Star Wars Celebration Chicago gets underway tomorrow, and there’s plenty to check out for LEGO fans. Whether you’re heading to the show floor or just tuning in to the live stream at home, it’s a great time to be a LEGO Star Wars fanatic.
Jeremy over at Rebelscum has compiled a timetable of all the events to watch out for over the next three days.
Thursday, April 11
The head honcho of the LEGO Star Wars theme will be participating in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session over on the r/lego subreddit. It kicks off at 3:30 PM ET/8:30 PM BST, but the moderators are planning on creating a thread a few hours earlier to prepare questions.
Friday, April 12
Expect surprises aplenty at this LEGO-hosted panel, mainly because nobody’s really sure what’s happening with it yet. Jens may make an appearance in-person here, and you might just see the next UCS set revealed, says Jeremy.

The Amazon Treasure Truck is bringing the internet retailer’s exclusive set 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle to Celebration. If previous Treasure Truck promotions are anything to go by, expect some kind of discount on the £119.99/$129.99 model.
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures and LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars have pushed LEGO Star Wars animation in bold new directions, thanks to the creative minds of Bill Motz and Bob Roth. To find out what goes into bringing these plastic pieces to the screen, head to the Fan Stage on Saturday morning.
Star Wars Celebration runs from April 11-14. Check back with Brick Fanatics over the next few days for all the key highlights.
