Chris Wyman, of RebelScum.com, just announced that sculptor Brian Muir, who created Darth Vader’s helmet and the Stormtrooper armor for Star Wars: A New Hope, will be signing at Celebration VI.
He will be available from 10:00AM – 2:00PM Thursday – Saturday to sign autographs. You will need one standard $20 coupon for his autograph and there will be copies of his book, “In the Shadow of Vader,” for sale at the convention.
Sam Witwer, who voices Darth Maul on Star Wars The Clone Wars, will be attending Celebration VI. Although he wasn’t previously announced, when the show schedule was posted Monday we found out that he will be holding a panel on Sunday, August 26th, from 1:30 – 2:30 on the Digital Stage (W415A).
There doesn’t appear to be any autograph schedule for him but fans of Sam’s, whether it’s as Darth Maul, Starkiller in the Force Unleashed games or Aidan on “Being Human,” will want to set aside time for his panel.
On Thursday, August 23rd, at 3:30 in room W311ABCD, Ashley Eckstein will host a panel on bullying where she’ll interview Carrie Goldman about her new book, “Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher and Kid Needs to Know About Ending the Cycle of Fear.”
Carrie, as some of you will remember, has a daughter named Katie who was bullied for carrying her Star Wars water bottle to school. Ashley posted a new blog entry about the panel over on the official Star Wars Blog. Ashley and Carrie will discuss the new book and also take questions from the audience.
If you want to pre-order your autograph tickets for Celebration VI then you only have a couple of days left. Friday, August 3rd is deadline to pre-order online to secure your tickets. If you don’t order now you will have to pick them up at the show.
