Star Wars Collectors to Share Memories in Star Wars Celebration Orlando Video Project
March 30, 2017


Fans to Record Their Memories of ‘Star Wars’ Collecting on Film’s 40th Anniversary


You cannot freeze your fandom in carbonite, but you can preserve your Star Wars memories on video at this year’s Star Wars Celebration at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center.


Fans of the iconic franchise are invited to film themselves discussing the events, people, and collections that have fueled their love for Star Wars Collecting at the Collecting Track Social Lounge in Room W305. These “re-Collections” are limited to two guests per session and recordings will last approximately 10 minutes. Videos will be displayed in the Collecting Track Social Lounge and may be shared again at future Celebration events.


When completing the online registration form, participants will be asked to select their preferred time for recording, with the option of selecting a second or third choice as well. Additional times for walkups will be provided to those who do not reserve their spot for a recording session. To sign up ahead of time, reserve your time here.


As an added bonus, each participant will receive an exclusive patch available inside the Collecting Track Social Lounge. Similar patches given away at past Celebration events have become highly sought after collector’s items for Star Wars fans.


With anticipation building toward the April launch of Star Wars Celebration, fans and collectors can stay on top of every happening in the Star Wars universe at Star Wars Celebration Collecting Track Facebook page.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
