Hake’s Auctions representatives will be attending the upcoming Star Wars Celebration, held on April 7-10, 2023, in London, England. Hake’s Senior Consignment Manager Kelly McClain and Senior Cataloger Mike Bollinger will set up at booth #S209 inside the ExCeL London.
They will display a Boba Fett rocket-firing prototype, along with any consignments they receive while at the convention. Auction catalogs highlighting some of the auction’s big ticket items will be at the booth.
McClain and Bollinger will meet with consignors and potential customers to discuss upcoming auctions and record-setting prices from previous events. Hake’s is on the hunt for Star Wars-related collectibles, including action figures and toys, screen-used props, movie posters, comic books, original art, advertising material, and more.
“I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi than in London at Star Wars Celebration! Star Wars is a worldwide collecting hobby and Hake’s is happy to be set up to meet everyone,” McClain said.
In celebration of Return of the Jedi, they will hand out a selection of con exclusive buttons featuring images of vintage Kenner action figures. The set of five buttons showcase Return of the Jedi figures of Princess Leia Organa (Boushh disguise), the Emperor, Wicket W. Warrick, the Emperor’s Royal Guard, and Yak Face.
“I’m looking forward to attending Star Wars Celebration in London and reconnecting with fellow fans as well as collectors and look forward to further promoting Hake’s to the European collecting community in-person. See you there,” Bollinger said.
Star Wars Celebration will be held at the ExCeL London, located at Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway in London, England. Check out our convention coverage for more details on the show.
