PopMinded by Hallmark will release five new, event-exclusive items at the convention, held from April 11-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Fans can head over to booth No. 2615, where PopMinded will continue its tradition of releasing event-exclusive buttons with a different design each day of the convention. The company will also host character visits and have a Star Wars-themed photo booth.
Here are all the new goodies PopMinded will sell at its booth.
It’s summer, but show me ornaments with two of the most iconic dynamic duos in Hollywood history, and I’ll be celebrating Christmas early. Die-hard fans will appreciate the Beginnings: C-3PO and R2-D2 Keepsake Ornaments two-pack, which is based on Ralph McQuarrie’s original pre-production art and concept for Star Wars: A New Hope.
Princess Leia’s bounty-hunter alter ego from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is joining Hallmark’s Itty Bittys line at the Star Wars Celebration. The exclusive Boushh Itty Bittys plush is equal parts adorable and bada**.
Bring all your Star Wars Itty Bittys along for the celebration with the ultimate carrier based on Chewbacca’s bandolier. The one-size-fits-all Chewbacca Bandolier Itty Bittys Carrier can hold nine Itty Bittys plush.
The fan-favorite Jedi apprentice from Star Wars: The Clone Wars will continue the line of cute pins. The Ashoka Tano PXL8 Enamel Pin — an 8-bit rendition of the character — is the perfect accessory to your outfit for the day.
I always say that many people don’t understand that there are more spices than just salt and pepper, but this particular shaker set is making me partial to the two. The Darth Maul Salt and Pepper Shaker set is hilariously based on the moment in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace when Obi-Wan Kenobi cuts him in half. His torso holds pepper while his legs hold salt.
PopMinded is continuing the Star Wars fun at the convention, too. Licensing Creative Manager for Hallmark and Creative Director of PopMinded Christine Taylor will host a panel of Hallmark product artists and creators on Saturday, April 13 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. They will discuss the 2019 line of Star Wars Keepsake Ornaments and Itty Bittys, they plan to tease some of the Star Wars line coming next year, and they will announce other surprises and giveaways.
