Starwarscelebration.com has opened their exhibitor lotteries for those who have already purchased tickets to Celebration Chicago. To enter the lottery for Hasbro, LEGO and/or Funko, fans must enter a virtual queue for the chance to purchase the convention exclusives individually. You can learn more about the Hasbro exclusives from our Hasbro press release. Fans have until 11:59 PM, April 3rd to enter to win a spot. Once you have entered you will receive a confirmation email.
With 4,000 shopping opportunities and we are assuming Hasbro will allow 2 or 3 per person, there is a good chance 15,000 sets of Maul and Obi-Wan were created.
Funko and LEGO have a history of allowing just one of each item to be sold at shows, which makes their low amount of shopping opportunities understandable. With potential record attendance at Celebration this year, getting these exclusives and possibly entry into the big panels, could prove more difficult than ever.
Good luck to all who enter,
May the exclusives be with us all!
