celebration By the Fans; For the Fans
In order to be included in the Star Wars Celebration Orlando Fan Table line-up, these groups needed to show dedication to their communities, a positive contribution to Star Wars fandom, creativity, and a good sense of fun.
We are honored to have them with us! Find them in the Celebration Experience Exhibit Hall, and in rooms around the convention center. Some are booths and pavilions, and some are major Star Wars experiences imagined and built by fans. Ask them about what they do for Star Wars and for those around them. Trust us, they will add an authentic and inspiring dimension to your Celebration Orlando experience!
Special Exhibit: Room W206ABC
Blast-A-Trooper Charity Event, Celebration Experience Exhibit Hall
It’s the 20th Anniversary of the 501st Legion and we’re inviting fellow Star Wars fans to celebrate with us this year in Orlando! Stop by the 501st Experience room (W206ABC) to visit the streets of Tatooine, sit in Emperor Palpatine's throne, board a Clone Gunship, get trapped in Trash Compactor 3263827, and more! You’ll learn about prop and costume construction, “talk shop” with 501st members from around the world, and see a rare display of items from the Legion Archives.
We’ll also be hosting a number of panels focusing on Legion-quality costuming (check the Celebration mobile app and the printed onsite guide for details); demonstrating the agility (or lack thereof) of Stormtroopers in the always-entertaining Troop-Athlon; giving away prizes for participants in our popular Droid Hunt game; and assembling for the biggest 501st group photo of the year!
With Easter occurring during Celebration this year, we’re also hosting a special egg hunt for fans 10 and under on Sunday morning in the 501st room at 10AM! Learn more about our organization and Celebration activities at www.501st.com.

Formed by two fans in Saratoga Springs, New York in 2012, it has grown to over one hundred members online, and our meetings now average forty fans at each. The goal of the club is simple: To educate collectors in the New York State area about all aspects of collecting Star Wars memorabilia, toys, and promotional items; provide social gatherings of like-minded collectors to share ideas and experience; and finally to promote integrity in the collecting community by championing fairness and preventing fraudulent collectables.
At Celebration, our members will be giving away free items to promote both the club and the collecting community at large.

What better place to do that than at the home of all-things Star Wars, Celebration Orlando!
Calling all Star Wars Celebration Solos! Nervous about traveling to Star Wars Celebration alone or for the first time?
Fear not, the Flying Solo group was created to give you a wingman as you travel the galaxy.
The idea for the Flying Solo group at Star Wars Celebrations came about when one solo flyer at Celebration Anaheim found two wingmen, and their adventures became legend. During the four days they met many new friends, a number of them also solo flyers. The Flying Solo at Star Wars Celebrations Facebook group was formed, giving these founding members, and now many more, a way to reach across the galaxy and stay connected with the friends made at Star Wars Celebrations.
We are looking to recruit new members to our squadron by inviting other solo flyers to join us. All wings report in. https://www.facebook.com/groups/flyingsoloswc/.

Indiana Star Wars Collecting Community
The Indiana Star Wars Collecting Community was founded in 2014 to promote and encourage a sense of community among Star Wars collectors throughout the state of Indiana. While most of our events take place in the greater Indianapolis area, we have members from all corners of the state as well as from neighboring states. Our collecting interests are very diverse and range from vintage Kenner to posters, patches, trading cards, artwork, busts, statues and the most recent action figure releases.
We hold quarterly meetings at member homes to socialize and check out collections. For our annual Fall Social we rent a hall and hold a huge swap meet, hand out exclusive swag, play Star Wars themed games, have special guest speakers and collect items for Toys for Tots. We also participate in community service, organize movie outings and attend several Midwest toy shows together.
We hope to use our fan table to spread awareness that a community of collectors exists in Indiana and to interact with other clubs, fans, attendees and collectors who share our passion for all things Star Wars. We love sharing stories with others who have similar interests, and we cannot wait to meet you at our table.

Lee's previous work includes Paint Masters for Master Replicas on their licensed Boba Fett Helmet, Boba Fett Blaster and X-Wing model (Master Replica/EFX).

The Running Stormtrooper
Look for the Running Stormtrooper in the Celebration Experience Exhibit Hall.
Fear not, the Running Stormtrooper isn’t a ‘Rogue One.’ In fact, he’s a Trooper who’s trying to do some good in the Galaxy.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and to promote and raise money for the wonderful charity Make-A-Wish, this military man and Star Wars fan has set himself a very important mission: On April the 23rd he will be attempting to set a World Record at the 2017 London Marathon dressed in full Stormtrooper costume. However this is just the warm up, as on May the 4th he will be attempting to run 40 miles around the world famous Pinewood Studios again in full costume. Join him at his Star Wars Celebration booth and check him out running on his treadmill (a Celebration first!), where he will be running every day for this Ultra challenge, and explaining about the wonderful ‘wishes’ that Make-A-Wish grant to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life threatening conditions.
Be it Facebook, Twitter or Instagram; get your cameras ready as you’ll always find this Trooper has the time for a Stormtrooper Selfie. Help the Running Stormtrooper find ‘A New Hope’ for Make-A-Wish as he has pledged to raise £10,000 (approx $12500). Stormtroopers aren’t known for hitting their targets but hopefully he will hit this one!
