A second chance to see Brick Fanatics at Star Wars Celebration Chicago

If you missed yesterday’s 20 Years of Collecting LEGO Star Wars panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, don’t fret – there’s another opportunity to catch it this afternoon.

Today’s panel won’t be entirely the same, however, this time focusing on some of the key milestones LEGO Star Wars has conquered over the past two decades. Even if you did head along to yesterday’s panel, then, you’ll want to head down to the LEGO booth at 1:15 PM ET for what’s sure to be a fascinating discussion.

Once again, Brick Fanatics Editor Graham Hancock will be joined by Rebelscum’s Jeremy Beckett, Jedi News’ James Burns, and Duncan Jenkins to offer some illuminating insight into 20 years of collecting LEGO Star Wars.

That’s not the only point of interest in Chicago for LEGO fans today, though. From 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM, you’ll be able to get your hands on 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle from the Amazon Treasure Truck at MPWest, Lvl 3 #4000. As is typical with Treasure Truck promotions, there may be a discount to be had on this Amazon-exclusive LEGO set.

Meanwhile, animated series enthusiasts will want to head to the Fan Stage (Room W470AB) at 11:45 AM for the LEGO Star Wars Animation Panel, where you’ll be able to hear from the key creatives behind LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures and LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars, Bill Motz and Bob Roth.

Star Wars Celebration continues through Monday, with plenty of headline reveals yet to come – including our first look later today at EA’s new Star Wars videogame, Jedi: Fallen Order. Yesterday, the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode IX took to the stage to reveal the movie’s title and teaser trailer.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
