WIN THIS STUFF AT STAR WARS CELEBRATION!

Written by Pirate Queen Cay for DisFanReview


One of the great thing about comic book conventions or events like Star Wars Celebration is all the free stuff you go home with. sometimes it's posters or lanyards or are or... well, who knows what. However, it's usually just stuff. Flotsam and jetsam. Stuff that ends up getting tossed eventually, and nothing that really has, or gains any value. Well, we here at DisFanReview want to change that. We want to our friends and fans at Star Wars Celebration to go home with some really cool stuff.

Like what? Well how about original issues of MARVEL's vintage 1970's and 80's Star Wars comics. No reprints or copies. real actual issues with real value. Or how about sealed Disney Vinylmation toys? from the very first Star Wars series. Very hard to find right now. Maybe some Hasbro action figures or Star Wars digest comics, or Star Wars manga... Anyway you get the picture. We have a lot of stuff to give away. And you want it. Right?

Well my friends, the game is very simple. All you have to do is find Admiral Duke, the handsome guy pictured above. If you see him, stop him, and say I LOVE DisFanReview! If you do this you will win one of these fine items! However, if you do one better and show him this very post on your smart phone or tablet, he will give you one of the very best of the prizes.

The Hatbox Ghost appeared in the Haunted Mansion for a short time around the opening of this classic attraction in 1969. Although brief, his presence sparked a decades-long following, and this reclusive resident of the Haunted Mansion was never forgotten. We’re excited that he will soon materialize once again!
