Are you a Star Wars collector, a fan of the films, or even just intrigued by the phenomenon of Star Wars culture? Then join co-authors Gus Lopez and Duncan Jenkins for an inside look into the challenges, hilarity and rewards involved in collecting Star Wars memorabilia.
After five years of research, Gus Lopez and Duncan Jenkins have created Gus and Duncan's Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles, the largest Star Wars collectibles guide ever assembled, covering every Star Wars item from 1977. In its nearly one thousand pages, this international guide covers over 75,000 unique Star Wars items from over a hundred different countries. During this event, Duncan and Gus will share their experiences documenting every known Star Wars collectible and recall some of their adventures tracking down memorabilia from all over the globe. This presentation will include highlights from Gus and Duncan's private collections and show some of the more unusual and humorous Star Wars collectibles that have been produced over the years, from Star Wars airline barf bags to dog food from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
