Star Wars Celebration Chicago Collecting Track: 20 Years of Collecting LEGO Star Wars

The Collecting Track is always a highlight of each Star Wars Celebration, and this year’s track was no different with twenty panels covering a variety of topics.

This panel is 20 years of Collecting LEGO Star Wars from Friday 12th April 2019 featuring Duncan Jenkins (The Star Wars Collectors Archive), Jeremy Beckett (Rebel Scum), Graham Hancock (Brick Fanatics) and yours truly.

It was twenty years ago today, there was a company whose name stands for “good play.” They’ve never gone out of style and they’re always guaranteed to raise a smile…Actually it might not be exactly today but it was twenty years ago that two cultural giants, Lucasfilm and the LEGO group, teamed up to create a unique fusion of their respective brands. That initial collaboration in 1999 has grown into the largest Star Wars license with the creation of countless clever products, theme park attractions, video games and even a spinoff television series. Join us as we look back at twenty years of playing well in the Star Wars universe.
