Rancho Obi-Wan Coming to Celebration VI

A replica of the Episode IV Bith band is part of Rancho Obi-Wan
It's less than a month before Star Wars Celebration VI begins in August but new exhibits keep getting added, including Rancho Obi-Wan.

For those of you who don't know, Rancho Obi-Wan is a non-profit museum that houses the world's largest private collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Everything from costumes, to props, to original concept art, to prototypes, to even stuff made by fellow fans. The museum is owned and operated by Steve Sansweet, a Star Wars novel author and Lucasfilm's official fan Ambassador for fifteen years, and is located in Petaluma, California.

The Rancho isn't open to the public - though private tours can be scheduled (see http://www.ranchoobiwan.org/tours.php for more information) - but Star Wars fans at Celebration VI will be able to visit the exhibit, see the world-renowned collection, and even speak to Mr. Sansweet during the conference.

If you're going to Celebration VI, don't forget to make time to see this one-of-a-kind exhibit! This is a very rare opportunity that I don't think many fans will want to miss out on. And if you're passing though Petaluma, CA, you might want to consider a private tour of the Rancho. For more information on the Rancho, please visit http://www.ranchoobiwan.org/.

  1. That is really cool. I wish I could go to the Celebration VI. But I have seen Darth Vader's costume at Disney years ago and Darth Maul's as well. :)



Please keep it clean. And "if you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all" (Thumper from "Bambi"). Other than that, all comments, suggestions, requests, questions, concerns, and compliments are more than welcome!

Post away! :D
